While we certainly want a home that the entire family can enjoy, with one child that’s almost five and another baby percolating in the pot, schools are a top priority for us. Therefore, while we had to settle for a slightly smaller condominium than we might have otherwise, it was worth it in order to get one of the best school districts in the state for our children.
We are a one car family. This means that as a work-at-home dad, being without a car during the day -- though it saves us hundreds of dollars on insurance and upkeep each year -- can be slightly inconvenient.
When living in our last neighborhood, I was pretty much stranded at home with no transportation. However, when looking for our condo, we ensured that we searched in areas that were close to the commuter rail, shopping, entertainment, the post office, the library, and schools.
