Thanks
What town are you looking at? There's a lot of places within an hour of Des Moines. I'd consider most of Iowa (aside from a few places) to be very low crime. Grocery store chains are HyVee, which has everything you need, and Aldi. Hmmm, average 4 bed, 2 bath? Depends. Small town, probably $150K, Des Moines or some other areas would probably push that up to about $190K or so. Again, depends very much on where you live.

So sorry to hear that mama! What age are your little ones? Do you stay home during the day? If so, there's lots you can get involved with.

You can get a really, really nice house in Newton for the $200K range. It's a quiet, small, safe town.

Welcome to the area! I'm just 20-mi south of Burlington in Ft Madison. I love the midwife (Becky Winnike) of the womens' center at the Burlington hospital (Great River Medical Center) & the LC/Nurse Practitioner (wife of one of the Peds) at Burlington Peds (also in GRMC).
