That is a nice area. Close to shopping, you have Route 1 to take you DOWN to Center City or north to go to Bucks County, North NJ and NY or connect to the PA Turnpike and head to the Poconos. You also have Cottman Ave. to take you out to Montgomery County or down to the Tacony Palmyra Bridge to South Jersey. There are great places to eat all around the area. Every area offers something different. What appeals to one person may not appeal to another. Some things that determine what area someone buys a property in is the amount of mortgage they qualify for, schools, and travel time they prefer. Do they want to drive 1hr to work and be by shopping and restaurants or drive 30 minutes to work and be further from them. I suggest you walk around the area on a Sunday. People are usually out doing yard work at this time of year. Stop and talk with them and ask them what they like and don't like about the area. This should give you an idea if it is the right area for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
