Low taxes, but not really.

For most of these towns, there are some pretty sizable factors that keep taxes low, but are largely irrelevant for the rest of NJ. From the Star Ledger:

Here are the 30 N.J. towns with the lowest property taxes

Last week we sorted through New Jersey’s latest property tax data to show you the 30 towns with the highest average property tax bills. Here, we look at the 30 towns with the lowest average property tax bills.

Of course, average property tax bills are just one way to compare municipalities’ property tax burdens. Unlike the tax rate, the average tax bills also factors in property values. But it gives you a good idea of what people are really paying.

The average homeowners in all of these towns are paying well below the state average, $8,690.

There are a couple of new municipalities on this year’s list. Vineland and West Wildwood dropped of the lowest property tax list this time.

    We’re letting a man who couldn’t successfully pay off an adult star negotiate with a nuclear-armed North Korea.

    We let a man who stupidly paid off our sworn enemy (Iran), unsuccessfully deter their nuclear program. Death to America (we take Amex).

    Perhaps we need to consider how the household shifts impact demand for types of housing.

    Obama was so great he won a Nobel Prize before actually doing anything.

    Anyone see the new Astral tequila commercials, featuring the previous “Most Interesting Man in the World.”

    I imagine the dialog went something like this.

    Aide: President Obama, we have great news for you, you are being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize!

    Obama: But I haven’t yet achieved world peace.

    Aide: They say that they have faith in you!

    Obama: This calls for tequila!

    p.ussy moana,

    You’re man Oblammy was a cuck; a boring do-nothing beat fish. Dems have become the party of freaks. ISIS is wiped out and NK is coming to the table. By the way, I’m getting recruiters by the score contacting me and this was void for a decade. Keep wishing for hope and change.

    TAMPA – Hamburger Mary’s restaurant may need to cough up $1.5 million to a customer, who claims she was injured by a drag queen’s fake breast. OK, so here we go: The customer was eating her meal, celebrating a friend’s birthday in May 2015, when the restaurant’s performer grabbed her by the head and “wiggled her breast against the plaintiff’s face and head eight times, “according to court papers. Then, the queen violently “pounded” the woman’s face in her fake boob another nine times. Unclear who was counting all these alleged attacks, but the woman then said she needed to go to the ER, suffering from intense headaches from the boom, boom, boom.

    Awwwww lil racist Gary finding a need for 3rd shift supervisors at the BK – winning!

    What a great buy that $10 trillion worth of hope and change was. The best thing you can say about Obama is that his “strategic patience” got us to Trump.

  9. Ex-Jersey says:

    The electorate wanted to blow up the political system so they lobbed the bomb Trump into the mix. Way to early to assess anything other than the fact that he’s gross, his followers apparently consume Russian propaganda like breakfast cereal…and he’s a loose canon. Boooom

    ‘I hesitate to talk about all schools in general because schools are made up of individual students attending them,’ Stahl said at one point, notwithstanding her agency’s mission of improving education nationally.

    ‘Michigan schools need to do better. There is no doubt about it,’ she said.

    ‘Have you seen the really bad schools? Maybe try to figure out what they’re doing?’ Stahl asked, continuing to press her.

    ‘I have not, I have not, I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming,’ she said.

  11. Ex-Jersey says:

    Trump’s a National embarrassment.

  12. nwnj says:

    Ex jers you got it half right. Trump is a response to dysfunction and not the cause. Russian propaganda is a boogeyman…

    Your mocking somebody who works this shift? Nice.

    Interesting thing about Musk – he’s very popular with the “anti-corporate welfare” crowd yet his current enterprises exist because of corporate welfare and government support. The left isn’t really against corporate welfare, they just want to make sure the subsidies support their favorite interests, not other people’s. Much like deficit spending. Whichever politician isn’t currently scoring political points with deficit spending is against it.

  17. chicagofinance says:

    That fact cannot possibly be true.

    I don’t mean the people who actually study corporate welfare. I mean the type of leftists who just mouth their tribal chants about corporations and “fat cats,” and imagine that Tesla is “saving the earth”.

    All the people on my facebook feed that lean heavily left and scream about gun control nonstop all wanted a flame thrower becaues Elon Musk made it.

