Here's the update:
I got a verbal offer last Friday while I was out there and countered today. They accepted my counter and they are sending a formal offer in the next couple of days.
Feeling really good about it all and liked what I saw of central NJ. I want to thank everyone who posted publicly and privately about this move. It was really great to feel the support from my online friends.
The areas I liked (and could afford) are North Brunswick and around Princeton like East Windsor.
I'm able to work from home for a couple of months and will most likely move the end of April or first of May.
Hope to meet some of you East coast appugers soon.
