We are planning on buying our first house and I will be starting my daycare biz there. We're thinking 1700-2100 sq feet, preferably with a medium or large suburban yard (1/5 - 1/4 acre). The issue is that we will either cone across a great house (indoor square feet) or one with a great yard and ok house. We have a dog that needs to run and i want this to be our long-term home. Eventually will do a swingset. Fron the get-go I want to build raised garden beds to grow veggies.

Here are 3 houses I really like. Which do you think would be best for daycare?

I like #1. Just an instinct, no particular reason. I see #2 is a short sale, those can be tricky, but I liked that one also. Winter Park is nice, my folks lived in Casselberry for a few years. Is Paco's restaurant still there?

Those are all nice houses! Good luck with the search! I almost bought a historic home near Lake Eola years ago, couldn't take O Town traffic.

I would choose #1 too but it is a contingency sale and they're taking back up offers so most likely #1 isn't even an option. Next I would choose 3 or 4. Short sales can be complicated. However, #4 is part of an HOA which I'm personally against so i would have to choose #3 if I had to choose one of those 4.
