We are looking at some of the homes for sale in Plum and Churchill, and they are priced reasonably. What are some thoughts about these areas? There are a lot of homes for sale. Is that an area of concern?

Churchill is in sad shape, and parking is a real problem. Take the tour on Google Earth. Street photo's all the way.
Plum I don't know.

Churchill is an alright area - but it's in Woodland Hills School District.

It is true that Churchill is in a bad school district. However, I think the district just returned to neighborhood elementary schools. This should make the area more appealing. The funny thing is that half of Churchill is much nicer than Plum. Basically, everything east of Beaulah Road is very nice. Nicer than anything in Plum.

I have no idea about the parking problem. I used to live there years ago and you weren't allowed to park on the street overnight. I think the law is still on the books and still enforced.

Just an aside, but the Propel charter schools are a nice alternative to the traditional public schools in Woodland Hills (they have one in Turtle Creek and are opening a second in Braddock Hills to meet demand).

I work in Churchill and while there is nothing to do here, there are some awesome houses in the area. Not really sure how this area could be considered to be in sad shape.

My wife and I have friends who lived in Churchill for many years, but have since moved to Fox Chapel. They had a very difficult time selling their house in Churchill, primarily because of the school district's poor reputation.

Great houses, lousy school district. I grew up in the 60's when Churchill Area High School was one of the best and brightest. Not so much now with it being Woodland Hills, great football team, but who cares about that? Not me.
