Hello, I will be going through the loan approval process after the holidays and my wife and I decided we would like to enroll our boys into Dallastown Schools. We will most likely purchase a townhome, so I was wondering if there were any nice developments within the district. Some street addresses that I have seen on Zillow are: Sentinel Lane, Schultz Way, Lantern Ct, W Chestnut Street, Oak Ridge lane, Ivy Ridge, Tyler Run Queens Gate, Fox Run Drive. I am sure there are more options out there but was curious if anyone had any knowledge of these areas (more importantly, are there any that should be avoided due to shadiness, etc.). Looking for a low drama, family oriented place; or even a very quiet community. Thank You in Advance!!

Great school district. Your best option would be to spend a day driving around the area to see what appeals to you. Some of them might be too far away from amenities, others will have playgrounds and play areas for kids/families. Some of them are sprawling, high density places with concrete streets and driveways (very little green space) and others seem more like a neighborhood because of their grouping and positioning. Some of them may require long bus rides to schools for your children, others may be fairly close and the ride will be short. Some of them are newer developments with upgrades in the sound proofing, kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures. Others are older and depending on how they've been maintained~could need some modernization. Be sure and check out the policies of the Homeowner's Association and how it operates and what your monthly association dues/fees cover. I think you'd find most of these suitable for family life~but the best thing to do is tour the area, work with a real estate agent and if you can play the waiting game for a foreclosure or short sale, you might want to consider that as an option as well.
