There are buyers for all of them. And they're both wonderful places in their own right.
I didn’t take it that way. I just think that, from a certain perspective, Havertown is already among the “most desirable“ suburbs, given the rapid over-asking sales around here. It does not offer the zip code cachet of- or the size or luxury of some homes on - the main line and its satellites (although, truth be told, we are a satellite to Wynnewood and Ardmore). However, it does offer location location location plus a more “townish” vibe with those in that market.

Philadelphia developer proposes $65 million luxury resort at Jersey Shore

Quote:
A Philadelphia developer is breaking into the Jersey Shore market with plans to build a more than $65 million luxury resort on 30 acres of land in Cape May County.

The Brickstone Cos.' President John Connors Sr. said the company is proposing a full-service "woodland retreat," dubbed the "Clermont Lodge," off the intersection of routes 83 and 9 in Cape May Courthouse. The location, an undeveloped patch of woods, is a few miles inland from both Sea Isle City and Avalon.

Site plans from Brickstone, the owner of the Lits Building and other Center City properties, shows a total of 120 overnight accommodations across the property's 56-room main lodge, 40 bungalows and 24 one- and two-bedroom cottages. The approximately 50,000-square-foot main lodge will also feature a restaurant and bar and spa services.
