Hi Chitownmolly, my husband and I had the same question when we moved to Burlington a few years ago. We noticed that there was a large gap in quality between the low-priced homes and the higher-priced homes. In particular, there was little quality in the middle-range.
If you're still interested in a home, we are looking to sell our home on a large, beautiful lot in a beautiful neighborhood. We refurbished our home and have reduced our asking price drastically in the past few months simply because we need to sell.
Here's a link:
My best to you as you look for the right home!
