I live in Fords in the section that butts up to woodbridge, across from the Club. I built my
home, raised my children and loved it. I love the conveniences to trains, parkway, 287 and
turnpike. I have a custom built home, 4 bedrooms, liv room, dining room, huge kitchen, family room
finished basement 2 1/2 baths. This side of Fords is very nice. Im going to be selling my home within
the next month or so if you are interested let me know.

Hi Olivia,
I live in Edison a few streets down from Fords. You can find some well priced property in Fords. You may want to run some community reports to provide you with community and schools facts. Find below the link to one of my site that offers those reports:
There might be some different options. I specialize in Metuchen/Edison/Piscataway/Fords, feel free to contact me if you need help to narrow your search and start looking at properties.
