Our price in Eire are very reasonable, in fact I currently have a home listed under $100K from a seller who will just be graduating from LECOM. They will make a small profit after three years which is not that bad given they built equity for three years instead of renting! I think if you were to buy a reasonably priced home in a decent area you should be fine. I'd love to help you if you are interested. I been selling homes in Erie for over 20 years and I love to help folks get into a home!
If you are interested give me a call or email and I would be happy to send you a list of homes with your criteria; firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-440-7085
