Why Did This Queen Village 3BR Sell in 2 Days?

There’s a formula to a quick single-family house sale.


Sometimes a home just zooms through the market, and this is one of them. What made it go so fast? There are several key elements that make a big difference in Philadelphia home sales. Here’s where this one hits all the right marks:

1. The Philly Blend: evidence of historic pedigree but modernized for contemporary living
2. Curb Appeal: pretty exterior on a lovely tree-lined street
3. Universally Adored Details: exposed brick, hardwood floors, glass-tile/subway tile, granite countertops, crown molding, stainless steel appliances, frameless glass shower
4. Gesture Toward Sustainability: custom solar shades
5. Not Terrible Public School Nearby: Meredith Catchment
6. Outdoor Spaces: “urban zen rear patio,” “all-but-built roof deck”
7. High WalkScore: 98
