We work with a lot of buyers relocating to the area and get asked this question a lot. The answer, however,  is rather complicated.

You see, as real estate agents, we are not allowed to be biased about certain areas. So we cannot tell you what city is best, what subdivision is best, or what street is the best. But is really doesn't matter.

You see, the question is so subjective. What is really meant by "best" anyway? If you ask 10 people who live in Solon what street is "the best", you will likely get 10 different answers. Most people are probably biased about the street they live on, so getting a good answer to this question is difficult.


If you don't know anything about Solon, I totally understand you wanting to know what areas are popular. No one wants to make a mistake and end up living somewhere that won't make them happy.

So the most important thing is for you to define what you want. Do you want to live on 1 or more acres? Do you want to live near the highway or walking distance to schools? Do you want to live on a cul-de-sac? Do you want to live in the North, Central, or South part of town? How much do you want to spend?

Sometimes, defining the type of property you want will dictate which "streets" you end up looking at.


While we must be unbiased, we have lived here for 11 years and can certainly make your life easier.

We can tell you about certain areas of the city and the different developments. We can tell you when they were built, who the builder was, and specifics about what you will expect to find in the homes themselves.

We can tell you which streets are cul-de-sacs, if that is something you prefer. We can tell you which direction a certain street faces.  We can even send you a list of homes available so you can get feel for the homes.

We can also refer you to people who live in specific developments. While we aren't allowed to give our opinion to you, you are welcome to ask these folks anything you want.

When all is said and done, we can provide valuable assistance in finding the street that's best for you. And that will end up being the best street in Solon.
