Clifton Park is a popular Capital District town located south of Saratoga Springs and north of Albany. Its southernmost location in Saratoga County provides commuters with easy access to nearby employment opportunities, both in the County as well as in the Albany/Schenectady/Troy area, yet residents enjoy an environment that reflects the suburban appeal of the town’s many neighborhoods and hamlets.
Capital District residents often think of Clifton Park as a popular place to shop and dine, and the Exit 9 area offers a wide variety of familiar retail and restaurant chains. For many, this adds to the area’s appeal as everything you could possibly need can usually be found just a short drive away.
And, if easy access to metropolitan areas, work, dining and shopping isn’t enough to entice homeowners, the town’s schools generally receive high marks. The Shenendehowa Central School District boasts a graduation rate of 91%, above many other districts in the surrounding area.
It should be no surprise that while housing demand has fallen overall, finding the Clifton Park home of your dreams – at the price you want – can sometimes still prove challenging. As of July 2014, Zillow shows the median price of homes currently listed in the area is $315,000, with a median list price per square foot of $155. Most are single family homes, 54.6% of which are between 1800 and 3600 sq. ft.
