Why We Love New Construction in Philadelphia

6055751

The new construction at Norris Point in Fishtown, the upcoming Leithgow VI in Northern Liberties, 1234 Mascher Street in  Old Kensington and 711 Belgrade Street, also in Fishtown. What do all of these projects have in common? The developers and renovation teams that came together to create these homes were of the finest in Philadelphia.

As listing agents for these incredibly successful projects in Fishtown and Old Kensington, we are always observing, comparing and sizing up the quality of the homes and renovations as they compare to other areas in Philadelphia.  We are inspired by the industry's developers as well as the renovation specialists that provide a superior product for the home buyers in Philly.  From our perspective, great homes, impeccable new construction, and superior renovations are available right now in the Fishtown, Northern Liberties and the Old Kensington neighborhoods. A premium high quality home is not a given to home buyers in Philadelphia. Not every new construction or renovation is created equally. That is why we want to take this moment to identify those developers who we recognize are raising the bar in Philadelphia's housing market.

The developers for Norris Point are noteworthy.  Behind this wildly successful project in Fishtown at Trenton and Norris just a block from Rocket Cat Cafe and the Soup Kitchen is a new construction development that you should pay attention to. Known for their earlier projects at the Memphis Flats and the Nines,  these local developers are creating a high quality home that will sustain value in years to come.  Recent home renovations including the contractors involved with the renovation of 1234 N Mascher Street, 711 Belgrade Street, and 865 E Thompson Street are other examples of recent renovations done by local pros with impeccable taste and attention to detail throughout every aspect of the renovation process.

At the end of the day, it is the quality of the products we represent for sale coupled with the quality of our marketing that help us introduce and match these homes to happy, excited buyers and renters who are looking for a beautiful home that they can enjoy without a thought lost to repairs and improvements.  We're often on the scene marketing the property throughout its construction, highlighting the details and the neighborhood for curious buyers.

We represent the best listings out there and when consulting with us, you can expect proven successful results. If you are a developer producing a great product, why not list with the Somers Team? Get in touch with us today!
