What $500K Will Buy You in Lansdale
There comes a time in every young Philadelphian’s life when you have a decision to make: Should you stay in the city forever, or should you settle down in the suburbs? If you choose the latter, you will probably end up somewhere in either Bucks, Delaware, or Montgomery County. If you choose the latter again and find yourself leaning towards Montgomery County, you will definitely want to check out the real estate market in Lansdale.
Located 28 miles northwest of Philadelphia, Lansdale borough has a population of about 16,300 people and provides families with that desirable small-town atmosphere. Your budget shouldn’t be an issue here, either, because properties currently on the market range anywhere from as low as $100,000 up to $1,000,000 – and beyond. However, if you’re looking for a place right around the $500,000 mark, there are many decent options available. Take a look at the three homes listed below and decide for yourself if the suburban lifestyle is right for you.
