Maryland: BRAC: Where Will You Move?
Thousands of people are relocating to the region around Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland because of the Military's Base Realignment and Closure initiative (BRAC).
However, the relocating decision may be more difficult than one would think.
Within a reasonable driving distance one has three states from which to choose, Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Every one of them is vying for a piece of the action.
Within Maryland itself, there are three counties, Harford, Cecil, and Baltimore, plus Baltimore City which are within a reasonable commuting distance.
The easy access to Interstate 95, Route 40, and the Commuter Rail Line increases the viability of many of these areas.
To further complicate, or simplify depending upon your point of view, there are choices of almost every imaginable style of home and neighborhood.
There are homes with lots of acreage, townhomes and condominiums, suburban communities, busy metropolis communities, and even waterfront homes.
The taxes in each state vary, including the income, property, and sales taxes.
Another concern is education from the private or public schools to the community and advanced level colleges.
There are incentives available from some states such as Maryland's Mortgage Program.
Some people have strategically located to try to take advantage of the positives of more than one state. For instance, they may want the rural living which is available in Cecil County, Maryland, but the proximity to sales tax free shopping in Delaware.
