Pittsburgh Named Among 10 Best Cities for Home Buyers

Have you visited our Pittsburgh Model Home Center yet? Lots of families are discovering that this is the perfect time – and Pittsburgh is the ideal place – to build a new home. And apparently, the secret is out.

According to Movoto, Pittsburgh is one of the Top 10 Best Cities in the U.S. for Home Buyers. Here are just a few reasons why Pittsburgh, PA is so buyer-friendly.


According the article, Pittsburgh has one of the best Median Income to Median Home Price ratios in the U.S., and that means homeownership is more affordable.  In fact, according to a recent MSN Real Estate article Pittsburgh residents enjoy an annual income that’s above the national average. Pittsburgh also has a growing base of colleges, hospitals, and other health-care related companies to fuel job growth. In fact, Forbes recently named Pittsburgh as one of the top 50 Best Places for Business and Careers. A more stable job market means better affordable home ownership for more families.

At Wayne Homes, we’re making owning a custom home in Pittsburgh even more affordable with 40 floor plans to choose from starting as low as $117,500. See all custom home floor plans >

Quality of Life

Beyond affordability, the Movoto article also cited several quality of life indicators that make home ownership more attractive in Pittsburgh. For example, several areas in Pittsburgh feature higher quality schools. Pittsburgh was even recently named America’s Smartest City. Pittsburgh’s quality of life has earned the Steel City past honors including Most Liveable City in the U.S., outranking Los Angeles, New York, and Honolulu.
