It is not always
so easy to find an attractive single-family home to rent in the
suburbs. Most of the inventory available is for sale. Having said
that, there is always something to look at. Single-family
homes start at about $4000 a month and can go way up from there.
The challenge is to find one that is in reasonable condition at
a reasonable price.
homes for purchase start at about $300,000 and go way into the
millions depending on the quality of the community and the schools
and the convenience of the commute. Housing costs and real estate
taxes vary dramatically depending on whether you are looking in
Connecticut, New York or New Jersey, as do purchase and closing
procedures. It's very important to go into this process with a
good deal of homework behind you. Or call The Intrepid New Yorker.
