An Overview of Bergen, New Jersey Real Estate

Aug 4, 2008
If you are looking for a beautiful home that is close to New York City, the New Jersey real estate in Bergen County should probably be on your list of housing options. After all, being located in northeast New Jersey, Bergen County literally overlooks New York City across the Hudson River estuary. It is also home to some of the best shopping, parks, and cultural centers in New Jersey.

The population density in Bergen alone is a pretty good indicator of how popular the area has become. With almost 4,000 people per square mile, Bergen is the most populous county in New Jersey. Fortunately, there are more than a dozen county parks and two large state parks where residents can escape from the crowds and enjoy lakes, trails, mountains and rivers in the area. Blue laws that keep everything but grocery stores closed on Sunday also contribute to less traffic and more peace and quiet at least one day of the week.

Bergen is also one of the wealthiest counties in the nation. With a median household income of $65,241 dollars, Bergen residents often enjoy a high standard of living. Family incomes average even higher at about $76,000. Unfortunately, there is also a price for living in such a beautiful and affluent community. Part of the cost lies in housing prices while another contributing factor is high property and income taxes. After all, as a state, New Jersey has some of the heaviest tax burdens in the country and Bergen County is no exception. The median house price in the area is anywhere from $500,000 to $600,000 as well. Depending on the municipality you are interested in, it wouldn't be hard to find homes priced in the millions either.

At such a high price, Bergen County may not be within your budget, but if it is, there are definitely plenty of attractions in the area. In addition to the beauty and the economy in Bergen, your children will benefit from some of the best educational facilities in the country. Since Bergen is home to many different ethnicities and religions like Italian, Irish, Korean, Greek, African, Latin and Jewish residents, they will also be exposed to an abundant variety of cultures.

The real estate market is pretty diverse and immense though so you probably will need a Realtor to show you around if you are still interested in moving to the area.
