How to Find the Perfect House in Philadelphia

Whether you’re in the market for an urban loft or a sprawling farmhouse, we’ve got the places where you’ll find them, the prices you’ll pay, and the perks (and drawbacks) you’ll want to keep in mind. Happy hunting!


THE LURE: High ceilings, original fixtures, fireplaces, ample square footage.

KEEP IN MIND: “You’ll be doing a lot of repair,” says realtor Dominic Fuscia, in Coldwell Banker Preferred’s Old City office. “Many don’t have central air, and if you’re going to add modern features, there’s a cost to that.”

WHERE TO LOOK: Society Hill, Rittenhouse, Art Museum/Fairmount.

EXPECT TO PAY: In Fairmount, $450,000 to $800,000; in Rittenhouse, $800,000 up to $3 million.

On the market: A 2BR, 2BA condo unit in a Center City brownstone, $875,000. Contact: Michael McCann, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach, 215-440-8345.
