WELCOME WELCOME TO GREATER CINCINNATI!!

David Welch 2017 President Cincinnati Area Board of REALTORS®

Eric Harmon Publisher/President (Relocated to Cincinnati in 2003, launched Cincy Magazine soon after)

As Realtors, we have first-hand experience with the stress and uncertainty that can come with relocating to a new city or area. We are all looking for a resource to help guide those relocating through these changes. That’s why we are excited to announce our partnership between the Cincinnati Area Board of REALTORS® and Cincy Magazine to produce the inaugural Greater Cincinnati Relocation & Newcomer Guide for 2018. The Greater Cincinnati Relocation & Newcomer Guide is the primary source of much needed information for new and relocating Greater Cincinnatians. Both the printed magazine and its accompanying digital offerings provide opportunities for people to learn more about the community and businesses that make up Greater Cincinnati. An easy-to-use reference tool, the Greater Cincinnati Relocation & Newcomer Guide covers topics such as neighborhood information, renting and leasing, education options, health care and attractions within the Tristate area. Our hope is that people moving to the area—and those who already live here—will discover the opportunities and attractions that make this region such a great place to live. Whether you’re a local or you are relocating, this publication says, “Welcome Home.” Please take an opportunity to page through this guide, experience all that Greater Cincinnati has to offer and utilize the services of our sponsors.

It’s a pleasure to welcome you to the Greater Cincinnati area. Whether you are a “newbie” or someone who knows our Tristate region well, we hope that this publication and digital platform serves you, providing a better understanding of the amenities that so many here value. This being the inaugural effort, we can’t thank our partner, the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors, enough. We both realized that there was no updated effort to serve those who are relocating to, or within, the region, and sought to fill this need. The publication title—A Region On The Move—is fitting as those who have been in the Tristate for some time know that our region has transformed itself in many ways to serve those that call Cincinnati home. And just like the Ohio River that cuts through it, I can say that we not only want you to enjoy the Tristate, we encourage you to run amok. Love, learn, engage and create your own Cincy story.

CINCINNATI

Cincinnati has always been a city on the move. Started as a settlement called Losantiville (a blend of French and Latin that means “the town opposite the mouth of the Licking River”) in the late 1700s, the community’s location was selected specifically because of its ideal spot on the Ohio River. Renamed Cincinnati in 1795 to honor the Revolutionary Way veteran group known as the Society of Cincinnati and officially chartered in 1802 (a year before Ohio became the nation’s 17th state), the city leveraged its position as a halfway point between Pittsburgh, Pa., and the Ohio River’s junction with the Mississippi River to become a port of entry and eventually a steamboat powerhouse. By the mid-century, Cincinnati would see some 8,000 steamboat arrivals and departures. As new technology emerged, Cincinnati continued to move forward as it adopted streetcars, canals and trains. Even today, Cincinnati looks to expand its connection to the rest of the country. The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport has attracted businesses like Wayfair, DHL and Amazon to the region thanks to its central location. According to the Cincinnati USA Convention and Visitors Bureau, Cincinnati is within 500 miles of 60 percent of the U.S. population. Because of this, Cincinnati continues to grow and adapt in everything from manufacturing to its arts scene. Cincinnati is ready for its next big step and anyone who lives here can find ways to participate.

