Asked by Loracny, Reading, PA • Mon Mar 19, 2012
I currently rent a 1000 sq ft, 2 BR, 1.5 Bath townhome in Shillington & me & my two children have outgrown it. I have been searching & looking at townhomes in the 19602 zip code, across the street from RACC/ Penn St/bridge area & area right over the bridge on Lancaster/422 over the last two months. I have been attracted to these areas since I feel they are not too deep into the city and are not expensive since most range from 49-50K , which would reduce my monthly significantly from what I pay now to rent. The townhomes I have seen in these areas also have an average of 2000sq ft (give or take) with 1.5 or sometimes 2baths.
My friends & family believe that I shouldn't live "across the bridge" because of the negativity surrounding Reading & advise if I should want to re-sell in the future, it wouldn't sell at a profit. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Does the City of Reading plan on doing anything to improve the city to attract future home buyers like me?
