Of course, there are also surface routes as well.
376 is still free as far away from Pittsburgh as the Chippewa exit (above Beaver), and then it is tolled.

Yeah 120-150K is doable depending on what you want in a house. Inventory is low here still but after COVID demand seems to have dropped a little but still can move fast on a good place with inventory low. Coraopolis isn't a bad drive from most areas west and if you only have to drive in every once in a while even east could work.

We are looking for a 3br home, ideally. A 2br would work but we plan on expanding to a third child in the next year or two. Would prefer to have a garage or larger shed on the lot but that is not a deal-breaker whatsoever. Being from New England originally, I have no qualms with older homes at all and am open to just about all styles of homes.

Are you only looking for small town or would more rural also work? I think 2br are actually harder to find outside the city area so I would not think a 3 bedroom and a garage/shed would be too much to ask for. You said you didnt mind a drive but is there distance you want to stay within?

If you are only looking for higher rated schools there is down the river a little Leetsdale area which is still Quaker Valley maybe not actual small town with a business district like Beaver but not too far from there and close to the Sewickley business area. Its also an easier drive to Coraopolis.

More rural is absolutely fine with us! Anything other than urban is great. Being 60 to 75 mins from Downtown Pittsburgh would be ideal

Get yourself a good buyers agent *hint* Knepper3 *hint* who knows the area and can expand the search to places you may not know about.

I'd be wary of Beaver. While it's a nice small town, it's downwind only a couple of miles of a new massive ethane cracker plant.


Quote:
The air emissions are going to be so severe, they're going to notice it immediately,” she said.Subra has studied the impact of cracker plants in Louisiana, where an industrial area between New Orleans and Baton Rouge has been called "cancer alley."


She said that, as in Louisiana, the Beaver cracker will lead to more petrochemical plants in the area, and that will have a dramatic impact on public health.


“It's going to be as bad or worse than any of the plants in Louisiana and then suddenly, you're going to have a Pennsylvania cancer alley like we have here in Louisiana,” she said.


Asked if the cracker plant could lead to a cancer alley in Pennsylvania, Schwartz said, “That's not something I can comment on.”
