Homes & Real Estate
Purchasing a home is one of the largest commitments an individual or a family makes in one’s lifetime, and it can impact your financial health for many years to come.
Real estate in the Juniata River Valley is a tremendous value, making your dream home even more attainable. The median value of a home in Pennsylvania stands at $174,100. The median home value in Juniata County is $148,900 and in Mifflin County it is $117,900, 14.5% and 32.3% less, respectively, allowing your mortgage dollars to buy significantly more home here. But even more importantly, homes here are significantly more affordable than in many neighboring counties. A good highway system links the area to State College and Harrisburg, making the Juniata River Valley attractive for commuters. The area’s proximity affords local residents access to State College’s wide variety of cultural opportunities while offering much lower home costs.
A growing, stable economy, abundant recreational opportunities, safe family-oriented communities, and scenic surroundings, are just a few of the factors that make buying or building your next home here a sure bet.
