Well, you live in Waterbury, pay taxes in Waterbury, and you work in….Watertown, or perhaps even in the Oakville area. 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 Watertown/Oakville just might make sense because


  1. The taxes are lower. Compare a tax mill rate of 22. 72 vs. 39.92 for the two areas. Not to mention that relatively similar houses in both towns are worth much more in Watertown.
  2. The school district is better. A look at Watertown Public Schools shows that the six schools in the district have decent student-teacher ratios, an easy to manage system of grouping students, and most importantly, their test scores show that the district is meeting the proficiency standards set by the Connecticut State Department of Education.
  3. Avoiding that annoying rush-hour traffic and shortening the time it takes to get back and forth to work. Need I say any more?
  4. A better (arguably) selection of restaurants (to be featured in future blog posts), for those who like to take the time to eat out and enjoy a night with family and/or friends.



If the affordability of homes in Watertown/Oakville is a concern, a look at the recent real estate market stats for Watertown will inform you that a little over half of the homes for sale in Watertown and Oakville are under $300k, with 30 homes under S200K. If a single family home is not an option, there are condos available in the area as well.



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 Watertown may possibly be the best thing you’ve ever done.
