High Demand Philadelphia Neighborhoods


These are neighborhoods we have been experiencing a high demand for lately and have seen places flying off the market this spring.

Top 5 Philadelphia neighborhoods this season (in no order):

1. Point Breeze

This neighborhood is located in South Philadelphia. Its borders are Washington Ave. to the north, Broad Street to the east, 25th Street to the West and Mifflin Street to the south. Nearby neighborhoods include Newbold, Center City, Passyunk Square, and Grays Ferry. Point Breeze is home to several of the Mural Arts Programs murals including “We Are The Youth” located at 22nd and Ellsworth in Point Breeze.

2. Pennsport

This neighborhood is also located in South Philadelphia. Traditionally it has been home to a large Irish population and many of the Philadelphia Mummer’s clubs. It is located between Passyunk Square, the Delaware River, Queen Village and Whitman.

3. East Falls

This neighborhood is located in the Northwest section of the city. Surrounding neighborhoods include Roxborough, Manayunk, Germantown, and Fairmount Park. Many are buying in this section for the convenience of living close to Kelly Drive and major commuting highways. It is also a short train ride, bus ride or drive into center city.

4. Fishtown

This neighborhood is located northeast of Center City Philadelphia. Fishtown has been growing in popularity over the last decade and with the rise in demand in Northern Liberties, this neighborhood also has seen more demand. Many new restaurants and bars have added to its popularity.

5. Roxborough

This neighborhood is located in the northwest section and has seen a lot of real estate sales of late. It offers close proximity to Manayunk, East Falls, the Wisahickon Creek, Fairmount Park and Kelly Drive. This neighborhood is also easily accessible to major routes for commuters. Many would also argue that Roxborough has the best cheese steaks in the city at Dalesandro’s.
