Philadelphia

OCF Realty is a committed to developing its Philadelphia neighborhoods. In the Fall of 2013, OCF Realty unveiled its newest community partnership program to benefit Chester Arthur, a K-8 elementary school located on the 2000 block of Catharine Street. For every home sold or purchased through OCF Realty within the Chester Arthur catchment, a donation of $1,000 from the transaction will be given to Friends of Chester Arthur (FoCA). These donations can help pay for everyday needs, like school supplies and routine upkeep.

Whether you rent from OCF Realty in Graduate Hospital, Old City or Northern Liberties, any OCF tenant can pay monthly rent online quickly and securely.  Shortly after your scheduled move-in date, you will be provided with a Tenant Portal account via email.  There, you can set up reoccurring rent payments, divide rent payments among roommates, and review past payments.

Getting started is as easy as one, two, three.

The other night, after a tasty adult beverage at the Industry, we noticed a construction site nearby. The next day, we zoomed back to Pennsport to take a closer look. What we discovered at 1327 E. Moyamensing Ave. is a new single family homes that's been framed out in recent months.
