Is the area around 47th & Sansom in W. Philly up and coming?

Asked by Nicole, Overbrook, KS Sat Mar 8, 2008

I'm beginning to see a lot of re-development in University City area from the college campuses up to the high 40's around Pine, Spruce and even Sansom? How far is that re-development expected to spread? As high as 48th or even 50th & Sansom

The answer is yes. It has spread that high and I think it will continue to spread more. However far it goes, real estate values will beneft as the outskirt areas of University City will be "close to Univ Cityy" and offer attractive real estate prices lower than Univ City. Basically as Univ City grows, everything around it will grow and benefit as well. Also, I have noticted that the houses in 19139 on the outskirts of Univ City sell quite fast in this slower market. Thus, there is still speculation and investment going on. Visit our webstie for more helpful hints.
