Don't let the 220 slow you down, its an easy do. I had a unisaw, finally sold it because footprint was so large, one of those things you regret forever. My opinion is hybrids run a little too much for what you get, contractors are easier to find used. Again by limiting yourself to local you are really limiting yourself and what quality you get. Some folks have mentioned fence but don't forget blade, a good blade is gonna be $100 but worth every penny of it. To get a notch above you'll need belt driven, isolates vibration. A good craftsmen belt driven with a flat top would be great, if you could get one around 3 to $400, then put on a $100 blade and add a fence system, I like the Incra models but they are expensive 5 to $700, some can be found used, but at that point you have a top notch machine with the ability to have the router mounted on the tablesaw. The blade and fence can always be transferred to another saw if you ever choose to upgrade.
You'll end up using the tablesaw much more than you probably think, you can easily justify the cost with just a few projects. Mobile base is also a must have.
