Iâ€™m sure a Philly REALTOR will chime in shortlyâ€”Philly is my hometown, and I have family with a condo in Rittenhouse Square. But professionally, I am not familiar with this market. I just wanted to state that historically condos do not appreciate as quickly as single family homes, and tend to stay on the market longer when put up for resale. Also, association & maintenance fees, plus "special assessmentsâ€ must be considered... A larger condo, if it is within your comfort range financially, will most likely be the better investment. Best of luck and happy hunting!
