Great comments and interesting thread, thanks thatswanlady!

I personally would think Anderson would hold its value because of its affluent neighbors in Maderia, Indian Hill, and eastern Cincinnati. But then again I could be wrong. It's hard to say, especially with Cincy. Other cities (like Dayton, Columbus, or Louisville, for instance) are more cut and dry.

And yes, it is a vote of confidence on my end -- we deliberated for a long time about whether to buy in Anderson. We loved the house and area, but I kept seeing hints on this board about the imminent decline of Anderson -- which was confusing since it didn't at all line up with what I was seeing day-after-day, but I'm from a city where areas decline rapidly and obviously, so it's a little different.

I obviously can't speak for all of Anderson, but from what I see where I live (and in the parts I go to frequently), I see a lot of well-kept homes, kids playing outside, and lots of nice things that would seem to indicate a stable area. Sure, there are homes here and there that have seen better days, but I would venture to guess that you'll find this in any part of town except perhaps for the extremely wealthy areas.

Anderson is convenient for us -- I work downtown and my husband works up near Loveland. I can, however, see how Anderson is not convenient to other areas because of a lack of easy access to 71/75 -- but it works for us. I am able to ride the bus to work, something I couldn't reasonably (or safely) do in my hometown, and traffic is never really a huge issue for either of our commutes.

Long-term, who knows? I'm no psychic. I just try to keep myself as informed as possible, and if the time ever comes that we need to start discussing a new plan, then that's what we'll do.
Even in the very best neighborhood it is a crap shoot. All it takes is one disruptive problem-neighbor to make everyone miserable. (Been there, done that). To me that is one of the biggest risks in buying a house. Always worth spending a little time checking out your prospective neighbors. Sounds a little nosy but its better to find out now rather than after you have signed off at your closing!

Sounds like you've closed on your house and you like your area, so congratulations.

Maderia is not close to Anderson Twp.

I grew up in Madeira, and I always thought we were pretty close to Anderson. Cut up through Indian Hill on Miami Ave down to Wooster Pike, east to Newtown Rd, south across it through Newtown and up the hill and you are in Anderson. Sure we weren't neighbors but I always felt it was not far.

How would Madeira or Indian hill effect Values of Anderson Twp at all? It does not effect Silverton or Deer Park values which boarders it directly.

Indian Hill definitely affects Madeira values. The few newer streets on the boarder of Madeira which have Indian Hill size homes would have never been built except for Indian Hill. They are in Madeira but they feel like Indian Hill.

It is somethat of a stretch to say Silverton and Deer Park border Madeira directly. Silverton has a very small border with Madeira primarily along Stewart Rd. Deer Park has virtually no border with Madeira as Sycamore Twp. is in between.

You have to look at the age of both Silverton and Deer Park in addition to the type of housing which is there. They are both much older than Madeira, Madeira was just fields when they were built. The lot sizes, home sizes, everything establishes a limit which is not going to be exceeded.

I didn't say Madeira affects values in Anderson Twp, as I don't believe it does. I was just commenting Anderson Twp. felt very similar to where I grew up in Madeira.

Kjbrill just did a far better job explaining why it works than I could.

My basis was it is the same general "group". Like if you were to associate Anderson with other suburbs, the most positive examples would be the ones I listed. And given Anderson's location it is not much of a stretch. Similar to grouping Mason, West Chester, Kings, Loveland, and Sycamore, for instance, even though OH 4 in Liberty Twp / West Chester is very far away from Wards Corner in Loveland.

Here is my grouping for the Northern suburbs.

Loveland, Landen (better recognized than Kings), Mason, Deerfield Township, West Chester and Liberty Townships. What distinguishes all of them is good schools. Deerfield Township is either in the Kings or the Mason district, can't knock either one.

They just naturally fit together due to all of the similarities. Depending on size and cost of house, I can see a family having an enjoyable existence in any of them. And note I said family, as they all are solidly family oriented.

And Sycamore (Blue Ash, Montgomery, Symmes Twp.) certainly fits the mold. But I put them in a class by themselves. For one thing they are predominantly in a separate county. They offer a closer commute to the City which should attract a number of people. And to me they are no more northern than Sharonville.

I used to live in Anderson and never considered Madeira or Indian Hill as neighbors. The neighbors are Mt. Washington, Mt. Carmel, and Withamsville.

This has been a very informative thread and I thought I'd bring it forward because I recently looked at homes in the Anderson/Mt Washington areas.

I'd appreciate any newer input people have about the condition of homes and neighborhoods, general living, schools, crime, etc. in both areas since this thread was active in 2013/2014. Thanks!
