Where should I live in Columbus Ohio?


Wondering Where to Live in Columbus Ohio?


Columbus Ohio has over 100 distinct neighborhoods and communities or subdivisions from the major downtown area to surrounding towns and villages. As the largest city in the state of Ohio and home to over 2 million people, it can be confusing and somewhat frustrating to find exactly where to live. As a professional Columbus Ohio real estate agent is not only my job but my passion to help new buyers and those moving from out-of-state or out of city find exactly what they're looking for in the price range that they need.


Row HousesThere are several masterfully planned communities and development around the downtown Columbus area such as the Arena District. Many of these affluent communities and homes offer estates over $500,000 or more. Other communities such as Clintonville offers a variety of house designs and styles built in the 1950s such as Cape Cod’s, Rancho ramblers, and several split level homes. It’s close to schools and many parks in the area.

Speaking of parks, German Village is a great community just south of I70 and offers historical districts, parks and recreational facilities, classic and Victorian homes plus some newer designs. Flytown is a unique community just northwest of the downtown area and offers a Victorian Village which at the 19th century was considered the center of the Irish -American community and is often nicknamed "Irish Broadway".
