10 homes for sale in Philly under $200K

View as Map

Philly's real estate transitioned from a buyer's to seller's market earlier this year, when home prices hit an all-time high since the housing bust.

Here, listed from least to most expensive, are 10 homes for sale just under $200,000, and not a penny over.
