You get more for less in NEPA.

With lower taxes than most major metropolitan cities in the northeast and rent and mortgage payments well below the regional monthly median, you’ll rest easy with the knowledge that your dollar goes much further in NEPA.

NEPA is a Great Place to Call "Home"

The abundance of friendly neighborhoods, convenient commutes, and high-quality schools lends a greater degree of flexibility to NEPA’s extensive housing market. Urban dwellers, suburban space-seekers, and even pastoral dreamers can all find a place to call “home” in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

In the Middle of the Action

If you’re seeking easy access to shops and restaurants and want to say goodbye to long commutes, NEPA’s metro areas are perfect for you. You’ll have a quick drive to work or school from many of the neighborhoods either in or just outside the city, where you’ll find a wide variety of single-family homes and duplexes. Or you can ditch commuting altogether and live directly downtown in an apartment or condo.

Away From it All (but not too far away)

NEPA’s rural communities offer small-town charm and acre upon acre of space to call home. You’ll find affordable homes, often with land, within many of the smaller townships and boroughs. Look for larger, rural lots or estates on the outskirts of town — all offering easy access to major roadways and local amenities. And while your neighbors may be farther away, you’ll never be more than 25 minutes from the nearest city or suburb.
