A couple in a town near Philadelphia recently made a $1.5 million offer for a one-bedroom, 2,600-square-foot house that’s in the shadow of the historic district’s iconic skyscrapers.
They were offered the house in exchange for buying a second, much larger house, but instead, they decided to give the former a chance at a fresh start.
For many people, that could mean moving into a home that has air conditioning, a roof over their head, or even a garage, as they might for a smaller apartment or house in the suburbs.
But it could also mean staying put in a city where a new home is often just as good.
“It’s a bit of a gamble,” said Jennifer Karp, a real estate agent in New York who has helped some people buy in Philadelphia.
“You want to do everything possible to be prepared for it.”
For a first-time buyer, the choice is often not a clear one.
The market can be tight in the Philadelphia area.
For one thing, there are limited homes available, and prices often go down the first year or two.
For another, the market is changing so quickly that it’s hard to keep up.
“There are so many new developments going on right now, and the prices are going up and up,” said David Leiter, an economist at PNC Bank.
“So it’s a very competitive market.”
The house is not the only new house on the market.
Some people are trying to buy houses in other parts of the country, like New York or Los Angeles, which offer similar conditions, but without the hassle of moving in.
And people are looking for a place that they can live for years without breaking the bank, which means they could get a big offer for something they may not have been able to afford before.
This is why there are a lot of people who are getting into this market right now.
“They’re trying to get into the market that they’re already in,” said Brian Leiber, an executive director at the real estate firm PNC Realty Advisors, which advises people on buying a home.
“This is the only way to do it.
There’s no other way.”
A few years ago, there were only about 20,000 people in Philadelphia who had a mortgage.
Now, it’s more than half that number, according to the realtor.
In some neighborhoods, people are starting to get homes in larger numbers.
And it’s also creating a demand for properties with higher prices.
A new development in the city called The Landing, in the neighborhood around the Philadelphia Museum of Art, has had an immediate surge in sales, with buyers willing to pay up to $1 million for a house in an area where rents average about $1,200 per month.
There are also more houses available for sale in the Northeast, with many properties listed on Craigslist.
The price of a home in the town of West Chester is now $3.9 million, up from $1M in January, according.
And many buyers are choosing to buy in more desirable neighborhoods where they can pay much less for the same house.
“People have always been looking for the cheapest house and that’s kind of what this is about,” said Leiber.
Some homeowners have been buying a house and then buying a bigger house and moving to a different neighborhood to try and save money on a bigger down payment.
But the number of people doing this is on the rise.
And some of them have even been doing it for decades.
One of the most common reasons people are turning to buying in Philadelphia is that there’s a shortage of houses.
The city is home to about 1 million people, but its population is about 1.8 million.
That means there are more than a million empty houses in Philadelphia, said Leiter.
But the people who need a home the most are the middle class.
They’re the ones who have been working for years and want to live in a place with more space, but don’t want to buy a bigger home, Leiter said.
When it comes to homes, the most important factor is the ability to afford it.
For people like Karp and her husband, they are making the move because they want to keep their family’s old house in Philadelphia where it belongs.
They’re not going to be moving out anytime soon, though, because their current home is already on the MLS market.
