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.”
Condominium homes at Trio boast many upscale interior elements including hardwood floors and modern recessed lighting. Gourmet kitchens include granite countertops, stainless steel GE appliances, custom maple cabinets and Kohler fixtures. Designer bathrooms feature Crema Marfil marble floors, granite countertops, custom maple vanities and Kohler fixtures. All homes also come with individual washers and dryers. Residences are available for immediate occupancy.
Situated on the top floors of the two nine-story Trio buildings, the limited collection of Penthouses boasts expansive living spaces with stylish finishes and appointments and prices starting at just $595,000. Five distinctive two- and three-bedroom Penthouse floorplans are available with desired elements such as separate kitchen and dining areas, two-and-a-half to three bathrooms, spacious master bedroom suites with walk-in closets and designer kitchens. Floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the homes in natural light, while hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, marble floors and custom cabinetry add style and detail to every corner.
Some of the Penthouses offer spectacular New York City skyline views, while others feature spanning vistas of the western-facing landscape.
An eclectic collection of resort-like amenities and services at Trio offers homeowners the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities. Found within the buildings is a lounge with billiards, ping pong, a large screen TV and catering kitchen, a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, game room, virtual golf simulator, outdoor terrace and a business center.
“Lifestyle plays an increasingly large role in a buyer’s decision on where to purchase,” says Ms. Kim. “There’s certainly no shortage of things to do at Trio. Our lifestyle amenities provide a well-rounded environment to enjoy, from a workout in the fitness center or yoga studio to practicing their drive in our golf simulator. Residents don’t have to leave the buildings for recreation and entertainment.”
Located at 800 12th Street in Bergen County’s Palisades Park, Trio boasts an outstanding Bergen County location less than ten minutes from the George Washington Bridge and the business, social and cultural offerings of New York City.
Trio is well situated minutes from a number of transportation options, including bus service. Shopping enthusiasts will find a myriad of opportunities at nearby malls, such as Riverside Square and Garden State Plaza, as well as a host of brand-name stores, specialty shops and boutiques, which line Route 4 and Route 17.
“Of course, the proximity to the George Washington Bridge and the New York Waterway ferry service puts Manhattan’s business, social and cultural offerings only a quick trip away,” Ms. Kim adds.
