Hi Derek,
I work as a Buyer's Agent in Orange County. Each area has a lot to offer and I can provide you with the resources to make your decision. What is best for one person may not be best for another but having someone to help you through the various web resources and to set up house hunting tours can help. I always tell my buyer clients to drive around any area they are interested in during different times of the day and to speak with some of the residents to give them a feel for the area. I have a blog that may provide you with local information along with house buying tips. Please visit it for more information on how to pick your search area. If you are not working with a Buyer's Representative I would love to meet with you and to be the one to help you find your new home.

Some basic points to consider: the shorter the commute, the higher the price.Thus, a home in the Monroe /Woodbury area for example, will be a bit more expensive than a similar home in Middletown,Minisink,Pine Bush or Newburgh. Even a difference of just 10 minutes can add many thousands of dollars to the price. On the other hand, the home s with the easier commute seem to be looked at first by buyers. As far as school districts are concerned Orange County has some of the finest schools in the East and you should go to the NYS website to get detailed information on schools and any crime statistics for that matter.All of Orange County in my opinion, has a very rich,ethnically diverse population.
If you're not already working with a REALTOR, contact me...I would be happy to work with you
