Top 9 Reasons to Live in York

  • Renter's Paradise! With 57% of the housing units being renter occupied, York is used to the rental lifestyle. On top of that, the average rental is only $525 per month, making York great for those looking for a rent to own home on a tight budget - try looking in the City Center and East Market Street neighborhoods.
  • Home to performing arts and more! The Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center and the Strand Studio have brought international music and comedy acts to the city, while the Capitol Theatre screens rare, international and independent films on a regular basis.
  • Bucking the trend! While the national housing market has risen, the housing market in York has actually declined over time, dropping 4.5% since the market has indicated a national recovery. This has made York a great market for real estate investment or folks looking for rent to own homes, especially in the Violet Hill and Grantley neighborhoods.

Part of the Susquehanna Ale Trail, new brewers such as Liquid Hero and Mudhook Brewing Company are helping to propel the Susquehanna Valley to one of the most innovative areas in the United States for craft beer.
