Hello Amanda,
At this price range we do have homes for sale, but $300k is an entry price. Most of the houses will need some work. I would recomend you to look at Fair Lawn, Dumont, Saddle Brook, we have few listings in Leonia, Cresskill , and Westwood. If you are interesting to know more about these houses, e-mail me at or call at 201-315-0143 and I'd be happy to send you this info.
Good luck!

A year ago I would have said No! But with the drop in house prices there are a number of homes available in your price rnge. Almost any town in Bergen county would have either a bus to the Port Authority bus terminal or a train with connections to Penn Station both on the West Side.
Bergenfield, Fairlawn, Elmwood Park, Saddle Brook, Maywood or Rochelle Park would be good place to start looking for houses in your price range. Trust me - I have 3 or 4 customers that I am helping at the moment in that price range.

Hi Amanda,

Yes you can! You obviously understand that you're not getting a palace, but a decent place as you describe. Towns like North Arlington, Lyndhurst, East Rutherford and Rutherford (there's a foreclosure Coming) may offer several choices. Keep looking in site such as this one and you will find something. Best of luck!
