Hello. I have been seeing many houses for sale in Plum Boro. Is there a reason for this? I know that some parts of Plum are not good, yet which ones?

Thanks.

Most of Plum Boro is good if you ask me unless I'm missing something. It's still fairly rural but it's always growing and continues to grow. In fact, many predict it will eventually be like a mini "Cranberry/Wexford" drawing what's left of Monroeville to Plum Boro. The school district is fairly good, too. In my opinion, it might really be something to check out, I've seen some really nice homes in Plum, old and new alike.

You can get to Pittsburgh from Plum several different ways. You can take some back roads, can get on the parkway and try your luck with the Sq. Hill tunnels, or you could get on Rt. 28 which is also not terribly far away.

I would think your best bet would be to head to Oakmont and head across the river to South 28. If you did this....... I truly couldn't imagine a commute of more than 30 minutes, but I COULD be wrong. Plum is a big place, one side is very close to Oakmont and the other isn't. Depends where your house resides.

Plum Boro is an extention of Penn Hills and Monroeville. The houses look the same and the town has the same feel. Most of the homes there were built in the 60's and have old people living in them who want to move to Florida. That's why they are up for sale.

At first I thought I missed you. And then I changed my mind.

WHAT? Come on Bobby, I may be speaking in general terms but you can't sit there and actually deny what I said there! If you changed your mind about missing me, don't sweat it. I'll be banned from here in a couple of hours anyway.
Happy Easter!

There has always been a lot of houses for sale in Plum.

Tell us where you know the bad areas are so we can learn something.

Plum is very large in area so commute time to downtown depends where you live. As boylocke said, taking shortcuts to Rt. 28 will likely be your best bet time wise.

Also, if u get off @ wilkinsburg before the tunnels, you can snake your way into Oakland and then downtown rather easily.

I just assumed that some parts were bad. Mistake on my part. I am not at all familiar with Pittsburgh and was wondering why there are so many houses on sale in Plum?
