Smile Want to move to Maryland from NY

Hello all,

I'm thinking about moving to Maryland from New York. I am a nurse with 9 yrs of experience. I currently work in an out-patient clinic and would like to continue in that path. I'm planning a trip to Maryland in August. I'm not sure where to start. I'm looking for a safe and unexpensive town to live close to a major city. Can someone help me please?

Thank you in advance,

Kingsdaughter

Hey K.D. - Frederick is a small city, with Frederick Memorial Hosptial. The hospital is within the city limits with decent housing nearby. It's close to a cute downtown area and about 45-50 min. from DC.

Default Want to move to Maryland from NY

Thanks for your input Iscalder and Tim Rankin!
To answer your question lscalder, I would like to get a condo between $200,000 to $250,000 in a descent area. One of my friends lives in Silver Springs and it told me that the houses are as expensive as NY.

KD, Tim is right about Frederick. And Carroll County is also a great place to live, and you're within an hour of Baltimore even with traffic; more like 40 mins without it. Westminster is a nice town, but it doesn't have a big of a downtown as Frederick does, or as many of the cool little shops and cafes. Regardless, if you're an experienced nurse, jobs should be no trouble anywhere. Good luck!

You may want to think about somewhere between Baltimore and D.C. so you have a vast array of hospitals and outpatient clinics to choose from. Howard County, Anne Arundel County - there are condos available in your price range.

I'm moving back to Annapolis. You should look there. My friend got in to condos that the city bought back from section 8, rehabbed them and are selling, might be in your range. Can't remember the name of the development, it's near RIVA Road, Eastport Port and Truxton Park. I saw them when they were in phase one (All sold out) They look good. The Pat Sajak hospital( whatever the name, yeah - that Pat Sajak - is in Parole off RTE 50 east. Just adding my 2 CTS

Default riderwood maryland

Riderwood is a great choice of places to live in Maryland.
Very safe and the people are so friendly.
There are several hospitals within a 10 mile radius.
GBMC, ST. Joe's, Hokpins, just to name a few.
If you have children the schools are terrific.
The blue ribbon schools help protect your investment
A great time to buy in Riderwood. One neighborhood in particular with fair housing prices is village green. This is in walking distance to the elementary school, community pool, tennis courts, and park.
Great place to live and be safe. Yet only minutes to route 83 to get to the city.
Highly recommended.
