Do you mean outside of Philadelphia county ? Or outside of center city ?
The taxes are low in all of Philadephia. If you are looking to stay in Philadelphia county, why not look at Fishtown or NE Philadelphia ? There is a lot to choose from in the $150 to $170K price range, especially in NE Philadelphia. To search for homes, go to http://www.thesomersteam.com or http://www.searchinphiladelphia.com .
