Lakeside living means fresh-water breezes and walks along the shore. Best of all, it's affordable.

Savvy Homebuying

Ohio offers the most prime Great Lakes homes in the Midwest. Drink in the lush green scenery and breathtaking lake views from Willoughby to Mentor and down to Concord. Living on the lake comes with all kinds of beautiful perks. Imagine waking up to a waterfront view, walking the dog on the sands of Lake Erie or spending the weekend fishing or kayaking. Ryan Homes has established six communities in the heart of Lake County—and our homes are considered some of the best in this sought-after region.

Want the lake and a city too? Ohio's largest metropolitan center is only a short commute away and professional opportunities abound.

The financial and healthcare sectors have seen recent growth, but it's the biomedical field that's really booming in northeastern Ohio. Some other popular industries according to Inc. Magazine include marketing, business/consumer products and services and IT. Even manufacturing is emerging in the Rust Belt once again.

Plus, with the recent surge in a younger population, it's clear Cleveland is the next cool place to live. Numerous new restaurants and bars are opening up in downtown, and there is plenty of family fun, too.

Foodies won't want to miss the famous West Side Market: Cleveland's oldest public market, and home to 100 vendors selling meat, produce, dairy products, baked goods, as well as flowers and ready-to-eat food
