These communities are vastly different. 19123 is an urban residential neighborhood of center city.
19144 is a nearly suburban neighborhood by comparison.
19123 is continuing to become an increasingly stable, well established community, experiencing increasing development and very much offers a city lifestyle. Subway, walking, biking, new eating and drinking spots, new construction and a healthy mix of single family row homes, as well as condo's exist.
19144 is considerably less forward in development level. It is mainly single family homes, some apartment rentals, very city sprawl suburban in style, still city but not city center. You can go into 19118 or 19129 for a diverse group of eating and drinking options, and it is fairly close to Fair mount Park. Additionally, I believe there are regional rail options to travel into the city center. You most likely will need a car.
There is not real average home price in these two areas. Type of home, condition of home, location of home impact too many details to give you a simple number. It would not be accurate.
