My wife has a job interview this week for a position in Syracuse. As we would be moving to the area, which is unknown to us save from Syracuse University, we are looking for a decent place to live (3/2 with basement) for under $120K as we will be under a tight budget until I can either locate employment or start a business (bagel/artisan bread shop, at present, is my idea). Even if it's a place that needs minor TLC, we are open to it. We are willing to look within a 45 minute commute of Syracuse.

Neighbourhood suggestions are greatly appreciated as the area is unknown to us aside from internet searches. Have found a couple of houses of interest, but I think they may be too far as they are in Seneca Falls. It's really hard to tell via Realtor.com.

Looking for a decent high school as well for our youngest daughter who has mild Asperger's as she will enter high school in the fall. (Our move may be sometime between Sept-Oct).

Any ideas/assistance is greatly appreciated as we are moving back to the States from having been in Canada for her job for the last 4.5 years.

Thank you.

Look into the East Syracuse-Minoa SD, which is known for providing good Special Ed services, is a solid/good district overall and isn't too far from Syracuse University. I'd say to look into the Park Hill/Parkwood, Franklin Park and older parts of the Fremont areas of the district.

In terms of a Bagel shop, I'd say that anywhere on the Eastside of the city into DeWitt and even the Fayetteville-Manlius area may work. Since Pickles closed(a former Jewish/Kosher deli and bagel shop) closed a while back, there really hasn't been anything to fill that void.

Village of Bville is great, and you would be able to find something in your price range right in the village for sure. Bville is a great walkable little village just west of Syracuse and offers a close knit community with lots to do - restaurants, bars (and even a tasting room for a local brewery) all within walking distance, in addition to the public library, many places of worship, bowling alley, and Paper Mill Island, which is an island music venue right at Lock 24 on the Erie Canal.

In fact, there is a house on the market right now that might work (though only 1 bathroom - link below)), but plenty more will come on the market in the coming months.

PM me if you have any additional questions. Would personally love a little bagel shop in the village too!!!! In addition, Bville schools are great, and I know the Director of Special Education very well (he's my neighbor) and he is just marvelous.

Just to give an idea of where these neighborhoods in the ES-M school district are located, Park Hill is the area north of James Street/west of Kinne Street and south of Exeter Street. Parkwood is the area north of Exeter Street and west of Kinne Street. Franklin Park is the area north of Kirkville Road and east of Kinne Street. Older parts of Fremont are north of Route 290 and south of the railroad tracks on both sides of Fremont Road. You can view these areas on the map here: https://www.trulia.com/NY/East_Syracuse/13057/

You may find something solid/decent in either one of the villages(East Syracuse and Minoa) as well.

After viewing this post: http://www.city-data.com/forum/48675210-post7.html in terms of a bagel shop and besides the good B'ville suggestion, for the other areas mentioned, these areas of the Eastside may work(if there is space): https://westcottsyr.com/org/wna/

The B.I.D. » Crouse-Marshall (a Brueggers Bagels left the area a couple of years ago or so and that space is still available)

In DeWitt, perhaps this area of East Genesee Street near the Orvilton/DeWittshire neighborhoods: https://goo.gl/maps/ZGardNuzKGK2

For the Fayetteville-Manlius area, either one of the villages could work, but each have businesses that would offer potential competition.

Say if you did decide on going with a home in the ES-M district, perhaps the Eastwood neighborhood of Syracuse nearby could work along James Street.

I thought about the villages of East Syracuse and Minoa, but I'm not sure if either one would be a definite good location, but it would be a different option for East Syracuse if put on Manlius Street(its Main Street) and Minoa just needs more commerce in general. The latter is a pretty sleepy and quiet/bedroom type of village. Both came about due to the railroad.

Villages such as Liverpool and North Syracuse could be a couple of other options as well.

There's this as well: https://www.bizquest.com/business-fo...w9UzM0Jm89MQ==

Or perhaps this space: 7 Salina Street, Baldwinsville, NY | Byrne Dairy Former | Retail Space For Sale by Pyramid Brokerage

Or this place: 325 West Manlius St, East Syracuse, NY, 13057 - Restaurant Property For Sale on LoopNet.com

We've been researching houses on Realtor.com. Have found a few in the following areas: Cicero, Fayetteville, Fairmount, Oneida Inside, Geddes, Verona, Lenox/Canastota, Camillus, and Schroeppel.

I will check out Baldwinsville and East Syracuse as well per comments. Thank you.

All those areas you listed are either nice or mostly nice except Oneida Inside. Its mostly a Section 8 wasteland. Oneida Outside is very nice.

Canastota is mixed with the downtown being a dump and the outside being very nice.

Oneida doesn't have ideal Thruway access, which you will need. Its not aweful but its several miles on slow roads. Canastota has a Thruway entrance so huge plus for you.

Verona is very nice if you want rural. Verona has a casino and a couple gas stations and a liquor store. Verona is kinda the honey hole for small mid century ranch houses in CNY. One HUGE plus of Verona is you can get city water and sewer and not be in a city, thank you Oneida Nation. Verona has a Thruway entrance and is quickly gotten to by a series of fast and well maintained highways.

Here is a house in Verona. I've not been inside but last Winter in my wanderings I drove by this house and it was fully gutted. Down to the studs. So I been keeping an eye out for it. Central AC, at least some new windows, granite countertops, paved driveway flat as a tabletop, nice yard. About 3 minutes in heavy traffic to the Thruway. If this house was in a normal state it would be triple the price.

A note on those taxes. I'm sure your aware that taxes are brutal in NY and Verona is not immune. But I'm guessing that number will go much higher when its reappraised after sale.

NY no longer gives exemptions through your township so I'd say add 400-450 a month to any mortgage calculator your using.

There are still exemptions, they are just administered differently. https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/exemption/index.htm

Taxes also vary by town/school district and even neighborhood.
