We're in the market for a new house, and we sort of have it narrowed down to two houses. One is a 1951 colonial in Lyndhurst (nicer area, closer to work, more neighborhood feel, older home) and the other is a 2003 colonial in Northfield Village. We live in Woodmere (right by Beachwood) currently, so we are pretty used to the Lyndhurst feel. The Lyndhurst home is in good shape, but has some issues that some older homes do (electrical is not up to code). The Northfield home is very attractive because it's in perfect shape, and won't require as much maintenance. We plan on selling in about 7 or 8 years. I'm just not in love with the area. We have done a lot of looking and have come to the realization that no matter what we will have to compromise. If we live in Lyndhurst, we will get a nicer area, but an older house that's probably not as nice, whereas in Northfield it's a much nicer house, but we will compromise on the area. Both are around the same price but we do know that Northfield sellers have to sell it pretty soon (at least that's what their realtor told us). Any thoughts?
