Best Cities for Homeownership in Ohio

Columbus OH

Ohio was one of the states hit hardest by the economic downturn, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating that Ohio lost just shy of 300,000 jobs over the 18-month recession. While the state’s economic recovery has been a slow process, recent figures show the unemployment rate has dropped from 7.4% just a year ago to 5.5% in May. Additionally, Ohio’s efforts to revitalize its aerospace industry and encourage foreign investment appear to have been successful, with over 438 aviation firms now operating in the state.

Homeownership in Ohio is within reach for most buyers with median monthly homeowner costs at less than 30% of income, which meets the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s standard for affordability. Coupled with an upswing in the state’s economy, purchasing a home in Ohio is likely to be a good investment.

NerdWallet crunched the numbers to find the best cities for homeownership in Ohio. Our analysis answers three main questions:

1. Are homes available? We looked at an area’s homeownership rate to determine the availability of homes. A low homeownership rate is likely a signal of competitive inventory, more options for renters rather than buyers and expensive housing. Areas with a high homeownership rate led to a higher overall score.

2. Can you afford to live there? We looked at median household income, monthly homeowner costs and median home value to assess affordability and determine whether residents could live comfortably in the area. We used monthly homeowner costs to measure cost of living. Areas with high median incomes and low cost of living scored higher. Are you thinking about buying a home? Learn more about current mortgage rates and mortgage refinancing options in our mortgage guide, as well as whether it’s best to rent or buy.

3. Is the area growing? We measured population growth to ensure that the area is attracting new residents and showing signs of solid growth. This is likely a signal of a robust local economy, which is another attractive characteristic for homebuyers.

For more details on our methodology, please see the section at the end of the report.

Here’s what the top cities in Ohio had in common:

  • All of our top 10 cities are clustered around one of Ohio’s three C’s — Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland.
  • Low monthly homeowner costs allowed for residents in all of our top 10 places to spend less than a third of their income on housing.
  • All of our top cities for homeownership were located in small or midsized towns with less than 30,000 residents, and an average commute time of 24 minutes.

Top 10 Cities for Homeownership in Ohio 

1. Pickerington

Pickerington, a Columbus suburb, tops our homeownership list as the second fastest-growing city in the state from 2010 to 2012, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. With over 62 colleges and successful ventures by public-private partnerships, the Columbus region has seen a recent boost in job creation. In addition to employment opportunities in Columbus, Pickerington residents have access to jobs elsewhere in Fairfield County, which is also home to several international companies including EveryWare Global, a manufacturer of kitchen and dining products, Ralston Foods and Nifco America, a plastics fasteners manufacturer. And for those concerned about all work and no play, Pickerington is home to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum and the Violet Festival.

2. Dent

Dent is a census-designated place in Hamilton County’s Green Township. The area saw an 8.6% population increase, the biggest on our list, from 2010 to 2012. Dent’s popularity is probably linked to steady economic growth in the greater Cincinnati area. In addition to efforts to spur the economy by groups such as REDI Cincinnati, Dent has also been a beneficiary of local economic initiatives from the Hamilton County Development Company. These initiatives appear to be paying off for Dent, which has an unemployment rate of only 3%.

3. Powell

With a population of just over 11,000, and a homeownership rate of 96.1%, Powell has a reputation as a pleasant bedroom community for families seeking a small-town atmosphere with close proximity to a big city. Even with its short commute to Columbus, the city has preserved its culture and the historic downtown.  A host of other factors — including a public school system ranked “excellent” by Ohio’s Department of Education, and nearby attractions such as the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium — contribute to Powell’s high median home value, which ranks second in Ohio.

4. North Ridgeville

Located commuting distance from Cleveland, North Ridgeville finds its niche as a town with a high rate of homeownership located near a cluster of educational institutions. In addition to a host of colleges in Cleveland, North Ridgeville is less than 30 miles from Oberlin, Case Western Reserve University and Lorain County Community College. St. Peter School and Lake Ridge Academy also call North Ridgeville home.

5. Avon

As North Ridgeville’s smaller and slightly pricier neighbor, Avon earned its rank on our list with its 7.2% rate of population growth from 2010 to 2012, and a high median home value of $252,800. Avon, which is close to Lake Erie, is a quick drive to Miller Nature Preserve, a favorite place to launch a boat, swim and fish. While Avon’s dedication to education shows in its 100% rating by state education officials, its dedication to fun is on display at its annual Duck Tape Festival.

6. Macedonia

Macedonia made our list with a high homeownership rate of 91.4%. While technically part of the Akron metropolitan area, Macedonia is a nearly equidistant commute from Akron or Cleveland. Macedonia’s location is not only ideal for commuting, but it is also several minutes from the sprawling 33,000-acre Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Macedonia is part of Nordonia Hills, several small towns that share public school systems and a chamber of commerce.

7. Bridgetown 

This census-designated place is the second of three locations on our list in Hamilton County. Bridgetown is the second-most affordable place on our list with median monthly homeownership costs of $1,316. The area, which was incorporated as Bridgetown North until 2010, is a prime destination for outdoor enthusiasts, since it is between the 4,300-acre Miami Whitewater Forest and the 1,500-acre Mount Airy Forest. Farther west, residents can find Mitchell Memorial Forest, which is known for its mountain-biking trails.

8. Hilliard

The city, just 13 miles outside Columbus, benefits from its proximity to the capital and Ohio State University. Its higher median home value of $206,800 is balanced by a strong economy and Hilliard’s rank as the city with the second-highest median household income of our top 10 cities. High schools in the Hilliard School District have won several state championships in various sports while maintaining a graduation rate of 93.8%.

9. Trenton

Located halfway between Dayton and Cincinnati, Trenton is the perfect match for those looking for an affordable home in southwestern Ohio’s growing economy. At just $1,332, Trenton has the second-lowest monthly homeownership costs out of our top 10 cities. Top employers in the area include GE Aviation, Mercy Regional Medical Center, P&G and AK Steel. Trenton is also close to several nationally ranked hospitals and the Dayton International and Cleveland Hopkins International airports.

10. Mack

Rounding out the top 10 is Mack, a census-designated place and our third entry from Hamilton County. Although home prices in Mack are relatively expensive at $223,000, it has the highest homeownership rate on our list at 97.3%. Like the other places in Hamilton County, Mack benefits from its location at the corner of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and its proximity to parks. With an unemployment rate of 3.7%, and a median annual income of $82,800, Mack also appears to be financially stable.

Methodology

The overall score for each city was derived from these measures:

1. Homeownership rate made up 33.3% of the total score. A higher rate earned a higher score. The rate comes from the U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-year Estimates for all places in the state, Table DP 04.

2. Selected monthly owner costs as a percentage of median household income made up 16.7% of the total score. A lower percentage earned a higher score. Monthly homeowner costs as a percentage of median household income made up one-half of the affordability score. Median household income comes from the U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-year Estimates for all places in the state, Table DP 03. The figure for monthly homeowner costs comes from the U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-year Estimates for all places in the state, Table DP 04.

3. Median home value made up 16.7% of the total score. A lower value earned a higher score. Median home value made up one-half of the affordability score. Median home value comes from the U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-year Estimates for all places in the state, Table DP 04.

4. Population change from 2010 to 2012 made up 33.3% of the total score. A higher percent change earned a higher score. The 2010 population comes from the 2010 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates for all places in the state, Table DP 05. The 2012 population data comes from the 2012 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates for all places in the state, Table DP 05. NerdWallet calculated the percent change.
