My husband and I are living in Norther Jersey but would like to relocate to South Jersey. His south Jersey office isin Cherry Hill, but I have family in Hamilton that I would like to be close to. I am looking for a nice town somewhere between Cherry Hill and Hamilton. We don't have kids now, but we would like to down the road. Somewhere with a cute little downtown and starter homes that go for under 2k. Is that possible? Or townhomes for under 2k.

Thanks,
Melissa

Are you talking about renting or buying? Or did you mean to say 200K?

There aren't many true "towns" between Cherry Hill and Hamilton unless you look along the Delaware River. Mount Holly could be an option. Its downtown is pretty nice with some good restaurants and shops. It should be pretty easy to find something for 2k/month.

Personally I would move closer in to Cherry Hill. You want a downtown, so that makes it a little tough, but even from Collingswood or Haddon Twp. you're only looking at about 40 minutes to get to Hamilton. Burlington County might work out better and if you are looking to rent you may even swing a place in Moorestown, which would be a closer trip to Hamilton, but closer to Cherry Hill. As others said, there isn't much between Cherry Hill and Hamilton and pretty much nothing when you add on the requirement for a downtown.

Yeah I think Mt. Holly is probably the closest thing to what the OP is looking for between Cherry Hill and Hamilton.

Since we don't know your finances, we don't know how much of a downpayment you will have. Because we don't know that, we don't know what price you can afford to get that monthly payment.

We merely volunteer our time to help people make choices. Your finances are your business. When you figure out what price range you are looking for, please let us know that information & we'll try to help you.

I think the implication is that they are looking for homes that cost under $200k. If that's the case you are going to need to make some real decisions regarding what your needs and wants are as there may be a lot of compromise involved.
