Default Would not live

NJ I have only visited a couple times but have to say the high cost of living, high housing costs, high taxes and gun control policies are enough to keep me away forever. Much rather make NJ wages in a low cost of living state.

Wow, I cant imagine paying such high property taxes in NJ. I pay $357.00 a year for my 3/2 home on 11 acres in Mo.

LOL , it depends on where you live in the state....for the property taxes , and the cost of living. This state is very nice you do for the most part get your taxes worth in good schools and safer towns. The great thing about this state is you really don't need a car or need to drive alot , Public transit goes everywhere and runs a decent amount. The problem is most of the states with lower cost of living don't have there higher paying jobs....

And you get to hide in your basement for 8 months a year dodging tornadoes! You searched a thread that was 3 1/2 years old to tell us about high property taxes.

Yes there are a few things about NJ that are unappealing, but there are so many things that make it 1 of the best places to live IMO. I love NJ.

LOL!!!

Good reply!

For the record, I live in Philly ... less than 4 miles from Jersey and I pay about $1,600/yr in taxes (my home is a 3 story, 6 bedroom Victorian with a porch with a current market value in the mid $400's K).
