Living in Jersey also comes with a hefty price tag.

Granted, things are a lot more expensive all over the country right now but I feel like Jersey is pretty pricey.

Plus, the taxes are kind of insane.

Especially if you plan on buying a house.

Granted, there's nowhere else I'd rather call home than the Garden State, it really is a great place to live, play and work.

That being said, if you move here and are trying to start the house-buying search, you may want to avoid a few zip codes that are among the most expensive in the country.

Before I completely discourage you from your home-buying experience, be sure to check out the most affordable places in Jersey to live.

There are surprisingly quite a few places worth checking out.

Right now, the average home value in Jersey is just under five hundred thousand dollars, which is up quite a bit from the past few years according to Patch.

As of 2023, these towns come with the largest price for a home in the Garden State:

  •  Deal (ZIP 07723): $3,252,968
  •  Alpine (ZIP 07620): $2,732,814
  • Avalon (ZIP 08202): $2,407,447
  • Stone Harbor (ZIP 08247): $2,264,361
  • Mantoloking (ZIP 08738): $1,958,518
  • Short Hills (ZIP 07078): $1,903,920
  • Allenhurst (ZIP 07711): $1,872,062.
  • Sea Girt (ZIP 08750): $1,843,400.83 ~Patch

Granted, all of these places are right by the Ocean, or a suburb of New York City, so the prices are going to be much wilder than say Forked River, Manahawkin, or Jackson.
