TOWN OF WALKILL, N.Y. –- 2008 shaped up to be a banner year at Woodside Knolls as the collection of 216 fee-simple townhomes in the Orange County Town of Walkill set the standard for new home sales in the Hudson Valley region.
Offering attractively-priced, value-packed residences that have strong appeal to first-time homebuyers, the intimate community recorded nearly 90 sales in 2008 outperforming almost all competing new home developments in the area, reports Baker Residential, developer of Woodside Knolls.
Homes at Woodside Knolls are priced from the mid-$250,000s.
“There are several reasons why Woodside Knolls has achieved incredible success since its official opening in January,” says Sales Representative Ashley Young. “First and foremost, many are finding the opportunity to purchase a well-appointed home priced considerably less than comparable communities in New Jersey and Rockland and Westchester Counties to good to pass up.
“Buyers have also been spurred by economic conditions that have created a buyer’s market and resulted in historically low interest rates. To tie it all together, we’ve held monthly first-time homebuyer seminars with prominent mortgage professionals to dispel the myths regarding financing availability, educate our prospects on the friendly loan programs and show how attainable homeownership is.”
Woodside Knolls First-Time Homebuyer Seminars are held in the community’s sales center and provide information about the array of financing opportunities now available to open the door to homeownership at the community. The loan programs highlight builder special financing incentives, as well as Federal Housing Authority (FHA) that requires only 3% to 5% down, the $7,500 first-time homebuyer tax credit, special interest buy-down programs available at Woodside Knolls and much more.
