Moving to Pittsburgh? Collier and South Fayette are a good bet!

Moving to Pittsburgh- Build a Paragon HomeIf you are choosing to build a new house in the Pittsburgh area, you might be considering neighborhoods based on how close they are to your relatives, job or your kids’ school. If you aren’t locked in on a particular area, South Fayette and Collier townships are a good bet to build in, for a number of reasons.

Room to Grow

Both South Fayette and Collier have realized robust housing growth in recent years, in large part because they have premium land. Half of each township is made up with all the shopping and dining along Washington Pike and the area transitions quickly to suburban and even a rural and woodsy in feel in some places, both communities give homeowners the opportunity to spread out and build on spacious, scenic lots. New home neighborhoods offer a sense of community, but let everyone enjoy some privacy.

Grade A Schools

Younger families continue to be drawn to both of these communities because of the success of South Fayette and Chartiers Valley school districts. Both districts have taken on building projects in recent years to both accommodate the growing number of students and incorporate new technology and innovations for students. The Pittsburgh Business Times ranked South Fayette at the top district in Western Pennsylvania in 2015, bumping Mt. Lebanon School District from the number one slot and both South Fayette and Chartiers Valley scored at the top of the recent PA state Keystone Exams.

Low Taxes

South Fayette and Collier townships rank on the low end of property taxes, both in the bottom third of millage rates among the more than 100 municipalities in Allegheny County. At the same time, new homes built in these communities hold their value.


At Allegheny County’s Western edge, Collier and South Fayette are within 15 miles of downtown Pittsburgh, and close to both Pittsburgh International Airport and work locations in Allegheny, Beaver and especially Southpointe, Washington County.

The popularity of South Fayette and Collier have resulted in stable communities that let you live close to or in a natural, park-like environment, with shopping and other businesses just a short drive away.

Upgraded trim carpentry and hardwoods serve as examples of the old world craftsmanship still found in Paragon’s new homes. Also included are: a three car garage, an 88 by 105 foot flat backyard, main-level laundry, and a study/flex room to adapt to your needs.

If you could see behind the walls, you would notice the type of solid framing that puts a premium on withstanding the test of time, plus insulation and other efficient features that exceed the ENERGYSTAR requirements. Our attention to detail is unmistakable, and lets you know that it’s a Paragon custom home.

Overall, Deerfield Ridge features luxurious, custom-built homes that range from $405,000 to over $900,000, and come with already-included options, for which other builders will charge extra.

Homes in Deerfield are uniquely designed for each client, and never look exactly the same as your neighbors’ homes.  You can use a home design suggested by the Paragon team, bring in your own plans or ideas to use as a starting point, or start fresh with their architects to design a home from the ground up.

Deerfield’s picturesque cul-de-sac offers incredible views of rolling hills surrounding the spacious lots, and is located only minutes from the new school buildings of South Fayette, one of Pittsburgh’s most-sought-after school districts.

Building with Paragon Homes is designed to be an easy and enjoyable experience that puts your needs first. We’ve put a lot of thought into mindfully creating a buyer-friendly process that provides a true custom home, while still being uncomplicated and cost-effective for our customers.

Paragon homeowners can make any custom changes to their home that you desire and may choose selections from any brand (not just the builder’s favorites,) all with the personalized attention to detail and customer service that only a builder of our size can provide.

Paragon clients are free to select from many banks and lenders to ensure that you get the best loan for your hard-earned money. This means that buyers can save $20,000 or more in closing costs … not to mention getting the best rate and the fact that most clients don’t need to sell their current home to begin construction.
