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.”

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.”

“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

First-time buyers key to housing

Record

Joy Abma, 23, and Dan Charnesky, 24, expected to rent an apartment after their wedding this spring.

But when they looked at the high rents — and the difficulty of finding a place that would take their three dogs — they decided to try to buy a home instead. “We had been saving for a very long time, so we ended up with enough money for a down payment,” said Abma, a nurse who lives in Wyckoff.

After several months of looking, she and Charnesky, a landscaper, are to close on an Oakland split-level house this month. “We thought, ‘We might as well do it while we’re young,’ ” Abma said.

But buying a home when you’re young is more difficult than ever. Thanks to high student debt, stricter mortgage standards and years of slow employment and income growth, people in their 20s and 30s have found it tough to get their first toehold in homeownership — and that’s a problem for the whole real estate market. Without enough first-timers to jump-start a chain of purchases, homeowners can’t trade up to their second and third homes.

First-timers may return to the market in greater numbers this year, however, according to some analysts, who point to low interest rates, a stronger job market and high rents, all of which make buying more attractive.

Michael Kusnir, who grew up in New Milford and just bought a $295,000 condo at the M in Englewood, works in his family’s elevator-inspection business. He knows he was fortunate to have that job opportunity.

“I got lucky with my family company,” said Kusnir, 24, who is engaged to his high school sweetheart. “I know friends who just graduated college, they just can’t get a job.”
