Hottest Neighborhoods in Philadelphia

Hottest Neighborhoods

Philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods! Here are a few of the hottest neighborhoods for real estate:

1. Dickinson Narrows, a small community located in South Philadelphia, ranked #2 in the nation in Redfin’s Hottest Neighborhoods of 2015! It’s affordable, walkable to great bars and restaurants, and near a ton of parks and playgrounds.

2. Northern Liberties. We bet you saw this one coming! Northern Liberties has become a hotspot for Millennial buyers with uniquely converted warehouses and luxury condos.

3. Kensington is being lauded by Philadelphia locals as the most up-and-coming neighborhood in the city. Kensington Renewal is just one non-profit targeting the once-troubled community by rehabbing abandoned homes and turning them into safe, beautiful owner-occupied homes. Other initiatives include a community garden and library. Located near vibrant Fishtown, Kensington remains affordable but home prices continue to rise.

4. Homes have been selling fast in another South Philly favorite neighborhood, Newbold! Mark Gatta of EveryHome’s Gatta Group explains that the community just north of Passyunk Ave and just West of Broad St has been notable for its increased walkability, renovated homes, and community initiatives.
