Hello, I live in St Mary's which is southeast of Charles,the rule of thumb is anywhere south of Waldorf would be ok to live,having lived in southern Md. all my life St. Mary's has better atmosphere and schools. From what I hear there is also a shortage of teachers.

Good Luck!!

The Commute to Andrews would be 3-5 minutes longer than Waldorf. As far as safety, you can check the crime reports out for yourself, broken down by community, here.

I would suggest St.Mary's as well for teaching or even maybe Calvert County. Although Calvert doesn't quite have the "urban" appeal you might be looking for,but it does have quality of life for sure. St. Mary's as well can be quite rural, but the Lexington Park / California/ Hollywood and Hollywood area has grown up considerable I'm told since I left there a number of years ago.

I have a brother and his family that live in North Beach, Maryland and love the away from everything feel they have but they can be to Washington or Annapolis for entertainment or to satisify there urban wants. Just a thought.

Default Buy Vs. Rent

Everyone has shared some input and each of us have our preferences. Our area has grown considerably since our arrival in '94 and more amenities and conveniences are added to enhance our quality of life.

Our boys thrived in the Charles County Public school system in part to some awesome teachers. A schedule full of activites aided in their development as it challenged them academically, competitvely and emotionally to help prepare them for what life has to offer.

Regarding housing, renting is a great way to learn the lay of the land but with the advent of the internet one can gleen more information in a matter of hours than in years past. So while our housing remains pricey compared to other parts of the country today's market is affording opportunities that not only provide shelter, but an opportunity for financial gain.

Some interesting statistics comparing St. Mary's to Charles. YTD in 2008 through April, SM $321,915 CC $306,890. 2000 Avg. Home sales price SM $159,275, CC $158,295 and to think I had clients back then stating, it is too expensive and I'll wait for prices to drop.

Best of luck
