Hello,

We are currently living in downtown philly and would like buy a house about 30-40 mins from the city or a bit longer is fine if train accessible. Our budget is around $400K and are looking for good schools when we have kids in a few years. We saw several towns in PA, but did not find newer modern homes or even new construction within that pricing. Any recommendations of areas in PA, NJ or Delaware?

We came across this house in Woolwich Township in South Jersey, but the area seems a bit secluded. No department stores, known restaurants, or big box stores nearby and no train station at all nearby.

Does anyone live in this area or know of how this area is? It seems like a good town to grow family, but has there been any talks about future developments (stores, restaurants) in the area underway?

Also, how is the diversity there? Property and income taxes?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Do a search for that area from a poster named NJGOAT. He wrote in a lot of detail a few years ago.
