Hello Typtran,

Cheltenham taxes are relatively high yes. Yes you can appeal the taxes and most tax appeals are successful these days since property values have declined.

Glenside is divided into two townships, Abington and Cheltenham. Taxes in Cheltenham are higher due to the lack of industry in the township to share the tax burden. Home prices are l little lower in Cheltenham to try to compensate for the taxes. So the Taxes in Abington are less but home prices tend to be a little higher. If I knew the property I could give you a better idea of how well priced the home. Feel free to contact me for more info.
