Hi there! Due to my husbands job we are having to relocate to the Northeast. He will most likeliy be working in NJ (Clinton/Woodbridge area) but due to the extremely high cost of living we think we will most likely live just over the border in PA. We would probably need to be kind of close to 95 to help with the commute. I am trying to find a smaller town that would be ideal for a family. We have 2 daughters (9 & 10) and would like a family friendly area, where the cost of living is not too high. We will need to rent for a year or so to kind of look around and wait for the market to come back in Fl, so we can sell our home for a decent price. We were told Yardly is a good option about an hour from Woodbridge but not sure what the housing market is like there. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to look??? Is is our first move so it will be hard especially coordinating it from down here.

Yardley is a great small town but its not going to be that much cheaper than NJ, certainly wont be enough to justify an hour commute imo.. The Bucks County border towns along the Delaware River are very expensive except for Morrisville and you dont want to live there.

Yardley,Washington Crossing,New Hope, are all great river towns but they might be as pricey or pricier than Woodbridge although your taxes will be much lower in PA.

If you can find a great deal in Yardley or anywhere in Bucks County(x-cept parts of lower Bucks) and dont mind the commute by all means feel assured you are moving to a nice community.

Good luck

Woodbridge is pretty affordable, as far as NJ goes. you can go and live in PA, but your commute would cost you so much. and clinton and woodbridge are not really near each other.
