Cost of Living

The cost of living in Ohio and the Greater Akron region consistently ranks below the national average. Whether you seek a spacious home with a big yard or your preferences lean more toward a downtown loft or maintenance-free condo, Greater Akron is affordable. On top of that, Akron offers the convenience of a short commute; with no place in the region more than a 20 minute drive away.
