Real Estate Update-  A Look At Northfield, NJ 08225
By Gary Simmens of Keller Williams Atlantic Shore

The City of Northfield is a suburban community located in Atlantic County, New Jersey. Known as "The Gateway to the Shore". The city comprises an area of 3.5 square miles lying approximately seven miles to the west of Atlantic City and is bounded by the municipalities of Pleasantville, Linwood, and Egg Harbor Township, and connects to area of the Margate Bridge causeway. It has a population of over 8,500 and boasts the 271 acre beautiful scenic and recreational Birch Grove park.
As of the 2019 season, Birch Grove Park will no longer operate as a campground. After many years of exploring what options may be available to keep the campground open, it was decided by Northfield City Council to allow the campground portion of the park to revert to its natural state. While many people enjoyed the rustic camping experience at the Park, the operation is no longer sustainable without the cost of the significant improvements that would be necessary for camping to continue. 

Students in public school for kindergarten through eighth grade are served by the Northfield Community Schools Schools in the district are Northfield Community Elementary School which served approximately 487 students in grades K-4 and Northfield Community Middle School which served approximately 440 students in grades 5-8. Students in ninth through twelfth grades attend Mainland Regional High School, which serves students from Linwood, Northfield and Somers Point. The high school is located in Linwood. For the 1997-98 school year, Mainland Regional High School was recognized by the United States Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School.
The highest SOLD commercial NF property to settle this year so far was this past March 2019, the former TD bank building near McDonalds on New road  which sold for $1,250,000.  Most expensive home to sell in the last year to date was a 4 BR 2.5 bath with finished basement in the Sutton Woods area for $420,000.00. Year 2017 compared to 2018 showed an increase of 4.7% in sales, along with the median sales price adjusting down slightly 3.2% Homes sold tighter to list price with a 2.8% improvement. The adult community sales are limited but showed a 19.5% rise in median sales price. 
Sales have picked up this year with the low mortgage interest rates, Northfield with its easy access to shore towns and the NJ Parkway and AC Expressway is a popular place for many to choose for home. The commercial ratables on Tilton and New Roads have helped keep the tax base in check, along with the home town feel of local and convenient shopping.
