I am no Alpine expert, but you will be hardpressed to find many, or any homes much under 1 million..........for the most part, they seem to start from around 1.6 million......and range........ all the way to $56,000,000.!
Alpine is rather a unique town!
"In 2010, Forbes listed Alpine as 4th in its listing of "America's Most Expensive ZIP Codes", with a median home price of $3,814,885. In 2009, Forbes ranked Alpine first, along with Greenwich, Connecticut, with a median home price of $4.14 million."
With your price rage, youre better off checking out Paramus.....Closter...Cresskill....Tenafly....maybe Mahwah and other such Bergen County towns.
Hopefully, a local agent will come along who can be more specific.
