My fiance and I will be moving this summer to NJ, and are looking at the Princeton region. We're willing to look slightly outside, but no further east if possible.

We're looking to rent a good sized 2BR in a nice complex with decent access to major highways, well maintained, possible amenities such as a pool and a good parking situation. We will spend up to $1,800 or so.

Too much to ask, or are there decent options for us? Suggestions?

Thanks!

I know Avalon Watch and the Mews at Princeton Junction are supposed to be pretty nice. You are very close to Rt1 and 295 as well as Princeton. I think you can get a 2br for 1800

Can't say the exact numbers but I believe that this area is one of the best places in NJ for Corporate growth. I worked for Merrill Lynch in that area from 1991 to 1993 and the area was just beginning to get built up.

I am now a commercial r.e. appraiser and have done work in the area over the last 2 years. I was astonished by the growth. As far as apartment prices, I can only tell you that the r.e. down there tends to be cheaper than the more populated areas to the north near NYC.

I would guess that a 2br for $1,800 isn't far off the mark. I know that when I worked down there, most of the people I worked with were fresh out of college and could afford apartments either as a couple or with one rooomate. I am also pretty sure that most of the buildings in the area were built in the 1990s or later so the housing stock tends to be fairly nice.

Hope I helped.

You might consider Plainsboro ( zip- 08536) as well. A quick check of realtor.com shows a couple of units in Ravenscrest, 2 bed/2bath in the 1300 range.
There are also some at Tamarron (1400) and Hampshire (1700).
Plainsboro has pretty good access to Rte. 1 and 295.
