Hey folks,

I recently discovered that I am moving to the lovely city of Halifax, and wonder if there might be any input from people regarding the best area to buy a house under 400 K USD--preferably a 4 Bdrm, 3 bath, 2600 sf or more. I also am wondering which area has the best primary French immersion school, as that is important for my young children in my view (1 year old and 4 year old).

I have read a great deal about the area, but as always would be interested if any locals could offer advice/input on any subjects that may seem salient to a newcomer.

Although I lived in Halifax for three years I now live in Ontario, so am not a local. My sister lived in Dartmouth and taught at Dalhousie, though, and I visited a few times so know the area somewhat.

If you want a modern house that size most will be off the peninsular, perhaps in the Bedford Basin area, or across the bridge on the Dartmouth side. Older houses in the Point Pleasant Park area will be out of your price range, and many others closer to Dal or downtown have been renovated into multiple small apartments for student housing.

Take a look through the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) for the area.
