Why are home prices in marlboro lower than comparable districts w windsor, plainsboro, montgomer, n edison?

Asked by Sb, Franklin Park, NJ Wed Jun 4, 2008

Marlboro seems to have excellent schools. I am looking for 4 br, 2.5 bath, 2700-3000 sq ft within 10 year old
homes. Surprised to find home prices are much lesser than comparable school districts like plainsboro, west windsor, montgomery & north edison.

What is the reason for lower prices in marlboro eventhough the schools seem very good. Am i missing something? Also, how are the property taxes in marlboro?

I think you are referring to locations in NJ, if I am not mistaken. This is appearing in the Marlboro, NY section of Trulia. If I could help, I would. :-)
