Homebuyers Invest in their Future at Trio Condominiums in Palisades Park

MODEL PENTHOUSE UNIT AT TRIO IN PALISADES PARK.

PALISADES PARK, NJ – Trio, the upscale condominium in Bergen County’s Palisades Park, is proving to be a popular choice for a new generation of buyers who view their primary residence not only as a home, but also a real estate investment.

While finding the perfect residence and lifestyle still top the list of importance in any new home purchase, the added benefits of appreciation, tax advantages and more are quickly gaining traction.  According to a recent Bankrate.com survey, real estate is the top preferred long-term investment option for many, outpacing traditional assets including cash, the stock market and gold.

The challenge lies in identifying markets where the high home values can be attained.  In areas such as Bergen County, N.J., value-packed purchasing opportunities are few and far between as high demand and a lack of inventory have resulted in escalating prices and created tough competition.

Step in Trio, a premium investment opportunity that combines sought after wishes such as location, schools and quality of life with upscale condominiums priced from a very attractive $475,000.   Adding to the great value that already exists at the full-service buildings are limited time summer incentives, including $30,000 off the price of a two-bedroom condominium home and $50,000 off the price of one of Trio’s spectacular Penthouse residences.  What’s more, every home purchase is being offered with a free parking spot.

PALISADES PARK, N.J.– Spring real estate activity in Bergen County is expected to kick off early in 2016 as anxious homebuyers enter the market to take advantage of low interest rates, easier access to financing, and affordable pricing.

Homebuyers Turn to Worry-Free Condominiums for Luxury, Amenities and Savings

MODEL PENTHOUSE INTERIOR AT TRIO IN PALISADES PARK, NJ

PALISADES PARK, N.J. – It’s an important decision many buyers in northern New Jersey face during their new home search: Enjoy the care-free living of a condominium or invest in a single-family residence?

The two differ dramatically in terms of lifestyle.  Several of the advantages of condominiums are already well known, predominantly the ease and convenience of a maintenance-free environment, which eliminates tiresome chores such as trash and snow removal, exterior maintenance and more.  There’s also opportunity to reside in a fully-amenitized building with concierge service and five-star onsite recreational and social amenities.

Single-family residences have benefits as well, highlighted by a sense of privacy, yard space and customized layouts and living space.

Beyond lifestyle considerations are finance and value.  The “hidden” costs for the maintenance and upkeep of a single-family residence can quickly add up.  These additional financial responsibilities often tip the balance in favor of condominiums for many.

“Our purchasers have researched single-family homes only to discover they are often more expensive to purchase and maintain,” says Honey Hwang, Sales Manager for The Marketing Directors, the exclusive sales and marketing agent for Trio, a condominium high-rise in Bergen County’s Palisades Park.

“For example, single-family homeowners assume all of the burden for landscaping, updating and fixing any issues that may arise.   These out-of-pocket expenses are avoided with condominium ownership where the majority of the repairs, improvements and maintenance of the exterior, grounds and building systems are covered by the homeowner association.   Multi-family buildings also offer significant savings on utility bills with a percentage of water and sewer costs shared by homeowners and lower energy costs due to modern appliances and building technology.”

In markets such as Bergen and Hudson Counties, existing single-family residences priced comparably to brand new condominiums often times require improvements and renovations — adding a considerable amount of extra money to the investment.

“Condominiums also appreciate at a faster rate than single-family homes, meaning owners receive more value,” Ms. Hwang continues.  “And, of course, condominiums offer hotel-style services and world class amenities not provided in stand-alone residences.”

Trio is one of the select few new condominium buildings being offered for sale in Bergen County.  The two nine-story buildings have recorded strong sales from homebuyers seeking a worry-free urban lifestyle minutes from New York City.  Continue reading

Ready to move: Everything you need to know about Union City

-3449e42caf9d30a8Shawn Choi never planned to move to Union City. 

He had been living in Jersey City for nine years and commuting to his job in Queens. But with his wife expecting their first child next month, they needed a bigger space than their studio in Newport. They looked in Fort Lee, but were unable to find something that suited their needs, he said.

Then they found a two-bedroom condo in a recently renovated high-rise on Central Avenue. They moved into The Lenox in February.  

“It was much better priced than any other location,” he said. “With our budget, we’re not even able to get a studio in [Newport].”

Gold Coast without a coast

Union City is part of the “Gold Coast”–the roughly 19 mile stretch along the Hudson River that spans several municipalities in Hudson and Bergen counties. Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken and Edgewater tend to dominate the discussion when it comes to growing demand for property in the region, and a quick drive along the waterfront partially explains why. 

Union City–bounded by Jersey City, North Bergen, Weehawken, Hoboken and West New York–doesn’t have waterfront property and doesn’t have direct access to a PATH station or ferry. What the city does have is pedestrian-friendly residential and commercial areas that are not only close to transit options, but offer a diverse mix of restaurants, businesses and entertainment.

Rutgers Professor Chooses Spectacular Three-Bedroom Condo with NYC Skyline View at Lennar’s 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial

1000 Avenue at Port Imperial Landscaped TerraceWEEHAWKEN, N.J. – Westfield residents Jim and Janice Harrington had for years entertained the idea of buying a second home in New York City, but perpetually high prices kept them from looking very seriously. This past summer, they discovered 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial in Weehawken, NJ, Lennar’s new collection of luxury condominium residences on the Hudson River waterfront, just a short ferry ride away from Manhattan.

With its spectacular views of the skyline, convenient access to the city and more favorable price point, the Harringtons decided this was just the opportunity they were looking for. The couple chose a three-bedroom, three-bath home with upscale designer finishes and beautiful northeast vistas of the Manhattan skyline.  It’s become a weekend home for them, one that they can transition into a primary residence down the road if they decide to downsize from their suburban home.

“I liked the place as soon as I walked in,” said Dr. Harrington, an engineering professor at Rutgers University. “I liked the style, the modern nature of the building. And, of course, to have a home right on the Hudson River is terrific. They say if you have a view of water where you live it’s good for you. It’s very restful and meditative. I think that’s true. I can just stand in my living room and stare at the river any time I want, just watching the boats go by. To me, that’s a very relaxing experience.”

1000 Avenue at Port Imperial places the Harringtons just steps from the NY Waterway Port Imperial ferry terminal, which can whisk them across the river to midtown or downtown Manhattan in less than ten minutes. They love New York City, and frequently take advantage of the ferry, but most of their weekends have been spent on the New Jersey side of the river, exploring their surroundings. Continue reading
