Were you looking to own or lease? That could determine your purchasing power. Privately owned property is slightly inflated right now because of a increased demand. If you are purchasing, you need to determine if you are going toget a conventional loan or an FHA loan. Alot of condos are not FHA approved, there is a website that you can check for FHA approved condos if that is the road you would like to take.
I normally provide my buyers with a list a questions to get answered prior to making any comittments to a condo, homeowner association fees can vary greatly. You also want to know about the "common areas" and how they can affect you as a tenant/buyer as well.
If I could answer any more questions about purchasing condos in Philly or in general feel free to contact me via email at email@example.com or 610-792-5900.

Just so you know, your request is possible but it's rather broad. Your best bet is to first understand what area(s) you like, then find a rental that works within your budget.
