Yardville was just named the most affordable neighborhood to live in New Jersey according to SmartAsset.com.

Smart Asset came up with a system in determining which town was the most affordable to buy a home in. They looked at the closing costs, real estate taxes, homeowners insurance and mortgage rates along with the median household income in each county and city to determine affordability over five years.

The top neighborhoods that also made this list were:

1. Yardville

2. Browns Mills

3. Crestwood Village

4. Twin Rivers

5. Ramtown

My hometown of Hamilton Square made the top ten as it comes in at number 7. So it's pretty impressive that Mercer County was represented on this list three times.
