Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. We’ve found five homes and condos for sale around $350,000.
Fishtown (2 beds, 1 bath)—At 880 square feet, this rowhome at 1212 Day Street is the smallest home for sale on this list. But the location can’t be beat: It’s just steps from popular Fishtown spots up and down Girard Avenue, including Frankford Hall and Johnny Brenda’s. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom; a half-bath is on the first floor. Asking price is exactly $350,000.
Mt. Airy (5 beds, 3 baths)—To really stretch this price point, look no further than this East Mt. Airy twin on 217 E. Durham. At 2,762 square feet, this home is the largest on this week’s list and sits just a short walk away from the Sedgwick train station. Beyond the stone-clad porch, the home’s interiors have been updated throughout, and the master suite takes up the entire third floor. Out back, there’s a nice little fenced-in back patio. Asking price is $345,000.
Old City (1 bed, 1.5 bath)—This bi-level condo at 100 Arch Street, just on the edge of 1-95 is on the market for just a hair under $350,000. At 1,314 square feet, it’s one of the smallest properties for sale at this price point, but what it lacks in square footage it makes up in big views of the Delaware River from the roof deck. There’s a lot of character within, including exposed brick walls and ductwork. In addition to the $349,000 asking price, condo fees come out to $96 a month.
Hawthorne (2 beds, 2 baths)—We’ve actually written about this Hawthorne condo this summer, but it’s still on the market. 1100 Arch can be appreciated on a lot of levels—literally. The bi-level condo features a floating staircase, as well as a sort of sunken living room accessed via a set of concrete stairs. Though it’s on the first floor of the industrial building, it’s lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, which allows for plenty of natural light. Along with the $349,000 asking price, HOA fees come out to $749 a month, which includes access to a fitness center, community kitchen room, a 24-hour concierge, and extra storage.
Queen Village (2 beds, 1 bath)—In Queen Village, this end brick rowhome on 908 S. Bodine Street is on the market for just under this week’s price point, asking $349,900. Within the 943-square-foot home, there are two sunny bedrooms, including one with a terrace that overlooks the quaint back patio. The first floor makes the most of its space, fitting in a living room, a dining area, and an eat-in kitchen.
