Cincinnati Property Market and Real Estate Guide

(Cincinnati, Ohio - OH, USA)

Picture of the Cincinnati skylineThe populous city of Cincinnati attracts an impressive number of visitors from around the globe each year. Situated on the Ohio River's, this is a pleasant place to explore.

The recent fall in property prices has meant that more and more visitors to Cincinnati have been choosing to purchase property here. There is certainly plenty to choose from, with bargains to be found all over the city. A decline in the city's industrial base of the years has deflated property prices. Gentrification and revival of certain areas has created interesting opportunities for property buyers and those looking for a second home in this important Midwest city.

The most popular neighborhoods to stay in tend to be located near the river, particularly Dayton, Newport and Mount Adams. However, there are also reasonably priced apartments and houses to be found to the north of the city in the neighborhoods of Norwood and St. Bernard.

Renting Serviced Apartments

Serviced apartments in Cincinnati come in all shapes and sizes, from three bedroom apartments suitable for families to glamorous bachelor pads. Coming fully furnished, serviced apartments are perfect for those who want to make Cincinnati their home away from home.

Those looking to rent a serviced apartment will often be asked to sign a lease for at least six months. These apartments tend to be priced at the top end of the property market, but include all the latest mod cons necessary to make life comfortable.

Buying Apartments and Houses

With plenty of property to choose from all over Cincinnati, buying property in the USA is no problem for foreigners and there are no special rules or regulations that need to be followed. Although buyers are free to work independently, going through an estate agent makes the entire process run much more smoothly and they can advise on the additional costs necessary, such as title insurance, mortgage insurance and stamp duty. Typically these fees amount to between three and five percent of the property cost and should be paid before the sale is completed.

Real Estate Agents
