Do You Live in a Super Zip?

Published on December 14th, 2013 by | Filed Under: Buying a Home in NJ, Commuting to NYC, Education in NJ

Do you live in a Super Zip Community as defined by The Washington Post ?

“The Washington Post analyzed census data to find Zip codes where people rank highest on a combination of income and education. They are Super Zips. The ranks, ranging from 0 to 99, represent the average of each Zip’s percentile rankings for median household income and for the share of adults with college degrees. Super Zips rank 95 or higher. This approach is adapted from one used by author Charles Murray.”

Our Midtown Direct Homes region is the seventh largest contiguous Super Zip cluster ranked by number of households. There are 27 Zip Codes within our region that qualify with rankings of 95% or higher sporting the highest income and education levels achieved.

To name a few:

99% Short Hills 07078
99% Chatham 07928
98% Livingston 07039
98% South Orange 07079
97% Millburn 07941
97% Summit 07901
97% Westfield 07090
97% New Providence 07974
96% Madison 07940
96% Berkeley Heights 07922
95% Maplewood 07040

What the article points out is the haves and have nots…and the societal implications.

With housing prices rising within Midtown Direct Communities, and all indications pointing to an early robust Spring real estate market, there is a very strong desire to live our Super Zip towns.

What do You think about these “bubble” communities and how are you giving back to those less fortunate?
