I will be moving to the Cincinnati area for work and wanted to research the suburbs in the area. I'm looking to buy a house in the range of $150k to $200k and wanted to find a safe area with a 30 min (or so) commute to downtown Cincinnati. I think I'd give precedence to Northern Kentucky towns (lower taxes), but am open to all suggestions that fit my list. So far I've looked into West Chester, Mason, and Liberty Township in Ohio, and Florence, Independence, Hebron, and Union in Kentucky. Any advice on these or other suitable substitutes would be very much appreciated.
Thanks much!

Default Cincinnati area

Within Kentucky, you may want to add Crescent Springs, Fort Wright, Villa Hills, Park Hills and Crestview Hills.

In Ohio, consider Kenwood, Pleasant Ridge and Oakley.

You're location choices are spot-on. Try the realtor site, sibcycline for a decent set of listings. Best of luck!

Just to clarify, are you saying you want at most a 30 minute commute to downtown, or that you want to be at least 30 minutes away from the city?

In terms of the commute, I'd want to be no more than 30 min away, but could make an exception for a really nice area/house.

You have to say what your demographics are or none of these comments will be helpful. Do you have children? In school? Public? Do you like yardwork and open spaces. Do you seek out entertainment venues? Are you married even? Do you have a big dog who needs a dog park nearby? Do you like to shop at the mall or in little town square type of shops?
