Pittsburgh's rents are on the rise, though, as we've now been "discovered" on the national radar, so I'd suspect Cincinnati, Cleveland, St. Louis, and Buffalo all stand a shot of being the next "up-and-comer".
That's one of my favorite things about the burgh. I was a bit nostalgic the other day and I just looked at rent prices now. The days of it being a bargain seem to be fading away. Still not bad though. About the same as some places that get mentioned as "real" cities more often.
