Pay attention to your Property Taxes. When you say "near" Youngstown - how far of a commute are you comfortable with? If you are willing to drive 25-40 minutes you will save $100-$300 a month just in property taxes and Home Owner's Insurance. All of the suggestions below are right on point - the surrounding areas are beautiful and all the people are extremely helpful and nice! Best of luck with your move!

As a lifelong resident of the Youngstown, Ohio area and full time real estate agent since 1976 , I feel qualified to respond to your question. The suburbs of Canfield, Poland and Boardman are the most favorable areas to purchase a $200,00 home. You'll be pleasantly surprised with the dramatic difference in the housing values of Ohio vs California. Please contact me with more specific details regarding your home requirements and I'll provide further info.

I agree, Boardman, Poland ,Austintown ,and Canfield. 2 places to consider if you're looking in the $200,000 range......I'd suggest Historic Boardman near "The Glen", or there are some newer construction homes in certain austintown developments where that $200,000 seems to go a very long way. A few homes I seen when I was shopping were awesome in the $200,000 range in austintown. I seen the similar style homes less than 5 miles away selling for like $100,000 +more. Same house, different school district. This is just my observation......I am not a real estate Pro.....lol. I am a contractor though...so I was aware of the model home.

There are some great neighborhoods near Youngstown. But, stay out of Youngstown proper! Look in Austintown, Canfield, Poland, Boardman, Suffield, even Erie and Sharon, PA. Regards and good luck, David

Even though I work the SW Ohio market, I can say that the most important thing for you to do is to find a real estate agent you can trust, that will work hard for you. We have several programs for people that are moving into our area from out of town, and your agent should as well. They should have a system for you to receive updates on all new listing via email at the very least, this way you can get started looking. Also, you can visit my website and go to community information page. From their you can put in the city, zip code, etc. to find info about the area and there is a school info tab there as well you can search the xchool districts, if this is important to you - this service covers the entire country from my website.

Lastly, I can certainly connect you with a good agent from that area who will take good care of you, please let me know if you would like this, my email address is: sold@JohnYouker.com
