Realtor Talk: 9 Reasons to Move to Loveland

Loveland is a charming, family-friendly city with a small town vibe and big city conveniences. Here, local real estate agents offer nine reasons more and more homeowners want to live in Loveland.

1. It has a small town feel with big city amenities.

The City of Loveland is a tight-knit community with fewer than 20,000 residents, yet it has plenty of stores, local restaurants, breweries and even museums. “Residents love the small-town feel,” said Ellie Kowalchik of Keller Williams Pinnacle Group.

“From annual community events like Loveland's Amazing Race and Christmas in Loveland, to the weekly farmer's market and the walkability of historic downtown, Loveland provides a welcome nod to simpler times and breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of nearby Cincinnati,” Kowalchik says.

2. There are so many things to do.

Residents of ChimneyRidge (the site of HOMEARAMA® 2022) will live less than a mile from the shops and restaurants of downtown Loveland and right next door to Milford, Madeira and Montgomery for additional shopping and dining options.

“Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast taking advantage of the proximity to the bike trail and Little Miami River, a social butterfly looking to spend a night on the town without having to drive very far, or a shopping aficionado seeking unique boutique finds, Loveland has it all,” Kowalchik says.

There’s even an art gallery, the Loveland Castle or the Historic Loveland Museum to tour.

3. The Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail is in your backyard.

It’s affectionately called “the Loveland Bike Trail” because Loveland is arguably the most active stop along the 78-mile paved route. The bike path, which is a mostly shaded trail along the Little Miami River, is lined with food and drink options, picnic tables, restrooms and more.

“For cyclists, walkers or runners, the bike trail offers endless possibilities for exercise,” says Susan Heimerdinger, of RE/MAX United Associates.

4. There are high-quality education options.

Almost every real estate agent agreed: Schools are important for any homeowner, especially those with children, and Loveland offers high quality options.

The Little Miami School District is one of the best school districts in Ohio, and residents have several options for private Catholic schools as well. Loveland High School was rated as a 90 out of 100 in the Best High Schools report by U.S. News & World Report rankings.

5. Enjoy water activities on the Little Miami River.

“Loveland is near the Little Miami River, where you can canoe or kayak and enjoy nature,” Heimerdinger says. There are affordable rental options so you can easily hit the river with your friends or family, including a paddling excursion for small or big groups.

6. Get out into nature.

The bike trail and Little Miami River are just the beginning of the outdoor options for Loveland residents. “There are so many community and Hamilton County parks, on the river, bike trails and hiking opportunities in the diverse landscape of the gigantic land that makes up Loveland,” says Amy Broghamer of Amy B. Real Estate.

Bonus for the nature lovers: The new ChimneyRidge development sits high on 26 wooded acres off of Butterworth Road.

7. Safety offers peace of mind.

Most real estate agents agreed: The low crime rates are a must for any homeowner, particularly families. Loveland has an excellent police department and a crime rate that is 68 percent lower than the national and state average.

8. Commute easily to Cincinnati or Dayton.

Loveland offers easy access to I-275 and is a short drive to Kenwood Towne Centre, Kings Island and more. That makes it a convenient option, whether you work in downtown Cincinnati or Dayton or just need to run errands.

“Loveland is easy to navigate, and it's convenient to hop on I-275 or any of the other back roads into the friendly neighboring communities,” Broghamer says.

9. Dine out or grab a cocktail in the charming downtown area.

Foodies or craft beer drinkers will have plenty of options, ranging from date night to happy hour on the rooftop deck to a family-friendly dinner out.

Meet for breakfast at Paxton’s Grill, sip a drink on the rooftop bar at Bishop’s Quarter or enjoy dessert at the Loveland Dairy Whip.

“Downtown Loveland has such a charm to it,” says Realtor Jeff Williamson. “There are several great restaurants to choose from as well as activities in the spring, summer and fall.”
