so high? I can't get over the difference between Delaware and Jersey and even Pennsylvania they are half of what new jersey needs. I have had people tell me there are some towns where real estate taxes are lower, some quite lower then other Jerset towns.

Look in the NYC market of NJ (which is central and northern NJ) on prices, then write again.

I should know as I lived in that region for 50 plus years.

New Jersey on the whole IS NOT CHEAP but it does have its great points in exchange if one can afford it.

Also what's an acceptable RE tax range for you?

Default Well, I'm not looking

for tax rates like $700.00 that I have seen in south Delaware but say $3500.00 or so is my idea of reasonable. Thanks for the inquiry.

Delaware has a higher state income tax than NJ, which takes away a lot of the benefit of its low property taxes. As for NJ, taxes are generally high everywhere.

Default Answer is No

if you move to NJ you'll pay higher property taxes than in Delaware. There are some places more expensive than others, but nowhere where they aren't high (especially if what you're comparing them to is DE). If you own a 3 BR house in a normal suburban town, on a normal lot, and pay less than $7k/year, your taxes are low for NJ.

NJGOAT has mentioned that the taxes in Logan Township are significantly lower than other areas due to the unusually large commercial base in the Township.

Camden???

You need to expect to pay a large sum of money in prop taxes no matter where you are in NJ. Mine are 9k. Good luck.

Correct that Logan is cheaper...

Deptford is cheaper than our prior house in Camden County. The mall and all of the stores pay into it.
