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.

Priced from just $595,000, Penthouse homes are being offered with a limited time incentive that provide up to $50,000 off the purchase price.

“The Bergen County market has responded strongly to our Penthouse residences and this sale exemplifies the growing desire to live in modern, well-appointed homes in a luxury building,” says Ellie Kim, Sales Manager for The Marketing Directors.  “Buyers are turning to Trio which represents one of the few opportunities to purchase a for-sale Penthouse condominium, complete with brand new, designer finishes and a location near the Hudson River waterfront.   These homes offer something that is hard to find in the Bergen County marketplace.”

In addition to the Penthouses, a limited collection of two-bedroom condominiums are also available at Trio, priced from $475,000. Continue reading

TRIO CONDOMINIUMS IN PALISADES PARK, NJ

PALISADES PARK, N.J. – Mr. Ane had been living at Trio in Palisades Park for well over a year, renting one of its upscale condominium homes and fully enjoying its commuter-friendly location, ideal neighborhood setting and the ease and convenience of a full-service, professionally-managed high-rise building.

“When I was renting, I loved everything about Trio,” he says.  “The building is very clean and well-kept, the residents are nice and friendly and the neighborhood is very quiet.”

While he loved his rental lifestyle at Trio, Mr. Ane decided it was time to purchase and, despite his high regard for the Bergen County building, initially researched homes in neighboring locations.  He would visit a new townhome at Liberty Square at Westmont Station in Wood Ridge, N.J. and a condominium at One Hudson Park in Edgewater, NJ.  Both communities offered desirable attributes, but simply couldn’t pull Mr. Ane from all that he treasured at Trio.

“With its proximity to work in Ridgefield Park, ability to easily access New York City, safe neighborhood, outstanding management and maintenance staff and, of course, luxurious and sophisticated homes, purchasing at Trio was hard to resist,” he says. Continue reading

Limited Inventory in Bergen County Condo Market Expected to Create Competitive Spring Selling Season

MODEL PENTHOUSE UNIT AT TRIO IN PALISADES PARK

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.

The likely surge in activity is expected to strongly affect the new construction condo market where inventory continues to decline and limited purchasing opportunities are available.  This is particularly true on or near Bergen County’s Hudson River waterfront where the majority of new construction activity has been highly concentrated on upscale rental homes.

“We anticipate the spring 2016 condo market will be very competitive, especially in the new construction sector,” says Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, an exclusive marketing and sales agent active in Bergen County.  “With limited inventory, housing prices will steadily grow and savvy homebuyers will have to act fast to get the best deals available.  We’ve already seen a number of interested prospect visit our sales centers who are qualified and ready to move forward quickly.”

Trio, the upscale high-rise condominium minutes from the George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River waterfront in Palisades Park, is one of The Marketing Directors’ new home communities that has experienced an uptick in buyer interest heading into the spring selling season.  The collection of two-and three-bedroom homes has benefitted from the introduction of special homebuyer incentives that create unmatched value.
