    In search of a 3 bedroom...or 2 bedroom that could be made a 3 bedroom house on at least a 1/2 acre lot. Some of the older neighborhoods in Springfield have lots that size. Outside of town is fine too. My ideal would be 1 acre or close to it. A mobile home in good condition is fine. A house that needs some cosmetic work is fine....no structural damage. I don't mind installing new flooring since if there is carpet it is going to get removed anyhow.

    I will need to commute to Springfield several times a week so I'm not looking for something over about a 45 minute drive at most.

    About 45 minutes drive to the edge of Springfield is maximum. I'd prefer closer. I'm likely going to be going in for medical treatment 3 days a week.

    Texex, I was just finding out where would be ok! LOL!

    I would think you would be happy with Mount Vernon, maybe Republic, or to the east of Springfield, Marshfield. Lower crime rate and easy access to Springfield. PepsiBoy has a good suggestion!
