Asked by Cliff.alarcon82, North Bergen, NJ • Fri May 11, 2012
I'm a 30 yr old recently married young professional that want to buy his first home. We absolutely need 3 bds and at the very least 2 baths. We'd need a yard for the dog, and hopefully the property has a deck and porch. We haven't started looking but the towns we love are South Orange, Maplewood, Westfield and Morristown. We are looking to spend $315k as our max. We are willing to get a fixer upper if we can get it on the cheap and reno since I work in the building products industry and have contractor friends. We do not want to pay Montclair type taxes and would love to keep the taxes under $8k a year and still hopefully be in a good town for schools. We have also discussed going as far Northwest as Sparta if we can get more house/land for the money, but really love the downtown field of the above mentioned towns. Anyone have any advice as to other towns we should consider, or if any of this is realistic? Anyone done this or is this not reality? Thanks!
