Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. Today’s price point: $150,000.
Wynnefield (3 beds, 1.5 baths)—Just on the edge of West Fairmount Park is this charming, recently updated rowhome. The 1,232-square-foot home has front porch that looks over the property’s small front yard. Inside, the hardwood floors have been refinished and there are built-ins throughout. The kitchen’s renovation didn’t include a dishwasher, however. Asking price is $149,900.
Fishtown (0 beds, 0 baths)—This price point won’t buy you a house in this hot neighborhood, but it will buy you some land to build one! The neighbors next door to this 13-by-60-foot lot are selling it for $150,000.
Germantown (3 beds, 1 bath)—Here’s a home asking $149,900 in the recently crowned Curbed Cup Neighborhood of the Year. The 1,298-square-foot rowhome could use some cosmetic updating, but the bones and character are already there. There’s a tiled fireplace in the living room and a handsome staircase, and there’s plenty of extra storage in the finished basement.
Cedarbrook (3 beds, 1.5 baths)—At the very north tip of Philly, this move-in ready home is asking $149,900. The 1,185-square-foot house has a small front yard and big living and dining rooms. The galley-style kitchen is a bit tight, but perhaps the one-car garage and finished basement will make up for it.
Bridesburg (3 beds, 1 bath)—This home is asking exactly $150,000 for 1,296 square feet in this River Wards neighborhood. It’s been updated: There’s a brand new kitchen with subway tiles and granite countertops, plus refinished hardwood floors throughout. The upstairs bedrooms range from large and wide to small and narrow. The price point always buys a big backyard.