Your Guide to Cincinnati-isms In the immortal words of former Bengals Coach Sam Wyche: “You don’t live in Cleveland, you live in Cincinnati!” And Cincinnatians have their own way of saying and doing things. Call them Cincinnati-isms. For example: if you miss what someone’s saying you don’t say “Huh?” or “Excuse me?” or “Come again?” You say “Please?” Geography is important. There’s a long-running rivalry between the East side and the West side, divided somewhere along Vine Street and Interstate 75. When someone asks: “Where did you go to school?” they aren’t talking about what college or university but the local high school where you matriculated. Cincinnatians have plenty of nicknames for their town. Take your pick: Cincy, the Queen City, the Tristate, City of Seven Hills (although there are more than seven), Porkopolis, the Blue Chip City, Zinzinnati or if you’re really hip just “The ‘Nati.” Older residents, in particular, tend to refer to “Cincinnata” instead of “Cincinnati.” Local food favorites may account for all the variations. Cincinnati-style chili comes several different “ways,” but starts with spaghetti, topped by a seasoned meat sauce, shredded cheese and may include beans, onions or all of the above. And a Tristate breakfast of champions gotta include goetta, a German peasant dish of ground meat, pinhead oats and spices cooked to a mush-like consistency and usually fried. Cornhole is another locally acquired taste. It’s a popular portable game where small bags of dried corn are tossed at a target on an inclined wooden platform with a hole at one end. Think of a game of horseshoes without the horse or the shoes.

Regional Transit Cincinnati is a driving town. The city once had canals and streetcars that went up inclines—it even has an incomplete, abandoned subway— but today people throughout the Tristate mostly rely on cars and buses to get around.

PUBLIC TRANSIT Metro – Southwest Ohio’s fixed route bus service. Runs routes throughout Hamilton County as well as commuter routes from Clermont, Butler and Warren counties. Run by SORTA, the Southwest Regional Transit Authority. go-metro.com TANK – The Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky’s fixed bus route. Its routes are in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties and connect those areas to downtown Cincinnati. tankbus.org Cincinnati Bell Connector – Cincinnati’s downtown streetcar, which opened to passengers in September 2016. The streetcar covers a 3.6-mile loop that connects the Banks mixed-use project to Over-the-Rhine. cincinnati-oh.gov/streetcar/

AIR TRAVEL Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport – Based in Hebron, Ky., CVG offers direct flights to more than 40 cities throughout the world. Delta, Allegiant, Frontier and American all offer flights through the airport. Southwest started service there in June 2017 and WOW Airlines (known for inexpensive European flights) is expected to start service at CVG in May 2018. Named the world’s best airport in the 5 million to 10 million passenger category and best regional airport in North America in the 2017 Skytrax World Airport Awards. cvgairport.com Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport – Owned by the city, Lunken Airport is used by private aircraft carriers like Ultimate Air Shuttle. ultimateairshuttle.com

THE SUBURBS

Blue Ash

Amberley Village

More than 1.5 million people live in Cincinnati’s Ohio suburbs, which include Hamilton, Butler, Warren and Clermont counties. Cincinnati’s burbs encompass everything from rolling farmland to the fastest growing urban areas. The suburbs each have their own personality, but they vary greatly in size, from the sprawling Mason (population 32,662) to the intimate Terrace Park (population 2,245). While community loyalty is strong, so is regional pride—we’re forever arguing which is better: the East side, the West side, everything North, or, to the South, Northern Kentucky.

THE SUBURBS TIP-TOP TAP WATER

TOWN CRIER

The city of Hamilton has won repeated state and international awards for the best tasting tap water. The city of 63,000 sits atop the Great Miami Valley Buried Aquifer, one of the finest water sources in North America. The city has 21 deep wells, which draw water from the aquifer for treatment.

Another planned community, the East side suburb of Mariemont, designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007, has another distinction. It is one of a only a handful of U.S. communities with an official “town crier” who, while decked out in historic garb, leads various community events and village meetings.

SUMMIT PARK

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

The City of Blue Ash’s new Summit Park, located on the site of the former Blue Ash Airport, is one of the highest elevations in Hamilton County. That view will be accentuated by the park’s new 150-foot Observation Tower to open in 2018.

The Village of Indian Hill is the formal name of Indian Hill, but it’s actually an incorporated city of 20 square miles including some of the area’s highest priced homes.

VILLAGE OF GREENHILLS One of only three “Greenbelt Towns” built in the United States, Greenhills was created as part of the President Franklin Roosevelt’s plan to build new suburban communities during the Depression. Last year, the historic district in the village of about 4,000 adjacent to Winton Woods was designated a National Historic Landmark.

