Default Buy a house in Cleveland area

Hello all!

My daughter will start Kindergarten this fall, and I am thinking of buying a house before this May. I live in an apartment in Mayfield Heights right now, (I moved here from NJ last June). My budget is ~250,000, and I am working in east Cleveland.

I am considering the following areas, would appreciate your comments on them:

1. Mayfield Heights/Mayfield Village/Highland heights

2. Beachwood/orange

3. Solon

4. Chesterland.

Thanks a lot!

I think in that price range Mayfield Heights/Mayfield Village/Highland heights
and maybe even Richmond Heights and Lyndhurst would allow you to get the most for your money. You could definitely get a house with 3-4 bedrooms and 2-2.5 baths with yard. You will probably get more responses in the forums at Urbanohio.com

Thanks a lot. I checked with greatschool.net, Richmond Heights and Lyndhurst don't have great schools. Mayfield has decent high school, but just so so elementary school. I wonder whether there is a good place to check more detailed information about schools in Cleveland, like the art classes, second language, after school program etc.

^You might want to check the individual school district websites. Generally they have good info on what courses are offered.

Do you mean:
East section of City of Cleveland
City of East Cleveland
The Eastern suburbs of the metro area of Cleveland?

OK. Your definition was unclear to me. A bonus is it is (was?) one of the most corrupt places in Cuyahoga County. That is not easy to do.
