Brookhaven's taxes are considered low for Delaware County.
My guide for taxes in Delaware County (have lived there for 53 years) is anything under $5K is LOW.

Actually Aston/Brookhaven have some of the lowest taxes in the county. Some parts of Aston are going downhill and Brookhaven is already on its way. Brookhaven is basically connected to Chester. Do any of you leave your house?

If you're going to pay 230,000 for a house, look in Marple, Newtown Square, Garnet Valley, Media, etc.

I pass through Aston at least once a week, and have friends who live there. A few less than desirable neighborhoods does not mean "going down hill" Brookhaven is slowly declining.

Where in Newtown Square/Media are you going to find a home for 230k that isnt a dump or extremely small.
The same could be said for Garnet Valley, hence why Aston and Brookhaven are better choices.
