Cleveland is a growing city without the pressure of fast-paced New York or the lavish lifestyle of Los Angeles. The Cuyahoga River divides the city in two; the East Side displays Cleveland’s Old World charm, with historic homes that inspire the artistic character of this region, while the West Side has a newer infrastructure. Building a house in Cleveland is a good investment; U.S. News reported that housing rates in Cleveland are lower than the median national sale price. There are many home styles found in the city, including charming farmhouse single-family homes or rustic contemporary lake homes.
