I AGREE WITH THE PREVIOUS ANSWER. BERGENFIELD IS A SAFE GOOD TOWN. THE TAXES ARE HIGHER AND THAT IS THE REASON MANY PEOPLE ARE AVOIDING TP PORCHASE SOME PROPERTIES AND ALSO IS A REASON FOR PEOPLE TO MOVE OUT WHEN THEY ARE TIGHT WITH MONEY. BERGENFIELD IS COMPARABLE TO OTHER TOWNS NEARBY AND IS CLOSE TO EVERYTHING.

Bergenfield, NJ is NOT a town in decline -- it is a very stable middle-class community with good commuting to NYC, good schools, and proximity to other Bergen County towns for shopping and recreation for children. I have listed and sold a number of homes there over the past few years, and while the property taxes are a little high (attributed to balance of commercial versus residential property, the cost of good public schools & municipal services, etc.), this is offset in some part by slightly lower asking prices.

If you would like to look at properties, by all means give me a call or email me, and my team & I (who live and work locally in this part of Bergen County) will be happy to assist you in your search!

Most of the country is witnessing a decling real estate market, heres an article I published online explaining why prices will be dropping in 2010 : http://flipping-real-estate.suite101.com/article.cfm/2010_re…

For more details you can read why prices may drop for the next ten years straight: http://mortgagesloans.suite101.com/article.cfm/foreclosures-…

If you feel that Bergenfield may have something wrong other then declining property values try checking out the info available on http://www.citydata.com and see what they say about the place.
