The American dream is to buy a home, whether you’re in Pennsylvania or anywhere else across the country. If you really want to buy a home and have a household income of $65,000 or less, perhaps that dream has seemed out of reach the past few years. But, the good news is that a new study looks at 10 cities that are the best places to buy a home with a household income of $65,000 or less, and one is in Pennsylvania.
The study comes from RocketHomes.com. They state, “When it comes to choosing a city to put down roots, there are many factors at play. Those may include the surrounding neighborhoods, culture and entertainment amenities, school districts, job opportunities and outdoor offerings. While all of these are important when deciding on a next locale, there is one that may be most essential of all – whether one can comfortably afford to live there.”
They add that Rocket HomesSM teamed up with BestPlaces.net to discover some of the best places to buy a home on a $65,000 household income, including both small towns and bigger cities. There’s something for everyone on this list.
One Pennsylvania city made the cut. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, came in at No. 7 on the tally. The city’s median home price is $208,446. Of the city, Rocket Homes says, “The City of Bridges surrounds the point where the Ohio River, Allegheny River and Monongahela River converge, providing ample opportunity for water recreation and enjoyment. That includes fishing, kayaking, rowing and boating.” They add that, “From recreation to culture, cuisine and opportunity, Pittsburgh has several features that put it in the top 20% of the country for good health.” Find the full list of choice cities here.
