Pittsburgh is the latest “IT” city for 2017

Pittsburgh has long been loved by its die hard natives and residents, but the word is out about the beloved Steel City! Sports, employment, universities, and the affordability of living are drawing people from near and far. Maronda Homes, a family owned Pittsburgh based home builder, is committed to providing affordable, luxury new homes to old and new Pittsburghers throughout the region.

Why Pittsburgh?

Let’s start with sports!  Not just one or two, but three top teams in different sports: Steelers. Pens. Buccos. Hence,Pittsburgh natives don’t know the meaning of off-season. The Steel City bleeds black and gold and, even if you’re not a sports fan when you move to the Burgh, you’ll likely become one pretty quickly.

When looking for a top-notch education, Pittsburgh is your destination. The city boasts such highly rated universities as Carnegie Mellon University. CMU earned the 23rd spot on U.S. News & World Report’s National Universities Rankings list in 2016. The University of Pittsburgh came in at 66 on the same list. In addition, Point Park University, Chatham University, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and Robert Morris University are also among the many public and private colleges and universities that call Pittsburgh home.

The ever growing job market in Pittsburgh is drawing people of all ages and industries. Pittsburgh secured the sixth spot for the best job markets in the U.S. in 2016, as determined by ZipRecruiter.com. The strongest employment sectors were identified as healthcare, insurance, and hospitality and restaurants. Furthermore, let’s not overlook the Tech field. Google has opened a headquarters in the Bakery Square district of the city because of the evolving tech companies and start-ups in the area. While Pittsburgh’s tech sector continues to grow, the selection of rising startups becomes more prevalent and diverse.

Why Maronda?
