The big news, and no surprise, the east side is more expensive than the west. There’s more development over there generally. Mt. Adams, and Downtown are in a world of their own followed by Hyde Park, which is just a huge cluster of wealth.

It’s still a very good time to buy property in Over-the-Rhine.

    Hello Nate,

    As a fellow cartographer, I congratulate you on making a very useful map. What software did you use? Where/how did you obtain your data? Is it possible for me to get a shapefile or mapinfo file to work with this data myself?

    Thank you.

      I use Quantum GIS, a very useful F/OSS GIS software, and the data for this map came from the county Auditor’s office. I’ve been scolded by CAGIS for sharing data publicly before, so I’ll compress the file and send you a link via email.
