Seeing a fair amount of homes similar to the above recently sold in Ben Avon area. Yard looks ok but could be deceiving.

That lot is about .15 acre. If you can do that, you are good to go. I stand corrected....saw about 15 homes sold in new your price range for Ben Avon in the past year. :-)

One of my friends has two kids that went to Avonworth and they have done well. The other sent their kids to Central Catholic.

I guess I have an inflated opinion about home prices in Ben Avon because I like the area so much! Lol.

Right, I can settle for a smaller lot if the layout of the yard is useable. For example, a 0.2 acre lot that’s mostly flat, had room for a nice garden and some space to fence in for a dog to run around is totally fine and better than a 0.5 acre lot that is mostly ravine. And yes I’m pretty impressed by the housing stock in the area! I wish areas like greenfield had a similar housing style and less cheap vinyl.

True depending on how important school rankings are in their overall priorities. Honestly though for the other things they want I think that price range would be tight in those areas anyway. Hampton and FC could work but also that price range just might take some time for the right home to come up. I like Hampton, if I wasn't in Ben Avon I'd look there or Pine Richland though Pine to East End drive might not be great. FC would be a decent drive.

Yeah but that lot also likely appears bigger because it backs up to vacant land and the pictures might not be all their lot though no one is likely ever going to build behind. I could throw a rock to that house from mine. Most lots I in the area would likely meet what they want. My lot is larger than most but also because much is tiered and not really useable. I can only think of a few homes around here that have an extremely small useable outdoor area.
