Hey Tom.

As the other professionals mentioned, there are not many lots left and your best bet is to rehab at this time.

Without talking further, its hard to pinpoint your needs for a desirable area. ... more

Timothy Garrity answered:
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.

jfoproject answered:
you are as old as you feel. also a widow, here's some food for thought.
Manayunk is hilly. Do you have any physical limiations that working hills is a problem ?
Winter ice and snow, get someone to clear for you, or will you take care of it ?
Myself staying around the young, can make you feel young, is that what you want
ditto the rent for a year, thought interests rates are so low your wasting 8-10K.
Get an experienced realtor, the younger realtors don't really know this area, your not the person to take on their learning curve

Lauren answered:
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!)

Under the law there are a number of topics that a real estate agent is not permitted to discuss.

The Philadelphia PD has an excellent interactive map that can help you ascertain crime stats for an area.
