Welcome to Aldan Borough Pennsylvania.
Today we are visiting the Aldan PA SEPTA 102 Trolley Line Station located in the center of Aldan at the intersection of Woodlawn Avenue and Providence Rd. Aldan Borough Pa is located just south of Clifton Heights, east of Upper Darby and Springfield, north of Collingdale and Sharon Hill, and generally west of Lansdowne and Darby.
The SEPTA 102 Line runs from the 69th Street Terminal to Sharon Hill. This station is just two stops south of where it crosses the SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Line which runs from Center City out to Media/Elwyn. This line runs down the center of Woodlawn Ave through the center of Aldan and does not have any designated parking although street parking is available. There is some additional parking adjacent to the R3 Station. With frequent service, this is a great local pick up point located adjacent to the Borough Hall and the Aldan Elementary School. The video will provide some additional details:
In general, real estate pricing has held up here better than in many sections of the county. After reaching a peak of 91 sales in 2004, sales volume has decreased across the board to 72 sales in 2005, 61 in 2006, 49 in 2007, 42 in 2008, and 18 in the last six months. Despite this declining sales rate, prices have remained relatively solid until just recently. In 2004 the average sales price was $158,000 which then jumped to $184,000 in 2005. Since then, there has been very little movement with prices averaging $188,000 in 2006, $189,000 in 2007, $182,000 in 2008, and $186,000 for the last six months. Currently, there are an additional 32 homes on the market with an average list price of $185,000 and seven pending sales with an average list price of $158,000. When these properties settle, we will see the average sales price going down a bit further.
So compared to many communities in the area, Aldan has proven to be one of the more stable areas. With its convenient location, the Borough remains popular with easy access to both the R3 Regional Rail and the SEPTA 102 Trolley with both providing quick access to Center City Philadelphia and the surrounding local communities.
