The Keystone State

Pennsylvania's housing market has seen incredible growth over the past several years, an accelerating trend some analysts even cautioned was too rapid to be sustainable.

From April to June, all but one suburban county in the region experienced a rise in property values over the previous year. Several zip codes had increases of more than 50 percent in median home prices. Municipalities that just last year had only a handful of sales nearly doubled their numbers this spring and early summer, and one almost tripled them. The region as a whole recorded 15,636 sales in the three-month second quarter, the most on record in more than a dozen years.
