There are several nice places to live. Depends on what type of community you are looking for, how much are you looking to spend on housing, how big of a town, etc.

Give me more info and I will try to help you out. I am a life long resident so I might be able to help.

Well right now I am looking to rent. I am a single Mom so a good school district is very important. I am hoping to not to have to pay more than 1200/mo for rent. And I am only interested in a townhouse, duplex, multiplex or single family home to rent. No apartments!!!! I would love to be as close Philly as I can. Is any of this feasible?

Thx for your help!!!!

Default The best place to live!!!!! Glouster County!!!!!!

Living up North, and missing Glouster county on a daily basis (for far too many years), I can tell you that Glouster County, NJ is a great place to live! Just tell me what your're looking for - city - country - or a city/country mix (I already know you have children), so if you tell me what you're looking for...........I'm sure I can help! If not, I can definately direct you to good people that can! God Bless and good luck!

thx Mar001! I am a city girl at heart! so if I can have city atmosphere that is safe and affordable then that would be ideal! If not then I can handle a city/country mix. I am planning on visiting Jersey in April to check it out. So I appreciate all your help and input!

You might try Washington Twp. its about 25 minutes from the city. IF you are willing to live outside of Gloucester Co. you might want to try West Deptford- they are closer to the city and have good schools. Rent should be in that amount for both of those areas.

Thanks so much! I will put that on my list when I go up to visit.

Default Let's start with the basics!

Where are you planning on working? A city/country mix can take place in a whole lot of Glouster County towns - you've got your Mullica Hill, Woodstown, (both GREAT towns to raise children in), but then there's also Mantua, and a bunch of towns out that way, then again, if your're working more torwards the Glassboro way, you've got Washington Twnshp - a real class town......or if your're more towards Vineland or Bridgetown.......you've got a lot more choices..............just tell me where you're gonna work.........and I'll try to set you up!

We just bought in Williamstown at Willow Woods by Richmond Homes. We went with the Amherst model.

Hubby & I walked every new home community except Paparones Carriage Glen and found this one to have the nicest house layout that screamed "this is it" to us as well as nice sized properties. They have a few houses ready or semi ready, another Amherst on Ripley that you may be able to get a deal on. Talk to Pat, you can let her know that her most favorite pain in the butt person recommended them.
