Just Moved: Tashique & Lennox

How much does a home-to-call-your-own go for in these neighborhoods? This couple gives us the lowdown and a sneak peek at their new place.

Location: Jamaica

Setup: 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

Style: Town house

Square Feet: 1,478 square feet

Price Paid: $135,000

The Deal: $91/sq. ft.

When did you start looking (month/year)? November 2009

When did you close on your new home? May 2010

How many homes did you visit and look at? We looked at about seven houses, and in the end we had to decide between two.

What was the hardest part about finding your new home? The location. Lennox lives in New York and I live in Jamaica, so deciding where to settle was hard. In the end, Jamaica is home to the both of us, so that’s why we bought that house.
