Kathy Burgreen answered:
As much as you need a realtor for personal reasons, unfortunately most realtors do not work with renters. The reason is the commission paid by the landlord / property manager is very small and not worth their time. There is a solution:

What you CAN DO: Call a few local brokerage offices and speak with the Office Manager or Broker in Charge. Ask to be connected to a NEW licensed agent. You need to understand that new licensed agents need experience and clients. They will start out with renters until they get enough experience, then they drop the rental market and only work with buyers and sellers. Renters eventually become buyers for the most part, so new agents need this experience and contacts.

I know it's not what you want but you need to understand that realtors are basically self employed independent contractors. They choose who they want to work with and have the right to deny working with you because you are looking at rentals.

Hi Ruba,
What is your question? The Granary is certainly within commuting distance to Drexel University.
There are many other rentals both in smaller, more private buildings and other large high rise buildings that are closer and an easier commute to Drexel.

Please call me to discuss your requirements and wish list. I'd be happy to send you some options that will meet your needs and wants. Then I can show you and tour you through your Top Picks.

You can reach me anytime directly at 267-255-9640. Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

All the best,

Lovely house, but I'm not quite sure I understand the question - are you inquiring about how long it might take to sell a comparable property in the area, or are you interested in potentially buying the house if it's still available? Either way, I'd be happy to help you out; just let me know what you need via my contact info below! Take care, and have a great day!
