Lakewood Alive Presents Downtown Open House
Thinking about your dream home? You may want to check out this event.
On Saturday April 16, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., LakewoodAlive joins with the real estate community to showcase homes for sale in Lakewood. Only seven miles west of downtown Cleveland, Lakewood is an affordable suburb with great schools. In 2010, Lakewood was named by Business Week magazine as “Ohio’s Best Place to Raise Your Kids.” This recognition was based largely on Lakewood’s affordability and numerous community assets, including the “Excellent” rated school district, the expansive city park system and easy access to regional attractions. Additionally, in 2008, This Old House magazine named Lakewood as one of the “Best Places in the Midwest to Buy an Old House.” Over 50,000 people have found their ‘dream’ on one of Lakewood’s tree-lined streets.
Plan out your “day of dreams.” In the morning, do a little shopping. Then walk, get on your bike, or hop in your car to tour the event’s featured homes. Expect to see a wide variety of choices to peruse – from starter homes at $80,000 to lovely mansions on the lake at over $1,000,000. After your tour, stop in at one of Lakewood’s great restaurants and ponder how your dream can become a reality over a great dinner, elegant glass of wine, or a cold beer.
What if you don’t find your dream home? Well, recently, Travel and Leisure magazine named Lakewood as “One of the Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit.” So, even if your day doesn’t end up like you planned, you will have had a fun day in a great place.
