May 8, 2019 : Gloucester City – Where Great Things are Happening!

According to new research, Gloucester City is recognized as the most affordable suburb closest to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The website states that there are actually affordable suburbs with low crime rates and reasonable commutes in the Garden State “that you’d like to live in.”

The article “Bargains in the Burbs: The 11 Most Affordable Options Outside the Big Cities,” by Lance Lambert on May 6, 2019, identified Hillside in Union County and Gloucester City in Camden County as two of the most affordable suburbs in the country that are located outside of major U.S. cities.

“You don’t have to go far from downtown Philadelphia to find a burb with some really cheap homes,” the website says. “Right across the Delaware River (the boundary between Pennsylvania and New Jersey) is Gloucester City, with its historic working-class communities and fantastic views of the Philly skyline. Many of the century-old homes here are two or three stories and can be found for under $100,000.”…

To determine the most affordable suburbs outside of major cities “that you’d like to live in,” looked at ZIP codes within the 11 largest metropolitan areas and then filtered out homes with a high crime rate and a commute into city centers that is more than an hour. From there, they ranked the remaining ZIP codes by median home list prices between April 2018 and March 2019.
