We are planning to move to the Columbus area. I am searching in Dublin, Powell, and Lewis Center, but it's challenging to find a house under $700K with a fence. Could you recommend a city with good schools and fenced yards? Also, if you live in a house without a fence, how do you safely let your dog run off-leash?

If you see a house you really like, you can spend a few extra thousand to get it fenced later. In a town like Dublin, you just apply for a permit with a city which shouldn’t be more than a couple hundred bucks. Just make sure you have the property lines mapped out correctly so there are no issues with neighbors later.

My house in North Linden for $200k has a fully fenced back yard, and it's not small either, property is about a quarter acre. Can't imagine shelling out $700k and not even getting a decent fence.

I thought there were restrictions on fences from the HOA. In Michigan, newer homes have the same fence restriction from the HOA, and you can only install a fence if you have a pool. I will check with my realtor.
Thank you!

I would think that only applies if you live in a HOA community, but yes if so you’d be correct.

In my area the McMansion HOAs are insane. I know a guy in my area who has been dealing with a HOA that is demanding that he remove an oak tree and replace it with an Elm tree. Other people have been told they have to park in the garage and not the driveway because their cars were not luxurious enough. Most of them have an invisible fence to keep the dogs in the yard.

Maybe get an invisible fence? Dublin subdivisions rarely allow fences of any kind and I don't blame them. Too many put up nice looking privacy fences and then 5 years later half of them are missing boards, leaning 15 degrees off center and in dire need of paint/stain.

You're not going to get a fence in Dublin. It's against City Code. There are a few older properties that are grandfathered in but chances of hitting one of those is slim
