Hi Nic, We would love to help you. We have more of a condo feel but you would rent. http://www.brookviewatelkinspark.com. You wouldn't have to worry about loosing equity in today's market or the stress of selling when you are ready to move on!

Hi Nic,
We are selling our condo (2 bedroom 2 bath) located in Amber, PA. It's the perfect place for a grad student. Maybe 20 minutes or so from Elkins Park. It's a great area in Montgomery County and a perfect location for easy access to the PA Turnpike, 309 expressway and the Ambler train station. The condo is located in a quiet and safe community called The Meadows of Lower Gwynedd and is in move in condition with many upgrades. The MLS # is 5331558 if you want to get more details. Good luck in your search.

Hi Nic,
I don't know if you plan to live in a condo by yourself, with your family or if you are going to look for roommates and plan to rent. Cheltenham township and Abington township have restrictions on how many unrelated people can live together in a property . Elkins Park is located in both townships. Cheltenham allows 3 unrelated people to live together. I am not sure about Abington but you might want to call the township at 267-536-1000 and ask for zoning. On a different note, whether you rent or buy, Elkins Park is a great location! A quick train ride to center city or to the airport, close to all the major roads. Another plus, you'll find Whole Foods and Trader Joe's within a 5 minute drive.
