For this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight, we decided to settle on that old real-estate adage: location, location, location.
Just steps from the fountain, 1139 Tasker St. has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms and a closet so big the seller is willing to turn it into a third bedroom if you want it. (Take the closet)
Coming in at $334,900, this 1,184 square foot house has been in the market since October, originally listed for $5,000 more. That seems like a sign, no?
From the listing, via CitySpace:
Motivated Seller! Renovated about 5 years ago is this 2 story 2 bed, 1.5 bath house in the heart of E Passyunk Sq with hardwood floors throughout! Sellers willing to add a 3rd bedroom by eliminating the master bedroom closet. 2 blocks from Broad St 1 block from the main strip of E Passyunk Ave where Izumi, Paradiso, Stateside, Cantina Los Caballitos and other great commercial vendors.
Did we mention the location?

What do you think? Is this a good price or does it need to inch down a bit more? There is an open house Sunday from noon to 1 p.m. if you want to check it out for yourself.
