Good questions. Good school meaning they could deal with all types of kids (learning challenged, add, gifted... Rebbeim and teachers like working there.

Housing budget is between 4-500k

Does such a community exist?

What I do is I go on https://www.zillow.com

I search the city I am considering. And then I see how much the houses are being sold for. It gives me a great idea of how expensive it is to live there.

Also, you can search on Zillow, doing a filtered search, for a house in a specific city and specific price range and it'll show you if there are houses going for that price in that city.

You can absolutely find a house for that price! As long as you spend some time searching various cities on Zillow

The houses in Waterbury, CT are just 300k for 3 bedrooms! Looking on Zillow now. Not many 500k houses.

I don't live there, but I know from visiting there multiple times and having many friends there that they have a decent sized Jewish community and a great school for the children.

School wise I am super happy in Chicago but 400-500 will get you a house that needs a fair amount of work.

You can’t really do this… I tried it for Baltimore once then sent to a real estate agent I know there. He said those houses are not at all in the community.

I hear the school in houston is great ( I think more modern orthodox) and I believe it's affordable.

You would only just search to get an idea of what the prices are of the homes in that city, and ask a real estate person or friend who lives there to help you find a home in the frum community.

I wouldn't use to Zillow to find a house for sale, rather, I would use it to know what the price ranges tend to be a certain city.

You should definitely check out Waterbury CT and a few people are looking to sell their homes in Blue Ridge - newer development with newer houses for about $450

Cleveland schools are bursting at the seams. Make sure they have enough room for your kids before you decide. But you can definitely find a decent house within that price range

YDT Cleveland due not meet the criteria for school.

Waterbury sound like a good fit and the school has amped up their supports like resource room, paras, etc, but they're not equipped to handle major special needs just fyi. Also, they are opening a boys HS for this coming year if that's relevant.
