1620 E Broad St Apt 1702
Neighborhood/Community: Woodland Park Specs: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 905 sq. ft. Price: $79,900 (plus a monthly HOA fee that includes: Electric, Ext. Building Maint., Gas, Insurance, Recreation, Security, Sewer, Snow Removal, Trash, Water) Things We Love: This apartment is one of the most modern and updated homes you’ll find at this price point. We love the open floor plan but most importantly, the updated kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances.
1044 Bulen Ave.
Neighborhood/Community: Driving Park Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 1,473 sq. ft. Price: $97,900 Things We Love: The hardwood floors throughout this home are absolutely beautiful. And the square footage in this price range isn’t too shabby either.
1678 Aberdeen Ave.
Neighborhood/Community: North Linden Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,232 sq. ft. Price: $75,000 Things We Love: This home is simple, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t special. It has unique touches like baseboards, molding, and even a few original doorknobs. But the thing we love most is the price point!
1742 E Dunedin Rd.
Neighborhood/Community: North Linden Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,023 sq. ft. Price: $94,900 Things We Love: This house is a blank slate. Potential homebuyers will have the opportunity to truly put their stamp on this home.
1631 Roxbury Rd, Apt D6
Neighborhood/Community: Marble Cliff Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 960 sq. ft. Price: $89,900 Things We Love: This adorable apartment is located in The French Quarter, a co-op complex in Marble Cliff. Although co-ops are rare in Ohio, this one has been operating successfully for decades. Potential buyers won’t be purchasing the property, they are purchasing shares of the corporation which includes a long-term lease for the unit.

612 Larcomb Ave.
Neighborhood/Community: South Hilltop Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 1,128 sq. ft. Price: $72,900 Things We Love: This whole home has been updated, including the kitchen which features modern white cabinetry, new appliances, and recessed lighting.
69 S Warren Ave.
Neighborhood/Community: Central Hilltop Specs: 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,712 sq. ft. Price: $59,900 Things We Love: The thing we love about this house is that we have no idea what is going on in there. There’s only one photograph and a very brief description that reads “Now a single family that was previously a two-family duplex, could easily be converted back to a 2 family. Rent is $600 per month. Curb offers only. Do not disturb tenants.” Who doesn’t love a good mystery?
260 N Burgess Ave.
Neighborhood/Community: Highland West Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,660 sq. ft. Price: $82,850 Things We Love: Living in this adorable cape cod will feel like living in your very own retro beach cottage. Sure, there are some confusing things about this house (like those white washed hardwood floors) but it’s nothing that a little elbow greese can’t solve!
1731 Laurel Ave.
Neighborhood/Community: South Hilltop Specs: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 896 sq. ft. Price: $85,000 Things We Love: This ranch-style home is charming and cozy. It maximizes square footage with the partially finished basement and there is plenty of room for entertaining in the large yard.
