Looking for Philly Suburb

Asked by alishabidetti, Philadelphia, PA Mon Dec 3, 2012

The Army may move us to Philly. Since there are no Army posts there, we are forced to live as "civilians". We are moving from TX where everything is bigger. I'm trying to find a rental, 4bdrm, 2bath, 2car garage, big backyard for our giant playset, pet friendly, good schools as our only child will start kindergarten in a yr. We can surely do a 3bdrm as long as there's a basement or office area. I'd ideally like 2000sq ft or more. Our budget is no more than $2300/mo. Is that even possible in PA or NJ? lol. In TX, that'll get you a mini mansion. lol Thanks!!

Hi Alisha (& spouse),

First of all, although it's 45 minutes from Philly, we do have Joint Base McGuire-Ft Dix in South Jersey, so I am familiar with military moves and financing programs.

Yes, what you describe exists, in fact I just rented one that had all your requirements except only a 1-car garage for $2,000.

In addition, my firm, Sotheby's, specializes in the type of high-end rental you are looking for.

If you have time today, please consider emailing me in private and I will reply with some listings, some community info so you can learn about different towns (some are rated on various "Best Places to Live" lists) andmore questions.

Please include where in Philly you and/or your spouse may have to travel to daily for work.
