What's Available Wednesday? A Philadelphia Duplex!That’s right, Hipsters! We are traveling back to Philly today – with an amazing turnkey duplex with an amazing buy-in price. Be prepared for sticker shock (in a good way).

Because let’s get real. We’ve gained about 100 pounds just because we love investing in Philadelphia and those darn cheese steaks so much. Yikes! But how can you beat market rents increasing 10% in the last 4 years? Or how the market-wide vacancy rate remains under 5% (which means there’s a high demand for rental properties)?

So how about it? Ready to check out this duplex that puts $893 in your pocket every month? Better jump on it fast before it’s snapped up by someone else!
