I am a Realtor that assist buyers in that area of Philadelphia. Fishtown offers easy access to down town center city and transportation. Home prices are available to most income levels as well as the higher end homes and developers offering new condos and townhomes. Its hard to predict the future however, fishtown like the center city market is very similiar. Prices over the past year and into the near future are stable eventhough we are not in a sellers market. I see opportunities for home buyers with more homes to choose from and more negotiation opportunities unlike previously.
Feel free to visit my website http://www.MyPhilaRealtor.com to search the entire MLS for homes for sale. There you can select philadelphia as the county and then select fishtown as the town....then simply click search to view all the current active listings in Fishtown. You can also use my Market SnapShot to get a feel as a buy for what properites have sold for as well as whats currently listed...however you would need to choose a subject property...maybe a home you might be considering.
Contact me If I can be of any futher assistance. I wish you the best on your home search and am here to be of any futher assistance to you.
