Home Buying in Philadelphia>Question Details

Robb, Home Buyer in Leesville, LA

Are there real estate companies in Philly that specialize in home identification,loans, and remodels? (e.g. what the Property Brothers do on HGTV)?

Asked by Robb, Leesville, LA Tue Sep 18, 2012

After many years traveling the globe, my wife & I will be getting out of the Army and moving back to Philadelphia. We are eager to find something in Society Hill or Queen Village but we would love to find something under a million dollars and plan the renovation ourselves. I would like help 1) identifying properties that can be made into an ideal home at a lower cost than the current market rate homes, 2) structuring the loan in such a way to include renovation costs (if possible), driving the appropriate renovations within budget. 3) Identifying contractor groups that are used to doing high end renovations that have technology like CGI that can help the less artistic client envision the final product.
Thanks!
RB

Robb,

I would be delighted to talk with you. I am a licensed architect and licensed realtor. Your email is exactly the type of stuff I am set up to assist with. It won't be like the show where only two people do all the work, but I have all the connections you desire to help you achieve your goals. It sounds like a great project you want to undertake.

Are you ever in the Philadelphia area? I strongly believe it would be best to set up a face to face meeting. Please contact the architecture firm of Converse Winkler Architecture at 610-664-0806 and ask for me or use the contact information below.

Hi Robb, my firm has actually advised a couple other independent developers like yourselves hae a successful project. I would welcome the opportunity to connect with you and introduce you to my colleagues; and show you some examples of our work. Obviously the name Sotheby's fits with the high-Ed renovation you ate trying to accomplish. Cheers!
