You are asking best of best in the area which has US most richest counties and for $300K.
Its hard but housing market slowdown may work in your favor. Very good move, good luck.

If you are looking in 300K range with best schools,large indian community then Villages of Urbana in Frederick is one of the better choices.
The property tax is pretty low here because it is in Frederick county. I hope this information helps you. The elementary,middle and high schools here are one of the best in the state.

Default Urbana home taxes are twice as much as in VA

Urbana is a new community. Home taxes are twice compared to similar houses in VA. It is also around 50 miles from DC.

I have no idea about property taxes about VA. In urbana, the property tax is 0.00094 % of sale price. Urbana is about 36 miles from DC exactly. for a 300K house, the property tax is about 282$ PM.

How much is the property tax in VA? I was also thinking of fairfax county when I started my search but ended up in Urbana.

Just out of curiosity....Are you a first time buyer or are you moving from some other place to DC area? Just thinking about the home buyer's credit for first timers...

Best place to purchase home in DC/MD/VA area is near your place of work. Even if you have a palace but have to spend time every day in commute it is not worth it.
