This is Great News for Cincinnati, as a city that is filled with such pride and steeped so deeply in tradition landing on a list in Forbes is a tremendous honor in itself, but to then be in the Top 10 out of a 100 as one of the best places to raise a family!, that says a lot about this great city. Most people here would say it’s the only place to raise a family. So hat’s off to Cincinnati for such a great accomplishment.
Maronda Homes, came to Cincinnati 6 years ago with that same belief of family and tradition, we are a family owned business and have been in doing business sense 1972. Be sure to check out just a few of Maronda Homes locations that are close to the city. And keep in mind that these communities are offering a 10 year tax abatement as well, so I would really encourage taking a look!
