Hi Nancy,
An hour is a VERY long drive in greater Akron area. Welcome to the land of affordable housing and short commutes! Depends on what geography is important for you and what specifically you want for your new home (size, price, land, etc). I managed our office in the south suburbs (Green, OH) for 6 years and would welcome assisting you. Lots of general tips you can use as you search, give a call/text (330.328.2862) or email and I can give you some insights. There are many attractive areas eg Green, Lake Twp, N. Canton, Jackson, Coventry, New Franklin, Mogadore (smaller, quainter), and then various neighborhoods south but within Akron (Ellet, Firestone Park). Happy to help you further. Best regards - Eric

Get out of Summit County! More for your money in either Stark or Wayne, lower taxes.

There are several nice communities surrounding the Akron area, many of which can be reached in under 25 minutes depending on what side of town you're on and where your work is located. Where are you moving from?
