Why are home sales booming west of Cleveland?

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Newly constructed homes are hard to find right now in parts of Lorain County. In fact, in some spots, there's no where left to build.

Realtors tell Cleveland 19 some of the reasons include, great schools, lower taxes, and a reasonable distance to downtown.

If you are in the market to find a new home, here are some things a realtor said we should keep in mind:

  • Do your research.
  • Know what type of community you are wanting to live in so that when the home becomes available, you are ready.
  • A lot of listings online are off the market well before they are removed from websites.
  • Ask questions.
