Appreciation (and we don’t mean the cheese steaks)… A city on the upswing and property values on the rise. It’s close to New York City and Washington D.C: colleges, hospitals, employers, culture, art – Philadelphia has it all PLUS some incredible deals on turnkey properties. Interested? You should be.
