Cleveland: anyone buying in 44105 or 44110, or other East zips?

3 Replies | Cleveland, Ohio

I know there's a big appetite for the Westside of Cleveland (e.g. Lakewood and others).  But is anyone investing on the Eastside? I know things vary street by street in Cleveland, but just wanted to find out if anyone sees opportunity in 44105, 44110, -03, -06, -08, -04 etc.  Thanks.

I would suggest 44128 if you want an affordable, decent area east of town. With that being said it depends on your strategy and risk tolerance.  If you’re looking for D and F areas on purpose then the issues that come along with it should be set in concrete for your expectations up front.

My question is 'why?'  My properties are in Cuyahoga County but are based on market research used to meet a specific strategy.  For the life of me I don't see how any market research would put my money into those zips unless I had a concealed carry, was a lot younger, and had more money than brains.
