Montgomery County, or Montco for short, is the county located to the north and northwest of Philadelphia. As the third-most populous county in Pennsylvania and covering 487 sq miles, you have a mix of both densely populated areas and farmland within the borders. So whether you are looking for a rowhouse or to have a healthy distance between you and your neighborhood, Montco has it.

Today we are going to take a deeper dive into the real estate stats for these five areas: Conshocken, Ardmore, Narberth, Blue Bell and King of Prussia.
