I haven't lived in the Pittsburgh area for about 12 years (born and raised in Beaver County) so wanted to get some input.

I am highly considering taking a new job that will have us moving Mid July and me working in Downtown Pittsburgh. My parents and family still live in Beaver County and North Sewickley Township. With two young boys, my wife and I want to be within 20-30 minutes of my family and make my commute somewhat easy/short. We have lived in California, Atlanta & Dallas/Ft. Worth so traffic might not be too much of an issue.

Also wasn't to sure how the rental market was in the area. We are looking to rent for 3 months to a year until we have time to find a place. 3 to 4 bd, max $1500.

My wife is a stay at home mom and always has our boys involved in activities outside or at libraries, museums, etc. We also like the short drive, walking distance to shops, restaurants and nice parks are a great perk. Good/Great schools as well.

Being from the area first place that popped into my mind was Cranberry but I'm not sure if or how it has changed since I've been home last. Maybe Moon Township? Figured I'd get input.

Tough to keep it within 30 minutes of both North Sewickley Township and downtown, at least with rush hour traffic to downtown. Cranberry comes pretty close but you're fairly unlikely to find a $1500 rental there that's big enough. You might find a 3BR for that amount I guess, probably not single family but maybe a townhome. Rental SFHs are rare to begin with and when they do come up they'll mostly be more than that.