JUNGLE JIM’S INTERNATIONAL MARKET More than a grocery store, Jungle Jim’s is a food shopping adventure. The original location in Fairfield, which grew out of founder Jim Bonaminio’s roadside produce stand, and the second store in Eastgate each encompass more than 200,000 square feet of food from all over the world, hot deals and foodie fun.

TIPPECANOE WITHOUT TYLER TOO Cincinnati was home to several U.S. presidents, but only one, William Henry Harrison, is buried here in the suburb of North Bend, overlooking the Ohio River. Harrison, who led U.S. forces to victory in the 1812 Battle of Tippecanoe, was elected the ninth president in 1840, but died a month after taking office.

KEEP ON TRUCKIN’

Village of Greenhills

Union Township in Clermont County is home to Total Quality Logistics, a national truck freight brokerage and the region’s largest private company with 2016 revenues of $2.3 billion and more than 4,000 employees.

SOUTHEAST INDIANA

Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg

Not far from the environs of the hustle and bustle of downtown Cincinnati, Southeast Indiana has proven to be a place to live and play. The commute to the more populated areas of Greater Cincinnati is short, with Interstate 275 making it easy to get to places. And the communities and entertainment are superb. The area is diverse, with small to mediumsized communities, but just minutes away are vast areas of farming and woods to explore. Dearborn County, with Lawrenceburg and Aurora as two of its largest communities, was first organized in the early 1800s. The first settlers came to the area mostly via the Ohio River, which is still a focal point. It is named after Gen. Henry Dearborn, who in 1803 was the Secretary of War under President Thomas Jefferson. Today, Dearborn County is a mix of agriculture and industrial businesses, and boasts diverse architectural styles, from federal and Greek revival to Queen Anne and bungalow. To the north, Franklin County has one of the premier boating and fishing spots in Brookville Lake. The county is mostly rural, but is only about a 20-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS Dozens of homebuilders across the Cincinnati metropolitan area—from large regional and national companies to small custom-home builders—are ready to build the home of your dreams. Currently, the area offers more than 250 new-home neighborhoods/projects, according to Austin, Texas-based NewHomeSource.com, started by a consortium of 25 US builders, including Fort Mitchell, Ky.-based Drees Homes. Communities with the most homes being built are Mason, Ohio, with 11 areas of new development ($466,203 average price); Union, Ky. (10; $341,644); Harrison, Ohio (10; $267,409); Loveland, Ohio (9, $409,860); Alexandria, Ky. (9; $253,583); Liberty Township, Ohio (7; $408,178); and Independence, Ky. (7; $274,816). Overall, prices range from the low $100,000s for condos and town homes to $750,000 for single-family homes, although more affluent buyers can find homes priced much higher.

If there’s anything wrong with the housing market across the Cincinnati metropolitan area, it’s that there aren’t enough homes for sale. With low mortgage rates (3.75 percent to 4 percent for 30 years), an expanding economy and increasing home prices, the damage from the Great Recession is almost in the rearview mirror. Plus the area’s housing market generally experiences that measure of stable-toslightly-rising prices found in the Midwest. The Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors, which covers Southwest Ohio and points beyond, reported that the number of homes sold in 2017 was essentially flat through October, compared with a year earlier, but the median price rose to $162,000 from $152,000, up a healthy 6.6 percent. Meanwhile, the inventory of homes for sale was down 12 percent in October, compared with the year earlier. Across the river, the Northern Kentucky Association of Realtors said the number of homes sold was up 1.9 percent for the year-to-date, through October, and the median price rose to $157,000 from $151,000, up 4 percent. Homes sold faster in Northern Kentucky, too, with 2017 average days on the market at 47, vs. 61 a year earlier. If you’re looking to buy a home in the area, and you find one that’s a good fit, be prepared to act fast.

