Historic Charm and Modern Amenities Available from the $240’s Near Pittsburgh

Sarver's Mill pool Owning a home in the suburbs doesn’t need to be boring. Despite the mental image of cookie cutter homes on tiny lots, most neighborhoods in the Pittsburgh burbs are far from this picture. Rolling hills, established tree lines and historic towns dot the landscape outside of the urban city center.

But Sarver’s Mill takes this to another level. Located just 30 minutes from Downtown Pittsburgh, this charming community offers brand new, larger home sites backing to open space in a historic setting. In fact, the community offers today’s most desirable amenities with breathtaking views of the Little Buffalo Creek that surrounds the neighborhood and offers residents a beautiful setting for life and recreation.

Expecting a Tax Refund? Double It During May!

Double Your Tax ReturnWell, the dreaded IRS Tax deadline has already passed and May is here. Despite the complaints about the process, it is surprising to learn that more than 80 percent of Americans will actually receive a tax refund this year. While it’s great to have some “bonus” money, wouldn’t it be even better to double your tax refund?

During the month of May, any homebuyer who is in the market for a new home in Centre, Blair, Cambria and Huntingdon counties is in for a better than normal tax return.
