Just search. Any normal savvy people can find it.

I posted many here before.


Nj real estate is so cheap but tax is too high.


Better to move out unless you can only survive near nyc.

Go ahead, I’ll wait. Should be able to build my own house in the time it takes you to find it.

I didn’t find a single 2 br condo under $150,000 in all of Bergen County, and only 6 1 br under that price.

You can try the Pointe at Galloping in Union (not Union City). There is an NJ Transit bus stop in front of the complex. No traffic and you are at Port Authority in 35 min. Realistically, traffic is the norm so maybe average an hour and change. You can also drive to the train station In Union. Not sure how long the trip is but you have to transfer trains in Newark.

R/E prices are inflated atm because of low inventory. Here's a unit that sold a year ago: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/4...40076878_zpid/

You can also try Roselle Park. Did a quick search on Zillow and found this unit near the train station.
What do you think of this 1 bd • 1 ba • -- sqft home I found on Zillow? https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2...83068238_zpid/

Im thinking Union County is more laid back, not totally but much better than further North closer to Manhattan and similarly accessible, my thoughts.

setup your zillow up for 1 and 2 bedrooms and set your 150k budget and then draw on the app the areas you want to be notified of when a property becomes available.

Yes you draw the area (of course you can pick counties and specific suburbs as well - but drawing is very convenient!)

East Orange, Orange, Newark. You won't like what you see but it exists.

Agree with this. Even the best towns have a few dumpy old condo buildings with inexpensive units. Here are a few.

Certainly not Bergen County, but Edison has a huge supply of housing and there are definitely some in your price range.

I submit that all of New Jersey is affordable. If that were not true, unaffordable areas would be devoid of people living there.
