About Philadelphia, PA


The City of Brotherly Love, where urban living meets affordability

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania needs no introduction as the fifth largest city in the country. Many of the decisions that led to the founding of the United States were made in Philly, which was once the nation's capital. It is one of the oldest cities in the country and is visited by millions of people every year. It is also a major hub of American commerce, located between New York City and Washington, D.C.

Philly has a number of world famous landmarks as well as countless museums, art galleries, professional sports teams, shopping and more, truly making it a world-wide destination. The city is broken up into 12 areas, often divided by rivers and other landmarks. Even within the 12 areas, Philly is further split into over 100 different neighborhoods with their own styles and unique feel to match what you may be looking for in a home. Befitting its size and importance, Philadelphia has extensive public transportation in and around the city as well as transportation to other major cities such as Washington, D.C. and New York City. Philadelphia is also rated as one of the most walkable major cities in the United States.

Homes in Philadelphia are as diverse as their neighborhoods. Multi-million dollar houses can be found in the more affluent outskirts, as well as in the Center City communities, like Society Hill and Rittenhouse Square. Single-family detached and row homes can be found along with townhouses, condominiums, and apartments throughout the city. From the historic to modern, Philadelphia real estate offers something to suit everyone.
