Top 6 Reasons to Move to Kent, OH

  • Notoriously famous for the May 4th National Guard shooting that claimed the life of four Kent State Students, the historic incident was memorialized in song by Crosby, Stills and Nash with the song "Ohio". However, Kent is much more than a tragic footnote in American history or popular music canon. It's a vibrant college town and a great place to call home. Kent has an estimated population of 32,345 people, some of which are comprised of Kent State University students.

  • Famous performers! Kent isn't a huge city, but it's packed with things to do. The Kent Stage, a local concert arena and city landmark, attracts world famous artists to its performance stage. Ani DiFranco has rocked out here and Glen Campbell has trotted out a few classic tunes, too. Enjoy gathering together and kicking back to great music on a weekly basis. Or go shopping along W Main St for another form of entertainment.
  • Convenient transit system! Kent has a convenient bus line that will take its riders to Cleveland or connect with stops for neighboring Summit County. If you rent to own on a bus route, it's easy to jump on a PARTA bus and get where you need to go in a short amount of time. Look for the stop on Summit Road.
  • Lots to do! A revitalized downtown area is packed with fun activities. Easy to traverse on foot, people can walk around various specialty boutiques and shops, get a hair cut, buy or rent an instrument at Woodsy's, or relax on an outside deck at Zephyr's. If you're feeling outdoorsy, take a stroll along the Cuyahoga River and play a game of spot-the-blue-heron while you're there.
  • Nice housing choices! Certain sections of Kent are packed with student housing, but the residential neighborhoods are perfect for choosing a rent to own home for setting down roots. People dig Kent and sometimes hang around after graduating from the university. So, housing is highly coveted -- which keeps property values elevated and resale value on the high end. Basically, houses in Kent are great investments. Look for housing near the University along E Summit St.
  • Education is encouraged and valued! Kent State University is the town's epicenter and the concept of valuable education is ingrained at an elementary level. There are four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school in the city. The local district is highly rated and produces an impressive amount of high school graduates. Apartments can also be found at the Eagles Landing near campus.
  • It's growing! Census estimates show the city's population has increased by more than 11 percent and that's great for a homeowner. If you choose a rent to own house in Kent, you can enjoy the benefits of knowledgeable, friendly neighbors that are amazingly supportive. The Kent community tends to carry on the sense of unity experienced in 1970 and the people here are proud of that. If you live in Kent, you'll find yourself becoming proud of it, too. Look for apartments near Al Lease Park or Smith Park in town.
