Trenton-turnkeySince Trenton is still a brand new market for Hipster to explore, we’re going back east today to check it out. It’s a pretty amazing score – Trenton comes with all the bells and whistles for savvy investors. Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran has her eyes on Trenton, pointing out that it’s half-way between Philly and New York: she believes this market is poised for real growth.

    Why are property taxes so high? Over $4000 a year for a $75.000 property seems very high.

      Hey Jon, yep, the taxes in NJ are the highest of all the markets. I can double-check the $4000/year amount with the seller for you for sure.

    Great find! I grew-up just outside of Trenton and my parents are still there. The city has many charming brownstones that are ripe for renovation and investment. Don’t forget that Princeton, NJ and New Hope, PA are a short drive from the city of Trenton.
