Help the community by answering this question:


I wouldnt move there If I were you, I lived there for 8 yrs & just moved last year. The place is a dump, alot of undesirables & alot of section 8. The school system is HORRENDOUS, do your homewrork especially if you have kids. Research the schools in the town & trust me youll think twice, everything you hear & read about Keansburg online is completely true. People & RE agents will NEVER be honest about Keansburg cause they wanna make their commission, or cause they live there & are in complete denial about their town. Trust me I am blatantly honest & dont care who likes it, I have 4 kids & was there 8 yrs.................its a sh*thole!!! Horrible schools, alot of drugs, people with mental issues & alot of individuals fresh outta jail. Do yourself a favor & look elsewhere...............

Actually...I have no school-aged children,, hate paying high school taxes, and prefer gritty, blue collar 'real' neighborhoods to snooty places that examine the length of your grass. Thank you - you have actually confirmed that this is a place I DO want to move to!

Hi, I was reading through your questions and answers, and those realtors were rude, I agree. I am trying to find something in one of the "adult communities" and find it difficult to get info too. Keansburg used to be considered pretty run down, don't know hard it got hit by the storm, but I don't think there are all the rules/regulations because it's not one of the "communities." Good luck with your search.

Average Selling Price: $90,996
Median Selling Price: $79,950

Email me and I'd be glad to send you general information about Keansburg,
