I just love posting good news about Pittsburgh and our real estate market. This time it's about our commercial market. According to Moody's Investors Service Pittsburgh is the nation's top commercial real estate market, for the second straight year. Pittsburgh was judged on multi-family housing, Downtown office vacancies, and full and limited service hotels' occupancy rates. That's not the only good news, Kiplinger.com recently named Pittsburgh one of its six Safe Havens in Real Estate. Read the entire story in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. And if you are looking for a great commercial investment I have several properties available:   A Historic Redevelopment Opportunity in Allegheny West. 836 W.

With all the white stuff on the ground summer may seem like a long way off but the Carnegie Science Center is offering a special admission price on June 21st, the Summer Solstice, if you show up with a snowball. The special event will benefit the Science Center’s youth programs in the “STEM” areas: science, technology, engineering and math. When you bring your snowball you will be able to name your own price of admission with all proceeds going towards the program. So go out and scoop up some of that fluffy stuff in your yard and save it for summer. Buying or Selling a home in the Pittsburgh area?

The North Side is the term Pittsburghers use to collectively describe the 18 neighborhoods that wrap around the northern banks of the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers and climb up the adjacent hillsides. This area of Pittsburgh was at one time an independent community known as Allegheny City, established as such in 1840. Before its annexation to the City of Pittsburgh in 1907, Allegheny City grew with solid representations of the wealthy and the working class. Reflections of that economic diversity remain today, as do the traditions of those who settled here in its early days, including British, Scotch-Irish, German, Croatian, Czech, Serbian, Carpatho-Rusyns, and African-Americans. Although the North Side is comprised of many neighborhoods, several are designated as historic districts and stan...

If you are looking for a great value on a home in the city, consider a URA-sponsored house. If you are not familiar with the URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority), it is the City of Pittsburgh's economic development agency. Its goals are to create jobs, increase the city's tax base, and improve the vitality of businesses, neighborhoods, and the City's livability as a whole. One of their more popular programs is the Neighborhood Housing Program, which sponsors the construction or rehabilitation of single family homes and then supplies interest-free, deferred, second mortgage financing to qualified buyers. The homes are built in neighborhoods all around the city including the Northside, East Liberty, Lawrenceville and others. Many of these homes also offer 3-year or 10-year tax abatements f...

I got the opportunity to talk to a reporter from the Associated Press this week who was writing a story on Northeast home sales. She was interested in finding out what was going on in the Pittsburgh market and I was happy to oblige. As I told her, Pittsburgh has done very well compared to other areas of the country. One thing that seems to be driving our resilience is the low cost of living and low cost of homes. You can read a few of the stories, that feature a quote from me :-), at the links below.
