I don't know your area but according to the map, it seems your area is semi rural or rural? Home selling outside cities and their suburbs does take longer and it's possible the realtors know not to over value your home because buyers will not pay higher prices. The BEST strategy is ask these realtors to show you "comps" - homes in your neighborhood that have recently sold, homes that are under contract and those currently listed for sale. You can also use Zillow and at the top under "Listing Type", make sure "Sold homes" is checked. Then look at the sold homes and see the dates and amounts the sold for. Buyers use this information when submitting offers. ... more

Are you listed through a real estate agent? If so, I would have a chat with my agent as to why the price keeps changing.

I wouldn't just walk away. I would try and see if there are short sale, or deed in Lieu options available for you. Generally speaking I work with investors that would be able to service you 1 day out of foreclosure, 1 day out of deed in lieu, 1 day out of short sale, and 1 year out of BK. Let me know we can discuss more ... more

Near the school New Foundations Charter school (I think it is near either Rhawn and Torresdale or Frankford) there are dome power lines that seem very dangerous and when ever I pass by there there are many dead birds so some one should do something about this because those birds should not have to die and people can get very hurt. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
I'm sorry for your troubles. Rent to Owns are risky under the best of circumstances. I have no real advice other than consider checking out your next place to live. With bad credit now, you must be in an aggressive mode to have it repaired and qualified to purchase in Feb 2015.
Your landlord/seller's are not living up to their obligations according to your report and the Landlord Tenant Law. Review that law and forget about the rent to own. If they don't repair the appropriate items, they may have broken the terms of the lease/purchase agreement and give you options. Ultimately this is a legal matter and you may be best off to consult an attorney to review your situation and documentation.

Hi Reann, the List Price is what every Seller is asking whether Bank owned or a traditional sale. However, when you find a property you may like to make an Offer, your Real Estate Broker would guide you through the process by sharing actual Closed Comparable sales of similar properties within a 1 mile radius closed within the most recent 6 months. Your Offer should fall in line with current values of those properties and is dependent on the condition of the property as well.

If you are not currently committed to another Broker, I would be very happy to assist you in finding properties and negotiating a great deal. Please feel free to contact me directly.
