    This is really a tough one.  If A wasn’t on a busy street, I would pick A for sure.  B has some nice qualities, but just from your description I would pick C, because it seamed in the best location, it sounds like this property includes more actual space around the property, and wasn’t on a busy street.

    I stopped reading about A at busy street. 1 car garage and train tracks kill C for me. I’d go with B, lower end of budget, more space, everything sounds lovely.

    Coming from someone who lived in a 3 bedroom, 1 bath house I stopped reading after that. Don’t do it. Definitely go with house B or keep looking.

    House B for sure.  Stay away from train tracks if you can.  Not just the potential noise factor for you but if you want to eventually sell this house, train tracks tend to negatively impact your resale value.  The hoppy shop in House B sounds awesome!

    I’d pick B.  The busy street for A and the train tracks on C would probably kill those for me.

    Home C is a no.  1 bath is not going to cut it as your daughter grows up.  It has only 1 car garage and no dining room.  It’s going to be too small for you!  You say it’s a great location, but living next to train tracks in not a good location.

    Home A and B are about even for me.  It’s going to be about which you like better once you actually tour them.  If I read that correctly, it sounds like B is a 4 bedroom 2.5 bath, while A is a 4 bedroom 2 bath.  They both have hardwood floors, are move in ready, recently remodeled kitchen, and a 2 car garage.  Sounds like the backyard is good in both.

    I probably lean more towards the fully renovated house, especially because it’s at the low end of your budget.  All new electric, plumbing, and HVAC is going to save you THOUSANDS of dollars.  Nothing will need to be repaired for 20+ years.  But Home A is bigger and maybe you like the layout better.  I wouldn’t make a decision until you’ve seen them.  But honestly, Home C doesn’t even seem worth your time.
