We have a huge decision to make soon. (I think I may have touched on this a few weeks ago here, but "the future" is opening up rapidly so I'd like your thoughts.) Basically we were about to buy another house in D.C. like the one we're renting out now. Good area, relatively high rent, great property manager. But now there's a nice neighborhood a bit closer to here with great home prices and sale signs going up. It's a quiet neighborhood, good neighbors from what I can tell, and the homes are ranch style selling for $80k or $90k instead of $400k. Would you WANT to own like three homes on the same street? I won't for this question consider the property taxes we talked about in the other thread. And these would have a manager like the other house, so for this question, just simply would you choose this over one home if actual purchase price for 3 or 4 is the same as 1 home in a much larger/sought out area?
