People searching in Ohio who want a smaller-town vibe near an area with plenty of urban amenities will find Riverside an excellent match. The city—which considers itself resident-focused—is made up of about 25,000 people, and is located in the eastern suburbs of Dayton.
Riverside isn't as dense as Dayton, and within city limits you'll find a nice variety of homes and land for sale. With part of the city bordered by the Mad River and the other side next to I-675, plus ample green spaces, you can find houses in a variety of settings. Riverside still has properties with acreage as well as more neighborhood-oriented sections. Home prices are affordable, making it a good choice for those who are starting out, or are looking for a little extra space. The land gives buyers the option to build the custom home of their dreams. New construction is also available in newly-created neighborhoods like Valley View and the Brandtwood Subdivision.
