9 Houses You Should Buy in Philadelphia

Posted on Apr 13, 2016


A tour of some of Philadelphia’s best listings.

Today’s post is for all those out there needing some inspiration on your next home. It’s for my kindred spirits who sit around on Zillow checking out all the homes on the market. Not because you are looking to move, but just because you genuinely enjoy perusing the market, keeping up with real estate trends, and seeing what’s available in your neighborhood.

Let’s get started.
