Hi All,
I am considering taking at job near the Aberdeen Proving Ground and wanted to get recommendations for nice, clean and notably safe neighborhoods for my family to live. I am a Chicago area girl, so a decent commute is not going to scare me. A short look has shown that a majority of places seem to be townhomes but we have no desire to live in another townhome (bad neighbor experience we are still living with). A nice suburban bordering on urban area would be preferable, but a good house in the middle of nowhere is also acceptable.

Thanks everyone

There are two questions that may help folks answer your question


1) What do you consider a 'decent commute' I know some folks that consider that to be 15 minutes. Others as an hour. Some might actually consider it longer than that but I might question their sanity :-) .


2) What price range are you comfortable with. Noit exact, but a ballpark would help.


You will probably find that increasing one will decrease the other but that is even difficult to assume because Aberdeen is between two other large metro areas that influence prices.

Hi,
1. A decent commute is 45 min- 1 hour (whether distance or traffic jams). I would prefer 30 minutes and under but understand trade-offs.

2. Around 200K

200K may be low for a single family home instead of a Townhouse.

Yep. Good luck with a 200K in the Baltimore Metro. That's really low overall. Maybe not for the middle of nowhere, but any large metro you will either be in a meh area, or a townhouse. That's low even for Townhomes in the area.
I have lived in one for a long time, but we have always had excellent neighbors. But not a fan of them either.
