Thank you so much for replying back. I thoroughly enjoy looking up real estate online. From time to time I will look up homes in Kansas, as I grew up in St. Marks. It's a very small community West of Wichita. I've been out here in Oregon/Washington for nearly 14 years. It has been my hope to return to Kansas to live in a small town once again. My husband & I recently adopted 5 year old twin boys. We want more than anything to get them out of the Portland metropolitan area, where there is much crime and gang activity. My husband is in law enforcement and I am an RN in the county jail: thus, how we met.
I fell in love with the outside of the house on Chestnut, or it's potential. We are hoping to be able to buy this house, fix it up and use it as our family's 2nd home, until my husband can retire in 3 or 4 years. We make several trips a year to KS, already, visiting family and friends. It would be nice to have our own place to stay. Most of my family lives in Wichita, Cheney, Peck, and Newton.
Thank you all for your help. I will surely keep you posted.
