There are many buyers who commute to NY who specifically seek out Marlboro and Manalapan for their home. We have 3 very serious buyers at the moment who fit that description, and 1 just went under contract. The other two are lookingâ€¦literally every day. I have had in depth discussions with them about commute times and options for transportation.
Route 9 narrows to 2 lanes and there are bottlenecks there during peak times as a result. An important consideration will be how far you are from a Park and Ride, bus stop, train station, or the route which is the access point for you to reach a highway.
There are buyers who will specifically search East of Route 9, which narrows the options. Others will search only within a short distance of Route 9 in either direction to lighten the commute time.
The commute time is a definite consideration and top of the mind topic when considering Manalapan/Marlboro as a home and reaching NYC on a regular basis. However, it is quite doable, and you will be in good company, since many of the neighbors and residents in the area have chosen this area as their home with those same considerations.
If you want specific help, please let me know.
