Hi Tom, there are plenty of homes in the Millburn, Summit, New Providence and Berkeley Heights area in all price ranges. The home values may be a little higher here because they're worth it. A large reason is the excellent school systems. For example, the New Providence High School also scored big on NJ Monthly's annual Top High Schools survey, jumping to #5 in the state this year! We represent homes along the midtown direct commuter lines because many people are looking for smarter, environmentally friendly lifestyles. In addition to being great walkable towns, with beautiful parks, fields and trails, the many public transportation options here afford people the enjoyment of access to work, shops, culture and recreation without having to drive. We personally love being able to walk to town, hop on the train, have dinner three towns over with our friends. The train also increases our productivity, allowing us to complete additional work on the go. Why tolerate highway traffic when you don't have to?... more
If you move a little south on 27 you can pick up the train at Princeton Junction and your girlfirend could take 518 to 206 - this opens South Brunswick, Parts of Frankin which everyone thinks is Princeton, and Princeton. There's plenty available in your price range, and if you're a first time homebuyer you may qualify for some money back!
