Too expensive - 8/14/2012
Residents in New Jersey pay too much in taxes, too much in car insurance, too much for housing, and have no extra quality of living to show for it. I was born and raised in this state but I can't wait to get Read More

out of control property taxes - 7/30/2012
The corruption in the county and state government is so entrenched that it will take at least a couple of decades to clean it up ,if it ever get cleaned. I live in East Windsor ,here the property taxes are out of control,sixtyone cent of everydollar goes towards the school district.( Iam sure most of it goes toward paying salary and benefits and less towards in any education)

Here they over inflate your house price so they can come back and raise your property taxes every year to pay for all the pensions and the so called benefits of the state employees.( I call it milking the cows).

I don,t know why anyone would even consider buying a home in New Jersey.Read More

Property Taxes - 7/25/2012
New Jersey was a great state to grow up in. But property taxes will be its undoing. It has become a cash cow for municipalities. Need more money? Raise property Taxes! Want to add a bathroom or make your home nicer with some addition...Raise property taxes. Soon, there will only be the very rich and the very poor living in this state. So sad that I cannot afford to retire Read More

Too expensive to live in New Jersey - 6/8/2012
I'm a native of New Jersey and nearing retirement age. The cost of taxes and car insurance is way too expensive and my husband and I are considering moving south. We are interested in North or South Carolina but don't know where to start. I'd like to live where the cost of living is low. Suburbs of either Charleston or Myrtle Beach. Another consideration is a suburb of Raleigh. Any Read More

Going to Hell Quick, Fast, & in a hurry - 1/24/2012
I have lived in NJ all of my 40 years and am truly disappointed of the decline of living standards in the southern part of the state. Especially Cumberland County. I grew up when we could leave our windows open and feel the night breeze and if you fell asleep under the tree in your yard you weren't raped or robbed. At the very least for paying the highest property taxes and darn near highest car insurance in the nation one should at least expect to be able to read the paper without finding out that another senior citizen has gotten beaten up and robbed. This town, Bridgeton, is so small that I live in that if you blink while driving you pass right through it. Not a problem in my book. However, that darn small with so many police NO ONE should be getting attacked in broad daylight as if we were in Chicago or something. Granted there is crime everywhere in the world. It's just going to be so because sin does exist. I don't know what disgust me most the lack of feeling safe anymore, Read More

Central New Jersey - 1/10/2012
Central New Jersey has many wonderful attributes. It's close proximity to beaches and NYC are the top features! Schools are excellent as well.
Neighborhoods are friendly and safe in the Monmouth County area.

New Jersey - 12/7/2011
In my opinion New Jersey's most appealing attribute is it's proximity to 2 metropolitian areas, the coastline & beaches, and the Pocono Mountains, and Atlantic City. The state has many exclusive affluent places to live, but as a whole the state is not worth it. The tax burden is near the top (if not the highest) in the country. The urban areas have been neglected/ decaying for years, the population density has pitted poverty right next to plenty and generaaly speaking the people seem to be proud of their "Jersey Attitudes" which at best could be described as inconsiderate and rude if not outright hostile towards eachother. Still, as far as places in the Northeast, New Jersey is certainly not the worst place on the Read More
