You have posed a very detailed and involved situation regarding your desire to purchase in Monroe township.
As an agent with New Jersey Realty, we are the only realty firm that has two boutique offices located in Monroe township. That being said, I am very familiar with the ins and out of the township. However, no agent will be able to project where the school system will be placed in the future in comparision to other areas. I can provide you with current detailed information about the schools.
As far as development projects, the township works very hard to preserve the aesthetics of the area. That reason is what attributes to the lack of commercialism in the area. It also helps to the keep the traffic levels at a minimum.
I would love to talk to you personally about Monroe township to see whether the town is a good fit for you.
