Most places like this have an access gate. And yeah no idea about the yard. It's also a milli. I'll swing by there today on the way home if I remember.
oic, they left the park and took down the large warehouse.

Impressive.

Was that old yellow fence the crazy broken glass mural artist of philly??

Yeah they kept the little park across the street, this is a 4-pack of homes where that warehouse was, it looks like. Parking in the rear/center of them.

That looks like just a little yellow painted cinderblock fence to me.

Zagar's works are flashy and wild. They're all over south philly.

You can wander around and stumble across them all over the place down here. They are very interesting. I don't know if I'd want one on my house though.

Full retard home prices here means half a milli will get you air conditioning and a nice-ish house, but no longer gets you a garage. Or it does, just in the hood where you're gonna get shot and puppy will step on a hypodermic needle while out for a walk. Price of entry for a garage is now around 700-750 in a neighborhood that doesn't totally suck.

It's by scrooge choice because I can't really afford much of a step up from where we currently are.
wait for the dip, its coming
I hope you're right. It's looking like everything is working out for our house sale. She bought it at $120k in 2014, selling for $177k. IMO, it's not worth that, but pretty solid little profit.

But why not? They don't need a "home office," its temporary, and renting "room for guests" is for chumps.

I'm like :bruh: :gtfo: I don't want to work on that shit. Buying one of the nicest and most expensive places in a town that's had maybe 1% annual appreciation over the past 20 years is fucking :fullretard:

I just ran the numbers for a 5 year scenario. With current prices/rates and assuming 2% appreciation on nearly everything (unlikely on the house itself, but trying to tip the scales slightly in favor of owning), it would cost $72506 more to buy that house than rent the apartment in town. We could rent and go to Paris every year and still be better off than buying that fucking house - and that's valuing all of my own labor maintaining/repairing the thing at zero.
