"Great for investors & first-time homebuyers"

The Pittsburgh neighborhood is located just minutes away from Interstate 20, and is a little less than 3 miles from Downtown Atlanta. It is yet another area that is going through gentrification. So, there is an odd mixture of vacant homes and newly renovated rehab houses all conglomerated together. As with similar areas, this neighborhood is great for investors and young first-time homebuyers who are looking to take advantage of a good deal.
There are many larger historic homes in Pittsburgh. Although the houses do have a lot of potential, many of them also require a lot of work. Housing prices are sometimes as low as $15,000, and can get as high as $400,000. In recent years, this has caused property taxes to increase dramatically, which has drove out many of the poorer residents.

Currently, there are several initiates in place to help rebuild this area. The Pittsburgh Community Improvement Association (PCIA) and the Sustainable Neighborhood Development Strategies, Inc. are just a few. These programs strategically work at redeveloping the area to bring in more residents, and well as business owners.
Crime has declined a bit due to the reconstruction, but some parts are still a little rough. Honestly, there is not much to do in Pittsburgh. Fear not, if you enjoy hanging out, it is only about 14 minutes away from Midtown, and about 20 minutes away from Buckhead. This isn’t too bad of a drive… or, if you feel up to it, you can easily access public transportation.
