City Guide

Lancaster
"Missing you, my brother. […] I remember when we sat on the shore. We talked about my great white north. […] I miss you and your Lancaster ways. I sit to contemplate the waves of the ocean. They bring me back to you. You weren't like the others, with their empty eyes and plastic smiles." (The Beautiful Mistake).

A city which plays home to people with varying budgets, Lancaster, PA, is a residential paradise. A short drive away from the capital, as well as New York and Philadelphia, Lancaster spreads across seven square miles and has around 56,000 dwellers who lovingly call it home. This city lies in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and is a peaceful and serene area, surrounded by farms and country-style living. Besides the quaint atmosphere -- which makes one feel transported to Europe in the early 1970s -- the views afforded by the Susquehanna River make Lancaster a popular residential choice with young couples and families with small children, looking for the perfect place to raise their kids away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Let’s explore your options if you’re looking to make one of the oldest and most historic cities in the USA your home.

Moving to Lancaster

Some aspects to consider before booking a pad in the city, are as:

Budget Friendly The average cost of a house has decreased by 1.6% since the past year, and the volume of houses sold has decreased by 16%. Known for its beautiful architecture, Lancaster offers more spacious houses at economical rates. The best part is that no matter what your pocket allows, you will find the right home in this city to suit your budget. From brand-spanking new downtown condominiums to cozy country cottages and even homes with a historic angle, Lancaster has affordable house rentals to suit every palate.

Preparing for Super-Storm Contingencies Before you plan to rent an apartment in the city, research and learn about the natural calamities that Lancaster is prone to. Prepare well in advance of your move to deal with any such contingency. Another crisis that needs to be considered is the ongoing pension crisis in Pennsylvania. Current pensions are boring into 65 cents per dollar of revenue earned by the government. It is estimated that each household could be compelled to contribute around $13,000 in order to fund government services. However, there are tax payer-friendly reforms currently taking place to deal with this crisis, including reducing the tax cuts afforded to businesses, and considering the issuance of pension obligation bonds.

Bringing Together Your Budget and Your Dream Home in Lancaster With the variety and types of houses available in Lancaster to suit every budget and taste, it is advisable to do a thorough tour and research of the area much before deciding on the one perfect pad. With so much to do and see around the city, it makes sense to pick a residence in an area which caters to all your favorite activities, or is close to your kids’ schools.

Getting into the Good Books of the Owner Besides a month’s worth of house rent in advance, you may have to provide a security deposit of around a month’s rent, and show a good credit record. Having a strong guarantor to back your standing, should your bank balance be low, can increase your prospects of getting your dream home. Copies of all important identity documents and references from your hometown or town of prior residence, could hold you in good stead with the owner of the house you have been secretly eyeing.
