Best of the country life, close enough to the city - 12/20/2011
Hillsborough is bucolic, many acres still used for farming, but lots of developments as well. The school system is rated very highly, and the community is somewhat diverse. The climate is temperate, but you will get snow in the winter, sometime lots, and heat in the summer, also sometimes lots. It's close enough to many industries and colleges.

Hillsborough Quality of Life - 9/20/2009
Hillsborough is close enough to major metropolitan areas of NYC and Philly, and has a wealth of excellent restaurants and cultural activities within a ten-mile radius. Yet the town is also spread out, with 54 square miles of space,and diverse with housing ranging from apartments and condos to farms and McMansions. The YMCA has a great pool, the high school is large and well kept up, and the community spirit is strong.

housing and construction - 10/28/2008
New housing is not at a stand still, and in Hillsborough new homes are still selling! Although things are tight in the housing market there are still houses being bought and sold.

As a Construction Sub-code Official, I recommend that you check on any contractor who works in your home to avoid any problems later on.
Ask for a License number and for a Legitimate certificate of Insurance.
N.J. law requires only a 10% deposit on any work ! Do Not hand over
1/2 the amount of a contract price. Call consumer Affairs if you are in doubt.Read More
