As a realtor in downtown Philadelphia, each spring I get a lot of visits to my website, www.CenterCityCondos.com by students and faculty looking for condos and lofts that have easy access to either Penn or Drexel Universities. It is quite common for those looking to move into the area for an extended period of time to buy a condo, as opposed to rent a place to live, and there are many options for such buyers.
Many of the University of Penn area condos are located either in the University City area (west of the Schuylkill River), or in the Fitler Square/Rittenhouse Square areas of Center City Philadelphia. For many of these buyers, location and security rank highest amongst the attributes of any given condo, and are deemed most valuable in such a living situation. There are many high rise condos which offer doorman services, and many of these buildings also offer on-site parking. Close proximity to 30th Street Station (rail service) and being in the center of town (which means you may NOT need a car) are also of importance to buyers looking to be close to Univ. of Penn.
Those coming into the Philadelphia condo market have three choices of living arrangements:
Each type/style of condo has it’s plusses and minuses, and each offer a unique way of life here in Center City Philadelphia.
