Paving the way: Solon, Ohio was one of the first cities to use a zoning plan in its development.
Paving the way: Solon, Ohio was one of the first cities to use a zoning plan in its development.

Solon, OH, is located southeast of Cleveland and is a suburb of around 23,000 residents. The town was rated as the "Third Best Place to Live in the United States" by Money Magazine in 2011. Solon (pronounced Sew-lun) is known for its easy access to highways, its wide selection of new single-family homes and as the headquarters of several corporations.

Moving to Solon

Places to rent in Solon, Ohio run the gamut from traditional apartment-style condos to luxury rental homes. The population in Solon exploded during the 1990's, and much of the housing stock here is newer. Strict zoning keeps Solon's neighborhoods insulated from the city's less attractive commercial and industrial communities.

The majority of homes, apartments and condos in Solon use natural gas for heat. Most of the time, the heat bill is paid by the renter. Occasionally, heat will be included in the price of studio apartments to rent, but most of the time, trash removal, water and sewer are the only utilities included in the rent. As Solon is located at the edge of the northeast Ohio snow belt, making sure that your apartment or house rental has adequate insulation is a good idea.

Before setting out to find your new home, be sure to locate all of the necessary paperwork for a smooth rental process: copies of your ID, a credit report, letters of reference and a nice pretty security deposit will help you secure a spot.
