A bit of a different prospective - good luck and happy to help in anyway. My office is in Westfield but I can help up to 45 minutes in all directions.
Best to you,

There are many nice houses in Crandford in your price range. However, be careful choosing one, since many are in the flood zone that would require additional flood insurance.
I would highly recommend New Providence, it has one of the best schools NJ!
Best of luck,
If you want something new(er) you may find some options if you travel west to Somerset County's Bridgewater and Branchburg.
Happy to assist in any way. For a summary of the distribution of recent Bridgewater home sales, check out my blog post, just published today:
