I don't know where you heard that, I hope it wasn't from a Realtor! Tuckerton Meadows is a small community, with professional management. Taxes are reasonable (for NJ!), it has mass transportation (Bus) and it's part of the Pinelands Regional School system.
Take at look at the properties in this link...these are the units currently for sale in Tuckerton Meadows. As you'll see from the pictures, the homes and neighborhood is well kept.
If you'd like to check out any of these homes or others for sale in Tuckerton or southern Ocean County, contact me.
