In a recent article, Time magazine states a Bloomberg report showing that a large number of first-time buyers are millennials making up half or more of home purchasers in U.S. cities. The same article names Pittsburgh as the fourth most millennial-friendly city in the U.S. Pittsburgh’s growth the last several years in the tech sector has played a major role. Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, two local universities have been providing technology talent to companies such as Google & Uber. In turn, the economic growth has been noticeable and buyers have taken notice of the affordability of home ownership in Pittsburgh. Affordability, job growth, culture, parks, a vibrant art scene, strong public schools and excellent medical care are several factors that have made Pittsburgh a top choice for millennials and first-time homebuyers.

International Day of Happiness + First Day of Spring = Great Day!

The first day of spring always makes me happy. This year, the first day of Spring also happens to be the International Day of Happiness. The perfect combination! Many of us have had brutal winters this year and in Pittsburgh, we have had way too many single digit temperatures and -0 days.  Even though we had a little blast of snow today, it’s the first day of spring which means summer is right around the corner-and THAT makes me extra happy. According to Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, happiness leads to greater levels of success. I recently attended one of his lectures and it was fascinating to listen to the statistics from studies that he has done which illustrate how our lives improve as we become more positive. I’ve attached a couple of pictures that make me happy whenever I see them. You can bet there will be a picture of the beach included!
