I've heard the Pittsburgh area is great for rentals because of all the fracking going on in the area and the need for temporary housing. When we were checking out Pitt with Eldest a couple of years ago, there was talk about how tight even the motel/hotel inventory was because of this spike in demand. I would think that a rental with that kind of demand could sell well.

Didn't your broker give you comps? While they are a lagging indicator, they will give you some idea of what is going on. We've been looking in the Hershey and Gettysburg market, both of which experienced declines and seem to be rebounding VERY slowly, but rebounding none the less.
