Nestled snugly among the scenic mountains and rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania lies one of this country's most unique, "Most Livable" cities. Many first-time visitors coming from Pittsburgh International Airport are surprised and thrilled by the breathtaking skyline that suddenly appears as they drive through the Fort Pitt Tunnels and are confronted with Pittsburgh's spectacular Golden Triangle. For those unfamiliar with the modern Pittsburgh, that is the first of many surprises they experience as they get to know Pittsburgh.

Unlike the smoky, industrial city they expect, Pittsburgh today is a bright, clean, modern city of skyscrapers and parks, bustling with business and technology, yet warmed by friendliness. It is a city shaped by a solid economic foundation and a population dedicated to the traditional values of honesty, courtesy, education and hard work... which combine to make Pittsburgh an excellent place to raise a family.

Pittsburgh's professional sports teams are well known - the Pittsburgh Steelers, the first team to win six Super Bowls; the Pittsburgh Pirates, who captured the National League East Division Title in 1990 and 1991; and the Pittsburgh Penguins, three-time Stanley Cup Champions.

Pittsburgh is also the home of an internationally respected symphony orchestra, a major opera troupe, a professional ballet company, one of the nation's top university drama programs and more than 100 major theater productions each year.

For those who enjoy the active life, Pittsburgh offers a wealth of choices, with amateur softball, basketball, volleyball and soccer leagues, literally hundreds of tennis courts, jogging and biking trails and more than 50 golf courses. And with its rivers, forests, streams, and lakes, it is a haven for fishing, boating and hunting enthusiasts. Pittsburgh also offers a full schedule of summer festivals, events, regattas and even its own fleet of paddle wheelers.

Because of its rich history and diversity of neighborhoods, the Pittsburgh area offers a wide variety of architectural and living styles. Constructed during the era when building meant pride in craftsmanship, many older Pittsburgh homes feature generous rooms, hardwood floors, stately architecture and ornate or stone fireplaces. Suburban communities offer a broad range of contemporary designs and lifestyles. And while homes in the area traditionally hold their value, Pittsburgh's housing prices are well below the national average.


At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices The Preferred Realty – Western Pennsylvania's Preferred Realty – we understand that moving your family and getting settled in a new city involves a lot of decisions and a lot of time.
