You are very wise in considering this transition to Milford. Although Fairfield is a beautiful town itself, Milford is equally as nice, and boasts many of the same amenities as Fairfield for a lot less. For example, Milford offers the same Metro North train line to NYC, the beaches are just as nice and best of all, Milford is New Haven County. Because it's a part of New Haven County, you will no longer have to pay Fairfield County taxes.
Now is also a fantastic time to purchase a new home because home prices are very low. In addition, current mortgage rates are historically low, so there are plenty of great deals to be had.
