I grew up and lived in Suffolk County and still have connections. Best school districts as follows: Huntington, Woodbury, Cold Spring Harbor, Dix Hills, etc. As a guideline, the easy way is to go by the price of homes. The more expensive the homes are, the better the school district; the lower the prices of homes, the lower the qualify of school districts.

In the New York City suburbs (Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland and New Jersey) it's all about the quality of the public school districts. In ALL the suburbs, homes are priced according to the ranking of school districts. Schools that are highly ranked and excellent quality are where all the expensive homes are. Schools that are ranked low and need improvement are where all the cheap homes are.

Unfortunately this is what makes buyers angry. Everybody wants to live in the good school districts but can't afford it. If this is you, you will need to compromise and sacrifice like everybody else does. What we did was buy a co-op so our kids could be educated in a top school district.

Only 5 or so ranches in North Brentwood have closed for over $280,000. Depending on the condition of the house, I would say the $275,000 value is pretty fair.

In Brentwood, on the average, you should figure on taxes of about 6,000 to 7,000 per year.

The average credit score is in the upper 600's. I'm assuming you know your score, if not you can find out by going on-line and going to Experien, Transunion or Equifax. You can also apply for a mortgage through a mortgage broker and bank and having them run a credit check and tell you the scores and your options. If you can not get a mortgage based on your scores and or debt, there a credit repair companies and also local non-profit consumer organizations(such as CCCS) that can guide you toward financial fitness. ... more
