The hard truth is that property taxes go up in EVERY township in New Jersey (and in other states as well for the most part). However, our Governor signed a law (I think in 2010) which limits the increases to a max of 2% annually (down from 4% under Corzine)
However, with the mortgage interest rates SOOOO low, (almost ridiculously low), it more than makes up for the property tax increases, and the interest rate remains the same for the life of your loan (or until you sell)
So, knowing this, does it help you make a decision to buy or not to buy???
