Ridgewood, New Jersey, a village in Bergen County, is a popular suburb to which families move because of its proximity to New York City, highly rated public schools, and a walkable downtown.
It appeals to New Yorkers who don’t always want to rely on a car to get around, says Megan Fox, broker at Compass in Bergen County. Downtown, you can find popular stores like Gardiner & Co. and Town & Country Apothecary as well as restaurants like The Daily Treat and Steel Wheel Tavern. You’ll also find Veterans Park, Van Neste Memorial Square, and Ridgewood NJ Transit stops here.
The city is made up of several neighborhoods as it has diverse architectural styles such as Tudors, Colonials, and split levels, says Fox. Most of the homes here are old and renovated, she says, and there aren’t many new developments. There are also many residential complexes in the city center.
When it comes to buying a home here now, the median sale price is $875,000, down slightly from last year, according to Redfin. The sales market slows a bit as the cost of borrowing goes up and listings spend more days on the market, so they’ll face less competition.
