Asked by Adam, Southside Flats, Pittsburgh, PA • Fri Mar 14, 2008
I'm single and looking to buy a home in the White Oak / N. Huntingdon area in the range of $100 - $150k. To me the writing is on the wall that the North Huntingdon / Irwin area would be much more desirable for several reasons - the two major ones being lower taxes (Westmoreland county) and the school district (Norwin vs McKeesport). Even with those two things I see old homes in White Oak going for $140,000 that aren't that big and don't have much to offer. In fact there is one that fits that model off of Center St Ext and it doesn't even have a paved driveway! Compare that to homes off of Ridge Road (around $130,000) and even Markvue Manor ($140,000 - $160,000). Once you go further east (towards Kerber) you can find houses even cheaper ($120,000 - $130,000) for 4/3 bedroom, 2 bath. I'm from McKeesport and have friends in White Oak but looking 10-15 years down the road I see North Huntingdon being much more desirable than White Oak. Are my observations correct?
