West Norriton Township Reviews

I live in the Halford Tract, where the people are nice and friendly. A large house can be purchased at a reasonable price, compared to places like the Main Line. Pride in home ownership shows with the neatly landscaped lawns. However, property taxes in this area are too high and punishing to those who are not working, such as people who are laid-off or retired. Taxes per square foot are about double those of homes in places like Las Vegas or the Maryland, for example. Since Pennsylvania government is still operating like it's the 19th Century, the only solution will be for some people to move to areas that are taxed less harshly.

Great Calm Neighborhood, in between many shoping centers and only about 20 minutes away from valley forge.
We have your average big box stores, along with a multi-state convenience store chain with gas. Mom and Pop shops are hard to start since real estate and real estate taxes are so high. The Mom and Pop shops that do get a chance to start, have a very hard time competing and at least 90% fail...unless you are a legal immigrant. If you are a legal immigrant, you are eligible for ENORMOUS tax reductions and multiple self-start business opportunities.
