The best place to start is to select a good real estate professional to help you. Someone that specializes in the areas that interest you, and that has good reviews, which you can find as you click on an agent's profile. The central market you are seeking has many wonderful opportunities within your budget. I lived many years near Broadway/ Swan, and would like the opportunity to assist you.
Please feel free to read my reviews and give me a call if you would like to talk. I am certain I can help!
