In fact there is a difference in cost between the towns with similar size units selling slightly higher in Bridgewater. Bridgewater is generally considered a more popular place to live than Branchburg for several reasons including: easier access to Routes 78 and 287, its own school system(Branchburg sends its children to Somerville High school) and a better top end of the market( there are more high priced homes(above 700K) then Branchburg. All that being said, if you are looking at a purchase from an investment viewpoint, either town offers promising returns if you make a wise purchase.

They are very close, but you have to compare taxes ( close ) , maintenance fees ( close ) and the individual townhouse itself, how long is it on the market, what is the seller's motivation? The ages may vary, slighlty too. While there are more townhouses and variteies to pick from in Bridgewater, at the moment I see a $10,000 difference ( Branchburg being less) if trying to compare apples to apples. But how does that effect your commute, time and gas wise. If you are open to both look at both. Are looking for a diamond in the rough or willing to spend more for recent upgrades? Some issues and quesitons to ask yourself, but both towns are worth looking and comparing.

Hi Ellen,

The townhome inventory on Trulia is more robust in Bridgewater (see the link below in the Web Reference field) but prices seem to be similar in these areas.

Here's a link to the townhomes for sale on Trulia in Branchburg so you can compare:,NJ/…
