Thank you for the responses, everyone! My husband's new position will require him to be at the corporate offices in Canton daily, so Canton, or a short commute to Canton is necessary. Also, once settled in, I will be searching for a Special Education teaching position in the school district we will be residing in, or one very close in proximity.
We are realistic knowing real estate is much more costly in Mass., compared to where we live in PA. However, we need to stay within our means price-wise. With that being said, which of those towns mentioned in your responses could we find a home with 4bdrm, 2.5bath, 2 car garage, at least 2500 sq. feet, and at least .25 acre lot?
Keep in mind we have 2 young children who would love a neighborhood full of kids their age! Also, my husband and I want where we live to be family friendly, safe, and have a quaint downtown full of coffee shops, restaurants, and stores. Plus our new town must have great rated schools. Last, but not least, the price.......does a home exist, meeting all of those criterion, for under under $500K? Or, am I describing a place which doesn't exist?
Thanks in advance!!!!
