Well, you live in Waterbury , pay taxes in Waterbury , and you work in…. Plymouth. Maybe you’ve just started working in the area, or perhaps you’ve been a constant presence on your job for the past 10, 15, maybe even 20 years or longer. Depending on where you currently live in Waterbury , a move to Plymouth just might make sense because
- The taxes are lower. Compare a tax mill rate of 30.1 vs. 39.92 for the two areas. Not to mention that relatively similar houses in both towns are worth much more in Plymouth , and they have more space between houses . Nothing like having a large yard, for sure.
- The school district is better. Visit the Terryville School District site to get more detailed information.
- The quiet of a suburban setting. Nothing like being able to walk around the neighborhood with a sense of serenity and security.
- The possibility of having a shorter commute to work. Consider if yo u work in Thomaston or Bristol – the direct path to any of these towns is much shorter from Plymouth than it is from Waterbury.
If the affordability of homes in Plymouth is a concern, a look at the recent real estate market stats for Plymouth will inform you that more than half of Plymouth ’ s housing inventory is listed under $300k , so housing in Plymouth is affordable.
There are, of course, many reasons why you may want to stay – but in these tough economic times, any way that one can save a penny is a good thing, and moving to Plymouth may possibly be the best thing you’ve ever done.
