Owning a New Home in the Suburbs

If you’re considering ditching the hustle and bustle of life in the city and thinking about owning a home in the suburbs, Berks Homes has you covered. Berks new home communities provide a wide array of options for first-time homebuyers. From those who are ready to upgrade to the next level of homeownership to those who are looking for a change of lifestyle and ready to move to the suburbs of Pennsylvania, Berks Homes has the new home you’re looking for.


One of the perks of buying a new home in the suburbs is that it’s quieter. Homeowners are able to enjoy the peace and tranquility of being surrounded by trees and grass, while also appreciating space of their very own. Berks new home communities are located throughout Eastern, Central, and State College PA. These premier Pennsylvania locations are ideal for commuters, giving homeowners the flexibility of having a job in the city but enjoying home life in the nearby suburbs. Revel in the luxury of having the convenience of shopping, entertainment, great schools, and major employment centers just miles from your doorstep.


Living in a city like Pittsburgh or Philadelphia can be expensive. Renting in the city can cost just as much as paying a mortgage on a home. And it isn’t just the rent that’s expensive, it’s the utilities, parking and more. These costs can all add up to be well above the average mortgage on one of our new homes. Now is definitely a great time to take advantage of historically low-interest rates by investing in a new home. Check out our previous blog, How Much Does it Cost to Build a New Home in Central Pennsylvania to get an idea of how much buying a new home in the Pennsylvania suburbs might cost. 


Berks Homes has been building new home communities throughout Central Pennsylvania for over 40 years and we’re proud to provide high-quality homes in some of Pennsylvania’s most desired areas like Camp Hill, York, and the Main Line. Our new home communities are designed with our homeowner's ideal lifestyle in mind and every detail is thoughtfully considered to provide the ultimate convenience for everyday life, a stark contrast to what life’s like in the city. 


Another great thing about moving to the suburbs is having more space. Our homes are built with the buyer in mind and we know no one wants to feel cramped in their own home. Our new homes in Central Pennsylvania range from 1,500 square feet to over 2,000 square feet. We have communities and floor plans to accommodate all types of buyers; from one level living to single-family homes and townhomes. We have something for everyone to call home.


Of course, buying a home is a major financial decision that’s why Berks Homes has streamlined our buying process in order to provide our customers with flexibility and peace of mind. We pride ourselves on inviting our customers into the home building process as much as possible, giving them the opportunity to weigh in and truly personalize their new homes. Additionally, when buying a home with Berks, all deposits can be paid separately; from the initial agreement of sale, floorplan options, and all Selection Gallery choices.
