If you’re looking to move to another town in New Jersey or if you’re moving here for the first time, there are a few towns that you should take into consideration first while house hunting.

The first question that I’m sure comes to mind is “How safe is the town”? I would say it’s just about every parent’s dream to raise their children in a community where they can send them outside to play with their friends and not have to second-guess their choice in letting them go.


There are a lot of things to consider when moving into a new home, but I’d say safety had to be on the top of most people’s lists. Property Club has generated a list of the top 10 most safe towns to live in all of New Jersey and these are the perfect towns to add to your Zillow list if you’re looking for one either now or in the future.

New Jersey in my opinion has to be one of the best spots to live in the entire country! You have access to 2 major cities all within an hour or so, access to beaches and also the Poconos if you’re feeling a mountain type of getaway. Whatever your needs or wants are, New Jersey for sure has you covered.
