Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons! You've been casually house hunting for a while online and now you've finally set your budget. After careful calculations, you've determined that $500,000 is your ideal budget, no more, no less. Let's peruse what a half a mil gets you 'round these parts.


728 Rodman Street [Redfin]
Here's a cozy spot in Washington Square West/South Street area. Listed at $500,000 on the dot, this house comes with a private car port, a deck and a fire place. It does look like it could use a little updating, but the location is top notch. Vitals: 3 bed, 2 bath, 1,488 square feet, $500,000


901 N Penn Street Unit R2303, Waterfront Square [Redfin]
Lookin' to stretch that 500 grand into a waterfront view? This unit has sweeping south facing views of the Delaware River and Ben Franklin Bridge, which would make for killer sight lines for the many firework displays. Waterfront Square also has valet parking, a large grassy roof deck and a covered pool area. Vitals: 2 bed, 2.5 bath, 1,565 square feet, $500,000


1101 Locust Street Unit 3C, Western Union Building [Redfin]
Talk about location! This one is perfect for anyone involved with Thomas Jefferson University. Located in the heart of Washington Square West, it sits above Garces Trading Company and is steps away from bars, restaurants, theaters and Washington Square. Tall ceilings and hardwood floors are the highlights. Vitals: 1 bed, 1 bath, 1,084 square feet, $500,000


429 Poplar Street [Redfin]
We know you had a hard budget of $500,000, but this one is definitely worth your consideration. It's a whole house on a corner lot in Northern Liberties. It's large, interesting, offers great features and has chopped $60,000 off of the list price since May. So, who knows, maybe this one could in the budget after all. Vitals: 3 bed, 2 bath, 2,240 square feet, $507,500
