The Buckeye State is a fantastic Midwestern state full of beautiful homes. The cost of living is fairly low compared to other states around the country, so you can find a new, gorgeous home for less than $300,000. In many areas, you can find a large home to raise your family for less than $200,000. Brick and vinyl siding are both equally common in the state, so if you have a preference, it won't be difficult to find either. Many homes will have a combination of the two. Many older homes are known for having gorgeous woodwork and large, covered porches, where you can sit with you family and watch thunderstorms.
