The Positives of Buying a New Construction Condo or TownHome.
by Marie Episale, REALTOR, ePRO, RECS

This moment in time in the housing market offers compelling reasons to consider a New Construction purchase.  Developers have made recent land acquisitions at bottom of the market pricing.  These low price land acquisitions enables a lower cost to be passed on to the purchaser.

New construction benefits include things like affordable pricing and owning a brand new home instead of a resale.  Many New Construction Condo complexes include optional features at no charge to buyers, converting thousands of dollars of “upgrades” that are now included in the price into an improved home without any additional cost.  Included now are such things as Hardwood floors, Tile Tub and Shower Surrounds, Granite Countertops, Stainless Steel Kitchen appliance package, Laundry Room washer and dryer, Custom Crown Molding, Door & Base Trim details, Closet rack systems and Pre Wiring for Cable & Internet.

Expensive maintenance issues that today’s first time buyer is determined to avoid is virtually non existent in a new construction purchase.  Concerns about foundations, roofs, plumbing, and electrical systems are transferred to your reputable builder and the comfort of a new home warranty.  Beautiful landscape designs and newly paved roads add to the curb appeal of the newly constructed community.  

Building materials have improved and many “green products” are now incorporated into the construction of your new condo or townhome.  Energy efficient appliances and mechanical systems, low “e” windows, improved “acoustical” insulation, better exterior wall materials are now used in the building process.  The wiring of older homes was done much differently than houses today.  Builders could not then anticipate the invention of high definition televisions, computers and the different electrical and wiring requirements they would introduce.  Today’s builder incorporates advanced wiring to accommodate today’s electronics, internet and communication needs.

Homebuyer preference is for open floor plans and rooms that flow into each other.  These layouts of Kitchens with Center Islands that flow into  Dining and Great Rooms are commonplace in New Condo construction. Higher ceilings also enhance the feeling of spaciousness.

If you live in the Northern New Jersey area, and are considering buying a new condo or townhouse, you may want to visit the Sales Center for PARKSIDE AT WANAQUE.  This 88 unit community of Townhome and Condo styles is located at Boulevard and Fourth in Haskell, NJ and is being built by Greentree Development Group.  Pre Construction pricing starts at $169,000 for Condo style and $239,000 for TownHome style.  Most desired “upgrade” features are included at no cost to buyers. This Community is being marketed by Century 21 Crest Real Estate and the Sales Center is located at 142 Route 23 N, Pompton Plains, NJ - 973-646-7476 Parkside at Wanaque
