walkability. I'm looking for a town that has strong schools, walkability, restaurants, some shopping, looking for buying a home that will have property taxes under $9,000. Moving from a city in NC that is family friendly, walkable, lots of restaurants and shopping all with much lower property taxes. In order to move up and be by family need to find someplace that can have this to please the financial minded hubby.

You don't say your total budget, but with those taxes in mind I would look in Summit, Madison or Chatham New Jersey. These towns are walkable and have lower taxes than the towns in Essex County. Good luck with your search.
