It was confirmed today that I will be relocated for my job on 1/1/10 and our company is located in Mahwah, NJ.<br><br>
We would love recommendations of where to live, good schools (especially if your child has an IEP) and well, we will be going down to 1 income, so money will be tight. We'd like a 3 bedroom home with a garage and my absolute max would be $350k, but would be more comfortable (yet still tight) at $300-325.<br><br>
We of course would need new drs, dentists, etc.<br><br>
I'm not opposed to going living in NY as its right next to Mahwah.<br><br>
Looking for any and all feedback.<br><br>
Thanks!!!

The best doctor around is right in your area. Dr. Raida Shor is a little older Russian doctor who is great with ap, delayed or no vax, and everything else. Her phone number is 201-818-8810. She is either in Mahwah or Ramsey which is the next town over. It's been so long since we've been to her that I can't remember. Right off of 17 which you will find is the main road through that area. Also you will find a Trader Joe's just a few miles down 17. And there is a Whole Foods in Ridgewood which is also just a few miles away just off 17.<br><br>
I don't know if you will find a house in that area in your price range. Bergen County is pretty pricey. But NY is far worse. If you are considering homeschooling at all, you want to stay in Jersey.<br><br>
Welcome to the area.<br><br>

It will be challenging to find something in your price range in Bergen County with good schools. Towns that I know of that will have something in your price range, with good schools, and within a half hour commute are Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, and Oakland.<br>
Suffern, NY I have heard is affordable but I don't know anything about the schools.<br><br>
If you look in Mahwah, from what I have heard from a woman I know who used to live there-the town does have a diverse population but there is not a lot of crossover when it comes to where they live.

Totally agree - check Oakland, Fairlawn and Suffern. Maybe also Rockland County in general? Glen Rock is pricey...

Suffern has good schools- You can search the Census Bureau's Report for the Profile of Selected Housing Characteristics that lists average mortgage status information along with other good data.<br><br><a href="http://censtats.census.gov/data/NY/1603671894.pdf" target="_blank">http://censtats.census.gov/data/NY/1603671894.pdf</a><br><br>
Good luck!
