What’s For Sale In: Graduate Hospital
Graduate Hospital might be a confusing name for a neighborhood, especially since the institution it’s named for has been closed for years. But that hasn’t kept the area from being one of the hottest places to buy or sell in Philly.
Graduate Hospital, also known as Southwest Center City, was one of the first areas in Philadelphia to see a major uptick in construction, and following that, a major uptick in housing prices. Regularly named one of the hottest neighborhoods in town by Philadelphia Magazine and others, the average listing price in the area is currently more than half a million dollars. If you’ve got the budget, take a look at a few current offerings in Graduate Hospital.
