Hi John,

Seek, and you shall find : ) In Roxborough and Manayunk there are several properties in the $170,000 price range. I am not sure if they are what you will like but there are home out there at that price point.

Step 1 is get in touch with a mortgage person or bank and get preapproved.
Step 2 find a Realtor who knows the area.

Chris and I are better versed in the Philly Central area (and even in the N.E, including Mayfair) but we have an agent on our team and 3 in our office the specialize in Manayunk. If you need a hand please reach out to us.

As a point of information. most lenders will not loan you money for a home that is not inhabitable. It must be livable, with a kitchen in place, plumbing, electricity etc.

Generally, individualy that come by partially completed homes are paying cash for the opportunity of doing the necessary renovations.

Our recommendation is to be in touch with a local real estate professional. They will have access to the information you are seeking and be able to support your interests.

Good luck

Julie, You should be able to research your local tax records on line and pull up your property and any adjoining properties. This should give the name of who owns the vacant lot. You can then contact them to see if they are interested in selling the lot.

If you would like to get connected with a Realtor give me a call. 336-601-0335 I can find you a realtor in your area that will assist you in collecting that info and approaching the land owner.

Julie asked:
This parking is off-street and is behind the houses from Davis St. It looks to be private parking, but I am trying to find out if they are rentable.

Jim Johnson answered:
Are you an investor? If not, you should not think about the purchase of a home as an investment. It's great that a home often is an investment, but that should not be your primary consideration. An agent could not answer your question at any rate. An agent could however provide a trend analysis to show whether properties have been appreciating, giving you the basis for your own decision about the value of property as an investment.

You should make a buyer's agency agreement with a local REALTOR member of the MLS.
