House hunting by a school district is relatively common within the greater Cincinnati real estate market. Remember many school districts cross over from one Multiple Listing area to another. For example, the Princeton School District covers Sharonville, Springdale, Evendale, Glendale, and even parts of West Chester.
If the school district is your primary concern, make sure you and your agent search by the school district, not suburb codes.

2021 versus 2002 reflects a slightly slower market with home sales declining. But across the board, the average sale price is still going up. It’s difficult for some buyers to make a move. Potential sellers afraid of having their property sold out from under them need to discuss strategies with their agents.
