It is accurate. Town Center living is in more demand and therefore is increasing at a faster pace.

Good morning, Robbinsville like most areas always seem to have small pockets that that do better than others. Basically, the overall area has proven itself to be and remain very active despite the media reports on housing. the area has alot to offer between, new schools, highways, newer construction, and lifestyle amenities. As for well and septic it can be the double edged sword if not in the right condition and location for the property it self. let me know if this helps and if you need anymore guidance in the areas of choice.

Hi Sb,
The homes closer to East Windsor are in a different price range, firstly.

These are larger single family homes in smaller custom develpments......depending on the community these range from 2800- 4000+ sq ft & in the $600-$900K range.

The home in town center are either the residential lofts, townhomes or much smaller single family ( close to each other) - the commercial development on Rt 33 & the way this entire Sharbell community was planned is a more urban lifestyle - stores & shopping within walking distance etc.

Affordability is also key. The first time homes buyers price range falls more into the Town Center range & thus you see this effect.
The turnover is also higher here as lifestyles change or people outgrow their current living spece.
The other ( bigger) homes in Robbinsville are also selling & this market remains active.

And to address your question regarding resale, it ultimately depends on the community you want to buy in. It is not that a buyer will shy away from buying a home with well & septic ---if that is the characteristic of the town/area/community then the reason is that there is fewer tract housing & the town intends to keep the population /building density low.
This can be seen as a positive by those buyers who are trying to get away from the congested built...sometimes over developed areas.
We moved from franklin for this reason to start with - the development all along Rt 27 was a major factor in our decision.
