Point Pleasant Makes Best Places For Homeownership List

"Homeownership in New Jersey can be expensive but our analysis found affordable places across the state, including areas close to Philadelphia and New York City," said Maggie Clark, an analyst with NerdWallet.

As part of its state-by-state series, consumer advocacy site NerdWallet has analyzed the federal data and found the best places for homeownership in New Jersey - and Point Pleasant made the list.

"Homeownership in New Jersey can be expensive but our analysis found affordable places across the state, including areas close to Philadelphia and New York City," said Maggie Clark, an analyst with NerdWallet. "Moderate home values and high homeownership rates make these cities a good bet for homebuyers."

The data used in this study comes from the U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-year Estimates. The specific sections used to derive each factor can be found in the "Methodology" section at the bottom of the study, along with more details about how each factor was weighted.

And I know, it's the Patch, but wouldn't it be nice if in an article talking about Point Pleasant, they put a picture of Point Pleasant and not Point Pleasant Beach.

I guess they didn't check our property taxes!

All these studies is a bunch bull. I don't believe any of them. They can make anything look good or bad and way overrated. What does the U.S. Census American Community Survey know about Pt. Pleasant? They have to be getting their information from someone to derive each factor.

Pt. Pleasant at 19 and Rahway at 29?
