If you’re looking to move into the Medina, Ohio area, you’re probably looking for more information about the area. Whether you’re wanting to know what the market trends for properties are, or how to get in touch with the local fire department, you probably don’t want to have to spend the time searching it out yourself.
It’s always nice to have resources on hand, so that you’re not scrambling for information when you actually need it. As such, we’ve put together a short list of homeowner resources for you to have on hand, to save you both time and effort.
Real Estate Resources
Buying/Selling Trends – If you’re looking to buy (or sell) a home in Medina, two great sites to get information from are realtor.com and Zillow.com, as they have comprehensive information about the market in the area. Everything from property values to the communities in the area, you find between the two sites.
Building Permits – If you’re looking to build, or possibly remodel, your new home, then you’re going to need to get a permit to do so. Go to Medina’s Building Department to get all the information you’re going to need about how to go about getting that needed permit.
Property Taxes – For all the information you’re going to need on the property taxes in the areas you’re looking to buy, check out Medina County’s tax office.
Public Utilities – For most buying in Medina, you’re going to need information on the utilities. For information on water, electricity, gas, sewer and more, you can go to Medina’s website as follows:
Business License – A license is required if you’re going to be wanting to open a business (or run one) in Medina. For more information on how to apply for and gain such a license, just visit the county website.
Parks and Recreation – If you’re looking for a nice park in the area of your dream home in Medina, or perhaps a local recreation center, then you only need to visit the Parks and Recreation website to find what you’re looking for.
Volunteer Opportunities – Volunteering is a wonderful pastime, but sometimes it can be a pain to find the best way to go about it. If you’re wanting to volunteer in Medina, we’ve got a couple resources to peruse.
Events—For those looking for upcoming events in the area, it’s always nice to have a community calendar on hand.
Police and Fire – Medina has taken a lot of precaution when it comes to serving the public and making the streets safe. Information for both the police and fire departments can be found at their main website. Of course, in the case of an emergency, you should call 911, but for non-emergency cases, you can find information on the two resources at the links below.
Schools – If you have school age children, chances are you’re wanting to know what schools are the best. Making decisions can be difficult, of course, so we’ve added some information on the school ratings in the area to help out.
When it comes to moving into a new area, you want to be prepared. Having a list of resources on hand is the beginning of that preparation. The next step is to actually find a home and make the move, and in order to do that you need to have that home inspected. If you’re moving into the Medina area and need your new home inspected, feel free to contact us. We’d love to help you out.
