I was born in Jersey and have family still living there. I agree out west there is seom beautiful rural areas. Unfrotunately none of my family lives there. Thus if we visit we have to visit in Secaucus, East Rutherford or Tom's River (not too bad).

Get a kick out of people defending NJ. My family all does it...until they come visit us at the beach in Florida. Then they are wondering how they can get out!
I tell them it's usually terrible here. "The bugs make it so you can't go outside" is the line that works the best. Then I pepper it with the humidity and the foreigners. That usually gets them back on their Jet Blue flight back to lovely Newark, NJ. OLOLOLOLOLOLLLL

Florida in the winter, DE in the summer.

I don't mind people moving here, but don't try to change everything to make it just like where you left. Move somewhere to assimilate to the way it is. We don't want/need everything to be made "better."

My Alabama fish camp (lake house) is appraised at $389K, and the property taxes are $1,147 per year.

My 5200 square foot city house with two double car garages has no property taxes because my wife is disabled.

Our property taxes are not apt to increase because it would require a referendum per an outdated state constitution. And Alabama citizens desire less government--and they're getting it. About the only tax they're going to get is an increase in the gas tax about a dime per gallon.

Hell taxes in Boca Raton area on the east coast and North Venice on the west outpace me in NJ by a few K per house.

North Venice on the west coast, home 500-600K = 10K in property taxes.
My home in NJ, reported value 575k, $6200 property taxes.
Yoir taxes are so low compared to evwry wh ere else in NJ.

Sadly it is just a matter of time before the people fleeing higher taxes ruin the states they go to with their old policies and voting habit.

You can see Florida tilting the other direction. The affordability will also be screwed up by people with inflated pensions coming to roost drive up the prices.

And we're full up too, you stay in Lincoln Park where you are.

A whopping 63% of NJ moves per (united van lines/in-out of state) are moves out of state, that is a HUGE number.

My house is close to $400k and I pay $8k a year in taxes. Still too much in my opinion but I'm grateful all things considered. My house, one county over, would be $11k.
I've seen these low property taxes in many case mainly due to a home not having been reassessed after major renovations but eventually it catches up.
My son moved into his home 10 years ago and renovated two bathrooms and entire kitchen with removals of walls to enlarge it. The building inspectors finished with final inspections and signed off on permits.
Then about 7 years later the tax assessor came a calling and his property tax went up from $8400 to just over $11500.

I live in South Jersey and pay $6k in taxes on a house I might be able to get $200k for on a good day. And my taxes aren't that bad compared to surrounding areas. It has nothing to do with north or south Jersey.

I lived in Florida for 6 years moved back to Jersey 12 years ago. My experience is it is way easier to earn a living in Jersey than Florida. Going to Florida with money is the way to go. There are some greedy people/businesses in Florida.

Hey Rags. Berkeley just increased my assessment by $88,000. I am going to use some of your posts describing my neighborhood as evidence in my tax appeal.

My wife and I live in northern Deleware we own a buisness in this state and have a place in lower deleware. We love the taxes here. we also have a few wetland marshes in southern NJ we bought years ago for waterfowl hunting and lease approximately 2,000 ac of farmland, the taxes on the marsh are approximately $1,000 per year and during high tide it’s under water, low tide it’s mud flats. The taxes on the farmland aren’t too bad but it’s farmed assessed which helps considerably. We would love to move to jersey on one of the farms but could not afford it with a 2,000sq ft house the taxes on the house would be $8,000 alone. Deleware is a great state but a lot of northern Jersey and New Yorkers moving in because of our taxes and tax free shopping.

Was thinking the same thing. My assessed value is 417k on my house I just paid 600k for. Taxes are still undecided because it’s new construction and this town is ridiculous but I’m somewhere from 10-11. Small 1/3 acre lot. No water. No nothing. A real joke.

take a video as you drive in from Veeder and then use that as justification for decreasing the assessment. I havn't been down Ronald since the summer but at the time looked like the whole neighborhood was under construction.
