Yes, I've seen a bunch of homes under $600k in Wyoming and Clifton. I really want to spend under $400k but it looks like I might have to stretch my budget. Here's what I've seen for sale in my price range. I don't know much about which areas of Wyoming are better than others. Anyone recommend one of these homes over the other - maybe because better location in the area?

If you're willing to drive 25 minutes and more, then Wyoming is an option. My previous comment, excluding Wyoming, was based on your original statement that you preferred "to be less than 20 minutes from work."

Because I suggested it. He's having a feud with me, unfortunately. Personal politics

ohioscholar - I stand by my original opinion that a commute from Wyoming to UC (or vice versa) is not feasible in less than 20 minutes. However, if you're willing to involve more travel time, then Wyoming's an option. This opinion has nothing to do with SWOH, but is rather my attempt to answer your question honestly without bias for any neighborhood. Good luck.

Thanks for the feedback. I thought Wyoming was the only nice area outside Cincinnati city limits that would be around 20-25 minutes. Everything else looks like at least 30 minutes, like Amberley, Blue Ash, Sycamore seem too far out.

I think Maderia would be another place to look at outside of the City. The commute would probably be right at 20 minutes.

Madiera seems to be at least 25 minute commute when I map it and it seems like I would have to take I-71 and I'm worried relying on a highway might increase my commute time especially during rush hour. With Wyoming, it appears I could take the back roads and still be at work at UC in 25 minutes.

The only other place I can think of that has not been mentioned is Fort Thomas, KY. Great schools, safe, walkable and easy commute.

About the list you posted of houses for sale in Wyoming --

None of those raises a red flag. However, they all have pros and cons, depending on your living preferences. I don't have time right now to comment on them all, but things to keep in mind about Wyoming:

-East of Springfield Pike is generally flat, mostly older homes, sidewalks (or low traffic streets), very walkable. The middle school, high school, and one primary school are on this side of town. At the north end of town is a bike/hike path to the Recreation Center. The eastern border of Wyoming is a very active railroad track, and train horns blow regularly day and night. Some people have no problem with this; others can't live with it.

-West of Springfield Pike is "the Hill"; many areas are walkable (either sidewalks or low-traffic), but you have to get up that hill. A few streets don't have sidewalks and are pretty busy (Compton, Mt. Pleasant); mix of older and mid-twentieth century houses.

-The far west part of Wyoming, areas with "Western" names, have much newer housing stock, mostly late twentieth century. From that side of Wyoming, Winton Road is a good, non-interstate way to get to the University.

Honestly, like much of Cincinnati, things vary block by block, and even in the same block there can be a very diverse mix of housing types.

@roll2home, thanks for the feedback. That was some good intel on the areas in Wyoming. I love the older homes in Wyoming and that it has a walkable community feel to it. I've lived in the Burbs before and you usually lose that. Wyoming feels a bit like a suburb but has places to walk to.
