Hi, I am planning to buy a 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 apart from great living 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..

both towns have "good" section and "bad" section. If you don't know the area well, i would go east brunswick, south brunswick or plainsboro in middlesex county.

North Brunswick is better in the sense that it has less crime, better schools, and is not flood prone like parts of Piscataway can be. It is ALLOT more spread out, but it has easier access to major highways. Only downside is North Brunswick is more expensive.

I lived in Piscataway (Society Hill area) for a long while. Lots of new development (stores, chains, etc) going on. The main plus of Piscataway is that it is the home of Busch/Livingston campus of Rutgers University.

Have no idea about the other brunswicks, other than i used to pass them along rt 18 when going to the borders bookstore.

Default North Brunswick

I Lived In North Brunswick For 18 Yrs. It Is A Great Town, Good Schools. Taxes Have Gone Through The Roof. I Moved Out 4 Yrs Ago For That Reason And We Wanted A Slower Place Of Life. Moved To Soutyh Jersey And Love It. Have Family In Pisc. Schools Ok But Not As Good As North Brunswick, Areas Do Flood. Over All No. Brunswick Is Better, If You Dont Mind The Taxes

"to receive maximum appreciation value in the near future"

I second all the above responses as far as the citities and their rankings are concerned. However, the part of your question above, am afraid, may not be true, more so in the near future. Most that I know believe that next few years, house prices may not even keep up inflation. Of course, one doesn't buy house for pure appreciation and there are many other factors but in case you are...then be prepared for not seeing any appreciation or possibly decline, however small they will be.
