Cleveland area homes with large yards

3 Replies

Hi all! I'm wondering if any of my fellow Clevelanders, or investors in Cleveland own any properties with large yards? I'm talking in the 2 acre range. North Royalton and Strongsville areas to give a better idea. If you can make the numbers work, are they good as rentals? How does the yard maintenance work? Who is responsible for the cutting all that grass?

I know most invest much closer to the city, with much less land, but can this work? I am asking because I have a possible deal coming up soon, and I can't find much talk of this on the forums. 

I'm interested in hearing your opinion on this as well, if you can @James Wise

Thanks!

 If it's a single family home the tenants can handle the grass, no issue.

High end neighborhoods like Strongsville & N Royalton are great. Talk about exit strategy.  You can rent them for awhile then renovate to sell for top dollar to an owner occupant when the market is at a peak.
