Q: What Are the Pros and Cons of Living in New Jersey?

Q: What Are the Pros and Cons of Living in New Jersey?

Here are the main benefits and disadvantages of calling New Jersey home.

Today I’m taking a close look at some of the main advantages (and disadvantages) of living here in New Jersey. In my opinion, there are many more pros than cons, but we all know that with the good comes the bad. 

Here’s an outline of my full discussion, with timestamps so that you can skip around to the section(s) that interest you most:

0:35- The No. 1 pro to living in New Jersey

1:20- Another pro: The Jersey Shore and its many beaches (including my favorite, Diamond Beach)

3:07- Why gas pumps and school systems are both great advantages to living in the Garden State

4:25- The No. 1 con of living in New Jersey

4:55- Why we have to learn to live with heavy traffic and jug handles

6:09- Why our cost of living is higher, especially in North Jersey

6:49- Wrapping things up

I believe the pros outweigh the negatives by a longshot. If you have questions about living in New Jersey or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
