If you're looking for homes in Philadelphia, now is a great time to scope out the market. The city's economy has seen steady improvement over the last couple of years—especially in the education and healthcare sectors, which have grown the most and are currently driving the local economy.
The recent revitalization of a number of previously underdeveloped neighborhoods is another exciting reason to move. Graduate Hospital has been completely turned around and the rents have skyrocketed. Northern Liberties is another neighborhood that's made quite the transformation. It's now one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Philly in which to live and play.
But if it's a home in Philadelphia you're looking to buy, some of the most exciting neighborhoods lay on the outskirts of the city. Cherry Hill and Cinnaminson, NJ, and Wyndmoor, PA, are just a few great options. If you're looking for a hotspot with lots of shopping and dining, Cherry Hill's town center, Garden State Park, is a quaint, pedestrian-friendly favorite for the locals. And Cinnaminson has all the charm of a small town, with the convenience of Northern Philadelphia just across the Delaware. Not to mention, there's a wonderful year-round farmers' market you must check out if you're in the area.
Philadelphia already has so much to offer, but with the increase in prosperity, now is the most promising time to make a move into this expanding market. For more information about homes in the Delaware Valley, check out the Ryan Homes site.
