We looked at a community in Scotch Plains NJ.....cost of the home is over $1m (3500-4000 sq ft) but the big difference is taxes and fees. We pay only $3500/yr in Iredell property taxes for our home on 1.5 acres. The property taxes on the new NJ Toll Brothers home (on a 7000 sq ft lot) are $25,000/yr. HOA fees are another $550/mo. I think a lot of people in NJ are tired of the high taxes and looking elsewhere.

Still trying to convince my wife to move to NC but she's not a Trump fan and after last night, it looks like were done.
That's too bad. I hope the fact that you may disagree politically with the owner of the club won't completely discourage you both for enjoying a wonderful neighborhood. Remember only the club is owned by Mr. Trump. I don't anticipate the election results having a negative effect on the neighborhood. We have great schools, low taxes and beautiful homes with wonderful neighbors - a lot more pros than cons.

Default Days on market good and bad

While sometimes extended days on market may appear as a blemish, there are also many advantages to listing a home in the off season; such as less inventory and serious buyers! Depending on the price point and the market condition days on market is sometimes expected especially in the luxury market. There simply are not a ton of people who can or are willing to spend a million dollars for a home. As long as there is an open dialogue from the listing agent about why the home has been on the market, it's not always considered a bad home.
