Hi Manahoy City residents. I am from Pennsylvania and am familiar with this area. I have read a few posts regarding Manahoy. Some have been very mixed in appeal. I think there may be some incorrect info being stated. This place is awesome for the right person! This city has the feel of old fashion USA. My brother in law moved there after his divorce to my sister. They say it is depressed. OK, which area in this country is not depressed. This is old Anthracite coal mining area. Awesome!!!! These homes are rather old. Even better than Awesome!!! Quality beyond compare. I am from a large city in Pennsylvania. Awful! Crime, Murder, pedophilia, filth, vermin, rudeness, rape, down right not a value in the bunch. And people say this area is 50/50. OK, industry may not be booming in Manahoy this is great for retirees, disabled that have a little money to invest in a beautiful area. Is greed and making money in a large Metropolis Utopia? I have been there, and I did all that. I have lived a pace of 20 hour workdays that nearly killed me. Oh, the pace there is slow. Awesome, bring it on! Property values are low, and yes there is a reason however if you intend to move to this place there are inspectors that generally give a decent objective opinion of what the property needs. No one walks into a prospective purchase of an old home and expects move in condition. A lot of these homes are over a hundred years old. This in and of itself should be attracting the "historical Society" and bringing property values up! Oh, and it will. Just wait until we get out of the slump and you won't be able to touch one of these building for less than $200,000K. Yes, they need new plumbing, new wiring, new heating, what are you expecting? Some probably need to be gutted. Basement floor is dirt well masons do a wonderful job fixing that. This sleepy little town will one day be a untouchable investment. Get 'em while they are hot. And no, I am not a real estate agent or investor just someone who is on there way to looking to buy in Manahoy City. You never know what you got 'til you leave it. Investing is holding on to a commodity until a renasaince occurs. However, it takes investing and a love for what you have to get there. No, this town is not perfect but neither was the very wealthy community in Montgomer County in which I lived where the crime was hidden from the public view. Oh, and the beautiful Mansions and Oh, the heinous murders that had to be divulged. Tell me if you live in Utopia because I am moving there. I you have no hidden crime, murders, or drugs you are delusional. We are people, we are animals with a frightening ability to do dreadful things all over this great country. So before you start down grading an area know your facts and do research and speak with the "Chamber of Commerce." also residents and residents in nearby communities it is hard work. We do it for coporate America, now do it for yourselves so the decision is the correct one. NO ONE person will have the same opinion that is why it is called an opinion. Judge only for yourself lest you be judged incorrectly. I think I am moving to Manahoy City where my brother in law is. Can't wait! And I am thrilled. Any comments are welcome.
