This is a bit early but my fiance and I are looking at moving to the Philadelphia area in what we believe may be a year or two. I am currently in the process of getting a federal job, but the process takes awhile. This job will be at the airport in Philadelphia. I will note, I am originally from Monmouth County, so I guess I am a little biased to wanting to move back to NJ. I would be willing to look in Pennsylvania too, but from what I saw all the prices seemed to be the same. I'd love to buy a house and from what we've been looking at Gibbstown, NJ seems affordable. Assuming my fiance is able to transfer jobs, we'd be looking at maybe making roughly $90k per year combined. I don't think buying a house will be happening immediately but what are some good areas to rent in? We pay $1,040 for a nice 2 bedroom now in Albany, NY. We do have a cat and a dog, as well (if that makes a difference). I spent a summer interning in Medford, NJ in college and loved the area but it seems the commute may be a lot to the airport.



Like I said, maybe it's too early to be asking these questions but I tend think maybe people living in the area may know of some places I haven't looked yet. Anyway, thanks for any input!

I'm amazed that you found it! You should get a prize for that.

I wouldn't be in a hurry to buy there. There's all sorts of industrial junk along the river. I'd live there, but I wouldn't want to be saddled with the burden of trying to sell.
