So NJ saw the revitalization of Hoboken, Jersey City, Asbury Park over the last 10-15 years. What's next? I'm hearing Bayonne and my Real Estate Agent said Sayreville will be going through a transformation.

I don't think that Jersey City is done. Lot of development going on in the Heights and, by extension, the part of Union City that used to be "West Hoboken" back in the day. We will see what the Hoboken Heights project on Manhattan Ave brings. Hoboken is crazy expensive these days as is downtown JC and most of Manhattan - could see some sprawl continue out these ways and they are out of the flood zone which is a huge plus vs. most of Hoboken. Union City is about to undergo its first tax reassessment in over 30 years which could shake things up.

What does everyone think about Verona? It's an area that I want to keep my eye on over the next few years. It's already a really good town, but I am thinking that more and more people are getting priced out of Montclair and Verona can continue to be the "diet" version of that (with better schools) if the downtown continues to grow.

Also think that a place like Denville has a ton of potential to grow.

Most immediate is probably Atlantic City.

Harrison, Dover, and Paramus prices have blown through the roof faster than any other town in Bergen County. They’re transforming from “rich” to “richer”…

I will certainly say that Dover is a nice town, overlooked and has certainly exceeded my expectations. My perception of Dover was its a sketch area by just driving through part of the downtown area that's been overrun by illegals and hispanics. After driving through of much of the town, love some of the neighborhoods, architecture of the homes and what it offers.

In northern NJ, it should be Hackensack:

County seat
Has a train station and bus terminal
Major hospital
FDU
Walkable downtown (Main St)
Has both city and suburban features depending on which part of town you’re in
Riverside square mall (and quick drive to all the Paramus shopping areas)
Easy access to route 80, route 4, and NJT

If they make the city into an attractive place to live in for the many doctors and lawyers who are going there daily anyway, it would be an affluent city

Denville certainly has a lot of potential to grow. Right now, its really a "hidden gem" and if you know, you know. The downtown there, while nice, has a lot of opportunity to grow aggressively, especially with the 700-800 $750k-$2M townhouses they are building a mile away in Morris Plains. Also, some open land to build housing. Its setup between rt. 287, 80, 46, 10, has a train station or quicker access via bus, and some nature that is only unique to that area but don't want to give it away.

Atlantic City is a great example of what poor management does. I always thought that AC had at least as much potential as Vegas. It has a prime beach/shore location. Despite this, it has simply been run into the ground. If anyone ever put some effort into it we could find great potential. Unfortunately, it's late for that now because so much gambling competition has come up in the past few decades.
