Seven Hills Among Best Places For Homeownership In Ohio

NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently conducted a study to find the best places for homeownership in Ohio – analyzed the data for 183 communities and Seven Hills ranked among the top 20.

As renting becomes less affordable, NerdWallet wanted to give potential homebuyers a look at the current housing market. NerdWallet based its rankings on the following criteria: 

  • Homeownership rate
  • Selected monthly homeowner costs
  • Monthly household income
  • Population growth

NerdWallet ranked Seven Hills as the 13th best place in Ohio for homeownership. The area has a homeownership rate of 94.9%, the third highest rate of any place among the top 20. Seven Hills’ median monthly homeowner costs are $1,505, and residents spend 29.6% of their median household income on those homeowner expenses, which meets the standard of affordability set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Other cities that made the top 20 include Norton and Grove City. Read the full study online at
