I have a moderate income studio for sale in Washington Oaks in Princeton. It has a full kitchen, full bath and washer dryer. It's owned by Princeton Township and they will purchase it back when you are ready to move. Price ranges from approx $77,000 - $135,000 depending on your income which must be between approx $31,000 and $51,000 to qualify. This can be purchased with NO MONEY DOWN.

Marci,
I suggest that you have your son in law contact a local realtor if he hasnt already. For the most part we all cooperate so we show each others listings. In addition he should check out local papers and craigs list etc in the event there are some unlisted homes.

(even if it comes across as perhaps medling). ... more

You may not get a walk-to-train option in that price , but how about one that offers a 5 min commuter bus ride ?

Large rooms, with lots of natural daylight and walking to shopping and amenities , park and Princeton?

Hi Matthew - If you haven't found a place yet, Bordentown City might be an option for you. We have a light rail train station in town (the entire town is basically walking distance to it :) that would take you to Trenton where you could transfer to NJ Transit and head up to Rutgers. It's a great community! ... more

Stooth... EVERY PROPERTY IN NEW JERSEY requires a Certificate of Occupancy or a Fire Inspection or Both... Every TWP is different based on how they interpret the guidelines provided by the state (Trenton - the Capital) but they all have one..
