QUOTES & STORIES

OUR "FOREVER" HOME...
Justin and Samantha Carreiro
 

 

In 2014 we were looking for our “forever” home. We were drawn to Reading by the convenient location and the tree lined streets.  We bought a home in Reading because of its reputation as a safe, well maintained town and its solid school system.  Having three young children- these were the key criteria in our home search.  In addition, we truly feel that all of the events, resources and economic diversity that the town offers will benefit our children well over the years.

 

Last fall we started attending the School and Town budget meetings and were alarmed at the state of the Town/School budget.  We continue to gather information and attend meetings and it is clear that the override is not a frivolous, ‘nice to have’ amenity but rather a true NEED.  Having just moved here and purchased a home with a certain budget for annual taxes, we certainly do not take the idea of having to pay more taxes lightly. But in this case we believe it is warranted and in the long run will only help maintain our property value (we would rather pay a little more in taxes than have our home value drop.) 

 

Most importantly, we want to raise our children in a community that values education and is willing to step up to protect and maintain the reputation that is has worked hard to build.
