I am not a Realtor from your area inNJ, but when I see a question like yours, then I always wonder why a Buyer anywhere is not working with an experienced local Realtor, a Buyers Agent, one who will work on behalf and in the very BEST interest of the Buyer, not only finding the properties, showing them, but also getting the Buyers pre-approved by a lender, so that they will buy within their limits and comfort zone( as you mentioned "affordable", but there are so many details to pay attention to like the various terms of the offer, negotiations with the Seller, earnest moneys, inspection, appraisal issues, walk thru, estimates for repairs,market analysis for a property so that it will be a competitive offer and sooooo much more.

Buyers Agents are usually if the property is listed on the multiple listing services i.e. listed by a real estate company/brokerage paid by the Seller's side at the closing out of the Seller's proceeds, i.e.
the Buyers Agents services are free to you the Buyer, but your commitment and loyalty to one Buyers Agent will be required....

Give this some thought, as the questions as you ask them above, your Buyers Agent will be able to get you, and more than that also what the assessments cover, as this is different for each condo.

Do not do this on your own..... For your protection.
When it comes to schools, each district and school has their report cards on the internet, a local Realtor will be able to guide you to the right site and then it comes to your kids, what is important to you in a school with regard to your children's needs. Always always visit the schools once you narrow in on a certain area for your new home.... And remember sometimes school districts
change, so nothing stays the same for ever.....

Manalapan and Englishtown share the same school system for the elementary grades and are part of the Freehold Regional high School district for high school. Manalapan's schools and Englishtown have a highly rated school system throughout and would be an excellent choice to raise a family as would the surrounding communities of Marlboro and Freehold township and Howell township. The further south you go, the less expensive are the homes. That being said, prices range in the Manalapan area from the 1000000 range up. Please feel free to call me and I will arrange to put you in touch with a mortgage professional to determine your price range and then provide you with informaiton as to what that price range looks like in Manalapan.
