There are a lot of students and/or parents of students who keep the Center City condo market healthy — or at least breathing — when all else fails. Jefferson Medical College does brisk business for landlords and sellers in the Wash West/Midtown Village/Gayborhood/etc. etc. part of town. (Side note: Jeff has “more living graduates than any other medical school in the nation,” according to their website.) Often, a parent or two wind up buying a condo for a student, figuring it’ll give the kid a place to live for those few years of hell, and be a good investment as well. Here’s a Property Pick for Pecunious (or Impecunious) Parents: an especially spacious (1,100 square feet) 1BR/1BA condo at 10th and Spruce for $252,500 (plus $342 condo fees).
