I see some house for sale in low 400ks in plainview and they are all mainly border near by hicksvile.
since I've never live in Long island I'd like to find out if being border by hicksville will cause the price drop a little (like garden city border with Hempstead)

in example house with this address 1 Violet Ln, Plainview, NY 11803 | Listing Information | MLSLI.com - Long Island Real Estate

Hicksville is not a bad (crime-ridden) neighborhood, especially by there. I'd say it has zero effect on the price in the case of these 2 towns. As a matter of fact, Surrey which is 1 block south of that is considered Bethpage. There are houses in the mid-to-high 300s in Plainview as well... smaller and older ranches and they are toward the middle of town (not necessarily for sale at the moment).

I can't seem to find the price history of this house (which helps with determining why they want that price), but it appears they have been on the market for a while because of the high price. They are only assessed at 359k (taken with a grain of salt) and it needs a lot of updating. Also the 1150sqft for $450k+ is too high. I'm also guessing it's close enough to Old Country Road that you'll get constant road noise.

Positives: gas heat, big enough yard, full basement, think the garage is at least partially converted already.

Anyway, you said it was only an example. 4 bed and under $450k there are better options.

Plainview - Hicksville = different taxes. Go to Nassau County Property Search: Land Record Viewer

Enter the address or addresses of the homes you are considering and review the information, including how much the taxes are, there.

Hicksville taxes are lower, I believe.

Plainview is a predominately white collar town as Hicksville is a blue collar town. The closer you live to Hicksville or Bethpage, the less expensive and less desirable the area becomes. However, since home demand is so great in Plainview, these prices will probably Increase within the next couple years.
