"Who needs a house out in Hackensack?" - (Billy Joel, "Movin Out")

Historic Hackensack dates back to the Native American Indian tribes of this region. This strategically located city was used as a headquarters for General George Washington during part of the American Revolution. Talk about historic! However, the views of the New York City skyline from Hackensack are much different today than they were in ol' George’s time. The city truly displays the diversity that is urban America. Within its boundaries are stately historic townhouses, a river, high rise buildings, industrial complexes and a picturesque nature preserve. Considered a suburb of New York City, many who live here commute for work. This northeastern community of approximately 43,000 also serves as the Bergen County seat.

Moving to Hackensack

The city prides itself on its diverse use of the land and a wide range of residents. Real estate here is more reasonably priced than in some other areas of the state. However, it is typical of this densely populated region of the country and runs higher than the national average. Hackensack residents are employed in a mixture of service related industries, technology companies and professional jobs. So don't be surprised by a higher price tag.

Whether your vision of a home for rent in Hackensack is a quaint apartment in a historic row house or a chic modern space in a high rise building, you are in luck. While there is a large quantity of rental inventory in the city, it is always wise to prepare well ahead of a move. Ensure your best chance of getting the okay from a potential landlord by having all necessary paperwork in hand. This includes proof of income, a recent credit report and references from former landlords. The city sponsors an advisory board that seeks ways to improve the quality of life for those who rent their homes so you'll be well taken care of.

Many residents utilize public transportation to get around town. There is a commuter train service that runs through Hackensack, and bus service provided by the city. Those needing to get to the regional airports including LaGuardia, Newark and Kennedy International can use the airport limo service. So if you don't fee like sitting through traffic, hop on a bus or train!
