I just wanted to come back and update everyone on the situation. I'm ready to give up. That's the update.

This should sum it up for you. Do not rent from Mozart. Do no rent from Lobos. Do not rent any of the places on Fifth Avenue. Do not rent anything in Oakland. Do not rent anything in Regent Square from a real estate company. Just buy a house or move out of Pittsburgh and avoid these scumlords, because that's what the vast majority of landlords in this city are.

Good luck!

This is why Craigslist sucks. This "Jenna" person at Waldorf Park spams it all day and night with absurd posts about how wonderful North Hills is with views, balconies, and close to everything, etc. Seriously if you want a good time with your friends, just search "Jenna" in the housing section of Craigslist and laugh your asses off. You don't even need to get drunk or high. The pictures alone are enough to make your drink spew out of your nose.

Craigslist needs a better way to block shit like this. These posts are all from one day! Lord help us.

I've been renting in Oakland for a few years now, and I've never had a bad experience, because I did a lot of research first. Lots of companies AND individuals are jerks and terrible landlords.

Sterling Reality is expensive, but they are amazing. My toilet seat broke, and they fixed it in a matter of days. When it was something more urgent, they fixed it immediately. I'd rent from them again in a heartbeat, if I could afford it.

Mozart is also ok, but I can imagine that they could be a hassle if you're not a model tenant or are expecting something fancy. But my place always had heat and hot water, and I never had any pests or infestations, which is more than I can say for a LOT of places in Oakland.

Stay away from Lobos and Trends. Just... don't. I was showed a Lobos apt that had mushrooms growing in the closet, and when I pointed them out, the lady just shrugged, like, "they're only mushrooms." Lady, that's a thing you should be concerned about!

As another poster said, check landorslum. It'll help you eliminate some of the terrible places and people.

I've heard not so great things about Mozart.  I'd agree with most people about finding an individual to rent from rather than a company.  Also, if you've got the money, a lot of times it can be cheaper monthly to own in this area rather than rent.  Not always, but a lot of times.  Extra tip:  stay away from Craigslist.  Very poor scam vs. actual listing ratios.  I'd find a neighborhood I liked and drive around looking for "For Rent" signs.

Do not rent from a guy named Ted Kaczorowski.  Slumlord.  Have heard many complaints of him.  Also, saw a few of the properties.  Bad shape.  The renters were told he was going to fix issues, but never did.  Rented out the place dirty.  Also kept deposits to fix the issues that the renters were asking him to fix in the first place.  He is a scam and you will have a horrilbe time.  Just a warning.
