I recently looked at a house in Aston and really liked it. However, I am concerned with the close proximity to Chester. Would you recommend buying in Aston or elsewhere in Delaware Co.?

Hi Sjonesu,

It's not difficult to find tenants for rental homes. What can make it difficult is the lack of advertising. If you list a rental home with a Realtor you can attract more people and find a handful of quality tenants through the Multiple Listing Service (the database that Realtors have access to). As to determine the average rent in Darby, it varies; you can have the Realtor advise you as to how much you would like to rent to be; and that could be based on how much do you need to make as well as how much other rentals in the area are being listed for in your area that are similar to your home.

If you would like for me to help you find tenants for your rental home and would like to hear what my analysis, click on the link:

That all depends on your definition of "decent". Only you can decide if an area is right for you or not. Fair Housing Laws prevent Realtors such as ourselves to offer opinions on areas the way we would need to to answer this question "properly."

I would check the crime statistics for the area. Your question is kinda general and might get various answers which are opinions. At least the crime stats are factual.

You can also do a driveby on a Sat or Sun when some of the neighbors will be outside and available for you to ask them directly.
