…then you need to get with the program.


I recall my parents looking for a new home when I was in grade school. The event was heralded around the dinner table in much the same way as the other big news of the day- “Man Walks on Moon”. We couldn’t wait for the Sunday paper to arrive, so dad could get out his red magic-marker and circle the homes that sounded like a good fit for our growing family.

3bd/2ba with gdn and pkg, Lg LR…. $49,900 – yeah, circle that one.

Todays buyers are much more savvy, and they tend to plan ahead. They use the internet to learn about available Philly condos, and know a lot about certain projects prior to their arrival. Schools, police districts, and highlights of various neighborhoods can all be found on-line. Also, learning the difference between a low rise (loft or brownstone) styled condo, and a high rise condominium can be very helpful as we get starting condo shopping.
AN EDUCATED CONSUMER IS A GOOD CONSUMER. So learn as much as you can prior to meeting up with me. Get to know your areas, buildings, and what you value and don’t value in a Philadelphia condo. Use the internet as a screening and learning process, and hopefully, with our combined knowledge, we can find you the perfect condo in Philly!
