House Hunters Recap: A Family House in Pittsburgh

House Hunters Josh and Brynn are both from Pittsburgh, but currently live in Nashville. They met through a local radio station. Josh is a boxer and Brynn is a country singer. One day, Josh saw her picture on the radio station’s website, and then he called in to get information about her. Five months later, they were married. The couple has lived in Nashville for several years, but now they’re expecting their first child.

Thinking about their baby, they realized that he or she wouldn’t have family in Nashville. Therefore they decided to buy a second home in Pittsburgh to be closer to their extended families. They’ll live in Pittsburgh but travel often back to Nashville. They want to live in the Beaver County area, and they have a budget of $275,000, but Josh and Brynn are willing to go over for the right place.

Wish Lists

They want a three bedroom, two bathroom home that has enough space for their growing family.

His: Josh wants a ranch style home with 4-sided brick. With their careers and a new baby, he would prefer a move-in ready place. Josh also wants a big yard for their dogs, and a finished basement for himself. He also wants the bathroom to have a double vanity.

Hers: Brynn wants a two-story traditional home. She doesn’t mind a fixer upper, but it needs to have a flat lot. Brynn wants a big kitchen, big dining room, and a big master bedroom with a walk-in closet and large bathroom.

House #1, $190,000

House Hunters Recap: A Family House in Pittsburgh -1

This ranch, 4-sided brick house was built in 1965. It has three bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. It’s a fixer-upper with a very outdated, small kitchen. The home includes a formal dining room with large windows. It has a fireplace and a large living area that might work as the dining area.

The backyard is large and green. The bedrooms are small and would need some work. The biggest showstopper of this home is the finished basement, which could become a getaway spot for both parents.

House #2, $274,900

House Hunters Recap: A Family House in Pittsburgh -2

The home has a 4-sided brick and two stories. It has more of an industrial look, and it has been newly remodeled. The home is located in the heart of Beaver County, very close to downtown. It has three bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. It’s an open concept home with lots of exposed brick.

The kitchen is completely updated. The only draw back of this home is that it’s missing a yard, a dining room, and no master bathroom. However, it includes a finished kitchen.

House #3, $295,000

House Hunters Recap: A Family House in Pittsburgh -3

This is a light and bright home. It includes a dining room but it’s small. It has a new kitchen, but Brynn doesn’t love the design. The home has fairly large rooms and an already created nursery. The basement is unfinished and small.

The master bedroom is huge and includes a walk-in closet and a master bathroom. It also has an office space.

Decision Time: House #3 was over budget and needed work. However, it hit many of their important wish list items, including a large master and a nice backyard. House #2 was the ideal home, but the lack of backyard limited their dogs play space. It also wasn’t an ideal home to host family dinners. House #1 wasn’t a complete fixer upper but need work. However, it was very quant and fit their personalities.
