WE currently live in Butler but are thinking of moving soon. We are looking into PA since the prices are great and taxes are low. We can get a relatively new house with 4 bedrooms for under 400,000.

As much as I would like to move to PA, I feel like it would be so much easier to stay in NJ.

Can someone help me find a town that I can find a decent 4 bedroom house with taxes around 7,000 in a good school district..does this even exist in NJ??

Thanks!

OP lives in Butler.

If commute isn't an issue - you can look in Long Valley/Califon/Lebanon area - you may be able to get something in that price range. good luck!

Look at White Twp in Warren County. Reasonable home prices and right now taxes are not to bad. But no Police, no sewers, no nothing.

She won't touch new construction for that price.

Williamstown has lots of new construction. We just bought in Willow Woods.
