East Brunswick is a highly regarded town, but none of us have a crystal ball as to value in 10 years.

Just imagine if this question was asked in 2005-2007 when all those people purchased homes when the market was booming, and we said "yes, in 10 years the house will be worth much more".

Obviously that is not true in many situations right now, with some owners finding themselves underwater with their homes being worth LESS than what they owe now.

That being said, the current housing market is turning around into a sellers market, with more multiple offer situations occurring than I have seen in at least 5 years. Prices are slowly creeping up, and with mortgage rates still so low, I suggest you buy a home in the style YOU like, in an area YOU like. There's a reason there are so many styles of homes, there's a style to meet everyones' taste.

If you have concerns then the next buyer will have those same concerns. You can get special meters to measure whether or not you are receiving "rays" from the lines.

I love a house it has everything I want but it's 20 meter away from the high voltage pipeline. How safe is it to live in a house that close to the high voltage?

Hi Doreen,

I would look into all options. I would speak to a local realtor to see what your home is worth in the current condition and then look around a the area and see if there is another home you want to move into. Then do the math to see if it makes sense. The current market is a perfect time to trade up! These types of transactions are tricky, but it is totally possible to do.

I know the Frost area very well and I live in the area. I can stop by to discuss further in person if you like!

Call or email!

Sorry Dr. Cheng, but you are wrong about the commute. East Brunswick, by Bus.. 35 - 50 minutes.. a lot less crowded the then the overcrowded standing room only trains. The train , you would have to drive to New Brunswick, which is 2 stops from edison, so you have a better chance of getting a seat on the train.

If you drive a car and need to go someplace.. Piscataway and route 287 are not very good for commuters.. Very frustrating. Try parking your car at the Edison train station! Not good. I know people in Edison that drive to Metuchen and Metro park and New Brunswick to aviod the Edison train station....

Yes, South Brunswick would be the school system. Very good school system at that, better then East Brunswick?..You would have to do reearch on that... I am partial as I live in East Brunswick. I moved to East Brunswick for the schools as they were the best in the area at the time.,,, and still up there.

South Brunswick commuting is a little longer from NYC.. about 20 minutes ( south of East Brunswick). To East Brunswick by bus.,,, 1hour 15 minutes...
