I'm reaching out as a former CH resident who is transitioning to return to the area (maybe not CH, mind you, but to Cleveland proper)

I took a look at the listing link you provided, and I'll tell you---I'd snap that up in a hot minute

CH was a still a pretty good place when I left back in 2005, and the Quarry-Dennison/Oxford-Noble areas did indeed have some good, well kept properties...still holds true today, as I've seen whenever I go home to visit

You may get varying opinions on CH from my fellow posters---some will sing it's praises and some will say it's becoming the 7th belly of hell LOL

The truth, as always, probably lies somewhere in the middle, but speaking for myself here, I'd say you couldn't go far wrong looking at that area first...only gripe I have about CH is its' property taxes, which can be quite high...but I still hold forth that it's a good area to live in

Also, if you have earned income, understand the Ohio municipal income tax system. E.g., understand both the rates and the residential tax credit for Cleveland Hts. You likely would have to pay an income tax both in Cleveland Hts. and another city of employment.

Interesting, thanks. Looking closer, I'm not finding many restaurants/attractions in that area, other than the parks, but then no place is perfect. We are very attracted to some of those houses, though.

I'm early retired, but that's good to know if my wife decides to work, thanks. We like many areas of Cleveland Heights, especially near Coventry Road. We're just trying to decide if we like it enough to pay the high (to us) property taxes. I believe we should get some relief with the homestead exemption when I turn 65, correct?

I think the area for the house you linked is fine as it's far enough away from Noble to be okay. I think the best of this general area is going to be south of Monticello and to some extent away from Noble though once you're up the hill (going South from Monticello) there's less of a concern about being more in the middle of the neighborhood, IMO.

Hello, I am interested in finding out about Shaker Heights, Cleveland 44120. Moving from North Jersey/NYC area and I need a very walkable neighborhood with shopping, public transportation. I do not keep a vehicle. Have been car-free for over 20 yrs. I am a "senior", will be buying a home (hopefully) just want a somewhat urban area, mid size house. What about Cleveland proper, a downtown area, walkable to all amenities. I am not a party person, but do like fine dining. According to map w/ Shaker area, the restaurants seem to be Pizza, chicken places. Is that because of college area? Any info. would be appreciated.

Hello, I'm interested in areas that are between Cleveland and Youngstown (my partner has a job in Youngstown, and some opportunities for me have come up in the Cleveland area). I currently live in the NYC metro area. We're still working together to hammer out a compromise on what we both want, but I'd like to know some of the options for places within decent commuting distance from both Youngstown and Cleveland. Thanks!

I would say Streetsboro is the best bet. It's a straight shot on the Turnpike to Youngstown, and a very easy trip on 480/77 to downtown CLE. Complete with good schools and a lot of amenities.

Hi there! My husband works at Jack Casino. We live in Canton. It's a bit of a cummute.

Were looking to buy a house closer to Cleveland. We wants suburbs, 20-30 minutes from downtown. We have a 2 year old, so schools are in the equation but mostly worried about elementary as were likely to move again within those 10 years. We aren't super picky about the schools though. Mostly don't want a *bad* school. Average is just fine (though in Ohio open districts seem to make it possible to buy even with bad schools, so under the right circumstances we'd do that, we'd just prefer not to)

We have a budget of 150k and need 4 bedroom.

We've already done some looking and the areas that seem most likely for our budget and needs are Parma, Middleburg, North Olmstead, North Ridgeville, Elyria. Euclid is also tempting because we can get some real bang for our buck there and it doesn't seem too bad (though I don't know much about it) Curious what the general consesus on those areas are, or if there are others you'd suggest or not suggest. I think I've heard Euclid and Elyria are going "down hill", but I'm not really sure what that means. Crime is rising? Housing prices are falling so we may lose $ buying there?

Thanks
