It's impossible to think anything until we have more information.

You're moving into the most expensive housing market overall in the country. Your options are going to depend on your budget.

Do you want to rent or do you want to buy? What would be your budget for reach ? I can tell you that property taxes are cheaper in CT than in NY. .

Yes, we would need more information to help you. Off hand though I would say that you should just rent in Westchester County, probably in White Plains itself. It is a small city that has a number of rentals but be aware it is going to be pricey. Post on the New York forum's Westchester board for help there. Jay

Need budget, rent/buy, commute tolerances, home size/quality expectations, etc.

Thanks a lot!! My budget will be aprox $3000 per month for rent, the commute tolerance 45' to 1 hour. I need at least a 2 bed room house/apartment.
Thanks

I would rent in White Plains for a year. Or perhaps Larchmont, New York which has many international residents. There are many rentals. On weekends, drive around and learn the area.

I agree, no need to worry on schools yet. Get to know the area. Once you need good schools, in CT you could consider Wilton and Ridgefield within a reasonable commute to White Plains. You could even consider New Fairfield if you want a little more house for the money and don't mind the ~45 minute commute.
