Most Expensive Home:  100 Pembroke Ave.  Wayne, Pa 19087 is for sale for $7,650,000.  This is such a unique estate located on almost 2 acres and the interior is 11,500 SF.  It is a Tudor mansion but has been updated with classic moulding and materials.  I love the ceilings.  It looks like an investment group bought it in 2014 for cash for $2 million when it was an estate sale.  They did a beautiful job remodeling the home.

10 acre properties are the best deals in PA Real Estate

My Takeaway:  A property on 10 acres can save you $800/mo in your payment or with a loan you can afford $228,000 more with low taxes.

Act 319 is a law passed in Pennsylvania in 1974.  It lowers property taxes for property with at least 10 acres.  I pulled up properties under $700,000 in our area with at least 10 acres.

I’m going to compare 2 properties priced at $599,000.  One is under Act 319 and the taxes are $3792/year and another home that is not under Act 319 and taxes are $13,390/year.

271 Greenbelt Dr. Parkesburg, PA 19365  Currently on the market for $599,000 and the yearly taxes are $3792 because it has over 16 acres and is under Act 319.  With 20% down loan at 3.75% and $1500 homeowner’s insurance here is the estimated monthly payment:

1341 Pikeland Rd. Chester Springs, PA 19425  Currently on the market for $599,900 and the yearly taxes are $13,390 because it is only 0.64 acres and not under Act 319.  With 20% down loan at 3.75% and $1500 homeowner’s insurance here is the est. monthly payment:

That is a difference of $847/mo difference for the same priced home.  Imagine if you had a budget of $3500/mo and the taxes were under $4000/year.  Instead of $599,000 house you could now afford a $828,000 house.
