For all of you who are interested in buying Philadelphia’s city-owned properties, be sure to check out the Philly Landworks site. See below, this is directly from the site:
This is the starting point for purchasing publicly owned property in the City of Philadelphia. From here you can search for available properties, make an offer to buy a property, and track the property you’re interested in buying as it moves through the sale process.
If you are looking for a home to live in, this is not the right resource for you. Nearly all of the properties on this site are vacant lots, and the rest are vacant buildings that will need significant work before someone can live in them. For help on finding a place to live, visit our Frequently Asked Questions.
You can look for properties using our map and list tools or our Search function without registering, but if you want to offer to buy a property you’ll have to create an account.
That covers the basics, so Get Started!
Good luck, and be sure to post your results here on Abandoned Philadelphia.
