Asked by Nick, Fair Lawn, NJ Wed Jan 9, 2008

I am looking to buy a house for $500,000-$550,000 somewhere between Fair Lawn and Ramapo, NJ... Small, 3-4 bedrooms, in 5 to 7 months time frame. What town would be the best choice for me? The important factors: public schools rating, decent neighborhood, proximity to: schools, NJ Rail Road (to Hoboken), Ramapo College, parks and maybe Ridgewood “downtown”. And, definitely, the best value for the money, however prefer smaller but in better condition over larger but older building. Currently renting in Fair Lawn (lease until August), and love it (not as Ridgewood though), but would like to have shorter commute for my wife to Ramapo.

Mahwah has just been sited at THE BEST place to Live in Bergen County by NJ Monthly Magazine based on a variety of factors including schools, taxes, homeprices, etc. And, nearby Oakland was also sited in the top 50 best locations by Money Magazine so...you would do well to look in and around the area in addition to RAMSEY to get the most for your money and what exactly suites your particular needs.

If you have specific questions and want help tailored to YOUR individual needs, please don't hesitate to contact me. I live and work in the area and I am happy to help you find your new home.
