Good areas are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider further researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you...

It is an awesome place to live and raise children. First of all the schools are amazing. Class sizes are low so it is like sending your children to a private school. The children are able to get a lot of attention. Most people in this area value education. The village offers so very much such as private beaches for community members, a golf course, tennis courts, ice-skating rink, a village center where you can rent rooms for a party and a year round farmer's market too. You get a lot for your money here and the taxes are not crazy like many other areas on Long Island.

There are a few communities that offer similiar amenities to the Village of Port Jefferson. It all depends on what your needs and wants are. Many factors such as school district, class size, proximity to transportation, etc, can affect where one buys. As a local agent in the area, I will be happy to send you pertinent information to help narrow down your choices.

There are three different school districts in Port Jefferson: Comsewogue, Port Jefferson, and Three Village. There are currently 61 available listings in Port Jefferson with an average listing price of 674,444. Over the past six months, 14 homes were sold with an average selling price of $439,393. There are websites that give you the ratings of the individual school districts, crime rates, etc., but we are not allowed to opine on these issues. I live and work in the area so if you're seriously considering a move here (or anywhere else on Long Island), I would be happy to assist you. References available upon request. Good luck with everything!
