As everyone knows, money is tight. Buying a house now-a-days is hard. With how high unemployment is and all that fun stuff it’s nearly impossible for some.
Number 5. Tulsa, OK
Number 4. Oklahoma, OK
Number 3. Utica, NY
Number 2. PITTSBURGH, PA!!!!
Yes our great city is the number 2 place to buy a house right now according to Yahoo and real estate website, Zillow.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen Pittsburgh ranked among the top of things listed in Yahoo. Now I normally take what they have to say with a grain of salt; however, I think they nearly nailed it here. I personally think the ‘Burgh should be number. 1. But I am biased. I love the city. For it not being enormous, there are a lot of things to do whether you’re a kid or an adult.
