Contemporary Cincinnati Home

Looking for a Cincinnati contemporary home?

Good luck.  Nobody would ever suggest that it’s easy to find a contemporary home in Cincinnati!  Today the Multiple Listing Service of Greater Cincinnati only has 84 active listings for contemporary single-family homes.

Most of our homes fall into the category of traditional or transitional.    Cincinnati loves 2 story homes.  The traditional 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths 2 car garage has evolved to a larger size and more open floor-plan.  And while the open floor plan isn’t considered to have a modern/contemporary exterior many homes are adopting a modern interior look.

However, lots of local Cincinnati buyers are looking for more contemporary or mid-century modern architecture.

The contemporary/modern category listing in the Cincy MLS helps on the first search.  However transitional and traditional homes are more popular with buyers.  Given the option, agents will most likely use the transitional classification.  Now buyers looking for truly modern homes will have to sort through several hundred transitional listings.


There are ways to find your dream contemporary home.  Luckily most agents are very familiar with inventory in their market areas and know who to contact if they to find unique houses.

Best advice to buyers- if you’re looking in a particular neighborhood with a wide variety of architectural types keep an open mind and look inside before making a decision.  Many buyers have their mind set on a specific style and often miss great deals on homes that meet all their requirements just because of internet search and MLS limitations.
