Well to be honest with you, the area is QUICKLY falling apart, yet the taxes are continually increasing!! I moved out of Wantage Twp.(Sussex, Nj) 3 years ago to NC where the cost of living was much better. Sussex county is a beautiful place to raise your children, however it is HORRIBLE in the winter to travel the unkept roads, the cost to heat your home is out of site, and the school systems are HORRIBLE!! My mother was a teacher in the Sussex Wantage school system for her whole teaching career, and the teachers she is still friends with are MISERABLE!! Schools are falling apart, administration is awful, and like I said...taxes are increasing but you are getting NOTHING for your money. I don't think that you will find a townhouse in a great neighborhood for the reasonable price, however you have to take the good with the bad......you sacrafice cost for education...is it worth it??? Hope this helps!
