Rent to Own Homes in Ohio

What do James Garfield, Ulysses S. Grant, Warren G. Harding, Benjamin Harrison, William H. Harrison, Rutherford Hayes, William McKinley, and William H. Taft have in common? These eight U.S. presidents were either born or raised in Ohio, which is why the state is sometimes called the "Mother of Presidents." Although Harding, the last Ohioan to serve as president, died during his term in 1923, Ohio continues to maintain political relevance. The state typically holds its presidential primary elections in March, much earlier than most other states, making it an essential stop for early presidential campaigning.

Ohio has an excellent economy. Its GDP of over $650 billion is the seventh-largest in the country. Major industries include aerospace and defense, bioscience and health care, education, agriculture, iron and steel, and motor vehicle assembly. The state manufactured $112 billion in goods in 2018 and exported more than $50 billion to foreign countries. Nearly 700,000 of Ohio's 11,689,100 residents work in the manufacturing sector. A growing economy, affordable real estate market, and a wide variety of housing types make this state an excellent choice for people looking for rent-to-own options.
