Good towns on LI but not crazy expensive!

Been doing research and I just seem to go around and around in circles!!!

We are in nassau now...I am very familar with nassau county BUT less with suffox.

We LOVE where we are but our TAXES are INSANE

Been researching....but like I said very confused.

Most imp is SAFETY and SCHOOL...But not looking for a 800K house!!!!

400 range this time!

eta: close to LIRR

Re: Good towns on LI but not crazy expensive!

Sayville tops my list (I'm biased!)
I also love Bay Shore (especially West Bay Shore - south of Union/west of Southward Ho)
Bayport and Bluepoint are cute too.

Each of these gets very expensive as you go near the water. With the exception of West Sayville - the houses on West and Atlantic are surprisingly reasonable despite the proximity to the GSB.

Re: Good towns on LI but not crazy expensive!

If you want to consider Suffolk, the taxes are MUCH less and you get more property. Overall you get more for your money in Suffolk.

I live in Lake Grove and it's beautiful.....great village/town. If you want closer to the train I would suggest Ronkonkoma which is nice as well.

I LOVE HOlbrook. Exactly what I am looking for...the only thing is it is a little far I think...But its not out of the question. see...My parents are in Queens and my sis in Seaford.

But I do love it there...and I am trying to decide

Re: Good towns on LI but not crazy expensive!

There are tons of great towns on LI. Personally, I think you should try to narrow down your search area a little more. It seems like you are searching all of LI. Just a thought.

E. Northport and Kings Park both have reasonably prices houses, reasonable taxes, and schools with a great reputation.

Northport is a great area and low taxes since LIPA is there, but if you are in the village - there are village taxes. There is a wide arrange of houses from 300K-2+ million

Re: Good towns on LI but not crazy expensive!

I live in Glen Head which is a great town and great schools (North Shore school district). We also have a LIPA plant which I believe helps with taxes.
Its on the north shore of Nassau County.

I'm in farmingdale......east side though so we are Suffolk so our taxes are less but we are in farmingdale SD.

Grew up in northport and the taxes are cheap but you won't find much for 400k

All of these towns are very safe and have good schools. Houses vary from 300k and up with most being in the 400k range.

Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh, Seaford, Massapequa, Massapequa Park - all nice middle-class towns with good schools, and all on the Babylon train line, which is generally excellent.
