Can anyone recommend a good suburban neighborhood for a young international professional?

Answer

Many academic and medical professionals in Oakland pick the Fox Chapel area because it is a quick commute with many options. Excellent public schools increase local taxes, but the communities that feed into the school district are quite diverse. Population density is low because of parks, golf courses, and 1 acre lot minimums in the Fox Chapel Borough, but the adjacent communities are more affordable, but offer the same convenient commute and suburban / country living.

Should we be working with a real estate agent?

Answer

A Buyers agent offers many advantages.  The buyers side of the commission is paid by the seller and the buyer may know of properties coming on line. The buyers agent should also be able to tell you what you need to have in place to make an offer. The market has heated up considerably, and nimble and prepared buyers will have the best shot at landing a good value (since such properties will frequently receive competing bids).

my listing in MLS is not on Zilliow?

Answer

You can get a pretty good idea of what is going on by simply googling the address of the listing (street and number as well as zip code).  Most listings will appear on sites that feature homes for sale, such as Zillow, as well as major real estate companies.  This process usually takes a few days after MLS listing.If the listing is widespread on these sites, but missing from one or two sites, it is a problem with the sites missing the listing, but if it is missing everywhere, it is a problem with the listing.
