Old Neighborhood? New Community? Where Should You Buy?

My children’s idea of compromise is easy. If they both have their hearts set on playing with a toy, they will both agree, after some hemming and hawing, to take turns with a toy. One child will play with a toy for 20 minutes. Then the other child will get a turn. Easy peasy....
