Horsham Recognized for Safest Cities in Pennsylvania, Top 10 Most Affordable Markets for Families, & Best Cities in Pennsylvania for Millennials

 

Horsham Township recently received three highly sought after recognitions: One of the Safest Cities in Pennsylvania, Top 10 Most Affordable Markets for Families, and Best Cities in Pennsylvania for Millennials. Ms. Deborah Tustin, Council President stated, “I am excited to share these three recognitions with Horsham residents, and with those who are looking to Horsham as a possible place for their home and/or business.”


Horsham Township was recognized in 2016 as one of the safest cities to live and has been recognized again for the same in 2017. The study collected data on a variety of elements that factor into the safety and well-being of citizens. Cities that made the top of their state’s list had the lowest crime risk score. Out of thousands of cities and towns in Pennsylvania, Horsham ranked 19.


Realtor Magazine recognized Horsham as one of the Top 10 Most Affordable Markets for Families. The study explained that most families are in search of affordable homes and high ranking schools.  Realtor Magazine studied all areas in the United States, on the search for affordable homes with stellar school districts. After two years of their study they concluded that Horsham, PA far exceeded the requirements to make the Top 10 list.


Horsham Township was listed as one of the Best Cities in Pennsylvania for Millennials.  Horsham Township made the list after a study was conducted of over a 1,000 cities in Pennsylvania. The study included cost of living, crime score, transportation cost, income score, age score, and unemployment score.  Millennial Personal Finance wrote that “this study was performed to assist millennials in finding the perfect cities to buy their first home.”


Mr. William Whiteside, Councilman, stated that “It is exciting to see Horsham continuously recognized! I believe that the future for Horsham is very bright and the redevelopment of the former Willow Grove Naval Air Station will only increase the number of recognitions Horsham will receive.”  Mr. Whiteside also stated “there are many cities that could have been recognized but it is a true honor for resources like Realtor Magazine to recognize Horsham in their published documents.”
