Welcome to Dayton!

Welcome to the third edition of the Greater Dayton Relocation & Newcomer Guide. We are excited to bring you this unique publication in partnership with the Home Builders Association of Dayton. It’s a valuable resource for those moving to our region, and a great way for current residents to reacquaint themselves with all the wonderful attractions the Miami Valley has to offer.

The Guide and its digital companion have seven special sections: History, Entertainment, Housing, Economic Development, Military, Education and Health Care. Each offers new and current residents invaluable information about our region. In addition, the HBA of Dayton has provided us with an inside look at the perks of building a new home here in Dayton.

The Greater Dayton Relocation Guide serves a 12-county area in Western Ohio. There is always someplace new to explore in each of the counties. I look forward hearing your stories about new places you’ve found to explore. Please email me at so we can learn more about what makes the Miami Valley great.

Here’s to the exciting growth in our region!

Welcome to the Dayton Region!

As builders, we know the house you choose to live in becomes a home—where your family and friends gather to celebrate, where traditions and milestones are cemented into your memory and now, more than ever, they have become our sanctuaries, schools, gyms and offices. That’s why we are excited with our partnership between the Home Builders Association of Dayton and Dayton Magazine to produce the Greater Dayton Relocation & Newcomer Guide for 2022.

The Greater Dayton Relocation & Newcomer Guide is the primary source of much needed information for new and relocating Daytonians. Both the printed magazine and its accompanying digital offerings provide opportunities for people to learn more about the community and businesses that make up the Dayton region. An easy-to-use reference tool, the Greater Dayton Relocation & Newcomer Guide covers topics such as neighborhood information, new construction and communities, education options, health care and attractions throughout the Dayton region.

Our hope is that people moving to the area—and those who already live here—will discover the opportunities and attractions that make this region such a great place to live. Whether you’re a local or you are relocating, this publication says, “Welcome Home” and as your local builders, we not only build your house, but we build communities.

Please take an opportunity to page through this guide, experience all that the Dayton region has to offer and utilize the services of our members ( As the residential construction experts throughout the Dayton area, when you are ready for your next project, you can have the confidence that HBA members adhere to the industry’s highest standards, and are trustworthy and professional.
