We as Realtors, cannot answer the question for you legally. But it is also so subjective. It's like asking which is better Coke or Pepsi, or McDonald or Wendys. Matter of personal preference.
Make a pro and con list for yourself of both complexes, the houses in question, and the areas, and see which fits your lifestyle better.

This is not a question a real estate agent can legally answer. The best thing to do is investigate the schools and check crime stats with the local police depts. of the two communities. Also, check out the things that are important to you and compare the two communities. For example, what do you do for recreation? Which community has more of it? Do you have a preferred type of house? Which community has more of them? Research both towns online and see what people are saying about them. Pick up local newspapers from both communities and see what you think of what you are reading.

Hello Balaji,
Besides the fact that any answer to your question would be highly subjective, the Fair Housing prevents me providing one that might be considered "Steering" Steering is discouraging a person from seeking housing in a particular community, neighborhood, or development. (See web reference) What may be considered better for one could be worse for another.

As a potential homebuyer, you must perform due diligence in determining which community is better/best for you. You might visit local supermarkets and talk with local residents of each community. Drive or walk the community and talk with locals. You will find local information at: http://www.franklintwpnj.org You can research U.S Census data at: http://www.census.gov. Another source of information is http://www.co.somerset.nj.us

I also provide local insights and information about Somerset, NJ at http://mjadamssellshomes.com as well as buyer resources (including school reports) on my website: http://mjadams.yourkwagent.com/atj/user/BuyerResourceGetAction.do

I'm not sure I have provided the response that you were looking for. If, however, you are home shopping on your own, feel free to contact me for more information or to tour any home that you might find and are qualified to purchase.

Best of luck to you.
