The Bergen County borough may not have a walkable downtown, but residents say the low property taxes and plentiful shopping malls make up for that.

For decades, shoppers from miles around have flocked to the mega malls and countless strip centers of Paramus, N.J., making the Bergen County borough a regional retail hub. But for the 26,000 residents who already live there, the best part about all those businesses is that they carry a lot of the property tax burden, giving homeowners a break.

“One of the main draws for Paramus buyers are the low taxes,” said Lisa Sammataro, a Keller Williams real estate agent in Ridgewood.
