Well, you live in Waterbury, pay taxes in Waterbury, and you work in…. Wolcott. No – what I’ve found to be true is the reverse (as it may be for many of the surrounding towns ) : some people may work in Waterbury, but live in Wolcott, or have jobs outside of the area. Now, since that reason has been eliminated - the whole necessity of living where you work - what might induce a Waterbury resident to move to Wolcott???
- The taxes are lower. Compare a tax mill rate of 22 .69 vs. 39.92 for the two areas. Not to mention that relatively similar houses in both towns are worth much more in Wolcott .
- The school district is better. Visit the Wolcott School District site to get more detailed information.
- The quiet of a suburban setting. Nothing like being able to walk around the neighborhood with a sense of serenity and security.
If the affordability of homes in Wolcott is a concern, a look at the recent real estate market stats for Wolcott will inform you that almost half of Wolcott’s housing inventory is listed under $300k , so housing in Wolcott is affordable.
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 Wolcott may possibly be the best thing you’ve ever done.
