I agree with James. At least in the short term. The area is has a lot of up side potential. Other neighborhoods in S Philly like Grad hospital, Bella Vista and the Passyunk Ave areas have much higher asking prices for the real estate. Many buyers and investors are starting relieze the bargins in the Point Breeze area and are moveing and building there. Part of Point Breeze is now called Newbold (Broad to 18th and Snyder to Washington Ave), this section has become very popular and I have had several buyers choose this area to live because they see value and the potential for appreciation. In the end you need to see the value, do some research and check out the area for yourself. Good luck, I'm sure you will find somthing.
