"If you are looking for a place to raise a family, the many new construction homes in the community are sure to appeal, with their amenities and generous lots. Developments have been bustling in Norman since 1981, so there are also many previously owned homes with plenty of character and mature lots to choose from. Retirees may enjoy the historic properties in Norman, many of which are very well maintained and feature detailing not easily found in today's homes.

Norman is a great market to consider if you are looking for a new home. Home to the Medieval Fair and Chocolate Festival as well as a number of other points and events of interest, Norman is a great place to live - whether you are retired, a professional, or raising young children.

Norman, Oklahoma is the largest city in Cleveland County, the third largest city in the state, and is conveniently located only 20 miles outside of downtown Oklahoma City. The city has more than 100 000 residents and about 20 000 students who reside in the city during the school year.

As the employment and business center of Cleveland County, Norman offers many job and employment opportunities. If you are interested in the Norman real estate market, you may be pleasantly surprised to find a happy confluence between affordable, attractive homes and plenty of job and business opportunities that make affording that new home very plausible.

Norman is also a dynamic place where scientific research, technological innovation, and cultural events occur. Thanks to the University of Oklahoma, which is right in the city, many of the country's best minds regularly visit the city for lectures and conferences as well as research. When you choose to buy Norman real estate, you will be buying property in a city that has a long tradition of intellectual diversity and exciting work.

The university boasts the very large and impressive Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History and the Fred Jones, Jr. Museum of Art. The Jones Museum attracted national attention in 2001 when it was given the most significant collection of impressionist art ever given to be bestowed to an American university. This collection, the Weitzenhoffer Collection, contains stunning works by Cassatt, van Gogh, Gauguin, Renoir, and Pissarro, to name just a few. Residents of Norman can view the collection in campus and the collection has also attracted many impressive art scholars to the city as well. If you have always wanted to live in a place where art is important and thriving, Norman is an excellent choice.

Norman also offers many exciting housing options. The historic downtown area offers many beautiful older homes nestled on tree-lined streets close to the OU campus. The west side of Norman has been expanding recently, offering some newer development properties and luxury homes. In this area, the Brookhaven neighborhood has attracted the most attention, with attractive townhomes, apartments, and showcase estates available for discerning home buyers. The area close to the university is also seeing some infill developments. Norman was ranked at the 40th best place to live in 2006 by Money Magazine. This gave Norman the highest ranking of any Oklahoma City."
