There are areas that are north of the city in northern liberties,fishtown or perhaps temple a bit further as well as the art museum..... you have more options to consider in north part as a posed to the south.

Keeping in mind your length of ownership we have to consider the investment aspect of the home.

Center city is expanding you will get you return

That's right around the corner from where I have a new construction house. 4 bedrooms 2.5 baths about 2600 sq ft. There is a lot of new construction in this area and it's looking to continue building up. I have an Open House there this coming Sunday from 12-2pm and you're more than welcome to stop by and ask questions. 1908 Reed Street.

I would also agree with Edmund and click on the link to check out crime statistics through the Philadelphia Police Department reports.

You can also check out my site for information and links to schools and crime stats rquinn.mustseespace.com

Good luck and if the place you like is the 1336 S 17th Street it's a nice space hope it works out for you.

Hi Stephanie~I understand your concern. Unfortunately, no realtor can sway you to a certain area.
Another site that is useful is
http://www.NeighborhoodScout.com

What I recommend to clients is to drive around the neighborhood at different times also.

Good Luck! Please e-mail if you have any additional questions-
