That particular property is now under contract, I'm afraid. When you search using public sites, the information can be out-of-date. It was a foreclosure, taken by the bank in '06. It was listed in August at $21,900, and sold within a week (hasn't closed yet, so I don't know what it sold for).

I have other clients who are doing this as well -- buying now, renting 2-3 years, then planning to move in later.

Pittsburgh still has very affordable housing (moreso lately) -- and not just foreclosures, which have other problems (e.g., poor condition that makes it difficult to renovate and manage them long distance).

As the first responder said, you need a dedicated local agent working with you to find properties. Let me know when you're planning a trip; I'd be happy to assist you.
