I am looking to move my family and business to Ohio. I here the cost of living is good, homes are affordable, taxes are good in some areas and you get all four seasons. I just cant seem to get ahead here in south Florida. Housing is too expensive, taxes are through the roof and home insurance is outrageous. I want to give my children a good life and my wife wants the change of seasons. Plus, I see you get some land with your property. Here in S. Florida most home are on top of eachother. My neighbor know what size underwear I wear. I have friends in Avon, Avon Lake and Rocky River. Any suggestions as to where would be a good place to live and raise a family? I am also a chiropractor... Any ideas as to a good place to open an office? Thanks!!

All the cities you've mentioned are excellent. If you have the ability to really get your business rolling, I can't imagine why the Strongsville/Brunswick/Medina areas couldn't use a Chiropractor. But, I'm and optimist with Ohio's economy.

Medina County is booming right now. It has a rural setting, anything you need close by, good school systems, and low crime. I actually don't like Brunswick, but further south is nice.
PS: I'd love to sell you my house, 14 acres, pond, fields and woods in southern Medina County; 1/2 hour from Akron and Cleveland, and an hour from Columbus.

Avon, Avon Lake, and Rocky River as you listed are all top notch cities and you couldn't go wrong with either. Although, Rocky River is far denser and you'll probably get a larger plot of land in Avon or Avon Lake.

Default Moving to Ohio

I currently live in South Florida and I understand that the economy is tough right now. Many businesses are closing and property is expensive.

But I have family in Ohio and some areas have been devastated first by the loss of jobs in the steel industry and than by the auto industry.

Cities which once were beautiful cities are turning into Gettos. People are leaving to find jobs leaving empty houses which are being vandalized. The unintended consequenses is that the Tax base to support the cities is shrinking.

Cities are laying off Safety Forces. So as crime is going up, Policemen and Firemen are losing their jobs. My son has been a Firemen for 13 years and is walking away from his pension, as he will lose his job in January, he is moving to NC.

The lay offs are of course the younger members of the forces, so this is leaving you with a Safety Forces of older people. At some point one must ask when all the Firemen are 45 - 60, will they need saved rather than do the saving.

Be very careful where you are going.

^Hmmm.... I though that was happening in South Florida?

I hardly see such things occuring in Ohio now. Such negative developments already occured many years ago and are now in the process of being cleaned up.

Sorry but that is not correct.

Right now on the Trumbull Co., OH Court site there are at least 135 houses being sold at Sherriff's Auction on Nov 19th. That is 135 empty houses, 135 tax payments not being made. And every month it is the same. There are over 3000 vacant houses in the City of Warren, OH. Two Fire Stations have been closed.

Here are some OH jobless rates by Counties as reported by the Warren Tribune Chronicle.

Trumbull County had the state's ninth worst jobless rate among counties at 13.5 percent, down from 14.4 percent a month ago. Mahoning County's rate dipped to 11.8 percent from 12.9 percent.
Highland County led the state with a 15.3 percent jobless rate, closely followed by Meigs County at 15.2 percent.
Among neighboring counties, Ashtabula had a 12.6 jobless rate, followed by Columbiana at 12.5 percent, Portage at 9.2 percent and Geauga at 6.5 percent.
Stark County came in at 11 percent, while Summit County had a 9.6 percent rate.
Among major cities, Canton posted a 12.3 percent rate, while Toledo checked in at 12.1 percent and Dayton at 12 percent. Cleveland, traditionally one of the worst for finding work, had a 10.3 percent rate.

So although it does show that the jobless rate has fallen a bit, the numbers are dismal at best. Plus one must wonder why they dropped; did they run out of benefits, did they take a minimum pay job to survive.

Warren has had to close two fire stations, other cities in OH have had to do the same thing.

^Don't forget to mention that most school levies are going down to defeat as well as sales tax renewals.

This is happening everywhere, even North Carolina and Florida. The unemployment rate in Charlotte is 10.2% and in Miami-Dade County it's 11.3%.

Times are rough in the United States, no doubt about it.
