I'm currently researching areas to move to in South Jersey, particularly Gloucester and Camden counties (mainly Gloucester). I am looking for communities that are diverse, have good elementary schools (a 5 or more on the greatschools website if that helps), low crime and has relatively low taxes (less than $6,500 or close to). Any help would be appreciated!

Depending on what you want, there are a large variety of communities in Gloucester and Camden County. I personally live in Gloucester County, but I have ties to Camden County as well. If you want better access to Philly and a good downtown area, I would try places like Collingswood and Haddon Twp. Their taxes are lower than Haddonfield and Moorestown, but their schools are still average/above average and they're more diverse. However, the taxes in Gloucester County are much lower than anything in Camden County, especially in West Deptford/Logan areas. If you want an older, more American town, you could try Wenonah or Pitman. Wenonah elementary is currently rated 9 on GreatSchools, but taxes reflect that. Mullica Hill is also nice too.

I live in Collingswood. Very nice, close to everything. property sizes are small. My 1500 sq in rowhouse is just under $6k / year in taxes.

Love Collingswood, too. Going to get a smaller house here but staying here for the long haul. Much like a "village" to the city, it has everything.
