Film Summary:

This short documentary informs the viewer about purchasing a good property. Most people struggle to own homes because the average income in Philadelphia is not enough to adequately to cover the average monthly mortgage because of the mortgages being excruciatingly high. Residents of Philadelphia comment on their observations of the housing situations within their communities, focusing on buying versus renting properties.
