This unique exhibit includes over forty artists, five bands, and two live painters. Among these are artists are Eric Kennedy, Louise O'Rourke, Daria Souvorova, Marie Elcin, Joanna Mroczek, Marie Tosto, Eric Remer, J'Nell Jordan and Greg Slade (Washington, DC), among many others.  The night will come alive with a live soundtrack from musical acts Walter Foley and Friends, Sunset Recorder, The Dirty Soap Blues Band, Truant Minds, and Sweet Briar Rose.

Is Port Richmond the Next Hot ‘Hood?

The Inquirer makes a case for Port Richmond in this spotlight on one of our favorite neighborhoods.  But it's not just the awesome pierogi and Polish specialties that makes Port Richmond hot. The article points out something that we have indeed been noticing, that Port Richmond is getting younger, with its affordable pricing drawing in buyers, mainly in their late 20s and early 30s. Our own Chris Somers of the Somers Team was quoted in the article:

"The sections of [zip code] 19125 that are not really Fishtown still get more attention, such as East Kensington west of Frankford Avenue and north of York Street [Old Richmond]," Somers said. "[Yet] Port Richmond as well as Bridesburg attract the younger buyer, too, and the price points are quite affordable."

If you're looking for a great deal outside of Center City, all signs are pointing towards Port Richmond.

Curious about Port Richmond? Here are two amazing properties worth checking out. Both homes are priced under $190,000.

3226 Mercer Street

2817 Belgrade Street (shown above)

Could Cobbs Creek Be the Next Investor Hub?

Our team agent Sean Dundon and I were discussing the magnitude of rental leads for a property he had listed for rent and for sale in the Cobbs Creek Neighborhood. Homes are selling for under $60,000 and renting for up to $850/mo (click photos below to enlarge). Folks, to me, that's a winning investment scenario.
