Pittsburgh’s “most livable city” label now carries more weight.
A CNN Money report listed the 27 largest U.S. cities and ranked Pittsburgh as the most affordable place for buying a home.
According to research conducted by HSH.com, the median price for a home in Pittsburgh is $135,000. Compare that to the median price of $233,200 in Baltimore. In Pittsburgh, someone who earns just under $32,000 could theoretically afford that $135,000 home. In Baltimore, an income of $50,000 is needed to purchase a home at the median value in that city.
