Sharon Hill PA 102 Trolley SEPTA Station – End of the Line

July 11, 2009

Sharon Hill PA SEPTA 102 Trolley StationWelcome to Sharon Hill PA.

This SEPTA station is located on the Chester Pike just a few blocks east of Oak Lane and west of the Borough Hall.  It does not have any parking dedicated to the station itself but has plenty of room for dropping off or picking up passengers along Chester Pike or in the adjacent commercial parking lots.  The SEPTA 102 Trolley runs out of the 69th Street Terminal, and this could be a good public transportation connecting point through the nearby SEPTA bus stop.  It is also within a long walking distance of the Folcroft R2 Regional Rail station.

There are a wide variety of housing choices in the area from single family homes to twins and row homes.  These residential properties plus many commercial operations are also within easy walking distance of this station.  The video will provide a better feel for the area:

As far as real estate, Sharon Hill has followed a bit different path than much of the county.  For the most part, sales volume has held relatively steady except for 2008.  In 2002 there were 55 sales, then 52 in 2003, 61 in 2004, 60 in 2005, 62 in 2006, 54 in 2007,  then fell to 36 in 2008, and back up to 27 so far this year.

On the other hand prices rose from just $80,000 in 2004 to a peak average price of $137,000 in 2007.  This then fell to $119,000 in 2008 and $112,000 so far this year.  There are also an additional 43 homes currently on the market with an average price of $127,000 and 8 homes under contract with an average price of $89,000 – average sales price will continue down at least in the short term.

Sharon Hill has many public transportation options, great road connections, and is only minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport.  With it’s great location but limited parking, this stop is an ideal station for both the local homes and businesses.
