Cincinnati and Warren County Ohio Patio Homes

Do You Want Your Patio Home With Or Without A Basement?

When a buyer contacts us about helping them purchase a Cincinnati patio home we're going to have a few questoins to help with the search.

Where do they want to live?

What's their comfortable price range?

Are there certain community amenities they must have?

And of course, do they want a basement?

There's obviously three answers to that last question.

A definite NO.

A definite YES.

And either with or without a basement is fine as long as all the other key criteria are met.

Now obviously there are considerations for each condition.

Typically our buyers that want a home with no basement are driven by the following:

1.  Stairs are (or will be) a problem to navigate so why have a space that involves going up and down them?

2.  They're downsizing and KNOW that if they have the extra space, they'll fill it!

3.  Cost savings (a patio home with a basement costs more to construct than a patio home on a slab).

Obviously storage space has to be examined when looking at a patio home without a basement.

For those desiring a basement the following matter:

1.  The extra living space.  Either the spouses would like to have some separate spaces for hobbies, offices, etc.

2.  A place for visitors (send the grandkids downstairs so the adults can talk upstairs).

3.  Additional storage space (if needed).

4.  A place to duck and cover if a storm is bad.


Depending on preference, some patio home communities are eliminated.

Want a basement?  Forget about Liberty Grand in Liberty Township or Park Place and Bel Haven in West Chester as every patio home in those locations is built on a slab.

On the other hand, Cincinnati's only 55+ community Heritage At Miami Bluffs has a mix of basement and non-basement homes.  Their courtyard home series were strictly built on slabs.  However, there patio homes may or may not have a basement (although most DO have a basement).


Bottom line, we're here to find that perfect match for your needs and the available patio home communities.
