Hello Friends,


I will be moving from UK to Montvale, NJ and looking for some advise. I have high school going daughter (9th Grade) and more important looking for easy transition for her. I'm ok to travel 40-50 mins each way but priority is her getting good school and spouse gets opportunity to work near by.


1. Which area we can consider to stay with good school district, more affordable rental etc. Looked at near by area to Monvale like Upper saddle river, Park ridge, Woodcliff. The rental was very high though good school district was good.


2. Not sure if it is advisable/possible to buy a town home or house straight away in 6-8 weeks


3. Was considering Parsippany, Montville, Pine Brook area? Any insights?


4. My spouse (teacher by profession) will get opportunity to work near by etc


I know too many questions but any help would highly be appreciated.


Thanks

We don’t know your budget or housing requirements but Montvale has many condo rentals at reasonable rents and has a good high school. I would not buy because you do not know where either of children will be in a few years and you may want to move either because you no longer need as many bedrooms, no longer need a good high school, want to move closer to wherever they are going to school or working.
Selling in real estate in nj is tough and expensive. The market has been going down so I would not buy unless you are ok with possibly taking a loss

Thanks agree buying may not be that easy. We are mostly looking for 2 B/2 B Condo or Apt with budget of $2000-$2300. Please suggest some rental sites which would have those options.

Take a look at https://www.njmls.com/ you can sort by rentals. Also, it takes about 3 months to buy a property here in the tri-state area, so many more unnecessary steps and red tape here, honestly it's ridiculous. This is not the norm in the rest of the country, by the way, where you can often close (take ownership) in less than 30 days.
