There are the popular towns that most New Yorkers hear about that rate as New Jersey's cultural and architecturally prominent hubs and those are, of course, Ridgewood, Montclair, Summit, Westfield and Morristown and Bernardsville. They truly have the town center feeling, often with a green or a significant point which draws interest either with great shops, restaurants or entertainment. Demand can often leave the supply of good homes in these towns waning since the best ones still move off the shelf pretty quickly. Towns that are worth taking a look at are Nutley, Verona, The Caldwells, and in Morris County
Morris Plains and Montville and, interestingly East Hanover which boasts very low taxes but a good school system. If you want to stick to the train lines (the Boonton line) where access to the city is within 45 minutes then the farthest you should venture is Morristown , Convent Station, Madison, Chatham, South Orange or Montville (Towaco area train station), Montclair or Clifton.

for routes but train towns do tend to be a bit pricier.

Contact me for further information If you need community reports on any of the towns you are interested in, I will be happy to send complete demographic information along with school reports - elementary I see.
For out-of-towners, we offer a comprehensive tour of area communities so that you can concentrate on the ones you like. It makes it easier to pare down your search criteria; and when a home arrives on the market in an area you like, we go out an inspect it first for you and send you photos of the unique features along with a critique to help you decide if you want to preview the home yourself. It cuts down on a lot of time seeing homes you may not like.
