Pittsburgh Convention CenterHere is to Starting the New Year Off Right! Pittsburgh is one of the 5 markets expected to fare best in 2010 according to Moodys.

They predict home prices to appreciate by .89% this year, not a big jump but way better than a decrease and much better than most of the rest of the country.

One factor that is cited as a reason we are doing well is that prices basically stayed in sync with household income. Another mentioned is that we have managed to maintain a stable economy through the downturn.
