Whether you’re a to- performing agent or a first-time renter, ‘Location, location, location‘ is the unofficial, clichéd mantra in real estate. We at Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty feel the greater Philadelphia region is an exceptional ‘location’ to transform a house into a home. The region boasts a mix of verdant countryside and exceptional urban landscape (check), internationally esteemed employers (check), and perhaps most importantly, nationally recognized public schools (check and mate),
If ‘location, location location‘ had a long-lost twin mantra, it may read ‘oh, please let this property be in the right school district.’ Lucky for those seeking a new home in our beautiful section of the globe, the greater Philadelphia has top-ranked schools. New Hope-Solebury High School is ranked #2 in overall quality in all of Pennsylvania (according to US News and World Report).
