Location, location, location. Whether you’re new to real estate or a seasoned veteran, you probably know that a great location should be the number one consideration when selecting your new home. Things like school district, proximity to recreation and nature, scenic views and access to commuter routes can make or break the value of your home. That's why we have such high standards for the land we choose to turn into a Charter Neighborhood.

At Charter, we’re big champions of natural playgrounds, with green spaces and slides, amphitheaters, and secret nooks. Kids love them – and unlike modular playgrounds, they don’t get bored of them. Ours are called TerraPark®, and we build them into our neighborhoods to help foster a love of nature and imaginative play.

Buying into a new neighborhood is always exciting. New home construction alleviates the worry of inheriting someone else’s headaches. And it offers one of the greatest luxuries in life. To buy new means enjoying freshly laid hardwoods; granite counters chosen by you; tasteful, contemporary cabinetry; and the latest and greatest systems and technology.

There’s nothing better than seeing a friendly face at your favorite small business for a cup of coffee, to grab a beer after witnessing one too many black Friday fist fights, pick up a thoughtful gift for a friend, or to sweat off some post-Thanksgiving pounds. So we’re going to make it easy for you to enjoy your favorite shops or find some new gems you haven’t visited yet.

The first time Rob Bowman, President of Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, walked the Hastings site in Pittsburgh’s South Hills, he knew Charter Homes was the only one who could bring out the magic of the land. Nestled in a bend on Chartiers Creek, he could look through the century old trees and see nothing but wooded hillsides all around, which are all part of more than 600 acres of township parkland.

Why Pittsburgh?

It’s an exciting day here at Charter Homes & Neighborhoods. As you might have read in today’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, we announced this week our move into the Pittsburgh region with the release of our plans for Hastings, a new neighborhood we are creating in South Hills. It’s an amazing opportunity that will transform a former state hospital into a neighborhood complete with preserved spaces, gathering places, walking trails, century-old trees, and timeless architecture.
