The Top Real Estate Companies in Pennsylvania

Whether it’s in the suburbs or its urban centers, Pennsylvania offers a diverse housing stock and affordability that’s attractive to buyers.

The median home value in Pennsylvania is about $261,000, according to Zillow — a 5.4% increase from a year prior. And Philadelphia remains one of the most affordable major cities in the U.S., with the median home value around $217,000. In Pittsburgh, it’s $227,000.

Compare that to the U.S. median home value of $354,000 and you see Pennsylvania is a bargain — and the secret is out.

“In the past three years, home prices in Pennsylvania have risen by 41.5%,” said NAR Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun in a webinar hosted by the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors. “This is one of the fastest price gains in Pennsylvania history. We have not seen home prices rise this strongly and in such a short time span.”

Steady job markets, cultural amenities and top colleges attract most residents to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Realtors anticipate revitalization efforts involving infrastructure, public spaces and amenities will only improve the appeal of the cities. Meanwhile, those seeking a quieter life have flocked to (and in some cases raised home values in) Lancaster, Allentown and Reading.
