Looking for a new home in Harrisburg? It is a great time to buy real estate in Central PA! Harrisburg is the state capitol of PA, replacing Philadelphia in 1812. The Harrisburg metropolitan area has more of a small-town atmosphere than many of the East Coast's larger metro areas. And with one of the country's most affordable housing markets and a cost of living below the national average, Harrisburg provides an urban atmosphere with a manageable price tag. The great outdoors are easily accessible in “the ‘burg”…bikers and runners can take in the scenery of the Susquehanna River on the trails of Riverfront Park, which also hosts many of the metro area's annual festivals and events. With 1,100 acres devoted to parks, Harrisburg once boasted more parks per square mile than any other city in America. Residents enjoy hiking the famous Appalachian Trail or camping and mountain biking in the many nearby state parks and forests. Harrisburg residents are within easy driving distance of Amish country, Gettysburg National Military Park and Hersheypark – with its amusement park, concert series and The Spa At The Hotel Hershey (famous for its chocolate treatments). Big-city weekend getaways are also there for the taking; New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. are a few hours away by car. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or you are already familiar with the home buying process, you can be assured that I have the best tools available to help with your Harrisburg home search!
