I recently bought a house that was built in 1985. The problem with houses of that age, I realized, is lots of the components (roof, windows, even dumb stuff like electrical switches) are built to last about 30 years. I would check the status of those things to know what repairs would be upcoming.

Bluewin888, I think, is looking for investment properties, not a place to live.

Looking at Plymouth meeting and fort Washington area


Either single or multifamily.

Any pollution in that area ?


Budget : up to $600k.

Not many new houses.

Now the listings are overpriced ?

I live right outside of Lansdale boro (still in zip code 19446). I personally think the area is very nice and the town is a great place to raise a family. I'll have 2 kids currently in the school district with our third entering kindergarten next year. Also have a 4br/2.5bath house worth around 475k built in 1991.


You are right by the turnpike and there are several SEPTA regional rail stops in the area. There are many parks and recreational areas to enjoy too.


The town has several breweries which are fun. The first Friday of each month the town holds a 'first Friday' event which has a different theme each month (zombie walk is this Friday ). Check out more here: http://www.discoverlansdale.org/


Also in the immediate area is North Wales (zip 19454) and Hatfield (zip 19440). There are some new homes being built in 19446 here: https://www.pulte.com/homes/pennsylvania/philadelphia/upper-gwynedd/gwynedd-ridge-210261 that are in the $600k range (I drive by all the time).
