9 Most Expensive Houses in New Jersey

| |

New Jersey, a state in the Northeastern regions, might seem small on the map, but it has some of the most expensive houses on the United States market. Close to the New York City and Manhattan borough, New Jersey is a quieter part of the bustling Big Apple – ideal for a summer or retirement house. 

After being inhabited by Native Americans, Dutch and Swedish colonies founded the first European settlements in the 17th century. With their culture, many architectural themes were implemented as well, as their traces could be seen today through some of the older housing systems. 

Besides this, New Jersey has been named countless times as one of the best places to live in, as it is one of the safest and healthiest states in the nation. Maybe some might consider it for a fresh start, a retirement plan, or living with children, as it has exceptional school districts. 

“Little” New York with an affordable cost of living is a dream come true!
