Cincinnati Low Maintenance Ranch Living Choices

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 SAL.2002007747

It's time.  You've had the big house and the yard and all the time spent making it all look perfect.  Enough, time to spend a LOT more time enjoying life and a lot less time spent taking care of your home. 

So what are your choices?

Cincinnati patio homes

For the majority of our buyers the answer is a Cincinnati patio home. Cincinnati patio homes are:

  • Typically ranch homes (with or without a basement)
  • Always detached homes  (think a "regular" home)
  • Minimum 2 bed, 2 bath, 2 car garage
  • You own the lot and lawn care is included

attached ranch condos

But there's another primary choice for those buyers wanting low maintenance ranch living:  attached ranch condos

Just like patio homes, attached ranch condos typically are minimum 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage.  They may or may not have a basement.  The biggest differences from a patio home?

  • Since it's a condo you don't own the lot
  • They're always attached to another unit

Now how they're attached to their neighbor varies:

  • Duplex style (think side by side)
  • Triplex (side by side by side, so two end units and a middle unit)
  • Quad style (may be triplex style but with TWO middle units or you may have a rectangular style, with each unit having a corner and attached to two other units)

Your lifestyle with a patio home or an attached ranch condo is going to be fairly similar, but there are a couple of key differences:

  • Since a patio home has all four walls, you have the opportunity for more windows and a lighter interior
  • A patio home lends itself more to a larger deck or patio area, key if you like to entertain or BBQ out back!  This is especially an advantage when compared to a rectangular style quad ranch condo.

Depending on the community, BOTH patio homes and attached ranch condos may be present in the community, but most often you'll only find one style of low maintenance ranch living available.

As your agents we can help you weigh the pros and cons of each type of home and help you pick the right community to suit your individual needs and budget.

Liz & Bill, the older I get the more I gravitate to "less maintenance" clearly the buyers have many choices that fit this life style, Endre

Endre, There are certainly a variety of offerings out there, just a matter of matching location and budgets for our clients.
