I have a couple of recommendations in the Michelin tire line.  Last summer
Michelin came out with a new "reasonably priced" Pilot tire; it is called the
XGTH4 Pilot.  It is an "all season" tire although I feel it is definitely
biased toward dry and wet conditions much more than snow.  I live in the
Sierra's with an annual snow fall in the 400+ inch range so I go with the
Michelin Arctic Alpin for the winter.  If your new home has significant
snowfall an extra set of rims and a set of true winter tires are a good
investment.  Both of these tires are available from the Tire Rack at
tirerack.com at fairly reasonable prices.

Hope it works out for you,]
