I don't think 5-6 sales is enough data to be talking about this trend

To the author - Washington Twp is now called Robbinsville Twp. The name was changed a few years ago.

I think the information in this article is not accurate at all. Robbinsville (Washington Twp) in mercer county does not have a median sale price of $817k.
