1 bedroom, $750 per month
Along a tree-lined street, this cozy apartment features hardwood floors throughout and central A/C. But the real show-stopper is outside. You’ll get access to a private patio with plants, a grill, and plenty of space to hang out during warm weather.
The apartment is steps from a bus stop or a 15-minute walk to the Allegheny T Station.

A 10-minute walk from the West Busway stop, this large one-bedroom in Crafton is worth a look. They say bathrooms and kitchens sell apartments, and both are top-notch here. No, you’re not going to find stainless steel appliances, but you will find newer appliances in the kitchen and plenty of workspace. Meanwhile, the well-kept bathroom exudes vintage charm with black-and-white tile.
A special shout-out goes to the apartment’s pastel stained glass window.
1 bedroom, $825 per month
While it is at the far end of Lawrenceville, there are some pros about this one-bedroom’s location. First of all, it’s walking distance to a grocery store (hi, Shop ‘n Save). Secondly, it’s steps from Hop Farm Brewing Company. Or if that’s not your speed, it’s basically next to a CrossFit gym.
Inside, you’ve got laminate floors throughout, solid oak cabinets, and detailed woodworking.
2 bedrooms, $845 per month
Stainless steel appliances? Check. Large main bedroom? Got it. Close to public transit? One block away from the T.
It’s also walking distance to a supermarket, and, if you’re not feeling like cooking, Las Palmas is next to the grocery store.
1 bedroom, $895 per month
This palace of Scandinavian design is on the market in all its spartan, clean-lined glory. Painted in all white with gray flooring and a touch of orange, the space feels even larger than it is. Bonus points: There’s a clawfoot tub in the bathroom.
2 bedrooms, $995 per month
Attention pet owners: This animal friendly two-bedroom is worth checking out. There’s tile flooring in the kitchen and hardwoods in the living spaces, perfect to help keep down on pet dander and clean-up. There’s also a back deck that’s just waiting for summer.
Location-wise, this place is situated just a three-minute walk from Black Forge Coffee House and bus stops on Arlington Avenue.

Coming in at just under $1,000, this 2-bedroom house in Troy Hill has been recently updated with new flooring and fresh paint. While the living space is plenty nice, the third-floor bonus rooms are the stars of the home with their pitched roofs and dark beams.
All the natural light, so your selfies are going to look amazing.COURTESY OF LOBOS MANAGEMENT GROUP
3 bedrooms, $1,149 per month
This first-floor duplex is all about the natural light, meaning your selfies are going to look amazing here. Find large windows in every room — even the kitchen and bathroom. Also look for wood floors, a cute tile backsplash in the kitchen, and stonework.
All that, plus it’s a five-minute walk to Blue Slide Playground and Frick Park.
