We live in Essex Co [Nutley to be exact] Our taxes are a WOPPING 12K a YEAR for a 2 bedroom tiny home.
We want to move to Rockaway [morris county] where a house for 200-350k with 4 bedrooms and more land property taxes are only check this...5-8k a year!!!!
Our house has no mortgage, paid off. built in 1920. We just want OUT. Nutley's crime is rising since Newark cut police, all the crime is spreading this way from Newark, Passaic and surround urban areas.
We stuck it out because i am 7 months pregnant with a little girl and our son has autism and Nutley does have a great special needs program in the public schools.That I can say honestly. He receives FREE speech, physical and occupational therapies via the school district.
But I was doing my research on Rockaway and I have fallen inlove with that town.
Anyone in Rockaway or Morris CO that can tell me pros and cons?
