Happy New Year! Among all that talk about "New Year/New You" let's talk about what steps we can take to invest in ourselves and our future. As a realtor the obvious advice I can offer is to consider the VAST world of buying and investing in real estate. We will never run out of people who need housing, and once you outgrow your first home you can lovingly rent it out to folks to keep it in your portfolio. If you are interested in seeing any of these properties or want to hear more about the process please don't hesitate to reach out.
Here are some great starter homes under $300K that are new to the market this week in no particular order:
This well kept 1188 sqft Lower Moyamensing home is one of my favorites. Great front facade with amazing brickwork, hardwood floors, a finished basement and awesome back yard. The house kept a lot of the old architectural details and is within 6 blocks of the subway and right around the corner from one of the best restaurants in town Los Gallos.
CORNER PROPERTY! Lots of windows in this extremely long Fishtown home, in need of an update but livable. Boasting 1335sqft, with tons of potential in a great neighborhood right off Girard Ave. Very unique set up on the inside, and tons of light. This house is very well priced and will appreciate like crazy with some sweat equity.
This house was recently redone, but for the price I think it would be wise to tear out the carpets, put in hardwood and redo that kitchen and bathroom. Otherwise great house, in an awesome West Philly neighborhood, near Malcolm X Park and Baltimore Ave. House has 980 square feet, perfect for a couple to get started on their first home.
Amazing updated Roxborough home of 1600sqft with open floor plan, hardwood floors, new beautiful kitchen rounded out with a back patio with a deck. This property is totally move in ready and in a great area just east of Manayunk with excellent curb appeal. I love the hardwood floors and layout of the first floor. Right by the Schuylkill River path, excellent for jogging, walking or biking.
Point Breeze home, with 1416sqft, at 16' wide feels big and open. It is a new rehab with hardwood throughout, long floorplan, living room, dining room leading to kitchen on the back with a great yard and nice new facade with 1416sqft. Great neighborhood on the up and up, near Snyder Ave and transit.
