I see a lot of houses in each town on the market but my question is when they do sell where do you think everyone is going? I am just curious. I look in Bergen and see towns with 120 house for sale and just wishing I knew some people to ask. Thanks

Yup. Florida/N.Carolina seem to be prime destinations in the past few years.

Default South

Definitely South. I live in Paterson and there are like 3 houses on every block for sale. My neighbor said he bought (not believing that) a house in TX and is trying to sell his home now. I hate to tell him no one will buy it. It's not a good time to sell your house because it is definitely a buyer's market. Plus the location is something to be desired since all you hear about Paterson is the negative aspects. My mom wants to sell her home in a few years. Hopefully the market will be better and she can.

North! I know several people who researched and then moved to New Hampshire and Vermont. They did not want to miss the 4 seasons (which would happen down south) and it's N.H. I believe that has a very attractive tax situation. The people I know who retired and moved to Vermont are very happy as well. We are all Hunterdon County folks if that matters.

There are 4 seasons in many southern states, including the Carolinas, where many people are headed. I know a number of people going to Delaware (better taxes). I have several friends that just went to Atlanta area also.

Here in NC, we do have 4 seasons, however the winters are a bit warmer. If we get any snow accumulation, it usually melts the next day. I grew up in Whitehouse Station/Readington Twp. Where in Hunterdon do you live?

Eastern part of Raritan Twp. is where I live. We are very near Hillsborough Twp and the Somerset County line. We have nice views of the Sourland Mts. and there are still some farms out here, it is not too developed yet. I stand corrected about the 4 seasons in NC.

Well, I can speak of us. We're moving to NH. Less crowded, more peace, more cold. LESS TAXES. And I hope, better everything else (schools, quality of life, etc.).
