They would pay at least 1 percent in most if not all of the surrounding burbs. So when you look at Philly you are really only like 3 percent for living there.

I second Northern Liberties. Could easily commute to Bensalem via I-95. Has that young urban vibe that these guys are looking for:

The Piazza

Liberties Lofts - Loft Apartments in Northern Liberties

They all look nice except that "victorian" which is Hideous but will you have to buy furniture and a lawnmower?

Haha, funny you say that. One of my future roommates is in Philly right now taking charge of our search. He likes the Victorian best and seems to have his heart set on it.

Yea, we'll have to buy furniture. I'm coming from FL and they're coming from upstate NY, too much of a hassle to move our furniture.

If you want to live in the city you have to make that your priority. Jobs in the city are in higher demand and go faster. Otherwise you'll find it very easy to get jobs outside the city. I had to decline many jobs in the suburbs before I could get one in the city and even then it was very competitive.

Aren't they working at Parx? That's the casino on Street Road in Bensalem.
For rental houses I would use www.trulia and just because the victorian is hideous doesn't mean it won't suit your needs. You really don't care what it looks like do you? There is an Ikea off I-95 in South Philadelphia not too far that would provide basic furniture. Traditional furniture stores are so expensive.
