My partner Sharon and work in the Essex/Morris county. There are many 55+ options in your price range in those counties You also need to find out what type of maintenace fees you are planing on. Additionally you need to get a pre approval from a lender. As far as commute is concerned there are many train and bus services from those two towns. We are alway available by email or phone please feel free to contact us with any quesions or to look at some options.

I work in Morris County New Jersey... there are many Adult 55 and older places to choose from. Morris County is one of the top rated places to live in the state. There is ample transit and you can get to the Jersey shore... Pennsylvania... New York State... the City ....all in under 1 hour. The prices are right where you want them to be...! and if you like do some boating on Lake Hoppatcong... our largest lake...!
Thank you
All The Best:

Hi Theresa, Jeannie Feenick back with some more specifics - a search of your specifications -condo or townhome, 2 bedroom minimum, price $500,000 or less, and taxes $5,000 yields the following in the communties I mentioned:

Bedminster: 48 choices;
Basking Ridge: 22 choices

As you can see there are loads of options. Let me hear from you Theresa. I know the area well and would be honored to assist you and your husband in your search and purchase. The nice thing about "The Hills" as a life style choice is that it is very lively - many people out walking, varied ages, etc, conveniences such as shopping, restaurants etc very accessible. But given your specifications, we can also explore age restricted communities that are 55 and up.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Theresa, Jeannie Feenick with Weichert Realtors here. There are loads of options available to you - one community that comes to mind is Bedminster given its relatively low tax rate. Train service is availabe nearby and there are many condo and townhome options availabe in what is called "The Hills", one of, if not the largest Planned Unit Development (PUD) in the country. There are two sides, the Bedminster side and the other is the Basking Ridge side. The later is priced higher and taxes are bit higher as well.

I will be back to you with more specific feedback given your specifications, but for now I wanted to respond with an encouraging note and express my sincere interest in assisting you with your search and purchase.

I invite you to visit my website http://www.feenick.com where you can search for properties and connect to helpful info and links. You'll find the NJ transit link there among others. You can reach me from here, from my website or call my cell 908-337-0943.
