Wheeling is an old city and will be hard to find a modern rental there. Also a lot of the apartments are catering to the oil and gas workers so prices are increasing. But there will be more inventory there since it's the largest city in the greater panhandle region. Saint Clairsville, OH has some nice rentals, but it is a little further out from Pittsburgh. Glen Dale, WV is a nice and older suburb south of Wheeling, but it puts you out a little further from Pittsburgh as well.

The area between Wheeling and Washington is rather rural. West Alexander and Claysville are along Interstate 70 and have old housing stock too with very few rentals. The few rentals that are available tend to be word of mouth. Triadelphia, which is east of Wheeling and about 5 miles from the PA border, may be worth looking at. Washington itself has some, but they tend to be older and usually are old duplexes or houses converted into apartments.

This area very different from the Triangle region of North Carolina. The housing stock is older and many landlords do not accept pets. A cousin of mine moved down there from Crafton over a decade ago and when she visits, she comments on how old everything is in the Pittsburgh region. Also the northern panhandle of WV has one of the highest median ages in the United States. The bordering PA counties are a little younger, but still has a higher median age than the Triangle area. But the city of Pittsburgh has a younger vibe due to the presence of several universities.
