Ok, now I've started to look at houses in Northside. I really like the vibe of that neighborhood. Any advice on the better areas of Northside to be looking at (or to avoid)??? I know sometimes it comes down to the actual street you are looking at and... I'm just not familiar. thx!

Northside is one of Cincinnati's secret gems. Also consider College Hill and Clifton.

I highly recommend. Northside is on the way up and you can still get homes on the cheap

sweet. Yeah I was looking at some on chase and around that area. I think I prefer Northside to some of the areas I was looking at on the east side of cincy, seems there is more diversity and seems more liberal and cool things to do there. being a photographer, I've heard artsy-types hangout there, too. I'm still looking at the east side but am very interested in Northside maybe most of all.

the more info I have the better because again I'm not familiar.

Over the Rhine would be a good place to look as well (around 12th)

Yeah, I am needing something with a garage though, and OTR doesn't have a lot of places that have that (like I need my own garage, not a parking garage in general). Also not looking to buy a condo as well. I have a dog, so would also like a (very small!) yard.

Northside will fit what you're looking for - I have family that live there. Just pay attention to which block you live in, as the personality of the neighborhood (and likelihood of crime) changes quickly. All in all I found it to be a quirky place, and relatively safe. But, I would not feel comfortable walking my dog at midnight on many of the streets. Go drive the area and hang out in the local establishments and see what you think of the street life of certain streets before you commit to them. Good luck - I'm sure you'll find something there - its a very diverse neighborhood!

Default Northside

Along with Northside, College Hill, you may want to consider Pleasant Ridge for affordable housing with garages.
