Homes Sales in Gristmill Run, Towamencin Township, Lansdale PA - 2005 - 2011Since the price peaks of 2006, home prices have declined throughout the country.  Montgomery County PA is no exception, and average prices are 15-20% off their peaks.  But looking at averages throughout a county as large as Montgomery County don't always provide an accurate picture of what is happening in some communities or developments; some pockets have held up better than others.

Let's look specifically at Gristmill Run; this is a development of 160 beautiful single family homes in Towamencin Township built in the early-1990's.  Most of the homes are 4BR/2.5BA colonials with full basements and 2-car garages, situated on cul-de-sacs with relatively small lots (0.15 - 0.4 acres) but abundant open space throughout the development.  Nicely situated, Gristmill Run is relatively close to the Lansdale exit of the PA Turnpike, Route 309 and Septa's R-5 regional rail line making it good for commuting.  Gristmill Run is part of the well-known North Penn School District, plus shopping, parks and recreation are easily accessible.

In 2005, nine homes in Gristmill Run sold with prices ranging from $335K - $429K and an average price of $397K and 23 days on the market.
