Better Quality of Life

We wanted to live close to the university. My wife and I are originally from Europe. We wanted the European feel of being able to walk to work and shops, instead of having to drive everywhere.

It’s a great place to live. There are a lot of professionals in my neighborhood. It’s a central location. I can get to a grocery store easily. I’m close to downtown – and the east or west side. It’s an ideal location.

Great Neighborhood

Constantino’s is great. So much has happened since I moved here. I’m looking forward to the Museum of Contemporary Art and the new restaurants opening. I’ve seen the neighborhood change for the better in less than a year.

Phoebe – CWRU

It’s a beautiful area. There are wonderful institutions and Little Italy is great. It has a small town feel, separate from downtown, with great amenities.

Living Close to Work

If you’re working in the area, why wouldn’t you want to live in the area?

Jackie – Museum of Art

I live 2.9 miles from work. I like to say I roll out of bed and into work. I’ve ridden my bike to work and I could walk to work. It’s convenient and it saves on gas, too.

Program Benefits

We first used the program to rent a condo in Little Italy. When we were ready to buy, we looked all over. But this made us strongly consider staying in the neighborhood. There were a lot of factors – convenience to work and we loved the Little Italy neighborhood. So this program was really icing on the cake. We ended up buying the condo next door to the unit we were renting.

The program is fabulous. I’m so glad it was available to us. We did more on the outside of our home than we would have if not for the loan. The difference between when we bought the home and now – the value’s increased 90% due in large part to the program.

Making a Great Neighborhood Even Greater

Neighbors have noticed a difference in my home since the improvements. It makes my home stand out, even though it sits way back from the road. That’s been nice.

Gary – CC

The growth and renewal that are happening with many of the institutions and their building campaigns is extending into the neighborhoods. It’s fantastic. I hope we have more people spending time in the neighborhood and living in the area so the neighborhood will be sustained. That will improve the neighborhoods. It increases the value of your home and the neighborhood, too.
