Hi All! This is my first post on this site and I'm simply thrilled to have found this community What an incredible resource!
After living nearly 2 decades in the suburbs (*yawn*), I'm looking to make a move into the City. Looking to buy a double wide carriage house, firehouse, small industrial building (e.g., former bakery), or similar space with a pre-existing curb cut. The structure could be anything from completely finished to needing TLC to an unrestored shell. Eager to find what's available beyond the MLS. I am NOT a builder or developer. This would be my primary home and solely for personal use.
Perhaps you have a property that's not being used that you'd like to sell? Maybe you have a friend or relative looking to diversify beyond the real estate market? Maybe you keep walking by the same building each day, admiring its grace but saddened by its declining health, and suddenly see or hear that it's for sale? I'm looking to find something I can call home, fall in love with it and bring it back to life with my own two hands. Can gladly work with a FSBO but more than willing to respect a broker/agent role as long as they have an active listing that meets the aforementioned criteria. Cool with any type of zoning up to R10A or even C2. I'm a cash buyer who can promise a smooth, quick and highly enjoyable transaction.
Focusing currently on Museum District/Fairmount, Spring Garden, Logan Square, Rittenhouse, and Fittler BUT staying open minded. Could easily be persuaded to consider Old City, Society Hill, Queen Village, Washington Square and Bella Vista.
So... what have you seen or heard about that's off the radar? What gems are out there that aren't making it onto the MLS? I'm a quiet gentleman, am house trained and come with excellent references.
Due to the nature of this email, it's best to send me a private message (PM).
I appreciate any and all help. Thanks
