As you would expect in such a small town, this is considered to be an excellent place to raise a family. As is common in small suburbs, the public schools have earned a very impressive rating of A+, which is why most parents are drawn to raise their children here. There are also plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, no matter what the season, so it is no challenge to live an active outdoor lifestyle. Furthermore, parents love that Moorestown has a B+ crime and safety rating which gives them great peace of mind.
Thanks to the plentiful jobs in and around Moorestown, as well as, the easy commute to Philly, the economy is quite strong. A vast array of industries in the area provide plenty of opportunities to make money doing what you love most. It is no wonder that nearly all adults that are permanent residents here have chosen to buy their homes instead of renting. The median home value is above average at roughly half a million dollars, but that is no problem for people living in Moorestown that report a median household income of more than $125,000 per year. These numbers have earned this small Philly suburb a ranking of one of the top New Jersey suburbs to buy a house.
