Hi, my house is in the Madison Place Subdivision of Madisonville.
So, technically if I sell it, I could list it under either name. Seems like Madisonville has the "bad" name. Madison Place is usually talked about as being nicer (even though some of it is technically IN Madisonville like my house).
Here's my thing. Madison Place is a very small piece of the area. So, I'd think it would get less hits if people were looking. When looking at comparables that are on the market now, most of the houses are listed as Madisonville. My house would "fit" price wise in the middle of comparable houses/square footage etc. Under "madison place" it would be priced near the top of the others listed.

What should I list it under?

I say Madisonville, but I am biased because I bought my house there a year ago. To be honest, I hadn't even heard of Madison Place until the realtor I used showed me a house there and explained how its just a little subdivision of Madisonville. Yeah, Madisonville does have a bad reputation, but good people are moving in and trying to fix parts up. Prospective homebuyers who go check the right areas out will know this - it smacked me upside the face when I checked out my house for the first time.

I sure hope Madisonville makes a comeback, it has been depressed for far too long. When I was a youth in Madeira, Madisonville was where we went to shop. Then suddenly it seemed to go into decay. With Mariemont to the South, Indian Hill to the East, and Madeira/Kenwood to the North, I would have to rate its chances at revival to be good.

Colloquially, the neighborhood east of Plainville Road is considered Madison Place, no matter which side of the "corporation limit" sign you live on. Some would extend that further west. But I think you'd be OK listing the house in Madison Place.

I'd call it Madison Place and talk up its proximity to Mariemont. Madisonville still says "crime."

Ohiogirl81, there is actually a subdivision map that the city holds that designates what's Madison Place and what's not. For the most part, you are correct that the east of Plainville is Madison Place, but there are some exceptions to that rule. The subdivision lines are actually quite odd. It's like someone decided they didn't like certain streets, and didn't want them included. Let me see if I can find it.

I'm pretty sure that entire plat east of Plainville is legally called the "Madison Place subdivision" -- that's how it's listed on the property deeds, no matter if you're in Cincinnati or in Columbia Township. The city limit winds its way through the subdivision -- there's a small chunk of the city that extends to the east past Kenmore on Britton and Merwin, but mostly the corporation limit runs a straight line between Plainville and Kenmore.

It's really easy to determine where the corporation limit is when it snows.

I'm not sure if the homes west of Plainville were platted as Madison Place or not. I could have some friends look at their deeds.

My property line was also the city limit; I was in Cincinnati, my neighbor was in Columbia Township. His property taxes were twice mine. I could do open burning in his yard, he could put three layers of shingles on his roof but I could have only two, etc.

Came in pretty handy as far as trash disposal, because we could put our trash out at each other's curbs when needed.
