My husband and I and our 2 year old need to move out of PA and into MD because he works in DC. I have been doing extensive research online on housing. I like Arnold and Annapolis, however I didn't find anything I like in the 300k range. I found many houses I liked for 300k in Pasadena which seems so close to these areas. Why is it so much cheaper? I looked on a school rating websites and the schools seem to be rated well. Any insights please! I am looking for a nice place to raise my children.

Mostly blue collar middle class areas. Some rougher patches but as long as you are within the Chesapeake High School feeder system boundaries you should be alright.

It has a rural feel to it. Some of the homes on the tributaries are nice.

I believe $300k buys a lot of home in arnold/annapolis.

Pasadena seems to encompass a pretty large area. I am "Pasadena", but show up as "Green Haven" on a map. The neighborhoods vary very wildly, and I have found a large mix-match of houses even in the same neighborhood. There is one street, 214th I think, which looks like W. VA backwoods on one end, and then nice current-model homes on the other, crazy. I would rate Pasadena overall as a nice place to live, but you really need to check out the neighborhood you are looking to move in to.
