East Parkside is now within the University of Pennsylvania expanded Catchment area. However, within the original Catchment area, there is still plenty of redevelopment room.

The Microsoft School of the Future, Please Touch Museum and infrastructure improvements all point to a bright future. But for now, you need a long term investment outlook. Society Hill was down and out in the 1950s; Graduate Hospital was daring in the early 1990s.

If you're looking for shorter term investment areas, hit me up. We can discuss where major developers are now planning.

Hi Robert, Location is key for most people, or should be! An agent can assist you in searching for a rental. When are you coming? In the resort areas many units can be rented off-season when the tourists go away, post-Labor Day. You can post an inquiry at my website, and search rentals there as well. ... more

We assume you mean Center City. In Philly downtown refers to South Philadelphia.
The neighborhoods of most interest will probably be Society Hill, Bella Vista, Rittenhouse Square, Head House Square and the Graduate Hospital area. Find a realtor who is knowledgeable about the Center City areas and you will be fine. Good Luck with your move. ... more

Hi Ap,

First question I have for you is are you a first-time home buyer?

The way you find a buyer agent is to start talking to Realtors. Sure some will tell you that they are experts in one particular area but you need a well rounded buyer agent. Someone who is an expert in every aspect of real estate. Just knowing the difference between a split level and a cape isn't going to help you in the long run.

What helps buyers is an agent who is ethical, honest and will fight for their clients no matter what. One who will put their client's interests ahead of their own and not just want a commission check.

I just had an entire deal fall apart recently because the seller's agent didn't want to present my client's offer because the agent didn't like it. No agent has the right to decide which offers their clients see or don't see.

So, in answer to your question, you need to talk to Realtors and ask questions and at the end of the day, which Realtor is going to the best Realtor for you and help you in every way.

I'd love to talk with you further. Feel free to either e-mail me or contact me at (215) 669-0589.

Hi Julie,

I would need to do more research and have more information on a particular property that you are interested in. I would do you a disservice if I just said it was worth it or threw numbers out there at you. If you can be so kind to send me more information, I would be happy to give you some advice.

Hi Jim

Great question! Well, it all depends on when you plan to purchase your new home. If you plan to purchase within the next few months, you should apply for the mortgage now. You should apply before you start your home search no matter what this way the mortgage consultant can find the best program for you both and if you find a home you both want, you will be ready to put the offer in otherwise you will have to take a step back and take care of your mortgage situation.

University City has already expanded. The further you go, it gets a little rougher but prices are attractive.

It is hard to count on anything the city may or may not do. Sure there might be consideration. Am curious how that would affect your purchase decision ? A special grant or the like ? What area are you considering ?

Fred Glick answered:
With prices as they are, people are getting more value as they get closer to Center City/Rittenhouse Square. Therefore, eventually the area south of there that is attached to Center City should increase in value after it goes down a bit to stabilize. I can't call the area Graduate Hospital anymore since Penn has now taken over the building and eliminated the name, but I know what you are talking about.

I actually have a house plan to fill in the lots that are there which is a single 3 story cement structure that can be varied between storefront plus two units to a single family.

Once we fill in the area with good property, businesses open and restaurants start serving great food and make themselves as a destination, then the are will be great.

This is just my opinion, but it has worked in other places. Look at Northern Liberties that does not even connect directly to Center City.

KC- In terms of investment you have to think about what you are trying to accomplish. Are you looking for immediate cash flow? Or are you looking for the property to appreciate over a period of time then you get a return on your investment? Generally speaking the area's values are good and many would consider the area to be a desirable place to own a piece of real estate. ... more

If your moving to the USC area I recommend Silverlake or Echo Park. You can probably get a 1 bedroom or single in the 1200 range. Other areas worth considering are Culver City and the Miracle Mile. Not close to campus but great places to live. Check out Craigslist or another place that has a TON of rentals is

Ok, now we are on to something. In Philadelphia the trendy areas are all over the place. Philadelphia herself is a trendy cultural spot in general. The total trendoid spots are close to or the immediate fringe of Center City. Examples: Queen Village, Old City, Northern Liberties, Graduate Hospital, Art Museum, Penns Port, Italian Market, Old Kensington, Brewerytown. There are more. Again, the question remains in your mortgageability, how much you want to spend every month, and what are the characteristics your neighborhood should have. ... more
