I have lived in Glen Rock for 20 + years and we went through a rennovation where we had to move out. I had always heard the train and after a while you dont even notice it. But when we had to rent for 7 months I had to find a home that was as close to the train as we currently are, so that my husband could walk there. We ended up renting house across the street fromt the Main line train right by town and it was a wonderful experience. We loved living there for that 7 months!! So my answer to your train question is Glen Rock is the town it is because of the wonderful easy trains/bus commute to manhattan, the warmth of a small town and amazing schools. So I would not hesistate to invest in buying a home or a townhouse in Glen Rock. If you have any other questions that you need answer's too, here is my direct line 201.280.9615 and my email I can promise you that you will love Glen Rock!!! ... more

Hi Ann,
According to the tax records, it's 1880 sq.ft. The only way to know for sure is to actually
measure. Measuring is also a part of the appraisal. Concord is one of the most desirable
streets in town. As a local resident since 1983, I would be delighted to answer any
questions you may have about this great town and to show you the property,
All the best,
Mirjana Bogovich

Greetings Sackey,

I am responding to your request to purchase a home based on your criteria. If you would like to consider purchasing a home in Essex county, this is an area I focus on. Commuters to NYC have the option of taking the midtown direct train to NYC or buses to Port Authority. Commuting time varies about 30 to 40 minutes depending on the town. I specialize in working with both buyers and sellers when it comes to short sales. Before you make a decision, feel free to check out agent's profiles which are right here on Trulia.

Best of luck to you and your family.

First, don't worry about what they paid for it, that has no bearing on what it's worth today. Ask your agent to show you what else is for sale in your price range and compare to the house you are looking at. Ask for some comps and ask your agent to suggest where they feel the house would actually sell for. ... more

Hi Susie,

It depends on how you define nice. A 2BR garden apartment in Glen Rock will be north of $1,500 and there aren't that many around. A decent 3BR in a quiet residential area in Glen Rock rents for $2,500 minimum and you are still paying the property taxes through the rent. To escape high taxes within a town, you sort of have to leave... completely. Moving to a rental fails to avoid the taxes, and you lose a huge tax deduction also.

Here are the currently available rentals listed in in Glen Rock:…

Good luck!

Your taxes will increase, how much depends on the extent of the renovations. Check with the tax assessor in Glen Rock. they may be able to give you some idea of how much the increase might be.

Steve answered:
I just moved into Glen Rock and think it's the best town we could have chosen by far. My neighbors are nice, the schools are excellent and the town has a great small-town feel. My commute into the city is fantastic. And though I agree with everything the two others have said, I will disagree that finding parking for the commute is difficult. There are plenty of parking spots in the commuter lots, most of which are designated for Glen Rock only residents. Even if you had to park near one train line and walk to the other (which happens occasionally), the walk is < 0.25 mile. The pool, by the way, is the envy of all the surrounding towns. We didn't know about this before we moved in. But now that we've been there, it's like going on vacation. ... more
