How are you guys affording high property taxes?

New Jersey Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
I've been looking for a house for almost 6 months now in Central/North Jersey. Most places I look, the property taxes are ridiculous. Unless I move to South Jersey or to the west closer to PA, I can't afford the average $8,000 a year in taxes. The average median income in NJ is $80,000 which is in my income range but a mortgage on top of the property taxes will mean half of my net income will be towards housing.

Any advice? Or just continue renting? I've lived here almost all my life and love NJ but I feel like it has been getting more expensive over the past few years.
