Just some thoughts..and having been in this situation lots of sympathy.
Best of luck in your decision
Also have your agent compare the appreciation of the 2 neighborhoods. It won't predict the future but it could give you an indication of current trends. Does the commute factor in? How about the taxes?
I have my buyers make a list of the pros and cons of each house. One may offer the appliances and the other doesn't, one has a deck or new windows, etc. It may help show which home will require more money once you move in.
