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.
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. The area has a different feel than the more urban City Center and downtown Philly and prides itself on its livability. Here are some of the more popular neighborhoods in the city.
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.
