Rethinking the Historic Buildings in Squirrel Hill, PA

One feature you might recognize about Squirrel Hill is that it’s full of charming historic buildings. You may dream of living in one of these beautiful properties! The only downside is that historic homes often have hidden problems, including hazardous knob-and-tube wiring, poor insulation, and outdated climate control.

Marvista Rentals has set out to change the reality of living in a historic home. When we acquire a property, we don’t simply put it back on the market as-is. Instead, we go the extra mile, performing extensive renovations to prepare it for future residents. Many projects involve completely gutting the building, which consists of replacing piping and wiring, upgrading appliances and fixtures, and making other improvements.

Currently, Marvista Rentals manages nearly 100 properties, including studio apartments, 1- to 3-bedroom apartments, townhomes, duplexes, and single-family homes. We update each property with you in mind. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Improved safety: Each of our renovated rental units in Squirrel Hill meets all city building codes and egress requirements. We go above and beyond to ensure adequate fire safety by installing hard-wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire doors, and double-layer drywall on ceilings and in common areas.
  • Modern fixtures and finishes: Picture your historic Squirrel Hill apartment, complete with a modern kitchen, luxurious bathrooms, and gorgeous hardwood floors. These are just some of the modern amenities you can expect from our properties.
  • Enhanced comfort: We replace the windows, insulate the walls, and upgrade climate control systems before listing our properties for rent in Squirrel Hill.

With the upgrades we make, you can enjoy the charm of living in a historic building in Squirrel Hill without any of the inconvenience or safety issues often associated with older properties.

Centrally Located Landlords

Many big commercial apartment buildings in Pittsburgh are owned by managers who live elsewhere. What happens when you have an emergency maintenance request or you get locked out of your apartment? There’s no telling how long you’ll have to wait for services.

Things are different with Marvista Rentals. We are residents of Squirrel Hill ourselves, so you can rest assured we’re always nearby when you need help. We only rent in this neighborhood, creating a hyper-local focus that’s unheard of for most Pittsburgh apartments. This allows us to remain personally invested in your rental experience. When you rent from Marvista, you’re more than just a rent check to us—you’re our neighbors!
