Two PA Communities Named "Most Family-Friendly"

Two communities in Pennsylvania were named "Most Family Friendly" according to a report from HomeUnion. In its list, both Horsham, PA (Philadelphia) and  Cranberry Township, PA (Pittsburgh) were selected using the most affordable ZIP codes with at least 30 home sales in each metro where the average school rating was at least in the 80th percentile. Median sale prices were determined by looking at single-family homes sold for more than $30,000 in late 2016 and early 2017. Investment properties were not included.

“As home prices continue to increase in many coastal markets, particularly in the western U.S., we are seeing the best opportunities for first-time home buyers with families in the center of the country," said Steve Hovland, director of research for HomeUnion.

Here are the 15 best places for families to live based on housing affordability and school quality:
