As you can see from my login name, NJ is killin us! We are hoping to get out of this godforsaken state as soon as the kids graduate high school, which gives us about 3 years so I'm starting to do my homework now.

Hubby works in Cherry Hill right off I-295 & from what I've seen, the Newark area looks like the commute might be easier than Wilmington, plus it looks a little more rural, which is what we would like. Or am I wrong on that? I'd like to keep his commute to about an hour and we would also like something around $300 to $400 thousand with at least one acre...

Any suggestions? Anyone else out there doing this commute and if so, how is it? The time isn't a problem, that's his commute now... just GOT to get out of NJ, absolutely cannot stand it here anymore!

Thank you!!

I go to the Cherry Hill area about 5-6 time a month. Depending on the time you travel, my commute from Middletown is about 1 hour. I try to travel during non peak hours. If you're looking at properties with an acre of ground, you're generally looking in southern New Castle county. I don't think it's easier to commute from the Newark area than the Wilmington area.

NJ...:

If your husband is going to commute to Cherry Hil during customary peak times I would venture to suggest that you could find - if not more than an acre - fairly large lots - north of the canal. If you live south of the Canal then his commute is progressively going to get worse.

Planning ahead is good thinking but three years can change a lot of things by way of traffic patterns. Suffice it to say that you can locate a house with at least half to three-quarter acre lot within the commuting time of an hour. And if you have to have a larger than one acre lot then it just would be a litle harder - not impossible -

thanks so much for the replies! Don't really need larger than 1 acre... would just like to have enough land that we don't have to worry about nosy neighbors. (In addition to everything else, we right now have the neighbor from H#LL!!!) now with all the compost our "governor" Corzine has dumped on us with his "budget" I'm afraid we'll never get outta here...

This may be the time to make that move ...at present there is pent-up demand due to lethargic real estate activity during 2008 .. what kind of compost did the Gov. dump on NJ residents? Before people realize what that means mab the best time to make the move.

By compost if you mean the new Budget and raising of taxes - eliminating rebates - they are yet to be passed by the legislature - they are not law yet.
