Just to add to what has already been said on this topic..........

I agree that it is all about the numbers. In the long run you may spend more on a rental, but the real question I would ask is, are you tied to the seven (7) years? Is there a possibility that you may have to leave sooner rather than later?

If you haven't lived in the city yet, it may be a good option to rent and test out the different neighborhoods. If there is nothing tying you to the city, then I don't see a rental being a bad decision.

Feel free to give me a call or shoot me an e-mail at any time and I'd be more than happy to discuss some options with you.

This responds to you inquiry about the condo for sale at 1010 Race St., unit 6E. Cond fee is $ 519 per month, and since Jan. 2013, it went up to $ 846.56 per month due to a special assessment, so an
extra 327.56 per month... I believe this special assessment will go for 10 months Real Estate tax for 2013 is $951. If you have any questions or would like to visit the condo, please contact me directly at cell 215--888-1775, or email:

Gita Bantwal answered:
The agent may not know about special assessments, The seller will inform you if they know about it.. When your offer is accepted, the seller will apply for a resale certificate from condo association. It will have all the information including the budget. You should read it carefully.
Sometimes it may not have been assessed at time of writing the offer for example if there is a bad winter , they have special assessments at end of winter.

You could find a place for that much in basically all of center city: Washington Square West, Old City, Bella Vista, Queen Village, Rittenhouse, Fitler Square. Parts of Graduate Hospital are good too (stay between 17th and 22nd). Personally, as a female who has lived here for quite a few years, I've felt safest in Wash. Square West...since it's surrounded by good areas and has a ton of foot traffic. The same can be said for Rittenhouse, although you won't get as good of a place for your money. ... more

Bruce Lang answered:
Recently houses have done better in general, however there are still some condo buildings that people wait to have something come up for sale. While the new construction inventory in condos is slowly burning off, there is still an opportunity to make money "on the buy". One of the best ways to make money long term is to buy right. As an example, cash buyers are able to load up inn buildings where financing collapsed and can get "steals" and make real returns. The victory building is one of those. 2101 chestnut is another. One key in condos is location' location! Location. I know. Not a big shock but it's critical. ... more

Larry Lichtman answered:
Hi Chris,

I agree with Ryan. It is a fantastice time to buy a family home to live. However, there are also some really good investment properties available at prices that make sense. These rental properties can provide a better than stock market average rate of return. Plus the additional benefits of tax deductible depreciation and equity appreciation over the long term.

All the best,
Larry Lichtman
