Aldan real estate activity gets off to a bit of a slow start in 2011.
Aldan PA is one of the smaller boroughs in Delaware County PA and is known as the Community of Homes. It is just 6 miles west of Philadelphia and currently has approximately 1500 residential properties with just over 4000 residents. Founded in 1893, Aldan has always focused on the success and lifestyle of its residents and has traditionally had few businesses. With excellent transportation links to the surrounding area, Aldan is today served by both the the SEPTA 102 Trolley Line and the SEPTA Media/Elwyn Regional Rail Line (formerly R3 Line) as well as the local SEPTA bus lines. These provide quick and easy access to downtown Philadelphia.
