There is an advertisement up at the Pittsburgh International Airport that compares the western Pennsylvania city favorably to other U.S. cities in terms of housing costs.
“Pittsburgh is one of America’s most affordable metro housing markets—meaning lower living costs and higher quality of life,” reads copy next to a chart with the median prices for three-bedroom homes in different cities. Guess which city is the priciest on the chart?
The sign is courtesy of a portal called Pittsburgh Today, which compiles information on the the Steel City and its metro region. The entity is funded by Pittsburgh companies and philanthropies, meaning it wants people to consider moving there.
