WQED TV Explores Increase for Downtown Pittsburgh Living

We have many clients currently living or interested in moving to Downtown Pittsburgh.  WQED TV in Pittsburgh recently asked me to participate with a feature story about affordable downtown Pittsburgh living. Pittsburgh has often been named the nation's most livable city, but would you ever consider living downtown?
Downtown Pittsburgh is the midst of another major transformation and for the first time ever housing, new lofts and condos are a key part of the plans.  WQED's Tonia Caruso, explores this growing real estate trend, introduces people people who live Downtown and shows the places they call home. From the practical to the posh, you might be surprised at what's available and what it means to the future of Pittsburgh. 
If you are considering selling or buying a downtown Pittsburgh condo or loft contact us today to explore options.  You will be surprised at how affordable downtown Piitsburgh can be and with incentives like the LERTA tax abatement with a savings of over $6,000 a year for 10 years your dollars go even farther!  LERTA Enhanced  LERTA is an acronym for Local Economic Revitalization Tax Act. Purchasing at 941 provides buyers with a unique and powerful incentive. Buyers receive a 10 year abatement of up to $250,000 on the improved assessed value of their property as applied to their city and school taxes. The county also offers an additional 3 year abatement on the first $86,750 of assessed value.

If eligible for the maximum amount, a buyer would receive a reduction of $6,180 on their city and school taxes per year, for 10 years, plus the additional county amount. It is a savings of over $60K during the life of the tax abatement.

Please contact us today, we would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program, just contact us.  412-302-2645, liz@pittsburghhomesite.com, www.Pittsburghhomesite.com.
