To not be that concerned about moving close to a traveller site?

Me and DH are looking to buy our 1st home. The best house on the market in our price range is about 200metres away from an established mobile home, traveller site.

I'm not bothered, if you look up the crime statistics then it is not higher in that area...the house is cheap, maybe because it is near there.

I don't know, DH thinks I'm mad to want to move there, am i over looking something?

maybe go and talk to the other neighbours?

OP, The problem is not "Do you mind living there". The problem is that when you come to sell it, will it be hard to sell because of its location.

Unless you're planning to stay in the house until you die, then it's not a great buy. You should be looking for the worst house in the best area, not vice versa.

Just a gentle reminder about our talk guidelines

if you have checked the crime statistics for the area and you are happy, go for it.

I disagree, go for the best house in the worst street and then you can lord it over the neighbours.
