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.
