I live in Jersey. Happy to give my advice. Edison is a pretty nice area. One thing you'll want to do is live near a train station with a direct line if you plan on commuting to nyc often, otherwise it will be hell. I would also take a look at Marlboro and the surrounding area. Would also check out Parsippany, Morristown, and that area if you won't be commuting as often. It may be a bit above your price range though, but worth checking out. Unfortunately 500k in Jersey doesn't go as far as it used to.

That's the real issue here. 500K doesn't give too much options and so far I didn't like what I saw in my budget. Edison is what I'm considering so far but I will look at other areas you mentioned. Thanks

Try Secaucus

Under 500K, its hard to find one in Secaucus. Have you come across any in that price range? Thanks

Adventures in Interviewing: Today we were wrapping up a pretty good interview with a strong potential candidate.

The candidate declared that they did not believe in vaccines, so we needed to allow her to be a permanent remote hire. I guess I’m glad about the dodged bullet, so there’s that.
