I have access to two Multiple Listing Services (MLS). I live in South Brunswick Township for 3 years, but my real estate business has always been in the Union and Essex County market.
I briefly searched for single family homes on the Middlesex MLS and I saw 12 hours in the price range you specified. If looked the Garden State MLS, which will advertise homes for sell in Somerset County, I would more than likely find more properties in your price point.
I know that Kendall Park and Franklin Township has a lot of town houses. I live one of the town house complexes. But there are also a lot of single family homes on for 275k-340k (depending on conditions, bedroom and baths).
I'd love to meet you and do what we call a free buyer's consultation to help you identify your wants and needs, help you secure financing, as well as insurance (Title and Homeowners) and of course help you locate your home.
I can show you my favorite spots in South Brunswick as well.
