My personal opinion is..."it is a nice area...convenient to shopping, transportation, restaurants. Great school district and it is very family, kids oriented. Lots of parks, activities for the kids and it is relatively safe. I have lived in the Abington area for 20 years and I still love it. But if you are buying, yes it is a good idea to listen to peoples opinion but also do your research.
If you would like a school report, crime & safety report please feel free to contact me.
