BSB asked:
Hello everyone, my wife and I found a townhouse in Ives Estates (ZIP CODE 33179) that we really liked. However, not sure about the area. Any advice? Our price range is 300K-330K for a 3bd/2.5bath house.

We are planning to live in the house for 7-10 years and start a family. Is this a good investment? What are the major pros and cons?…
