Philadelphia, PA Real Estate

 

Homebuyers looking for a city that offers the full package should take note of Philadelphia, PA, or “The City of Brotherly Love”. Philadelphia is currently the 5th largest city in the U.S. by population and growing. The city’s population dipped over the past decade but has rebounded nicely since 2010, which bodes well for the Philadelphia real estate market and indicates the national appeal of the area.

The number of Philadelphia homes for sale has benefitted from the city’s central location. Philly rests within driving distance of Washington D.C., New York City, and Atlantic City, giving potential homeowners access to a wealth of career and tourism opportunities. Many new residents of Philadelphia are drawn to the city’s diverse and relatively temperate weather, as well. Summers are hot and muggy, while fall and spring are mild. Winter is cold with varying amounts of snowfall.

Perhaps the strongest reason to search for Philadelphia houses for sale comes from the city’s unique culture. Few cities in the United States can rival Philadelphia’s rich history, with the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the National Constitution Center all serving as key landmarks in Philadelphia’s historical tourism industry. Philadelphia also boasts an active museum community, hosting destinations like the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Barnes Foundation.

But while so much of Philadelphia is centered around telling the story of our forefathers and other great leaders of the past, the city’s residents are adamant about forging their own identity as well. Homebuyers interested in Philadelphia real estate should be ready to cheer on the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field or watch the Phillies play at Citizens Bank Park. They should be ready to embrace the Philly cheese steak and scarf down a soft pretzel every now and then. These institutions are sacred to Philadelphia, and a part of the city’s innate charm.

As home to a multitude of education and research centers, it’s no surprise that homebuyers across the country are seeking out Philadelphia homes for sale and are eager to root their families in such a wholesome environment. The city offers great schools for students of all ages, including some of the nation’s finest universities: The Art Institute of Philadelphia, Temple University, and the University of Pennsylvania.

Philadelphia offers all the convenience of big-city living with the charm and culture of a much smaller town. The city is trending upwards, with people all over the country bidding on Philadelphia real estate. To keep you from missing the boat, Prudential Fox & Roach offers real estate listings by city to help you find the home you’re looking for in a city you’ll love.
