Recommendations for neighboorhoods commutable from Southfield, MI

My husband has a job offer in Southfield, MI that we are considering.  We would be relocating from North Carolina, and we are looking for recommendations on where to start searching  for houses.  We are hoping to find an area that is kid friendly (i.e. lots of parks, activities, good schools, etc.), in the $250-300k price range.  A half hour commute from Southfield would be doable.  We are spoiled here in North Carolina, because we are surrounded by great parks!  Also, where would I find a good organic grocery store?

Hi, thank you for your reply!  What is the market like for new construction in those areas?  A newer neighborhood would be nice.

Good Morning Liz,

A lot would depend on what you are looking for in a home.  Personally there are quite a few areas surrounding Southfield that would meet your stated needs.  Areas such as Troy, Rochester Hills, Shelby Township, West Bloomfield, Birmingham, Royal Oak, Franklin, Beverly Hills.  For the schools you can check out this website: http://www.schooldigger.com/go/MI/schoolrank.aspx.   All of the areas have homes in the price range your requesting.

If you need the assistance of a buyer's agent I would be happy to help!

Good Luck!
