Currently, I have a client who is looking to sell their home in Manayunk (19128) and then move closer to Center City Philadelphia for work. The commute, even though its not too far and they can use public transportation if desired, was taking up too much time in my client’s day, making their already long days even longer. I’m sure many of you can relate to this story, especially if you travel on the Schuylkill (76) or Blue Route (476) during rush hour. Their condo is located in Manayunk, it is extremely nice with all the top notch upgrades you might desire. High ceilings, great natural light, and all within walking distance to Main street in Manayunk. If you know anyone looking to move to Manayunk, this is a great home in a great location. My client is then looking to purchase a condo or townhouse in Old City (19123) or Avenue of the Arts (19147) to be closer to work.
What are the main reasons you want to move or factors that you consider when looking to purchase a new home? Is commuting time number one on your list too?
