Hi Missy,

As a Real Estate Professional, I can only answer questions about houses not about people or scenarios in communities.

In the meantime, you can refer to the following website to determine some of a neighborhoods features.

I am a licensed PA Agent! Please contact me for all your residential questions, buying, selling, and renting needs in the near future! I'm never too busy for your inquiries!

I found my niche! I will be licensed in NJ by winter of 2013!

I live right across the blvd. from Mayfair/Holmesburg, in the Rhawnhurst section of NE Philly. It's a great neighborhood. Pretty low crime (petty crime occurs.. but tell me where it doesn't?)
In recent years there has been an influx of transplants moving around there mostly because of larger homes in the city, cost is pretty good, low crime and you will still be around public transportation, parks, night life, minutes from downtown....

Licensed real estate agents cannot answer this. Good/bad is subjective.

Below is a good link for keeping track of reported crimes in the area. It lists the type of crime, when it occurred, and where it occurred. It may be wise to track this for a bit to determine if you feel the neighborhood is safe. Hope this helps.

We have had under 30% inflation in that time. I would look to see prices go lower. More so as interest rates go higher. Going from 5% to7% interest rates takes away 23.9% of buying power. WHen you remove about 1/4 of a houses price that will change things a lot. ... more

The bottom line is that the housing boom/fallout had very little effect on NE Philadelphia. Have you ever seen a foreclosure sign in Mayfair? Please don't get me wrong there are issues in this area, but all in all the market is steady without fluctuation. Homes in West Mayfair range from 135k up to 175k depending on, of course location, condition, amenities etc. If your block is Brighton, that is a more popular location. Remember also, that while you are not taking any significant loss on your property, if you are trading "up" you will most likely save more then you will loose. Example: the Market is down 10 percent so 10 percent off your west mayfair home of say 150k is 15k putting the price at 135k with a loss of 15k. But....if you are trading up to a home that is say 250k with a 20 percent loss, that totals a 60k price reduction compared to your 15k loss. You actually are 35k ahead of the game. For more info on selling at the highest price visit my website fro a free eBook, "Sellers Secrets".
Good Luck!
