And Moorestown is a tad of a commute for Philly. All the roads in from there include tons of lights or you have to deal with 295 and that is a mess when it merges into 42/76 area.

It's definitely not as convenient as the Camden County towns directly on the Patco but I make my commute to center city at 17th/locust in 35 minutes from Woodcrest station. I do have to walk another 10 minutes but if you're getting off at 8th/market, it is not a long commute. The thing about Moorestown is that it is directly off 295 south so while the lights on 38 can be a pain, it is not so bad going to 295.

No way door to door in 35 minutes. Doubtful you make it in 45 minutes unless you time the pickup perfect and are SUPER close to I-295.

25min train ride from Woodcrest to 16th station alone. 10 minute walk on Philly side you just said. Now add in time to leave house and drive to station and park and walk to platform and wait for train.

Probably average just under an hour. Which to me is a LONG commute. But to some people that is acceptable.

It's 10 minutes to Woodcrest, 23 minutes on the train and walk to wherever from there. Since I take the Patco to the end and I also have to walk a good 10 minutes, my commute is about 45 minutes, sometimes 50 if I have to wait for another train.

I am a local Realtor. I would consider Haddon Twp. since Haddon Heights' taxes are ridiculous and the home prices are high considering the age of most homes and lack of amenities (many still have only 1 bathroom). For $275 you would be better off in Cherry Hill or Haddon Twp, both towns have similar taxes and schools are rated well for the state.There are some good websites to look at for schools to see their standings, like schoolmatters.com
I would start with Realtor.com and put in your price range and see what comes up. Cherry Hill homes are newer than the other towns on the PATCO route so you will have less to worry about, like old electrical wiring, etc. Even though the prices are down, $275 will only get you a modest sized home in the area and be prepared to do some redecorating.
Cinnaminson is nice but a bit further to get to PATCO, as are most Burlington County homes.
Finding your new home is all about discovery and elimination.
Good luck and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!
