Amenities, location, and square footage […]

If you’ve ever watched House Hunters or any other of those (hella fake) HGTV home-buyer-reality shows, you know that natural light is one of the most-desired selling points in a home. After all, you can knock down walls to create an open floorplan or slather your ugly kitchen in stainless, granite, and subway tile… but you can’t – to the […]

Center City Steals: Three Under $300k

I love doing roundups of homes that don’t cost an arm and a leg. While it’s true that Center City homes can be pretty pricey, it’s simply not accurate to say that there aren’t deals to be had.

The Thursday Five: Gorgeous Center City Kitchens Under $600k

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and I’m a believer. From everyday family meals around the dinner table to holiday feasts, some of our best memories happen in the kitchen. Sounds sappy, but it’s completely true! There’s a reason that kitchen renos rank in the top five value-adds for those selling a home – we […]

Do You Wanna Buy a High Rise?

[That title was totally meant to be sung a la this earworm from Frozen, obviously. Special thanks to my nieces and nephews, who still haven’t had their fill of the damn movie after almost a year!] There’s a big ol’ building for sale in Center City right now, and it’s not even residential. 1515 Market St. is on the block, […]
