New Jersey Relocation Resources
If you're relocating from large areas like Hoboken or New York City — or even from across the world — you will find that life is very different in New Jersey's historic smaller towns like Westfield.
Not only are you further away from metro areas, the town itself is much quieter. You'll find old-fashioned main streets with squat brick buildings here rather than towering steel skyscrapers and bustling city streets. Here are a few other things to expect when moving to smaller towns in New Jersey from larger areas.
- Affordable housing — Average home values in Westfield are much lower than in New York City and other large metro areas, so moving to a small town in New Jersey is a financially wise decision.
- Open space — Small towns in New Jersey offer a break from cluttered city skylines and provide large parks and natural areas with trails.
- Local experiences — You can get to know the residents living in the Westfield area since these towns are much smaller than bustling cities. Try local restaurants, breweries, and community events to your heart's content.
- Ideal location — Close enough to large cities but far enough away to enjoy a moment's peace and quiet, Westfield is the perfect place to raise a family, retire, and stay connected with your friends and neighbors.
It's much cheaper to live in Westfield than in large metropolitan areas. You can find all kinds of homes for sale in small New Jersey towns, ranging from new construction and custom homes in Westfield to cozy houses — all at affordable prices.
Here are the average home values for the Westfield area compared with average home values in the Manhattan borough of New York City.
