The market remains one of the strongest real estate markets in the country, with population and employment growth being among the top factors that contribute to its success [2].

What makes Pittsburgh such a desirable destination for real estate buyers and investors? For starters, the city is home to a thriving economy, with a strong job market and a highly educated workforce. Additionally, Pittsburgh has a rich cultural heritage and a strong sense of community, making it a great place to live, work, and raise a family.

In conclusion, the Pittsburgh real estate market has been growing steadily over the last 20 years and shows no signs of slowing down.
