So here’s the scoop – The developer took a run down apartment building, added Granite and Stainless, and refinished the cabs of the elevators, and said “See…New Philly Condos“!
Well…. what about the heating, electric, plumbing, roof, exterior brick, heating systems, central air, exhaust stacks, risers, fire alarms and suppression systems,not to mention the exterior pointing, caulking, window frames, elevator structure and mechanical, and the cockroach problem?
Not all rehabs are created equal. Some really suck. Are you going to be the dope who gets fooled by a pretty face? I hope not. Some condo buildings have an inferior set of systems- be it mechanical, financial, or just unchecked age.
Look before you leap. Ask me questions about any Philadelphia Condo. Ask me if I would live in that building you have your eye on. I promise to not hold back.
