Good luck! and let me know if you would like to see my house, you can call me at 732-688-9349.
If you find better price gas, please do not hesitate to share so that we can all bash down the gas price. Remember the rule I posted earlier that 2br 2ba condo at Edison worth 100,000 gallon of gas when it was around $2.75, i.e. $275,000, so if gas goes up to $3.69 that would implies that price will go up to $369,000 although it may not be synchronized in real time.
We Asians in Greater Edison Area tends to want to start up with a condo or townhouse is because many of us working at Wall St and have long hours and do not have much time to do yard work. Besides, during weekends, we need to take kids to visit museums and science center so that our kids can get into better university later. http://berkeleyhousing.blogspot.com/ So, hopefully that and answer your puzzle, so are many other Americans.
On the other hand, I do know multi generation Americans who grew up in the US and have learned how to deal with their lawn and do housing repair ...etc, they prefer to have single family houses, which is great! That's why Fobes magazine name Piscataway area the most affordable transit area in Greater New York City.
Anyways, if you have any questions
Maple Grove is very close to Dunellen Train Station http://dunellentrain.blogspot.com/ as you can see http://www.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&saddr=1000+South+St and it is not far from Metropark Train Station either http://www.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&sa
When you go to NYC, you take Dunellen Train Station and when you need to go Boston or DC, you can take Metropark Train Station http://metroparktrain.blogspot.com/
