Question Many Questions Please Help!

Hello and good day everyone!

I want to first say thank you for the help with my questions it is appreciated very much!

Ok here we go!

I am searching for home sin Cincinnati and wanted to get a feel of the area I am looking for a home to make sure it is safe and secure for wife and children.

The area of Cincinnati I am looking at is in the Zip Code of 45244 or East Gate I believe this area is called.

How is life here?

Crime?

Shopping and Restaurant's?

Grocery? (Prefer Meijer's)

Anything and everything you want to share about this area!

I also see I have a listing in Union Township and Anderson anything about these areas or are these just names?

My last and most important question is Cincinnati a buyer or seller's market? I am praying it is a Buyer's Market.

Thank you,

Paul

You're looking at a formerly rural area now very much suburban, overrun with housing tracts and shopping centers (including Meijer!), any chain restaurant you could think of, a reasonably-sized shopping mall, hotels, and movie theater.

Union Township is generally considered "Eastgate;" Eastgate is not a government entity to itself. Rather, it's the name of the mall and the area gradually took on that name. It's reasonably safe. The township has its own police force and fire/rescue departments. Taxes are not outrageous compared to adjoining townships and school districts.

The West Clermont School District has its problems like any other, but it is very well-run. Traffic can be a nightmare at rush hour, but since the current county engineer is dead set on paving over the entire county I wouldn't worry about that much.

Just a friendly suggestion, Paul ... The title of your thread was not very specific. Perhaps 29 people viewed your thread, but didn't know much about Eastgate to be much of a help.

Bottom line? If I had kids, I'd consider moving there. Downtown Cincinnati is easily accessible by freeway, and overall the area is pleasant and affordable.

Consider Loveland. It is just north of Eastgate (we live in Miami Trails in Miami township, city of Loveland).
Loveland has a great schools and a great downtown village with a bike trail. It is convenient to RT 275 and has a good range of housing. It is currently a buyers market.

Ive been in cincy my whole life, a little over 40 yrs, so here is my two cents
If you are going to look on that side of town, I would definitely choose Anderson over Eastgate. Anderson has some diversity when it comes to the neighborhood and schools, Anderson's schools are top performers, much more than Batavia(Eastgate). Its not that Batavia is that bad, its just that Anderson is very good. You should check out the ohio education website which lists the schools, ratings, and performance.
http://dnet01.ode.state.oh.us/DistrictRatings/Districts.aspx (broken link)

If you want schools near the zip you listed above, put in Clermont county
Anderson is in Hamilton County.

Also, if you dont mind going a little further northwest, I would choose Loveland. I am not sure why you are looking at Eastgate, but there are some other places I would recommend, depending on your needs.

I don't know alot about but that area. But you hit the nail on the head, you want to work as close to where you live as possible. I would try to position my work and house so that I do not have to cross I-275 in that area. In other words my home and work are both inside the I-275 beltway or both outside the I-275 beltway. There are not many paths past it and rush hour traffic can back up on the approaches to I-275. I hate SR32 in that area it can be a crawl at rush hour.

I grew up not far from Eastgate.

It is a family-friendly area. Very low crime, generally nice people, very convenient. You can be anywhere in Cincinnati in about 30 minutes from Eastgate. The schools are decent, but housing is cheap relatively to Anderson or Milford (especially for new construction). There are restaurants, a variety of grocery stores, and all the other shopping amenities that most average people want.

If the best school district is a priority, I'd live in Milford or Anderson.

If you want land, live in Brown or Adams county.

If you want an urban experience, live in Mt Lookout or Hyde Park.

All of those would be within 20-30 minutes of your work. I'd be happy to connect you with a friend who is a realtor and lives in the area.
