"Worldwide ERC, a relocation services trade group, studied the 50 largest metro areas in the nation and ranked them based on their housing market, economy, nearby colleges and universities, and environmental factors."



"Forbes ranked the city No. 1 among the top 100 for jobs, and CNNMoney.com lists Cincinnati among the top six places to buy a home."



"Because of our steady economy we keep popping up on these lists,” said Karen Schlosser, president of the Cincinnati Board of Realtors."




... Nice!

Not disputing Cincy's ranking, but any list that would include Youngstown in the top million places to relocate, probably needs to be re-examined.

Yeah, I question this statement too ...

Do you mind telling me what age group you're in and what types of things you're looking to do on as far as nightlife?

I'm married and even I have to tell myself enough is enough with the going out and partying and whatnot ... I can only take so much partying before it wears on me! lol

jstn, I'm not the world's biggest fan of "list" either, but I'm curious ... what part of the criteria that they used to come up with the statements above are you disagreeing with?

I don't have a problem with any of the criteria. Nor do I have a problem with Cincy ranking where it does. It's just that some of these cities on this list are so random (as is the case with almost all of these types lists) that it kind of takes away from the validity. It would be like making a most beautiful people list, only to see Tori Spelling listed a couple of notches away

I'm on the same page, it's just that I'm confused as to if you're questioning the criteria or methodology? What part are you in disagreement with?

I'm simply questioning some of the cities on the list. For instance, earlier I mentioned Youngtown. Don't know if you've ever been to Y'town, but it doesn't meet any of the criteria, yet made the list.

Let's be honest, when you think of relocation, does the Steel City really pop into your head first? Great city, but #1?

I just think of the cities that I know well, the list seems innaccurate.