    You’re either a fanboy of his or you aren’t.

    Grim, thank you for today’s only post about real estate. These household trends benefit apartments at the expense of detached houses. 2017 shaping up to be the first year in a long time with more multifamily units delivered than 1- and 2-family units in New Jersey.

    “, I’m getting recruiters by the score contacting me and this was void for a decade. ”

    I have had recuirters constantly on the phone for the past decade. They either want my CV to place in frost of their hungry clients who have great jobs just waiting to be filled, or do I have any openings for the multitude of top tier talent in every field that can fill my ever need.

    So Gary, what greatness are they offering? Full time hire, full bene package, bump in pay and a golden handshake?

  22. Fabius Maximus says:

    frost = front

    Is there anything Donnie didn’t put on the campaign dime? I said back in the day that he would get caught up in Campaign Finance trouble, but even I didn’t picture this!.


  26. Fabius Maximus says:

    And my favorite.


    Trump has denied knowing the man who had an office three doors down from his own and who helped his company explore deals across the globe. In a 2013 deposition, Trump said of Sater, “If he were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn’t know what he looked like.”

    Yo it fits in with what I have been saying regarding the suburbs and are they still attractive to this generation.

  30. Ex-Jersey says:

    There is something humorous about White House officials being worried that Cabinet members are embarrassing the administration through petty corruption scandals.

    They’re not wrong that Trump’s Cabinet has been embarrassing at times. But they should think about who’s ultimately to blame for that.

    The issue isn’t just that Trump picked all these substandard people to serve him. There’s also the problem of any organization whose leader doesn’t live up to its stated ideals.

  31. Ex-Jersey says:

    Given your four decades of experience as an intelligence analyst with the CIA, and your work with the State Department and other agencies, how do you view the Russia scandal and Donald Trump?
    His effort to hide the story, and his treatment of Putin and Russia, suggest that with all that smoke there’s some fire. I don’t know if it’s money laundering. I don’t know if it’s some vulnerabilities that he’s been compromised in Russia, but his treatment of Putin makes no sense. The Manafort indictment is damning. [Manafort’s] vulnerability to Russia and then the fact that he danced into the Trump campaign and becomes the campaign manager, and by the way is willing to work for nothing at a time when he is in financial crisis. And then there are [Jeff] Sessions and [Jared] Kushner, who have lied about foreign contacts. On top of that there are a hundred or so people in the White House who the FBI and the Justice Department can’t finally clear for security documents. In total ,this all points to a level of corruption like we’ve never seen before.
    The Republicans are hanging on to Trump for dear life. This is their golden opportunity — the House, the Senate and the White House — to do things they always wanted to do. I don’t know what it would take for Republicans to realize that Trump has damaged and will continue to undermine our democracy.

  32. Ex-Jersey says:

    During the campaign, Mr. Trump summed up his requirements: “It’s going to be a real wall, it’s going to be a high wall, it’s going to be a beautiful wall, it’s going to be a wall that works.” But the wall won’t be a “real wall” as much as a “border system” — part increased patrols, part monitoring devices, part lighting and part wall. The barriers Mr. Trump will visit on Tuesday would be built only in what are considered suitable areas, not along the entire 2,000-mile border.

    Whether Congress will free up the more than $20 billion that the department estimates the project will cost remains an open question.

    Looking at photos of the eight prototypes, Mr. Beckmann said he couldn’t imagine how Mr. Trump would choose. “We’ve reached new heights of absurdity,” he said. “Pun intended.”

  33. Ex-Jersey says:

    And I love how the resident imbecile “MAGAboi” as I will refer to him going forward tends to believe that we do not have the right to obstruct or to disagree with what this imbecile does. Sure. He’s getting things done and undone, but it is not a disorder to say “nope”. Hopefully what Trump accomplishes doesn’t kill the economy or the Country. My “Hope” is that Trump’s intuition is not as horrible as his record may suggest. I “pray” in my own secular way, that we come out of this once the imbeciles are done “getting us Great Again”….

    Half of new Democratic hopefuls are former CIA or other operatives
    The Democratic Party in the United States is looking to capture a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections. But as many as half of their new representatives will be former CIA and other intelligence operatives.