RENT TRENDING UPWARDS If you’re looking to rent in Greater Cincinnati, expect to pay a little more. That’s according to the Zillow Rent Forecast released at the end of October. Seattle-based Zillow Group, which publishes a number of real estate indexes and forecasts, estimated in the forecast that the median rent in the Cincinnati metropolitan area—currently $1,325 monthly—will rise by 4.1 percent in the next year. Cincinnati, which ranks No. 27 in size in the forecast, is projected to have the ninth fastest-growing rents out of the 52 U.S. metropolitan areas in the forecast. That would occur after rents rose at the 19th-fastest rate among metro areas in the previous 12 months, with median monthly rents going up 2.9 percent. In the city of Cincinnati, median rent stood at $1,136 at the end of October, according to Zillow, up 5 percent from 12 months earlier.

7 Reasons to Work with a Realtor

Realtors aren’t just agents. They’re professional members of the National Association of Realtors and subscribe to its strict code of ethics. This is the Realtor difference for homebuyers: • Ethical treatment. Every Realtor must adhere to a strict code of ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. As a Realtor’s client, you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction-related matters. The first obligation is to you! • An expert guide. Buying a home usually requires dozens of forms, reports, disclosures and other technical documents. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal and avoid delays or costly mistakes. Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved, so you want to work with a professional who can speak the language. As a buyer, it is free to have a Realtor represent you on the purchase of your home. • Objective information and opinions. Realtors can provide local information on utilities, zoning, schools and more. They

also have objective information about each property. Realtors can use that data to help you determine if the property has what you need. By understanding both your needs and search area, they can also point out neighborhoods you don’t know much about but that might suit your needs better than you’d thought. • Expanded search power. Sometimes properties are available but not actively advertised. A Realtor can help you find properties not listed on home search sites and help you avoid out-of-date listings that might be showing up as available online but are no longer on the market. • Negotiation knowledge. There are many factors up for discussion in a deal. A Realtor will look at every angle from your perspective, including crafting a purchase agreement that allows enough time for you to complete inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. • Up-to-date experience. Most people buy only a few homes in their lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. Even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. Realtors handle hundreds of transactions over the course of their career. • Your rock during emotional moments. A home is so much more than four walls and a roof. For most people, property represents the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having an objective third party helps you stay focused on the issues most important to you.

Preparing Your Home for Sale CLEAN Clean up to shiny perfection and make sure your home smells clean! (You can put a little bit of Lysol in water in the kitchen sink before each showing to give the home a fresh clean smell.)

DECLUTTER No clutter on the floors, even the floors of the closets. Clutter will make a room appear to be smaller than it actually is.

STRAIGHTEN Straighten bookcases and dust between the books. Straighten closets and hang each item neatly. Make the beds every day.

ORGANIZE Organize your pantry, line or clean the shelves, and straighten the laundry room.

PAINT Make sure you have a good choice of paint colors throughout your home. A blend of whites, beiges, tans and grays is what the eyes of buyers prefer.

TOYS Leave some of your children’s favorites out along with their books.

BATHROOMS They have to be spotless. No toys in bathtubs or towels on the floor. Clean and smelling fresh. No rings in the toilet.

YARD Yellow or red flowers in pots or near the front porch seem to make a home sell faster. Make sure the yard is always manicured, as this is the first thing a prospective buyer will see. The outside appearance is the gate of approval or disapproval.

PORCH/PATIO Create a good patio space for entertaining. Make sure to clean patio furniture and have fresh flowers in each pot. PROVIDED BY REALTOR.COM

