philadelphia real estate: Could Cobbs Creek Be the Next Investor Hub? - 06/15/13 12:10 AM

Our team agent Sean Dundon and I were discussing the magnitude of rental leads for a property he had listed for rent and for sale in the Cobbs Creek Neighborhood. Homes are selling for under $60,000 and renting for up to $850/mo (click photos below to enlarge). Folks, to me, that's a winning investment scenario. If you would like more information about buying to invest and finding a winning investment plan, please contact us at The Somers Team. Our team is eager, aggressive and extremely knowledgeable about the Philadelphia Real Estate Market.

In a recent Philly.com article, it says the new tax property rate under AVI is tentatively projected to be 1.3% without a homestead exemption, or 1.4% with a $30,000 exemption.
