Congrats on your home search. I would be happy to discuss this property with you, if you are not already working with a Realtor.
Regarding the schools, I advise clients to utilize the info on trusted websites, such as the Philadelphia School website-below and linked on Trulia, as well as contact the local police department to get answers to your questions.
There are many school options in the area, public, private, and so on. For information on the public schools in Philadelphia, you can visit the website directly:

I am an experienced investor and property manager in Philadelphia.
All of your ideas mentioned may be good in the own right.
Each, however, has its pros and cons and needs to be discussed.
Depending on the amount of your planned investment of course, I would suggest a diversified approach.
There are some great multi-unit buildings and many viable investments in smaller single homes as well. I would be more than happy to discuss your goals and locate investments that would make you feel secure and can are manageable.
Above all, the investments that will produce due residual income for you.
Philadelphia is still a great investment market with plentiful inventory and relatively low maintenance costs. You are certainly on the right path.
Please feel free to contact me any time to discuss this further.

Hi EDD, much has changed in 35 years and these buildings are not necessarily what they once were. There are even other areas besides the Parkway that my clients love.

I feel this may be best handled in person. Just to remind you, you don't pay me a thing, the Seller pays all real estate commission in Pennsylvania.

I simply feel you could use a buyer's broker to walk you through this. I know most buildings in the city and am affiliated with

Down payments are based on the loan type you get. You need to discuss it with the loan officer or lender you use. FHA loans require 3.5%, other loans require 10 or 20% down.