In Cincinnati, you’ve got options. Cincinnati, for one, boasts one of the state’s largest public school systems, and there’s plentiful private schools and an abundance of colleges and universities across the region—all of which work together to fuel the Tristate’s intellect. Cincinnati Public Schools, or CPS, is 36,000 students strong, with 56 schools in grades Pre-K through 12, making it Ohio’s third largest district. Three CPS high schools—Walnut Hills High School, Withrow University High School and Clark Montessori High School are ranked among the top public high schools in the U.S., and several other suburban public schools—Wyoming, Indian Hill and Mariemont schools—score highly as well. Across the river, Highlands High School and Beechwood High School are consistently considered among Kentucky’s best. Then there’s private. There’s more than 100 private elementary and secondary schools in the Tristate. The Archdiocese of Cincinnati, for one, maintains a lower student-to-teacher ratio compared to CPS, 13:1 in grades K-12, and recently launched a tuition assistance fund for families. The Archdiocese says more than two-thirds of its students receive college scholarship offers; in 2016, those merit-based awards totaled more than $310 million, or an average of more than $141,000 per student. And when it comes to college, more than 100,000 students are enrolled in nearly 20 public and private institutions of higher learning in and around Cincinnati. The Greater Cincinnati Collegiate Connection, an alliance, represents 18 of those schools in an effort to promote collaboration.

EDUCATION WHY SO MANY PRIVATE? Think there’s a lot of private schools in Cincinnati? It’s not just your imagination. The Archdiocese of Cincinnati runs the sixth-largest network of parochial schools in the U.S.—that’s more than 40,000 students in 112 elementary and high schools in 19 counties, by our count. The Diocese of Covington in Kentucky, respectively, represents its own sizeable chunk, too, or 29 elementary and nine secondary schools across six counties. And that doesn’t include dozens of other nonsectarian or other religious schools across the region. In fact, the Tristate ranks among the top 10 metros with the highest private school enrollment. Why so many? Cincinnati is a Catholic town—the denomination still stands as the single largest in the region—and private school proponents say more schools mean better choices for all. As a state, Ohio also allows vouchers for private schools. EdChoice provides a limited number of scholarships to cover tuition costs for eligible students in designated low-performing districts.

EDUCATION COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS: WHAT IS IT? Many states have adopted dual enrollment programs in an effort to bolster college graduation rates, and Ohio has a long history of such. But its most recent adoption, College Credit Plus, has gained significantly more traction than its predecessor in just a few short years. College Credit Plus, for which students can participate at little to no cost, went into effect in 2015, replacing a stagnant Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program. In the former, only 5 percent, or 30,000, high school students participated. But during the 2016-17 academic year, more than 68,000 high school students took college classes, collectively saving more than $144 million on the cost of higher education. The majority of students enrolled in five main core content areas: English (70 percent), social sciences (51 percent), science (41 percent), math (37 percent) and humanities (33 percent). More than 90 percent received passing grades, per Education Department stats. And College Credit Plus program is poised for continued growth, officials say. The program is open to students in grades 7-12. A school counselor can help you enroll. For more information, visit ohiohighered.org.

TOP CHIROPRACTOR FOREST PARK CHIROPRACTIC AND ACUPUNCTURE

Forest Park Chiropractic and Acupuncture Dr. Reed Moeller, DC, FIAMA, Dipl. AC 1250 W. Kemper Road Cincinnati, OH 45240 513-742-0880 drreedmoeller.com

We believe in the holistic approach to health. Treating the cause of your problem and improving your overall well-being is our No. 1 priority. This year we have celebrated 28 years in practice. What separates us from other chiropractic offices is we offer a variety of additional treatment options. There is acupuncture, which channels energy to the root of the problem. We use physiotherapy and rehab exercise. We have therapist Kim Issac who does FASTR, which stands for Fusion Assisted Soft Tissue Release. PEMF and Shock Wave, which are two of the latest technologies for muscle and joint repair.

We use spinal decompression to treat degenerative and herniated discs. And finally, we use mindfit, which calms the stressed-out mind to a wavelength for healing of the mind and body. Why have back surgery and live on medication when you don’t have to? Here you will be welcomed with open arms to a friendly staff, who have your best interests in mind. We accept all patients and work with you to make the treatment affordable. We’re open Monday through Saturday and we take walkins, so come in today and let us take care of you like you’re family.
