WHy do the homes along Ridge Rd in Rumson sell for lower prices than other areas in the town?

I am looking to buy a 4br home for my family.  We are not local to NJ, and I was curious why the homes along Ridge Rd sell for less.  We have children also.  Thank you!

Hope you found a home for your family in Rumson or Fair Haven. They're both great towns with terrific elementary/middle schools and Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, a National Blue Ribbon School.

In 2011, 4 single family homes were sold on Ridge Road. The lowest selling price was $950,000 and the highest $1,875,00,000. This compares to Rumson's median 2011 sale price of $1,100,000. I wouldn't say that homes on Ridge Road sell for less!

HI Steven,
It all depends on what one is looking for..........
There is actually quite a range of prices on Ridge Road any where from 499,900 to $2,650,000. The closer to the center of town the smaller the lot size, From 50x150 lot to 3.5 acres. The closer you are to town, the easier it is to walk to the schools, the river, restaurants and parks. Higher density = neighborhood. Other people prefer a little more space. Any way you slice it, big or small, Rumson has it all, good schools, beaches,high speed ferry to Wall Street, it's a great place to raise a family............ I know, because it's where my husband and I chose to raise our five children!

Ridge Rd is situated parallel between River Rd and Rumson Rd.  The pros is you are further from the hustle of stores, great restaurants and the main activities of the area.  The cons is you are further from stores, great restaurants and the main activities of the area. 

As you get closer to the schools, stores and restaurants, the more popular.  It's a great place.  Lots of cute shops, great restaurants, scenery of the Navasink River, (where they also do spectacular fireworks at 4th of July.

Let me know if you need any more help.
