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.

Limited Time Homebuyer Incentives Give Trio Condos the Edge in Bergen County’s Housing Market

triocondo-14-2mbPALISADES PARK, N.J. – Homebuyers deciding between upscale, maintenance-free multi-family living and a single-family home have a new incentive to move forward with the purchase of a stress-less residence at Trio, the luxury high-rise condominium in Bergen County’s Palisades Park.

Special limited-time promotions available at the two nine-story buildings provide $30,000 off the price of a two-bedroom condominium home and $50,000 off the price of a spectacular Penthouse residence.

The great savings are another reason why buyers ranging from empty-nesters looking to scale down from larger homes and young families first entering the housing game are ending the debate between single-family and condominium residences by opting for a full-service lifestyle at Trio.

Many 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.

Beyond lifestyle considerations for those choosing between single-family homes and condominiums 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.

“Our purchasers have researched single-family homes only to discover they are often more expensive to purchase and maintain,” says Brandon Ochs, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors, exclusive sales and marketing agent for Trio.

“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,” Mr. Ochs 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.

Condominiums at Trio are priced from $475,000 and feature the latest interior finishes and appointments, including hardwood floors and modern recessed lighting, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel GE appliances, custom maple cabinets and Kohler fixtures and 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.

Trio’s limited collection of Penthouse residences are situated on the top floors of the two nine-story buildings and offer expansive living spaces with 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 Mr. Ochs.  “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,” Mr. Ochs adds.
