Cranberry Township number one in home sales

September 4, 2012 by  

2011 was a great year for homes in Cranberry Township. The town topped the rankings for sales of homes in the Pittsburgh area, according to statistics compiled by RealSTAT and posted by the Pittsburgh Business Times on August 30.

The township had a total sales volume of over $159m for the year, pushing it to the top of the list. Following close behind was Adams Township, which neighbors Cranberry, where 570 homes were sold last year. Also making it onto the top 10 list were Moon Township, Upper St. Clair, and Peters Township. Adams distinguished itself by seeing the greatest increase in home sales since the year 2000. While Donegal Township did not make the top ten list, it did see the greatest appreciation in home value over an 11-year period.

Earning the number one ranking in home sales indicates that things are only looking up for Cranberry Township. The high sales volume suggests that the township has successfully put city planning into practice and that it has implemented a strong infrastructure.

Cranberry Township can celebrate its moment in the spotlight and use its high rank to promote further home sales. Brochure printing from a local Cranberry Township company could be used to highlight just what makes the township so desirable as a place to live and purchase a home.

The statistics showed that the entire metropolitan Pittsburgh area, which includes five counties, had a good year when it came to home sales. Over 23,000 homes were purchased last year in Allegheny, Butler, Beaver, Westmoreland, and Washington Counties. More than 3.7 billion was spent on home purchases in total.
