Hi, jfoproject.

I'm not exactly sure what your question is, but I'm assuming you are asking about values in this section of Roxborough/Manayunk.

If you take a look at what prices have done in 19128 over the last few years (, you will see that this part of Philadelphia has held up its values well; even through the real estate downturn.

I personally live in this area, and know it very well. If there is anything else I can do to help you out, please let me know.

I just bought my home in Manayunk. I used Pillar to Post. They were absolutely phenomenal!! Inspection was extremely well done. Enabled me to get a great price and ensure my insurance rates stayed low. Also, I receive a HUGE packet listing everyting ( in substantial detail) that was inspected, the next day! Its a great tool even now when planning renovations or needing to fix things! Good Luck!!
Also, I asked the sellers for a 1 year home warranty, American Home Shield. Best thing ever!! Sent someone out to fix dryer/dishwasher! (anything they can't fix, they replace!)

Hello Leigh,

if you can get a construction loan you should be able to get permanent financing. Maybe you are going to a lender that does FNMA and Freddie loans only. You probably need a portfolio lender.
Call me and I'll be gald to put you in the right doirection.

Best Regards,

Bruce Lang answered:
Leigh. Is the new construction a house or condo? Are you a builder or consumer? If it's a condo, financing is there but it's harder. The development needs to be stable and met other guidelines of sales. If it's a house, lenders treat it the same way as a resale so you should have problems. If you are looking for a construction loan, that is still harder than it used to be. Good luck ... more

Roxborough is one of the safest areas in the city! Many police and fire personnel live there. I love East Falls and know many young single people who come home alone late at night and go out jogging early in the morning. I'd encourage my own young daughter to live in either neighborhood! And if you need help finding a place, I'd love to help you. My name is Zeta Cross. I have been selling real estate here for 10 years. I am a green realtor!
