I am a late 30s single female who just wants to start over. I leaving Austin to be closer to my only son at NYU. I'm broke because of his tuition but want to buy because I want new roots. Is Cleveland going to come back around or am I crazy to consider moving to one of the eastern suburbs near there. I'd love to find a older nice neighborhood in the 100 thousand range. Any thougts or suggestions or am I totally crazy?

No, you're not crazy at all. Start your search in Mayfield Hts. and Lyndhurst. My only "warning" is that the eastern suburbs are in the snow belt. If you can't handle extra snow 3-4x per year, you might look elsewhere (maybe more on the south side).

I would also recommend looking into Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights. They have an older housing stock than Mayfield and Lyndhurst and should have a good selection of homes around $100,000 range. Also, these suburbs have more walkable areas (with shops, theaters, restaurants, and grocery stores) and Shaker Heights is served by the blue and green lines (light rail that goes into downtown Cleveland). However, I am not sure that buying right away is a good idea. I think it would be better to rent for a while so that you could make sure you like an area or find an area that is a better fit for you. Good luck and if you decide to move here, welcome to Cleveland!
