PALISADES 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.”
