Hello,

What is Reynoldsburg, Ohio like? Is it a good place to live? Are the schools good? It seems like property values are declining? Would it be a good place to buy a house?

This map is a bit outdated because it shows the median housing value change for 2000-2010, but you can see that Reynoldsburg increased in value that decade, but not by very much. Most of the highest value increases were along the High Street corridor, North Columbus, and the West Side from Hilliard through Dublin. Sporadic high growth occurred south of New Albany, Easton and a few other places.

Since 2010, home prices across the county have been increasing as the housing market remains historically tight (low supply, high demand). The hottest areas remain largely within I-270, but the suburban areas are mostly seeing increases too. To see all areas of the Columbus metro, you can check out this link: Housing Statistics, Columbus Board of REALTORS (R) You can look at year over year and monthly data for all areas including Reynoldsburg.

Reynoldsburg schools don't have the high reputation that Dublin, New Albany, Bexley or Hilliard have. But not as bad as Columbus Public or Whitehall.

It seems like a decent place to live. Depends on what you are looking for.

There are good areas in Reynoldsburg - and not so good areas.

Schools - There was a teacher strike in September/October 2014. From what is reported in the news, the two sides continue to argue and bicker. The contract that they finally agreed on is good for three years. Who knows what will happen then??

There were tons of "We Support Reynoldsburg Teachers" around town during the strike. If the community truly does support the teachers, they will have to raise property taxes to pay for what the teachers want.

Whitehall is more working class (per capita income ~$18k) while Reynoldsburg is middle-class (per capita income ~$29k vs state average of ~$26k). Whitehall grew up in the 1950s era while Reynoldsburg grew out in the 80s and 90s. Aside from both having an AA population about double that of the state and national average, I don't see much similarity beyond proximity.
