Skippack is an awesome town. Check out my friend's blog about Skippack at http://ILoveSkippack.com
for details on the area. In regards to the market, there are a few town home communities within walking distance. Carriage Run is a beautiful development of affordable homes in the low $200's. Within a few minutes drive, there is a newer development with larger homes in the mid to upper $200's called Monroe Court. Also within walking distance is Fort Bevon, an older community of twin homes. And then, there is new construction in Biltmore Estates right in the village with condos, town homes and single homes in a variety of prices. To see all of the homes currently available in Skippack, visit http://michaelsrealestateblog.com/Skippack.
Skippack is also located in a USDA approved location so 100% financing is available making the area extremely affordable. Let me know if I can be of any help.
