Does anyone know if the prices are correct? A house listed here in Broomall is right near me and I wonder how bad the house shape must be because nearby houses are going for at least $250,000.

I thought some of the prices seemed low as well, Margaret, but that is what was listed on the county site.

Most appear to be taxes owed on these properties

So it appears that the vacant house on Surrey Drive in Newtown Square will continue to be vacant. A $250,000 house listed for almost $399,000??? How do they expect someone to buy that? It's been an eyesore for years, not to mention a party house for local delinquents who break into it. Mess.
