DH and I are probably heading your way in the next couple of months and I was wondering if you had any ideas on where to start looking for a house. Dh will be working around the Springfield/Branson area. Right now we live in a very small town. But we have lived in a larger city (Columbia) and loved it. We want someplace no too far away from a that area, where we could find like minded folks, AP-ers, home schoolers. We like the thought of buying a home that needs some work (dh does construction now). But are really open. So, any thoughts on where to begin looking?
