Considering Springfield...

Post by new2jax » Sun Nov 16, 2014 9:21 am

Good morning! We are a gay couple with a small child (and can't forget the two dogs) and are looking at the Springfield area to call home. Together we make around $200k but have been working off years of debt (from adoption costs, etc.) and are just now at a place where we can look at making a true investment. We can probably realistically afford up to around $500k (with renovation costs) but don't have tons to bring to the table at the moment (although by next summer that will be a different story as we are locked in a rental lease through August 2015).

We have been looking at the 1321 Walnut Street house, the 30 E. 4th Street, the 1611 Perry Street, and even the "Drew Mansion" (which I understand may be a larger undertaking than we can realistically do/afford). We are working with a realtor from Berkshire Hathaway so we are seriously considering the area.

Any thoughts/advice on the houses, etc. would be welcome.
