Renter's guide to Philadelphia, PA

Known for its outstanding food, historical tourist destinations, and dynamic sports teams (Philadelphia Eagles, anyone?), Philadelphia is one of the biggest cultural hotspots on the East Coast.

Bordered by the Schuylkill and Delaware rivers, Philadelphia is the largest city in the state, twice large as Pittsburgh and twice as small as New York. Philadelphia is approximately 133 miles southeast of New York and roughly 100 miles northeast of DC, a quick move that is only hours away.

The spring season (March-May) is sunny with occasional rain showers, and has an average temperature of 54 F. Summers (June-August) are sunny and humid, with an average temperature of 75 F. Autumn seasons (September-November) are moderate with an average temperature of 58 F. Winters are frigid and snowy with an average of 34 F.

Tips for renting in Philadelphia, PA

As a renter, your security deposit cannot be more than two months’ rent. From October-April, the landlord must provide you with heat at a minimum of 68 F (unless you have your own thermostat). This rule also applies in May and September if the outdoor temperature is less than 60 F. You can refuse to pay rent until important repairs are made.

If you are one of the many people moving to Philadelphia from NYC, you will find the housing to be much more affordable. If you do not own a car, don’t buy one (there is a general lack of parking in Philadelphia). Hire professional movers instead.
