Not sure why you shared all of that information. I could not care less that you are from Long Island. I could not care less that you are college graduates. I could not care less about the mountain views. I could not care less about the supposed up and coming area. I was simply letting elnina know that the house is appropriately priced because people who live in higher cost of living areas often think that there's something wrong with cheaper houses in lower cost of living areas because they can't wrap their minds around why the house is so cheap. Even if you were an unemployed high school drop out, I'd think it was neat that you were excited about this house and it's retro kitchen. I might even think that was hipper of you. So there's no need to get pretentious with me.

Not sure how I offended you. I just was stating the fact that I left a suburb to live here. When you say a "low income area" it conjures some negative images.

It sounds like a ghetto. And we are interested in restoring homes in this area. We are not interested in being slumlords as many out of state people seem to be. Why so nasty"?

Not to most Pennsylvanians. Newcomers often make that mistake. It's like they never heard of the working class.

Because you felt the need to be strangely defensive over an ACCURATE description of that neighborhood.

Hi, well I am a Contractor with 15years of experience. It would be much more practical to remodel the basement. The end result will be much roomier . You would need to go through engineering to work in the Attic.
