Ever wondered what are the best towns to live in? New Jersey is definitely at the top, but which towns are better than others?

We came across this ranking in the New Jersey Monthly magazine and were pleasantly surprised to see our towns among the top 50!


There were 11 things the magazine took into account when creating this classification, namely:

  1. Average property tax in 2016
  2. Average property tax change since 2014
  3. Effective property tax rate in 2016
  4. 3 year average debt per capita
  5. Median home sales price in 2016
  6. Median price change since 2014
  7. Average days on market in 2016
  8. Crime rate
  9. ASK4 % proficient or advanced in 2016
  10. ASK8 % proficient or advanced in 2016
  11. NJM Top High Schools rank in 2016
