I was recently searching on Realtor.com and found this cute little 8.7 Million dollar house right off of RT 36, nestled in the hills.
Which got me thinking, how the heck can the median house prices in Highlands be so low when we have almost 9 million homes??
After further checking, I realized that this house, although has a 07732 zip code and is literally a stone’s throw from RT 36 is considered MIDDLETOWN. – Ahhh, what are we not good enough for you?
Think about this, according to the Real Estate site, the tax rate on this ONE house is $36,000+ A YEAR. ONE HOUSE = $36,000
One has to wonder WHY except for shear prejudice would the few streets North of RT 36 are considered Middletown. I mean really, if I was the mayor of Highlands I would find some way to procure that area and keep those rateables to ourselves.
