It's quite a complicated question as we need to take a lot of factors into account and we need to define what is your 'sensible value' means. As you might have found, house value, property tax and education (school district) always go hand in hand. Depends on the price range and type of houses you are looking for, we need to sit down to analyze and identify where will be best 'for your family'. But before we can do that, you need to consider what is most important to your family: the age of the house, or the condition of the house? Or the school district? ...
If you like, we can sit down to evaluate your situation and find out where will be the most sensible choice for 'YOU', because at the end of the day, it really depends on what you want most....

If school district is important and the budget not as big - then you might consider smaller home options
I'd be happy to help find your dream home within your budget!
Thank you very much.

It sounds like you are considering a single family home rather than a town home.
If you are a first time home buyer, there are many aspects of a home purchase & ownership that may or may not have been factored in.
Creating a running list of lifestyle, financial & commuting needs, is only 1 piece of the planning that goes into preparing for a home purchase.
A local Realtor can quickly sift through your questions, concerns and and bring to your attention, aspects that you may not be aware of or have considered.
The value of a Q&A board lies in providing information or answers on general aspects - You get the benefit of responses from many professionals.
But, when it comes to LOCAL real estate, it is best to work with 1 Local & experienced Realtor, who will design a customized strategy for you............especially if you're a 1st time home buyer & especially if you're at the initial stage of your real estate search.
Please do not hesitate to contact if you have any further questions.
