Default *Want to move! Hawaiians sent me here!*

I posted in Hawaii that I am looking for an exciting place to live that is dog friendly, located near water and has farmer's markets and independent coffee shops. They said to check out South New Jersey. So I'm checking it out! We are a couple starting out. We want to buy a house that has a nice yard, brick home wood floors. We need something from 150,000-250,000 price range. We don't mind fixing up homes. We just need a home that suits us. Anyone? What place in South New Jersey is like this?

Those Hawaiian's have great taste..unless it was a NJ realtor from south Jersey posing as a Hawaiian who sent you that way . In your price range...south is good or west toward PA. The closer you are to NYC.. the more money it takes!

Long Branch sounds nice.
Near the shore, nice town, diverse, and I'm sure you can find some house in that price range.

Thats pretty funny. Where did they recommend you to? The plastic sunbelt town of Swedesboro, NJ near the lovely Delaware River?

Toms River and Brick are close to the ocean, we have dog parks...can't say I know of a farmers market but there are some decent roadside stands.

The thing is, there aren't many jobs to be had.

Good luck.

Yes, South Jersey is a very hard place to find decent jobs. I'm in IT and will always have to go North for a job.
