House Hunt Across New Jersey

I find it fascinating and frustrating that the housing prices in one state vary so widely that it's like shopping in Bel Air and North Carolina all within the same border.

I've been a frequent browser of ever since Rob and I got serious about our house hunt. And while we're getting THAT MUCH closer to THE house, I'm still out there looking for new listings. Curiosity reigned last night when I really should have been going to bed as I decided to scope out the type of house we could get within the same price range, but all over New Jersey. In a way, it's just unfair how much house you can get in some towns while others have nothing available! Take a look:

Criteria: $400,000$450,000, Central Air, Gas Heat, 3+ Beds

1. Alpine (one of the wealthiest towns in the country): Nothing available

2. Mount Olive Twp: 3 bedroom, 2.5 baths, $419,900

4. Chester Boro: 4 bedroom, 2.5 baths, $429,000

5. Morristown: 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, $439,000, townhome

6. Bernardsville: Nothing available

7. Northvale: 4 bedroom, 2 bath, $429,000

8. Hillsborough: 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, $409,000

9. Lambertville: 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, townhome, $419,900, 860 sq ft.

10. Princeton: 3 bedroom, 1 bath, $409,900, 1310 sq ft.

11. Bordentown: 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, $425,000

12. Spring Lake: Nothing

13. Point Pleasant: 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, $419,900, 1660 sq ft.

14. Voorhees: 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, $449,900, 3,000 sq ft.

15. Atlantic City: 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, townhome, $444,907, 1800 sq ft.

A common theme with houses that seem great and are in our range is that they have Oil heat which is just too expensive and too risky for us. We're getting there though!
