Sara,
Twin Rivers was built in the early 70s, And it was the first planned urban development Built in New Jersey and maybe United States. You get more house for your money in twin Rivers then anywhere else in the area. However, It is a bit rundown and homes there are harder to sell then anywhere else in East Windsor. If you need to bakehouse for great price a twin Rivers townhouse would be great option. If not, there are other townhouse developments that are more desirable. ... more

HI - That house is still avaialble.

There is an offer and the house is in attorney review, but other offfers are being accepted as the homeowner is out of the country and all will be discussed when they have returned.

http://www.trendmls.com/mls/Client/Email/EmailClick.aspx?s=96385555&k=1496575437

Let me know If you would like to see this or make an offer. Attorney review means that there is an offer and it is being discussed, but all offers would then go to the sellers attorney for ppresentation to the seller, the listing agent is not involved in the presentation.

Hi Abrar,

Making an assumption here, so may be wrong.....but it seems like you are in P'Boro ...possibly renting or in a condo/townhome.....looking to move to a single family home..........perhaps even looking at newer homes.

If you were searching in the price range of what you may be able to find in East Windsor...........there really isn't anything in Plainsboro /WW....Princeton being out of the question.

So basically, EW is more affordable to single-family home ownership for some......if taking a loan & buying in EW, the taxes do constitute a big chunk of the monthly payments.

The tax rate is quite high in EW & for newer homes........high assessments x tax rate = high taxes.

The tax rate in Pboro is 1.91 BTW.

The "nose dive" you are referring to for EW has more to do with inventory accumulation & tailgating pride reductions...even some short sales & foreclosures driving neighboring prices low.

I last sold in EW ( Stonegate) in 2008 & sold the listings at a 98-99% list/sale ratio within 14 days........but know that the absorbtion in 2009 was much slower than the trends in WW/Pboro.

Since July 09 it has been a very different story in WWP ...esp Plainsboro......more recently I have faced multiple offers & sales at list or higher for each property I put in contracts in for my buyers.........believe it or not!
And it is hard to compete within 6-12 offers (the 12 offers happened for a WW townhome !).

To your last comment....I'd say, if you are an EW buyer, please don't expound on that statement without reviewing numbers form ACTUAL sales & days on market etc. for homes sold within the last 3 months or so.

Only THAT will give you a realistic picture of the market trends for the next 2-3 months ahead.

For what it's worth I heard comments like that from analysts, buyers, realtors, pundits , economists etc. ...from 2007 through 2010........and what really happened........the locally dynamic & highly active market is testament to the fact that real estate is local & there are niche markets that create their own momentum & sustainability.

Good luck !

Lorraine,
Georgetown is one of a half dozen townhome communities in East Windsor. Because it is one of the more clustered ones, it is a bit cheaper that others. If you want me to help you find the best townhome to satisfy your budget and wants and needs, I suggest you go to my website's "Ad Gallery" and complete the single page "Wants & Needs" form, and fax or e-mail it back to me. Make sure you provide your e-mail address so I can send you matching townhomes directly from the MLS! ... more

Consult with an East Windsor Realtor or a Realtor that is very familiar with your complex.

Not all areas are buyer's markets.

For example, I just listed a home in Jackson, NJ. In in initial evaluation I advised the sellers that the average days on market for their neighborhood was 40 days. We received a contract in 38 days . . . they netted $5k above their bottom line. ... more

Hi
Hightstown is a boro & has quite a few historic & older homes built to reflect a particular style ( craftsman etc.). So it's a matter of choice.....many buyers prefer to live in a development vs an area with a downtown feel.

The tax rate is higher then east windsor , west windsor , cranbury etc.

The list price reflects the sellers motivation and/or the listing agent's ability to accurately determine& advise the selelr of the current market conditions.
Pricing based on just the MLS comps is not viable & unless an agent is smart enoiugh to understand market conditions , apply this logic to the pricing & advise the seller.........the list price will be one that will eventually be marginalized.
The buyers who would have considered this home for themselves, won't because it's overpriced....the sellers will miss out on the crucial 2-3 weeks of prime time showings & then the house wil sit on the market, price cuts after price cuts; because the potential buyer bought something else.

Hi
You could check with the township assessor's office to confirm when a reassessment is due,but if East Windsor lowered it's tax rate...it would be unprecedented.

Secondly if you follow the link below that should address a lot of your questions

http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/index.html?lpt/localtax.htm~mainFrame

BTW the tax rate for EWindsor is 4.83 & for Hightstown is 5.7 ( Hightstwon Boro)
However, Lawrence is 3.65.

It ultimately comes down to the individual assessed value of each home......what kind of home you are buying & what kind of taxes would you be paying for it.

Are you considering any lifestyle factors, is there a commute, is there an age range for the homes you're looking in.....most importantly a price range?
Factor any of these in your search & the options can change rapidly.
