Adventures in Apartment Hunting

 I am currently searching for an apartment. It's hard work.

One thing I've noticed is that every single apartment is filled with "professionals," or at least that's what the landlord always says. There sure are a lot of professionals in Pittsburgh. Of course I prefer degenerates...

Today I actually saw a great apartment. It was in Friendship. It was huge, and not too expensive. I got really excited. Then, just by chance, I saw the name of the management company on a sign before I left. I looked them up on Good idea. The reviews are horrific. The phrases "slum lord" and "lawyer" are used far too often. You should really take a look at all of them yourself, but I found this phrase to be both representative and humorous:

"I literally cry at least once a month because of how awful it is to live under Lobos."



  1. Hey,

    i am moving out of Pittsburgh soon. My appartment is HUGE, its in Edgewood, so rent is much cheaper than Shadyside. Its 6 minute walk to east busway to get to shadyside/downtown/oakland and a block from an 61A stop to Sq. Hill. Feel free to email me for details and such. anna.zatsman at gmail

  2. Haha, I hear Lobos avoids using their name in apartment ads because they've got such a bad reputation.

  3. Fact!

    Yes, actually Lobos was mentioned nowhere in the craiglist add that I saw. Apparently their old ads also had a lot of corny marketing phrases (e.g., "Garden so large, a goat could live here.").

  4. Lobos management!!!! Don't even think about it! We cried a lot too.

  5. Oh! I didn't realize you were living there! Yeah, their reviews are definitely pretty bad!

  6. Hahaha, that's a unique pet policy they have. :)

  7. Yes they have numerous properties. I was at Baum Boulevard. A really run down old building.
