Anderson Township, where HOMEARAMA® 2021 will be held, is a favorite pick of Realtors for a host of reasons. Top on the list is location.
“The location within Cincinnati is ideal,” says Debbie Tully with Sibcy Cline Realtors in Anderson. “Whether traveling downtown, to the airport or any of the suburbs in any direction, Anderson's location means getting almost anywhere in 30 minutes or less.”
Sue Miller, senior sales vice president with Comey & Shepherd, adds, Anderson is convenient to downtown with amenities that include world-class museums and cultural opportunities, nationally ranked universities just north of downtown, and a nationally recognized zoo. “Quick, easy access to major highways and interstates makes this area an easy commute for any destination in the Tristate,” Miller says.
Within the township itself, the options for shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor activities are plentiful, as are service providers such as a large public library, parks, medical offices, a sizable suburban hospital, a children’s hospital urgent care, gyms, a YMCA, private athletic clubs, golf courses and churches of every major denomination.
Anderson also has an active local theater and a top-notch performing arts center.
The Ohio River is 10 minutes away with several marinas. Belterra Park with its state-of-art horserace track and betting facilities is on the river within the township’s boundary. In the same complex is River Bend Music Center and Coney Island, which boasts a huge recirculating swimming pool.
For many families, a big draw for Anderson Township are the schools. “There is a strong sense of community here, with top-rated schools and active, involved parents, students and teachers,” Tully says. Jeff Rosa, with Weichert Realtors, says “Anderson is a very unique community that has great schools.”
The area is served by Forest Hills Local School District. The nine schools in the district include: Anderson High School, Ayer Elementary School, Maddux Elementary School, Mercer Elementary School, Nagel Middle School, Sherwood Elementary School, Summit Elementary School, Turpin High School and Wilson Elementary School.
The mix of people in Anderson Township is a draw as well. The community, founded in 1793, includes natives, longtime residents and a consistent flow of newcomers who are attracted to Anderson for its excellent schools, strong home values and quality of life. Price points for homes range from moderate to luxury with an estimated 100 new housing starts each year in the township.
Anderson has multiple high-end residential areas, including spectacular homes surrounding Coldstream Country Club, which is adjacent to the Homearama site at Parkside Estates.
“Luxury and tranquility unite in Coldstream,” says Liz Juszczyk, sales manager for Sibcy Cline’s Anderson office. She notes that the Coldstream area offers “the finest custom-built homes, panoramic views of the Ohio River, gently rolling hills and a premier country club and championship golf course.”
That Anderson is hosting HOMEARAMA 2021 underscores how much the area has to offer home buyers, says Tina Mattix with Kemba Realty. “We are excited about HOMEARAMA,” she says. “Having quality builders bringing new floor plans that meet today’s buyer needs with great lots and beautiful design ideas is great for Anderson Township.”
All these real estate agents would agree with Debbie Tully when she says, “Anderson Township is a wonderful place to live for so many reasons but, for me, it boils down to conveniences, community and commute, which translates into consistently strong home values.”
