corridor from bucks county to delaware county. We are seniors not especially looking for an over 55 community, rather a small town setting with a nice downtown shopping area. Am I asking for to much?

Thank you.

What is your preferred housing budget? What would you consider to be "reasonable" real estate taxes? With that information we can pare down the numerous options that would fit your preferences.

Between Bucks, Montgomery and Delaware Counties, Delco tends to have the highest property taxes...but that is generally offset by lower housing prices in comparable neighborhoods.

Default Thank you tone, I would like the real estate taxes to be no more then

$2000.00 a year. We can get even lower in Delaware but prefer not to move there. I would like to not pay more then$200,000.00 for a home.

Use Zillow to check some of the towns along your target corridor. (I suggest Zillow rather than realtor.com because it's easier to find property tax info.)

In Delaware County, at least, a $200,000 house/condo is more likely to have real estate taxes well above $3,000.
