My fiance and I have recently begun putting a lot of thought towards relocating from Cleveland, OH somewhere farther East, like Massachusetts or Connecticut. Despite what various posters have had to say about Springfield, I'm still considering it as one of two possible options - but what I'm most interested in is what the surrounding suburbs look like, more specfically, the more friendly and affordable places to set up home. I'm planning to start graduate school in the next year and a half, so some place that I could easily commute to one of the nearby universities would be ideal. Also, what does the current job market look like? What about fun and leisure activities? How's the weather? Thanks in advance!

HellO!First of all I am so glad to hear you are considering a move to Springfield! I am glad you have not taken the posts on here to seriously, considering most of them are from uneducated suburbenites who have barely ever set foot in Springfield and read masslive forums way to much. I can't tell you much about the job market but I can tell you loads about the neighborhoods in Springfield! The two gems are Historic McKnight and Historic Forest Park. Both are on the national historic registar and contain some of the most elegant homes in New England. Amazing victorians that range from mid-size to four story mansions. Prices in those neighborhoods depend on the condition of the home, you can find a fixer upper or a completely restored home. Prices range from $100,000 to $500,000. Other nice areas include sixteen acres and east forest park which contain smaller cape style and split level homes plus a lot of new construction. Prices there range from $100,000 to $250,000. Take a look at choosespringfieldmass.com and springfieldcityhall.com for more. Feel free to post back with any questions and again thank you for considering our great city!
