investing in philadelphia house for saleWe don’t want to tell you how much weight we’ve gained ever since we fell in love with those iconic philly cheese steaks – and the whole city itself. Why? Well, as if you didn’t already know from this blog, simply put: Philadelphia is an absolute dream for an investor looking for low-key, hassle-free monthly cash flow and a steady stream of tenants alongside ace property managers.

It’s also on the rise – but it’s not at the top yet. So – regardless of your tactic – buy and hold or buy, hold for a while and then sell – you’re in good shape when you invest in the city of brotherly love.
