My wife and I are looking to purchase our next home. Just moved to Omaha a few months ago and are getting a feel for different areas. We are starting to feel like we are just not going to find everything we want in one place. We have been looking around the Bennington area a lot and seem to like the country feel without being to far from shopping and the highway. We have been looking at builders and have found that celebrity homes are pretty much all over. My wife has read some bad reviews about them and also some that say their quality is going up. Honestly we are looking for a min of 3 bed 2 bath the the space to maybe turn a basement into a forth bedroom down the line. Any insight on the Bennington area or builders that can stay below $200,000 would be appreciated. Is it crazy to try to find a good house in a great school zone for that price? Thanks

Are you looking to have a new home? If you're not dead set on that idea, you might look more north of Omaha. The Ponca Hills area might have what you are looking for.

Happygolucky with the greatly exaggerated gif again.

Why dont you seriously update it instead of trying to make 80% of Omaha appear to be crime riddled?

The vast majority of the violent crime is east of 60th, mostly east of 48th and in pockets.

Your yellow blanket is actually quite offensive. Why would you try to paint such a picture? What are you trying to prove (again, when you admittedly know better).

Happy is just having a little fun trying to mess with us. He knows better, as do we.

The OP is looking in the Bennington area, which is west of 144th and not in the danger zone. Their biggest safety concerns will be more car related and obesity related.

I should take a little of Bellevue off, but the rest stays as is.
