So I currently live in central Jersey, but I'm moving to the Langhorne area. I work in Princeton, the fiancee works in Philly, so that area seemed best for both of us. Also, I may be working back in NYC within the next year or two, so the commute to Trenton from there would be quick.

My fiancee and I plan on living there for the next 5 years (until she finishes her PhD), and then we plan on moving south (N. Carolina probably). My question is, what areas should I look in, in Bucks County, that's really up-and-coming? I'd like to buy something today (in the 300k or less price range), and sell it in 5 years for a modest profit (I know spending 300k on a house won't make me rich in 5 years, but a nice chunk of change would be nice).

I've been looking in the Langhorne area, but I'm open to anything else (Morrisville, Yardley, Newtown, etc.). With only 300k to spend, and looking for a single-family (detatched) house, I know I'm asking for alot, but any help would be appreciated.

I know some have said that Bristol Borough is "up-and-coming", but I don't see it going up in value in the next 5 years. I've heard the same for Levvittown, and having been through there, I didn't see the potential.

Again, ANY help would be appreciated, and if there are any specific areas (i.e. Langhorne Manor, Yardley Farms, etc.) I should look in, please let me know as well. MANY thanks in advance!
