All of these are good areas with good schools. I am partial to Chatham and Madison, but then again I live in Morris County so... It's really a matter of lifestyle. All of these towns have vibrant 'down town' areas, trains and so on, though I am not sure I would say they had low taxes. Thinking of Maplewood Village, I wonder if Basking Ridge might be a good fit, I think the downtown areas would have a very similar feel. ... more

Commision varies between 5-7% generally speaking. Speak to different realtors to see what there value proposition is and choose a realtor that you feel will meet your needs. Good luck

In contrast, Chatham Borough had a 3.3 month supply and 5 sellers for every buyer. This makes Chatham arguably the best housing market in Morris County. Nearby Madison is a close second. ... more

It is a tough find. Not many around to start with and even fewer hitting the market. They do come on but rarely.
I did search for you to see if any of these homes would be of interest. They are not true craftman style homes but they are of the genre.
Morris County -

Essex County-

Union County-

Let me know if any of these appeal to you. I love older architecturally significant homes and would love to help you find a special home. You can contact me at my website.
Good luck.
