No. 1,590 MR Reports, an on-line newsletter for the mortgage origination and servicing industry, reports that Pittsburgh is the most affordable city in the United States for first time home buyers.

Is Archer Going to Be the New Cutch?

No. 1,539 He turned down Andrew’s number, at least for now, but he seems to be well on his way to winning the hearts of Pittsburgh.
