If the house is in Garrision Greene, I have lived in this development for the last six years, and I'm very happy.

Here's my input on your questions above:
1.) I've seen significant flooding happen on the turnpike entrence and by MaGerks up the street. In terms of flooding in the development, the elevation is very high, and there have been no issues anywhere in the development.

2.) I was very nervous about the noise prior to moving into my house. Let's be honest, the property is close to the turnpike & the train. The septa train really isn't a concern from a noise perspective. The highway noise would depend on where the townhome is located in the community.

I really enjoy living here, we have great neighbors, and are in a wonderful location.

I would highly recommend living in this community.

My first inclination is to say yes, however, it depends how your lease reads, and may be negotiable.

Good luck!

Hi Farrah,
As explained by the other reponses, taxes are issued within each individual township. Fort Washington is a "mailing address" per the post office. Whitemarsh and Upper Dublin Townships both have Fort Washington mailing addresses. I actually think that the taxes are reasonable due to the presence of a business base within both townships, relative to some of the sorrounding townships (ie Cheltenham, Abingtont etc). A beautiful place certianly to make a home...Fort Washington. Definite examples can be provided to you through the MLS. EASY!!! ... more

If your loan is more than 80% of the appraised value of your home, you must escrow your taxes. If your loan is less than 80%, you may pay them yourself like you do now. However, there is a fee to have the escrows waived.
Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. The very best of luck to you!
