Wellsboro PA, What would you do?

MY hubby got a job offer..... It come's with a company truck and a home it also includes $40/hr but it requires us to relocate and im all for it, I know the disadvantage's are i wont know anyone or have any family around but im prepared for that, besides i don't see how anyone could pass up an offer like that espcially with the way the economy is, I was wanting to know if you have relocated and was it worth it. And what is Wellsboro pa like?

  • Sounds like a lovely little town! I live in Easton, PA--more city like (although I live in a more suburban/country area), I would move there in a heartbeat! Here, click on the blue links (education, crime, people, etc.) on this page, to find out more about Wellsboro!

  • We are on the other side of the state. But I agree, for that kind of money, GO!

    And then let the rest of us know how to apply! lol! I would give anything to move away from family! lol! $40/hr would just be a benefit!

  • There should be a relocation package, that includes someone to help you find a place to live, tell you about school options, etc.

  • Hello Mom,We moved to the adjacent county, Potter county 10 yrs ago. we looked in wellsboro but decided on Potter County. Real Estate is a little less expensive in Potter. My wife stays upstate and I commute to the Phila area for days at a time in order to get keep my business & to enjoy all the area has to offer. That's how much I think of the area. Wellsboro offers a good quality of life The Town itself is well done and has alot of community involvement, although it can be kinda of touristy. Outside of Wellsboro,rural, mountains & valleys. If you decide to purchase a home, beaware that there is gas well drilling in the area (out in the countryside) so pick your house and neighbors well. I have found Tom Severi to be a great RE agent in the area. He will treat you honestly. http://www.wellsboroparealestate.com/ (570) 723-1600.
