#HotProps: 1240 N. 4th St. Brings Luxury to South Kensington.



By: Jarek Cotto

1240 N. 4th is one of South Kensingtons premier residential homes. It’s just a stones throw the hustle and bustle of Northern Liberties. The first recorded sale of this home was in February 1986 to a lady named Gladys Lopez for $8,300. Over the years it has been purchased by different companies with the goal of renovating and flipping the home for a profit.

In January 1996, Inner City Rehabilitators Inc purchased the home for $10,000 and flipped it in 2003 for a profit of $20,000. The next purchase was not until 2005 when the home was sold to its current owners for $300,000 after it was expertly renovated.

This enormous increase in property values illustrates the trajectory of home pricing in the microcosm of Nolibs and Philadelphia on a larger scale.

The story of this home shows how rapidly development and gentrification have been advancing in this area for years.

 RE/MAX Access’ own Christopher Somers is the listing agent for this South Kensington gem.
