York Township

What we love: It’s the best of all worlds—country living with easy access to both Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Couple that with affordable home prices and top-notch schools, and you’ve got the complete package.

What we love: Those public schools! You won’t find a better district in Washtenaw County—no, really! Saline Area Schools are rated the #1 Public School District in Washtenaw, and #7 overall in the state.

Sylvan Township

What we love: The breathtaking natural beauty you’ll find throughout the Township, from tranquil woods to active farmlands, rolling glacial hills to sparkling lakes. It’s true country bliss just 15 minutes from Ann Arbor.

What we love: Dexter is an independent little town just close enough to Ann Arbor for an easy commute, yet with enough of its own amenities that you don’t have to go into the city if you don’t want to. And its parks are pretty exceptional, too.

Pittsfield Charter Township

Housing is varied and more affordable than nearby Ann Arbor’s.

What we love: Pittsfield Township is very up-and-coming. Its prime location means you’re close to Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Saline, so development (commercial and residential) around these cities is spreading out into Pittsfield.
