Mercer County offers affordable housing and reasonable commuting

Commuting.  I doubt that anyone really likes to do it, but somehow, it has become one of our realities.  As cities become more crowded and less affordable, people flee to the suburbs, seeking hometown living, tighter knit communities, local schools, and green, open spaces.  While families were the first to seek the small town amenities, no more are they just for family-life.  Singles, marrieds, single parents and grandparents alike are enjoying a slower paced life and have happily adjusted to the once feared commute.

According to CNN Money, there may be another reason that the commute has become more attractive to more people, especially here in New Jersey.  That reason, according to CNN is affordability.  They declared New York City as the least affordable place to buy a house.  Median income is $64,800 and median home price is $419,000.  That's a tough gap to cover. 

Lucky for New York employees, Mercer County is only an hour commute away! Think about how wonderful it will be to live in a quiet suburb and raise a family.  If you are single, think how the slower pace allows you to form relationships, not merely pass through them.  Most of all, think about the value you will have in your New Jersey home - value that will increase over time as  you add to your bank account, invest in your future, and still have the resource to live life to its fullest.

Don't you want to find out more? Take a look at some of the possibilities at NJ Homesource or call me at (609) 658-2612 for a personal preview.  I'm ready to answer your questions and I really look forward to hearing from you today.  Thanks!

National Night Out showcases New Jersey community

Last Tuesday was National Night Out, a celebration of safety in our neighborhoods. It was a time for homeowner's associations, watch captains, civic organizations, police and fire departments and regular citizens like you and me to acknowledge the resources that make our community a great place to live.

I always believe that community starts with the people and this picture from Jackson Township's National Night Out really says it all. It ie easy to see how everyone is engaged. Central New Jersey is the place to live, work and raise a family.

We care about our families; we care about our neighbors, and we care about our community. I am proud to call New Jersey home.
