Pike County & Eastern Poconos
Affordable home values … property tax advantages, proximity to places of employment in New York and Northern New Jersey … these are a few of the tangible economic reasons to consider living in Pennsylvania. But just as important for most of our clients is the powerful emotional tug this special corner of the state exerts on them. Many have realized an opportunity to experience home ownership in an area that they first came to know as a visitor.
Pike County’s natural borders of the Delaware River and Lake Wallenpaupack enclose a diverse landscape of mountains and forests, lakes and streams, and abundant wildlife (approx. one third of its total acreage is protected through federal and state government ownership). And its towns, like quaint Victorian Milford, have a reassuring authenticity and permanence. See for yourself, pick a weekend to experience the popular sights in the area.
