About Oakland, NJ Real Estate Market

Created under an act of the New Jersey Legislature in 1902 from the portions of Franklin Township, Oakland is a suburb of New York City and a small borough in Bergen County of New Jersey state. With a total area of 8.77 square miles, Oakland has around 13,000 people living within it. The borough shares its boundaries with other boroughs like Mahwah and Franklin Lakes from Bergen County and Pompton Lakes, Wayne, Wanaque and Ringwood from Passaic County.

Since there are a lot of white oak trees in the territory of the borough, it got its name Oakland (the land of oak trees). There is a section in the borough of Oakland, in which the streets are named after the Native American first names and tribes.

The start of New Jersey real estate in Oakland began with the construction of Van Allen House in 1748, which served as a stop for George Washington and his troops in 1977. Another summer bungalow colony was developed in a valley on the Ramapo River between the 1940s and 1960s, which is currently serving as second homes for families from New York and urban New Jersey to escape from the brunt of summer heat.
