Newtown is a very nice town but $350k will not go far there. Your budget will go a lot farther on a Yardley twin, in Levittown or in Morrisville.

I'd say Newtown. Morrisville is so-so, maybe slightly below average in some sections. Trenton is right across the river from Morrisville so that brings some of the riff raff from across the river.

I would definitely say check out Yardley and Newtown. Both are in top rated school districts and offer a lot of charm while still being convenient to major amenities. And you are just a stone throw away from New Hope and Lambertville for some wonderful nightlife/dinning amenities and community events.

Your property taxes will also be lower in these towns than anything in NJ. But with that property prices are higher on the PA side.

Good luck!

I am not clear what you are saying re property taxes? I think it's safe to say taxes are much higher in NJ but your last sentence has me very confused ( nothing new lol).

I might be not fully woken up but what are you saying?

And yes, Yardley and Newtown are great choices.

In general with regards to property taxes.

You see home prices lower in S. NJ but property taxes higher compared to similar homes/communities in SEPA.

Where property taxes are generally a decent margin lower in SEPA, but home prices are higher for a comparable home/community than in NJ.

Minor political nit:

Yardley and Morrisville are surrounded by Lower Makefield Township, not in it. They're separate boroughs, just as New Hope Borough is separate from adjacent Solebury and Upper Makefield townships. Their property tax rates and amounts will differ from those of Lower Makefield.

I worked in Yardley for about a year. It's a pleasant, quiet little town with some nice restaurants and shops in its town center.

Hi! I have several friends who worked in Trenton for years and lived in Doylestown. There is kind of a secret route. You take Forest Grove Rd, then cut over one of several choices to 413 to Pineville (misses some of 413), then Pineville Rd. to Washington Crossing and cross the little bridge there to NJ. From then it's just south on 29. Takes about 40 minutes.



Central Bucks is a very good school district, and I can say it's a quiet area. Great for dogs too.


Good Luck!
