Are you looking to rent? Or maybe buy?

Well how are you supposed to  know which is more affordable or which option is the better option for your situation?

THIS is how you know....

Head to NJ.com for an estimate of home median values, median rent values, as well as other data that may help you to make your decision.

All you have to do is type in whichever town you are considering and all the data will be put right in front of you.

For example, I searched Mays Landing in Atlantic County and the median home value is $145,000 and the median rent cost is $1,440.

Now keep in mind, a median is not necessarily an average and it could be a bit higher than rent values you may actually find depending on the more luxurious options around. But it is all about research!

But the article at NJ.com has also put other tools to help you determine where you can afford.

So click here and happy house or apartment hunting!
