All I can tell you is that my husband and I grew up in Middlesex (and I didn't turn out that bad!!) We got married, moved over a few towns and then moved right back here again. Most of the people that you come across in this sleepy borough grew up here and decided to stay to raise their own families. I think that says a lot about a town right there. So, welcome to the neighborhood !

Take look at my property at 139 South Lincoln, it is an affordable home in Middlesex Borough with a large yard.

Hi Bhacker, Middlesex County contains many nice communities - among them Middlesex itself. I can help you explore this area as well as neighboring Piscataway - reach out to me with more details on your criteria and I will send you details on what is available in the area.

In terms of whether value will increase, my suggestion is that you not count on prices rising anytime soon. I think that it is a fantastic time to buy - the rates are amazing - and prices have come way down. There are many people who remain on the sidelines trying to time this perfectly, but I think at this point, that is silly. Might the prices fall furhter - maybe a little, might interest rates fluctuate - most likely. In the end, it becomes a zero sum game as rates rise your buying power declines.

My recommendation is to find yourself a home you will enjoy for 5 or more years. Work with an agent you are comfortable with to help you get the best possible price.

You can find me online at http://www.feenick.com You'll see a great home featured there - 14 Lillian Terrace in Piscataway - it is also listed here on Trulia. Take a look.

Best,
Jeannie Feenick

Bhacker,
Nice small town with good access to highways not too far from NY trains and a good school system.
Safety concerns? Here's a link for crime stats throughout the state so you can compare different towns you may be interested in. http://www.njsp.org/info/stats.html
Historically Middlesex has gone with the market trends in the region. So as far as growth, it will do well when the market picks up.
Let me know if you need any further information and good luck in your search.
Blessings

Well, since I'm a realtor and I grew up in Middlesex, left for college and work and came back to town, I might be biased, but I think it is a really nice town to live. My brother ran a very successful business in town and my best friend sits on the School Board. Middlesex has a lot to offer.
