We are relocating from north jersey to south. We are looking in Burlington County and the Cherry Hill area........
important to us:
good schools
We have a budget of 300,000 for now.
My daughter is only 2 but we really dont want to be moving her all around so we would like to move and settle in there. And then maybe in a few years upgrade!
So far we have been researching Cherry Hill, Haddonfield, Moorestown, and Mt. Laurel. But we are still very stressed about this decison! Any info on any of these towns or others please let me know! We have sometime....we will not be moving until after the winter.
Thank you in advance!

Bri, I'm throwing another town at ya but I think it's worth a look and I'm not just saying it because I live here. A lot of people don't know much about Stratford because it's very small compared to Cherry Hill. It's just that for the price you are looking at in CH, you would probably be up for some upgrading in your house. Are you ok with that? For that price in Stratford you could find an upgraded home for what looks like a Cherry Hill developement. Laurel Mills Farms developement and other sections surrounding it are just beatiful. The people of this town trake pride in their yards and homes, and it really shows as you drive through. I originally looked in Marlton for the same price range we moved in here and I was shocked over the difference! Yes, of course it costs more to live in CH or Marlton, but I don't believe the schools are any better than ours. It's what the people and students make of it and our town is extremely family friendly, and education active. The schools even have lots of social events for the kids throughout the year which they just love too. I grew up in this town and after starting my family, I moved back like many do here. The average home goes from about $240- $300K and taxes are a killer but much better than CH! I pay about $5700 a yr. Crime is unheard of but no one can tell you it doesn't happen. I would check out the city statistics.
