Butler County Begins Outpacing Surrounding Area for Residential Growth

Peachmont Farms

Here is an example of a home that could be built in the Peachmont Farms neighborhood.

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that Butler County is a popular place to live. After all, it’s next door neighbors with Cranberry Township. Plus, it’s convenient to the many suburbs and corporate centers closer to Pittsburgh thanks to the many major roadways that are nearby such as I-79 and I-279, as well as near Routes 19 and 228. But what may come as a surprise is that Butler County is actually growing at a substantially faster rate in terms of residential homes compared to North Allegheny County which is just to its south.

Many reasons factor into this growth, such as the continually growing job market inside Cranberry Township (27,000 professional jobs and counting), a shortage of housing in Cranberry Township and the rapid rate of growth that has consumed the once more attainable area.

Beyond that, however, some residents are seeking to cross the border into Butler County for other reasons. The lower tax structure, for instance, allows residents to take a breather from steep property taxes without sacrificing a quality education for their family. Living in Butler County also tends to afford residents opportunities for more land at a lower price point. Not living on top of your next door neighbor is definitely attractive for those who can remember what the area used to feel like just 10 or 20 years ago. Homes also tend to be priced lower, although they are rising due to the popular demand in the area.

All of this has led to a housing shortage of sorts in Butler County, making brand new communities like S&A Homes’ Peachmont Farms even more attractive. This brand new, custom home community offers the best Butler County has to offer – spacious, scenic home sites, award-winning Seneca Valley Schools, affordable customizable homes and a premium location that is only 15 minutes from Cranberry Commons, which offers the area’s best shopping and

dining venues. Even better is that residents can choose from more than a dozen floor plans ranging in size from 2,000 square feet up to 4,000 square feet and priced from the affordable $310,000s. Given that the neighborhood is just minute from its Adams Township and Cranberry Township counterparts that would sell the same homes for thousands more, it’s quite a steal but only while it lasts. These homes are selling very quickly and what was once a bargain may no longer be if you miss out on this limited time opportunity to seize pre-construction pricing.
