LITTLE EGG HARBOR, NJ – After 45 years, Nancy Cotter and Gary Lee decided to leave their single-family home in Union, NJ behind in exchange for the resort-inspired lifestyle offered at K. K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Harbor Bay, the collection of 387 single-family residences for active adults located in the Ocean County Township of Little Egg Harbor.
However, as excited as the couple was to begin the next stage of their lives, putting their home on the market during the real estate downturn concerned them.
“The From Your Home to Ours program was the key in the selling of our Union house,” says Ms. Cotter. “K. Hovnanian paid for a stager to visit our home and provide us with a detailed analysis of how we could make it more marketable.”
After reviewing a proposal from Janice Van Der Veken of Town and Country Home Staging, LLC, the couple decided to hire her to make their home more real estate-market ready.
“Ms. Van Der Veken did a remarkable job staging our home,” recalls Ms. Cotter. “In fact, she did such tremendous work that our house never even made it onto the market!
“In addition to being a stager, Ms. Van Der Veken also has her realtors license and when the suggested enhancements were complete she asked us if she could host an exclusive showing for a client she thought might like the space. The program worked remarkably well and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome.”
A signed sales contract enables homebuyers to take advantage of this exclusive program — which has been designed to maximize the opportunity to market an existing home and get purchasers into their new K. Hovnanian residence as quickly as possible. For more information on K. Hovnanian’s From Your Home to Ours program, homebuyers should speak with their Sales Consultant.
“This complimentary service offered by K. Hovnanian is worth its weight in gold, especially for those who seriously consider the suggestions given,” says Ms. Van Der Veken. “Ms. Cotter and Mr. Lee were perfect candidates for this program; motivated and very ready to sell their home, they were making changes almost immediately.”
As the couple moves into their new home, they do so with the confidence of knowing that their existing residence has been sold. They now join the many residents already enjoying the sought-after resort inspired lifestyle offered at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Harbor Bay.
“The outstanding lifestyle enjoyed by the residents of Four Seasons at Harbor Bay is about to get even better,” says Glenn Ward, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Matzel and Mumford Organization, a K. Hovnanian Company which is marketing Four Seasons at Harbor Bay. “Currently under construction is the community’s 16,000-square-foot clubhouse and lifestyle facility which is expected to be available this coming winter.”
When completed, the recreational center will mirror the Craftsman-style architecture found throughout the community, while dramatic interior spaces will boast an array of designer finishes and appointments as well as a variety of upscale amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool and sauna, separate men’s and women’s card room and a billiards room.
