Relocation

Relocating to Shaker Heights is less about moving than it is about coming home. Residents share in the delights of community for which Shaker is known -- walking on miles of sidewalks under a canopy of trees, nods and smiles as dog walkers pass, toddlers waving to pals from stroller to stroller.

Since 1912, the City of Shaker Heights has been a model suburban community -- carefully planned, beautifully conceived, maintained through top notch services and composed of an extraordinarily diverse and talented population. People are drawn here by a compelling sense of connectedness to one’s neighbors, outstanding schools, architecturally distinguished housing options, proximity to both downtown and outlying areas, and the City’s natural beauty. They relish a cosmopolitan, multicultural lifestyle that is both affordable and accessible.

 Housing Options

To Buy

Shaker Heights is known for a spectrum of architecturally beautiful homes.

To Rent

Although Shaker is primarily a community of homeowners, there are apartments and one- and two-family rentals.

Most apartment buildings are located along Van Aken Boulevard, Warrensville Center Road, North Moreland and Kemper Roads.

Two-family rentals are scattered throughout the City with the largest concentration on Winslow Road, a vibrant one-mile stretch of two-family homes designated a historic district by the Shaker Heights Landmark Commission. These properties are often listed for rent on major real estate websites.

Single family rentals are available, but not plentiful. The best resource for locating these is also major real estate websites.
