Toms River Makes Best Places For Homeownership List

"Homeownership in New Jersey can be expensive but our analysis found affordable places across the state, including areas close to Philadelphia and New York City," said Maggie Clark, an analyst with NerdWallet.

As part of its state-by-state series, consumer advocacy site NerdWallet has analyzed the federal data and found the best places for homeownership in New Jersey - and Toms River made the list.

"Homeownership in New Jersey can be expensive but our analysis found affordable places across the state, including areas close to Philadelphia and New York City," said Maggie Clark, an analyst with NerdWallet. "Moderate home values and high homeownership rates make these cities a good bet for homebuyers."

The data used in this study comes from the U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-year Estimates. The specific sections used to derive each factor can be found in the "Methodology" section at the bottom of the study, along with more details about how each factor was weighted.

Yes, the list on the NerdWallet website (click on the blue link in the story) doesn't include Toms River. The analysts gave some questionable weighting to various factors. Mortgage and utility costs comprise only 1/6 of the ranking scheme.
