Why do people move into these towns?

"The answer is usually the same," said Jeni DiVirgilio. "Good schools, great towns, close proximity to New York City with easy public transportation into it. If you’re going to live in NJ, this is a great place to live!”

“With those good schools and great towns, come higher taxes that folks don’t mind paying,” DiVirgilio continued. “The lowest property taxes from last week’s closed sales was about $6,700 per year and the highest was about $37,000 per year! Using these 11 sales only, the average yearly property taxes in the three towns would be about $11,000 to $18,000 per year. So, if you’re planning to buy a home in the area, you’ll need to factor in the taxes.  Did you read the TAP article, Shocking News! … NJ has the Highest Property Taxes in the Nation?” Click here to read the article.

Routines, maintenance and sustainability are not their strong points. They respond to excitement and challenge, not to the uneventful, monotonous daily grind.
