MODEL PENTHOUSE AT TRIO

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.

“We’re seeing an increase in homebuyers who want the ideal home for their family, but also have an eye focused on finding the highest values and seek the stability and financial benefits of real estate investment, including the possibility of an eventual income-producing property,” says Ellie Kim, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and sales agent at Trio.

“They’re frustrated with the lack of supply in the Bergen County market which has created rising prices.  They’re exhausted from competing in bidding wars for properties in good condition. And they’re tired from having to look even harder to not only find the right home, but also get the most for their money.”

Trio, Ms. Kim points out, eliminates many of these impediments with a strong inventory of homes and a mix of floorplans that fit differing lifestyle needs, all in a modern high-rise building with a full suite of amenities and services.

“The complete package at Trio makes it attractive to homebuyers who consider this purchase as much more than a home,” she says.  “Designer homes, access to world-class amenities, a desirable location minutes from the George Washington Bridge and, of course, attractive pricing have created everlasting value.  It’s the right fit for buyers looking for sophisticated living and a high return on investment.” Continue reading

Year-End Brings Fresh and Exciting New Start for Homebuyers at Trio Condominiums in Palisades Park

MODEL PENTHOUSE CONDOMINIUM AT TRIO IN PALISADES PARK, NJ

recordPALISADES PARK, NJ – The year-end has brought an exciting new start for many who have already began the process of purchasing a home when the calendar flipped to 2017.

Buyers from throughout Bergen County and beyond are soon to be enjoying the many advantages of making homeownership a main New Year’s resolution, highlighted by a fresh and exhilarating new lifestyle and a strong sense of pride.  Outside lifestyle benefits and personal fulfillment, there’s a long list of practical and financial reasons why the New Year is a perfect time to purchase.

Traditionally, the buying market slows during cold and wintery weather, creating less competition for homes and providing a greater range of choices at the start of the New Year.

This is a considerable factor in areas such as Bergen County where inventory for new for-sale homes is limited.  As spring inches closer and temperatures and the market heat up, the pool of prospects grows and the buying process becomes more aggressive.

“Many of our recent buyers want to get a jump by purchasing now,” says Brandon Ochs, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and sales agent at Trio, a collection of upscale condominiums in Palisades Park.  “They’re motivated to achieve the significant life milestone of homeownership in the New Year and want to ensure they receive the exact residence and lifestyle they’ve always dreamed of.”

Fiscally savvy homebuyers also want take advantage of tax deductions, stability of real estate investment and beginning building equity in their home as soon as possible.  Better yet, there’s often many special incentives offered on new homes that provide additional savings and create value.

Great Boozy Holiday Gifts

giftguide-booze-lowres-5674

via Marquerite Preston at The Wirecutter – Like a lot of people, I’ve given the gift of alcohol many times. Sometimes it’s the gift of last resort: the bottle of wine I buy on the way to a party, the bottle of whiskey for that one person who really has me stumped this year. Alcohol is an easy present to give anyone who drinks because it’s guaranteed to be used, guaranteed to be enjoyed. But for the right person—the wine connoisseur, the beer geek, the cocktail enthusiast—the gift of booze (or something booze-related) can also be exciting and special.

Here are the boozy gifts we’d be excited to give—and get—all offering a little something more than the basic bottle of wine, or, for that matter, any of the practical gear we spend all year testing. We’ve included the best spirits your loved ones may never have tried, the best books to expand their drinking horizons, and the gear to make every cocktail hour feel like a special occasion.

This list comes backed by the pros. I asked for advice from five experts in the world of drinks and drinking: Talia Baiocchi, Joshua M. Bernstein, Martin Cate, Jeffrey Morgenthaler, and Ann Tuennerman. Baiocchi is the editor-in-chief of the online magazine Punch and the author, with Leslie Pariseau, of the cocktail book Spritz; Bernstein is a beer and spirits writer, and the author most recently of the book Complete IPA; Cate is the owner of San Francisco’s renowned tiki bar, Smuggler’s Cove, and the author of a book by the same name; Morgenthaler is a cocktail writer, author of The Bar Book, and bar manager at Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon; Tuennerman is the founder of Tales of the Cocktail, a world-renowned series of cocktail festivals. Everything here is something one (or more) of them recommended, and sure to please even the most discerning of drinkers.

Manners: Holiday Edition

The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time to brush up on your etiquette and rules for best behavior during this season of events and gatherings. There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing you presented yourself well as a host or guest. Fortunately, we’re sharing advice on everything from attending the office party to hosting your own holiday shindig to giving memorable gifts. Read on for 20 practical tips you can use for this holiday season!

Always RSVP

A timely holiday invitation should always be sent at least a month prior to the event. If the event is more formal, plan on sending out invitations up to two months in advance. The invitation should include specific details about the celebration, such as the date, time and location as well as the dress code, if any. If your party is an adults-only occasion, avoid using the phrase, “no kids,” and opt for a friendlier approach that lists the names of the guests you intend to invite. Most importantly, include an RSVP date for recipients to respond. This will give you a headcount prior to the party to create a menu that serves everyone attending. If you are a guest, make it a priority to RSVP as soon as you know you can or cannot attend. Avoid missing the RSVP date by setting a reminder on your calendar.
