Whether you want to save some money or drop some $$$ on an apartment, there are plenty of options this month in Pittsburgh.
In this monthly installment aimed at making apartment hunting suck less, we search for: Walkable neighborhoods, public transit access and character (no plain cookie-cutter apartments).
Here are seven Pittsburgh apartments worth your time (and money) right now. Get ’em while they’re hot (or while the listings are still up) — and check out last month’s guide, where a few options are still available.
1 bedroom, $849 per month
A recent renovation left no detail untouched, with a bright white kitchen, updated appliances, and a patterned black-and-white tile floor in the bathroom. The square-footage here is only 650, though, so it’s probably a good fit for just one.

1 bedroom, $999 per month
If you’ve ever dreamed of having a spiral staircase in your home, you can do it — for under $1,000 per month. This apartment is situated on the East Liberty-Garfield border, walking distance from the shops on Penn Avenue.
Other perks: It’s near the bus line, and it’s recently updated, including swanky Carrara marble floors in bathroom.
2 bedroom, $1,195 per month
Location is key here. This 1900-era building is situated on Liberty Avenue in the midst of shops and restaurants and is right on the bus line.
Design tip from us to you: If you live here, you’re gonna want to get a rug for the living room floor to hide how much the cabinet wood and floor wood differ in color.
