Hi,
My husband and I seem to be in the same boat as you. We are looking into Easton/Bethlehem/Nazareth area as well. Not planning on moving for at least a year or so but trying to research safe and family oriented neighborhoods. The schools in Easton aren't that great from my research (however, Catholic Schools are not that expensive) but there are a few nice developments in Forks and Palmer Township. There is Riverview Estates, The Estates at Steeplechase North, Countryside and Shawnee Ridge. I was also looking into Quakertown, which is in Bucks County but still about the same distance to NJ. Not sure yet if its a nice neighborhood but according to greatschools.net the schools are rated very high and the housing prices are about the same as Easton. I'm trying to look more into Bucks County to see if there are other nice towns with good schools but don't think you can get a 2500 sq ft house for $300,000 like you can in Easton. If you find out more info about these areas please share it with me! Thanks and good luck searching!

Congrats on the house! I hope all goes well on April 1st! We will be moving from South Amboy but not for a while. We just took our house off the market. Hard to sell these days. Going to wait it out a year or so. Good luck!

NEW JERSEY HOUSING INFO


Prices in North Jersey and the metro area are more than $100,000 below the peaks of around $540,000 reached in 2006 and 2007.

Sales of condos, co-ops and single-family homes in New Jersey rose 34 percent in the quarter from a year earlier, to 135,600 units. That’s still below the levels of the housing boom, when yearly sales topped 180,000 in 2004 and 2005

Back on topic please - poster is not asking for advice on whether to move or not, she's asking about what areas in the Lehigh Valley would be good for her family.
