Hi, I am planning to buy my first home in Central, NJ. I am confused between North Brunswick and Piscataway townships.
Please advise which is a better city/township to buy a home in order to receive maximum appreciation value in the near future considering all aspects like income, crime rate, school districts, flood zones, etc.
This will help us to zero down on a particular area.
Thank you..

Default My honest Opinion...

I have no idea if the areas going to appreciate/depreciate...Sorry. But, I personally prefer Piscataway. It was once less developed and continuing to be developed, with parks and new homes. I think you have better chances of appreciation there. Both areas are nice, but Piscataway is better.

I say Piscataway, I'm a Rutgers girl and have ventured through both towns on numerous occasions. Piscataway is really nice, and a lot of diversity.

Piscataway is slightly closer to NYC. Also, it's more central for commuting. 2 train stations within 5 minutes. 2 more within 10 minutes and 5 exits off highway 287 ensure you're not stuck waiting to get on or off.

Many white collar jobs in the city. Lots of parks. Low crime. Blue ribbon elementary school. High school for both are similar, reasonable, not amazing.

Here is a link to a city comparison:

Hope this helps.

thanks,
Amir

Piscataway is quite large. Which and how many stations are close depends on which part of Piscataway you live in. I live in the Birch Run area of Piscataway and there are three train stations (Dunellen, Bound Brook and Bridgewater) within 3.5 miles, 2 more train stations (Finderne and Plainfield) within 6 miles and 2 more (Edison and New Brunswick) within 8 miles.

Hi, North Brunswick is underways to build a transit village where the old Johnson and Johnson plant use to be. I bet that will bring up the value of one's home.

Default Buyer need helps for areas-Piscataway,Bridgewater,East brunswick

Hi,

I heard Bridgewater is a good area and and looked at houses there but realised most of newer houses (0-12 years) are close to each other with the backyard running into the neighbours.So we dropped that.
I havent checked out East brunswick.But heard the houses are older.
Finally I saw a house in river road-maplehurst section of Piscataway.It is in the range of low 600's.Cul-de-sac and private backyard.

Does anybody have a feedback on these 3 townships?For piscataway I am looking at riverroad only.My price range is 550-650

Thanks a lot!

East Brunswick!

Great schools, wonderful water park, fantastic library and senior center, great transportation to NYC, shopping is terrific, little crime. There are older and newer homes. Close to Turnpike, Rt. 1. Take Rt 18 to the Jersey shore and the Parkway South. People move here just because of the Blue Ribbon Schools. I've lived in No. Brunswick and worked in Piscataway. Check them all out and then move to East Brunswick.
