Five Most Expensive Neighborhoods for 2BR Rentals

Kwelia has done it again. After unleashing Philly’s most expensive places to rent in May, the real estate data startup now has a rental-market heatmap that breaks down prices by type of unit. Looking for a one-bedroom? Move the cursor and see which neighborhood will give you the best deal. The number of bathrooms is variable as well.

This particular map will be updated every day as new listings come online. But for right now, today, the most expensive neighborhoods for two-bedroom, one-bath rentals are…

1. Logan Square: $1,765 per month
2. Northern Liberties: $1,700 per month
3. University City: $1,695
4. Callowhill: $1,684
5. Rittenhouse: $1,650

If those results surprise you, remember to take apartment buildings into account. For instance, Goldtex is probably the sole driver for the No. 4 ranking. And Rittenhouse’s increasing number of rentals means there’s more price variation.

But who knows? Tomorrow is another day.

    I think those are the numbers for 1-bedrooms. Kwelia could improve their user interface… (Its not enough to just drag the slider…)

  • EaglePete

    Starting to sound like a lawsuit waiting to happen

  • PaoliBulldog

    Couldn’t be PUP list. IR (my preference) or waived/injury settlement. Let him recuperate and try again next year.

  • Stuart Philp

    We need some injury luck to swing our way… 5 knees blown out in a matter of weeks, on top of the numerous minor injuries.

  • cliff henny

    did hunt have a pre-existing injury? 10 yrs ago, maclin, benn and phillips would never of been in position to get re-injured, they’d been in street clothes. think these ACL repairs have evolved dramatically recently, but guys working off 4 or 5 yr old restructures still at high risk for re-injury.

    There have been a number of studies arguing both ways on the grass vs. turf debate. I’m sure Chip, with his focus on science, will work with Jeff Lurie and his sports science personnel to determine the best option in future seasons.

    Keep in mind there have been numerous ACL tears around the league, leading some to question if it is actually a result of the increased downtime away from football under the new CBA:

  • Mr. Wu

    is there like some kind mineral deficiency going around these days….I don’t remember ACL’s being such a frequent issue 20 years ago

  • Rob S.

    It was either him or Freddie McSalmon

  • Johnny Domino

    I had a McClam and fries during Lent last year.

  • greenblood20

    Love the name McClam…sounds like a cartoon character
