Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. This week, instead of rentals we’re taking a look at homes for sale for $250,000. Is one person's loft another person’s townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $250,000.
↑ Queen Village (1 bed, 1 bath)—This little two-story gem in Queen Village is probably best-suited for someone looking for a starter home. Despite its small stature, the home does have charm and a working fireplace, plus makes use of every nook and cranny. Its price tag is just under $250K at $249,900.
↑ Whitman (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—This South Philly neighborhood often offers some good deals, like this recently remodeled home on Tree Street with gray-toned finishes. The upstairs is completely carpeted, and there’s a finished basement and back patio for extra space.
↑ Olde Richmond (3 beds, 1.5 baths)—This single-family, detached home clocks in at 1,050 square feet, making it the largest property for sale on this list. Like of most of these homes, this one has been recently renovated, and is close to all of the neighboring Fishtown haunts.
↑ Lower Moyamensing (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—Not far from the Whitman property is another recently renovated home up for grabs for $249,900 in Lower Moyamensing. The exposed brick complements the new, modern finishes, and there’s a finished basement down below that could be a third bedroom or family room.
↑ Callowhill (2 beds, 2 baths)—This 956-square-foot condo is located right on booming North Broad Street. It’s a corner unit on the ninth floor of the building, so expect lots of natural light and neighborhood views. In addition to the very specific $247,835 price tag, HOA fees are $544 a month.
