Moving to Drexel Hill

Drexel Hill is a highly desirable neighborhood, given that it’s so close to Philly and is such a tight community. Many people move to Drexel Hill and fall in love, or move to Philly and end up relocating to Drexel Hill. The area at large features a lot of homes for sale but apartments for rent can be found if you have a little extra time and patience to poke around. Make a few appointments with your broker and don’t give up until you find the right place! Check out the neighborhoods and ask around first. Make sure to look at apartment rentals in a few different areas to see what the difference is. It might be worth shelling out a little extra to make sure you're in a neighborhood you like! Also, don't forget to carry with you copies of everything you'll need to seal the deal – this includes proof of income, ID and various financial documents. Check with your broker to make sure you know exactly which ones you'll need. If you have all the right paperwork and a checkbook to boot, you'll be all set to snag your dream home as soon as you set eyes on it.

Neighborhoods in Drexel Hill

All of Drexel Hill itself is a neighborhood of Philly, but that doesn’t mean it’s not big enough to have its own distinct neighborhoods.

Huey Ave/North Lansdowne Avenue: Primarily composed of handsome and historic houses and apartment buildings, it’s charming and a great place to plant roots.

Upper Darby: Area with lots of spacious homes with large yards.

Aronimink:It’s a good place to hunt for one bedroom apartments or apartment complexes.

West Township: Quite a bit cheaper than most areas in Drexel hill.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
