I have noticed an increase in people wanting to get out of NJ. I can’t imagine if that is because of the lovely job that our Governor is doing, or if the people think that the economy is better elsewhere. The house I am in was worth far more 2 years ago than it is now. Pretty ugly market we have going.
A few years ago everyone was looking into the Carolinas housing market. Wilmington NC real estate, Charlotte SC, and other areas in the Carolinas. I don’t blame people for wanting to move, but from everything that I have read about the economy… It is hurting everyone… everywhere.
I was looking at offers in the Florida area, and I could go there and get a house for 1/2 of what I own my house here for. The most ironic thing about that is that the houses were 2 times the size of my current housing. There are no jobs that are worth it in Florida for me, so we totally trashed the idea.
I would leave NJ in a heartbeat if I could get a job paying what I earn currently. NJ has gotten so expensive to live in.
Would the last person out turn off the lights?
How is the economy hurting you, your family, and your housing? Would you move if you could?
