Husband and I recently relocated NYC, and we're starting to think about buying a home outside the city in the next few years. I strongly prefer suburbs north of New York, because my entire family is in New England, and this would provide the easiest access for visits. Being close to my family is a top priority.
We both work in Manhattan, but we don't make Manhattan-style money. We need a starter home under 500k. What are the best, affordable places for us to start thinking about? So far we've found Tuckahoe, Eastchester, Mamaroneck, and Yonkers to seem reasonable, but I know nothing about these places other than what I've found online. What towns are we missing? I'd love to hear about some experiences of people who have lived in Metro North suburbs.
Important to us: affordable, accessible to the city, safe, single family home. Is this even possible at that price range?
