So long story short, my girlfriend works in New Britain, I work in East Greenville. We would like to be relatively in the middle or near 476 for myself.

Money isn't a huge issue, we make about 60k combined but my credit is shot currently from being laid offor 3 years ago, so that is an issue. So we're looking for apartments decent in price but preferably a sizable. Everything I see is 700 square feet for $900 without any utilities included, and unless the last person lied about the square footage, 700 square feet is really small, essentially an efficiency. If I'm wrong, does anyone have a reliable way to see square footage for comparisale?

Looking for a town/city with decent pricing for the size of an apartment, and preferably close to East Greenville and New Britian, or close to New Britain and near 476.

Why Bucks County? Try Lansdale or Hatfield in Montgomery County.

Somewhere around Quakertown? Lansdale or Hatfield may be too pricey. Quick ride down 663 to East Greenville. Maybe 30-35 minutes to New Britain depending on traffic on 313?

I agree with John - Quakertown should be affordable. It's a nice town and close enough to East Greenville via back roads. You could also look over the mountain into Lehigh County - Emmaus, Macungie. Or Pennsburg. Really, any of those areas around East Greenville are nice, the problem to places closest to East Greenville is lack of rental stock. Q-town seems to have more townhouses and apartments. Nice old town with main street, shopping and even a new brew pub!

FYI 700SF is not really small and is definitely not efficiency size
