You should get a very nice home in one of the nicer neighborhoods for that price. I am seeing nice looking colonials and ranches on Realtor.com. To get a better idea of what your budget will get you there, sign up for one of the major realtor websites and check listings through them. Jay

Depends on what you are looking for in terms of amenities close by, proximity to the beach, acreage, etc. Lordship is wonderful, but it's a little bit of a drive for groceries, services, etc. That's what makes it so peaceful though of course. The north end tends towards larger lots. Walking distance to the train tends to mean more traffic. The Historic District has some truly beautiful areas.

With prices having fallen around 10% over the past 2 years, $400K (IMO) could buy a modest-to-nice home in Oronoque, or Main St/Putney. James Farm Rd & Warner Hill Rd have a few homes on sale (or did, a couple of months ago) and my guess is some of them would be in the $400-450K range.
