Not all 1500 Sq Ft Condos are Created Equally

…in value, scale, or layout!

There is one thing I know for sure…and that is that all condos are not cut from the same cloth. When we look at a variety of condos in Center City, buyers should be aware that some units excel in closet space, some units have a lot of wasted space, and some condos are just perfect in their proportions. Every buyer has their own set of “likes and dislikes”.

Sometimes a disjointed living/dining room situation is perfect for one set of buyers, but not for another. At times, a specific condo may have a large kitchen, eat-in-kitchen, or almost no kitchen at all. Center City offers such a wide variety of condominium styles and layouts that buyers are often puzzled when comparing a variety of units to one another. 
 
The comment I hear most is, “The other 1500 sq ft condo we just saw seemed so much larger”. Of course….know that the scale of the Philly condo in question also adds to the perception that one unit may be larger than the other, when in fact, it is not. Ceiling height, views, and the amount of natural light always play heavily into that equation.
 
I have seen some really AWFUL 1500 sq ft Philadelphia lofts and condos, and some that are just perfect. But then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, opinions do differ from buyer to buyer.

  1. HI

    Great information about the property and sometimes a disjointed living/dining room situation is perfect for one set of buyers, but not for another. At times, a specific condo may have a large kitchen, eat-in-kitchen, or almost no kitchen at all.
