Your Philadelphia condo search

Filed under: Center City Real Estate,General Real Estate,Of Interest to Buyers,Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 11:21 am

Let’s start by defining your needs. Do you have any pets? That is a great question to start with! Many condo buildings here in Center City Philadelphia have differing pet policies. Some allow dogs, buy have weight limits. Some have limits on the type/breed of dog they allow. Though I have never heard of a weight limit on cats, I am pretty sure most buildings would not allow you to bring a Tiger or a Lion with you :).

Also- when you say you MUST HAVE parking- will on-site rental parking suffice? This little loop hole will certainly increase the number of available condos. May buyers get stuck (not making a judgment call here) on requiring a deeded or assigned parking spot with their unit, when they may not be familiar with the options they have for on-site, or even rental parking within say 50 feet of their front door. Knowing your options can really open up many possibilities in the Philadelphia condo market.

Finally, when buyers say they must have a three bedroom condo, I often ask if a two bedroom and den styled unit will be ample space. There are very few true three bedroom condos available here in town, and those that are available seem to really command a staggering sale price.

So let’s start by defining your true needs. You might find there are options and alternatives to what you believe you truly need and what you might find acceptable! I’m here to help buyers define their needs when searching for their next condo here in downtown Philadelphia! Give me a call at 215.521.1523 or drop me and email at!
