The suburbs you may look to research could be determined by whether you are looking to make an investment purchase or an owner occupied purchase. If you are looking for an investment opportunity you might find you will be able to lock in an offer on a property in the Elizabeth area where the median rental is $270 per week. The property you purchase may need just a little tender loving care and a paint job to spruce up the place making it enticing for a young family and easier to rent.

You may decide you want to purchase a place for yourself to live in close to where you grew up in the Salisbury area for this matter and find something for well under $250,000 but once again it is likely that the place will need a little tender loving care to update the appearance such as removing the late 80’s early 90’s wallpaper then adding a coat of fresh paint and maybe update the kitchen and air conditioning system to make it feel more modern.
