That's a no brainer to me, New York City is significantly more expensive to own a property than it is in Nassau County. When you compare the cost of property and what you get for that cost, Nassau will get you more bang for your buck. But at the end of the day, where do you want to live? Perhaps you search in both locations and see what is a best fit for you. If you need a referral to a professional Realtor, I'd be happy to give a contact or two. Feel free to call or email me anytime, good luck!
