Marlboro is located in Monmouth County and part of our primary service area. We have access to Plainsboro listings, but do not consider that part of our primary service area. I can pull listings from both towns and look at stats for both towns, but am not well versed about Plainsboro.
Plainsboro is in Middlesex County, near the borders of Monmouth, and Mercer Counties. Plainsboro shares a school district w/ West Windsor (Mercer County) and is highly rated.....as is Marlboro. Here is a link for the school district, the site is quite comprehensive. http://www.west-windsor-plainsboro.k12.nj.us/

For your commute....do you plan on driving, taking a bus, or train. Many individuals choose Marlboro and Matawan as locations for it's public transportation corridor. For driving, you would need to access Route 18 and Route 9, which can move slowly if you drive during peak travel times. For public transportation, Marlboro becomes a community of choice for many.
Here is a link to Marlboro current townhomes for sale:
There were no 1 bedroom townhomes sold in Marlboro last year; 15 2-bedroom townhomes, and 45 3-bedroom townhomes. There have not yet been any closed condo sales this year in Marlboro, but 6 are under contract, and there are 23 for sale. The market for condos is actually doing well. The prices are slightly down, and inventory is not over the top, but provided buyers options.
I do really like Princeton and the areas surrounding, as well as New Brunswick. In that corridor, you are located between 2 well known and well respected Universities if you locate in Plainsboro.
At Marlboro, you have access to the above, plus easier access for day trips to the shore and beach towns. As a resident of Monmouth County, I do have a bias....admittedly.
