My husband & I are from North Jersey and are looking for a home. We have two small children and want a safe place to live but do not want to be on top of our neighbors. We are just starting out and can't afford the current real estate market. Browns Mills seems to have affordable homes but I know nothing about it.There are so many areas(Presidential Lakes, Country Lake Estates, etc.).Does the area flood often? Looking for a town that is kid friendly, has good schools and a pretty area.(We love the outdoors). Thank you for any information you can give me!

Hi Michelle,
I just wanted to let you know that I have lived in Presidential Lakes since I was 10 years old. I am now 25, married, with 2 small children also. My husband and I decided to buy a house here so we could remain close to our family. I would just like to let you know that Presidential Lakes and Country Lakes are the two best areas in Browns Mills. Preferably Presidential Lakes because we are away from the rest. Just thought I would let you know. The area is quiet, kid friendly, and the yards are decently sized. I definitely think it is a good area to raise children. I was raised here and my kids will be raised here as well. Oh, and our area does not flood often.... Hope I was a help to you.

Hello Everyone, Hi Diane I bet you used to live close to the Entrance Of PL and you went to Ossi Vo-Tech, have you been there(PL)lately, we now have a traffic light in the front instead of the flashing light.I was looking for a home at one time and bought a decent one on New Jersey Road paid $60,000 and sold it for $185,000 when I moved out after only living and improving the home for 3 years. I did quite well with my first place there.
I also see the new homes they are building in the back of the development are starting in the low $300,000. They have sidewalks and drainage systems some have 2 car garages. Very nice Homes back there made by Hovnanian, well the rest of the homes are going for about Mid $175,000. Diane Your Old House is up for sale again it is going for about $178,000.
I hope your the Diane that I once knew, hope your doing well.

denise, Mullica Hill is a very old historic town, a little pricey but very nice. Resales are probably due to all the people who bought homes they couldn't afford and they really built up that area quick.
I went to OSSI! 1983 to 87...parents are still in Browns Mills, I try to visit them every couple of weeks.

I lived as a summer resident of Browns Mills for many years and always loved this little lake town. Unfortunately, the beautiful lake area known as Catalano's is no longer open to the public. (The lake is there, Catalano's is not.) I remember swimming, rowing a boat, paddling a canoe, dancing under the stars. Just a lot of wonderful memories that I would love to share with anyone who once danced in the pavilion. My sister lives in the Country Lakes section and it is a very diverse area of the town. I live in West Deptford, NJ now but still love visiting Browns Mills.

Michelle - Hi - We have lived in Presidential Lakes for 5 years now. It is in a great location with the shore being only about 45 minutes away and shopping being about 30 minutes away. Presidential Lakes is located on Route 70, a major road to the shore, but far enough away so you are not tied up in any traffic. I think its a wonderful place to raise kids. In fact, we just bought our second home here in the development. Our 1st home is up for sale if you are interested. E mail me at verifyvary@aol.com

We are currently house hunting in the Mullica Hill area. We started out looking in the Shamong/ Medford area, but in the end settled on Mullica Hill. It's closer to Philly and easier access to major highways. Plus there are a lot of farms around, it's very nice. I don't know much about Browns Mills, but our real estate agent said the schools there are not as good as the ones a bit further south.

My wife and I have purchased a home in Presidential Lakes. I wonder if anyone can give me an idea of how they like living there. Also, where do you do your food shopping, and finally are there plans for development of more shopping closer to Presidential Lakes? Like a Home Depot and/or an Acme?

Presidential lakes was always nice, had lots of friends there growing up.

As far as shopping you will have to travel up the road a bit, the whole area is just about surrounded by state forest and or wetlands so I'm pretty sure further development won't happen. While a pain to do the regular shopping look at the bright side of it and enjoy the peace and quiet...more development= more traffic, people etc...

presidential lakes is very secluded and basically in the woods. you're better off in browns mills or even country lakes.

I didnt know so many people had such nice things to say about browns mills. yes, its a nice, quiet area...especially for raising kids. but before i left, a lot of things were going on. things you see going on in big cities, on the news...happen in browns mills too. ive seen a lot of friends get in trouble and even killed.
all in all, browns mills is a nice area. as long as you or your kids stay away from the wrong people.

I have only lived in Browns Mills for about 2 years now. In an area called Country Lakes. I like the area because it's outside of town, but far away from the crowds and hustle of everything NJ. There's only one issue I have and that's the shopping scene. I'm not talking about Best Buy or Walmart...I'm talking about food shopping. The Acme that's in town is the worst one I've been to ever. It rarely has anything I need and always runs out of what's on sale. The selection is also horrible. Certainly though, food shopping dislikes won't stop me from living here though. I purchased my home which was about 4 years old for $145,000 and now it's worth about $190,000 only 2 years later. A lot of people will tell you it's all white trash here and a lot of low class people...and yea, there is but I'm not an idiot that's going to pay $6000 in taxes on some home worth $500,000 either. I'd rather have some money in my pocket.
