More from the listing:

Just steps off of the thriving East Passyunk Avenue, on a tree lined side street you can find this well maintained home.




Upon entering you’ll immediately notice the difference in living space that a 15′ wide home offers in the 24′ deep living room/dining room area, next up is the huge 15’x14′ kitchen that has been updated with all new appliances and countertop.

The floors and the colored cabinets have plenty of charm.


Lastly on the first floor you’ll find a rear yard that has been decked but offers either flat space or a potential garden area, all recently updated with protective outdoor paint.



When you venture upstairs you’ll find 3 bedrooms (15’x13, 12’x10, 10’x10′) as well as a bathroom that was rehabbed & updated in 2008.




Newer windows & ceiling fans throughout. The basement is the entire footprint of the house and has been outfitted with shelving systems in many areas. If buyer is working with realtor, seller will pay a 2% fee.


If you’re interested in checking this home out, there are two open houses happening this weekend, on Saturday, August 29 and Sunday, August 30 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
You can inquire about the home at, or 215-593-6974.

    Piece of advice for this FSBO owner. If you are asking above market value, you might want to offer a standard commission to buyer’s agents to motivate them to show it.

    What are the yearly property taxes? Also are there any association fees?

    It’s a nice enough house, but the price seems crazy for so much pergo, no closets, and a dated kitchen. That corner of Passyunk isn’t nice enough for the price.

      This. Houses around here only fetch that price if they’re pristine and require no work. That kitchen is hideous and needs a complete overhaul. Somebody needs to work with a realtor to help them get their head out of the clouds.
