As someone who has rented in this community for over 20 years and cannot afford to move into a home of my own: this community has a large Jewish population that is willing to pay that much more for a home here than the average. There are Jewish schools all over the place and the Jewish community is willing to spend more to be near these brand new Jewish schools and synagogues here.

that depends upon your criteria for home valuation versus that of others.. There are people, believe or not, in this economy, who are willing to spend that much money for a home even though the infrastructure is inefficient, the amenities required, such as Food Markets, Movie Theatres, book store, are non existent.
