Good luck with your home search. It can be a lot of work especially if you are not familiar with the area.

Thanks for your well wishes. Yes, it’s a lot of work. We won’t be ready to make this move until next year around this time (we want to let our oldest finish middle school here) but in the meantime we are researching a ton and hopefully this summer we’ll get to do some drive-bys just to get a feel for the town and such.

Thanks for that information. It seems like Howell is a little over our budget for the homes that I lean towards I better start playing the lotto! Haha

Williamstown has a great reputation with schools. If you're looking for a new home without a HOA there are newer developments without them that are selling in the $200k range. I think one is reserves at twelve oaks. I'm not sure what taxes are on those homes, I'm in the next one over, a $400k home the taxes are about $12k. There are other homes in this town too if new isn't what you want. I have a great realtor that's not pushy if you'd like her info I'd gladly give it. She handles Washington Township too. I've repped too much today or I'd leave you her info in a rep

Thanks for the information! Those taxes sound extremely high, jeez Louise! We are looking into other states with much lower taxes as well. I don’t want to feel like I’m working to pour my every last penny into a house. We love to travel and explore and we definitely want to continue doing that. We now added down south to our radar. Please send the realtor information, we are definitely weighing all options.

Best!

If you want lower taxes, you are going to have to go to Delaware!
The one thing no one mentions but which I learned is that in Delaware there is 4% transfer fee on all home sales.

I was looking at new construction in southern NJ. Taxes were 2.8% of selling price. So $200K = $5600.
If you buy resale it may be less.

What parts of Delaware? I would have to see if I could transfer my CDL to Delaware along with all of the endorsements. I was looking into Pennsylvania until i saw my School Bus Endorsement wouldn’t transfer over.

The further south you go in Delaware the cheaper the prices are unless you are really close to the beach.

Why not Philly surburbs?


Schools are better. Price is not bad.

Compared to NJ, Pennsylvania property taxes are lower, but nowhere as low as Delaware.
