Hi,

I live in Washington Township (gloucester county) and I am looking into purchasing a home in the near future. Since I am in no rush,(We are renting and lease expires in March of '08) I want to do my research on different towns. I came across of Williamstown and wanted to know if anyone had any info on schools, crimes and any other info.

Houses seems that they are reducing in prices, I guess b/c of the market, but taxes are not.

I am looking for a town that have great schools (two youngs girls ages:10 & 4) and low crimes.

any info. would be very helpful

Thanks-

Yes, your right. Housing prices are dropping. Great for buyers! To find out information on schools in Williamstown try this link: Monroe Township Public Schools - Williamstown, New Jersey

Williamstown is a quite community. A lot of the schools are new. If you are planning to use a realtor to assist in your home search. please feel free to call me.

check with Williamstown's Chamber of Commerce and since you live so close you can go the the schools and request info ( also look around) - Schools seem good but haven't caught up with the reputation of Washington twp yet & don't know why. Won't be long before I'll be back in that area myself.

I did researched on the schools, and they met my specifications.....Yes, they don't meet Washington twp yet, but Washington twp is getting too crowded. I just want to find out what section of Williamstown should I stick too or it doesn't matter.

Any more info. can be helpful..
Thanks-

Hello All,

My family and I just moved to Williamstown from Philadelphia. I chose Williamstown over Washington Twp because of the schools. My kids are 13 (7th grade) & 10 (5th grade) and Williamstown met all of our specifications. My kids are so happy that they'll attend public school and wear regular clothes (they're coming from catholic school) they don't know what to do with themselves. My son has already joined the football team over here (Braves) and we're looking into soccer for my daughter.

Yes, taxes are high, but it's cheaper than the tuition we were paying. Plus, we get a bigger house, plenty of yard and a nice place to call home.

MBrown29 I think we've spoke b4 a couple of months ago....I'm the one that purchased my home in Glen Eyre....feel free to PM me whenever you like.
