You may want to extend your view to include Somerset County's Bridgewater and Basking Ridge - both have great access to 287 and well regarded schools. Both have a wide variety of housing choices across the pricing spectrum.

Here are links to home searches for these two towns:

http://www.Homes08807.com (Bridgewater)

Happy to help you explore Somerset County.

All of the above places that you are considering have excellent schools. The price ranges vary from town to town. I would need to know hat type of housing you are interested in to be of further assistance.

For some great towns in close proximity to New Brunswick, I would suggest Metuchen, Edison, and East Brunswick. Are you working in the New Brunswick area or just looking there? Some of the towns on your list would be somewhat of a commute to New Brunswick.

There are several great districts in the area to choose from. We actually just did a series of interviews with members of the education community in North Brunswick, which I think you'll find informative. If you'd like some more information on the area, feel free to email me at cooper@zastko.com or call me on my cell - 609-865-5877.

New Brunswick, NJ itself does not have the best school systems.

You may want to consider East Brunswick, Edison, Piscataway, Somerset, as these towns are in very close proximity to New Brunswick as well.

Freehold (Monmouth County), Cranbury, Monroe, Princeton (Mercer County), West /East Windsor (Mercer County) and Hillsborough (Somerset County) are farther away.

Keep in mind that housing prices are substantially more expensive in the Central New Jersey area then the majority of North Carolina. Depending on what your needs and price range are will help you better identify the best community for you, as these communities vary in price and taxes.

If you have any questions or would like to get an idea of what is out there, feel free to email me at d.r.schnure@gmail.com with the criteria that you are looking for in a house.
