Been looking for about 6 months for a single in the 350-450k price range in the Newtown/Yardley/Holland/Washington Crossing area.
Everything I have seen in that range is built in the 50s or 60s, is rather small, and frankly seems expensive for what you get. I know the reason is because these areas are easily commutable to philly/princeton/nyc.
I was thinking of expanding my search to the pipersville area, in the CB East school district. The houses I am seeing in the ~450k-475k price range are much more modern (built in the early 90s), spacious, and generally seem really nice.
I am not too familiar with this area, and my agent, who is great, she is not that familiar either with pipersville.
Is this a good neighborhood from an investment perspective? The CB East school district is great, but I am worried in an economic housing downturn that the homes in pipersville will lost value much greater than newtown/yardley area, because pipersville is kind of in the middle of nowhere.
I personally love the area, but was hoping people who are familiar with pipersville could chime in as to whether I should consider it.
For me, the commute to work is fine – I am just thinking from an investment perspective.
Thank you for reading.
