TOWN OF WALLKILL, N.Y. –- The ongoing series of “First-Time Homebuyer Seminars” at Woodside Knolls in Orange County’s Town of Wallkill are proving to be a valuable tool to educate prospective purchasers on how they can purchase their dream home today.

Homebuyers from New York City and beyond have gathered in large crowds for the informative sessions to listen and receive advice from renowned real estate professionals such as Bob Metaxas of Countrywide Home Loans (a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America), and discuss how market conditions and exceptional developer incentives have created a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for those homebuyers who act quickly.

First-time buyers, young couples and growing families are eager to learn about the array of financing opportunities that are available to them and highlighted during the seminars. These include friendly financing currently being offered by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) which requires as little at 3.5% downpayment, the $8,000 federal tax cut and much more.

The next seminar will be held this weekend (Saturday, March 21st) from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the community’s sales office, according to Ashley Young, Sales Representative for Baker Residential, developer of the FHA approved collection of 216 fee-simple townhomes. For additional information on the seminar, please call (845) 343-3001.

“While we knew there were a large number of first-time homebuyers eager to learn more about how they can take advantage of economic conditions and realize their dream of homeownership, the high attendance and success of these seminars has been somewhat surprising,” Ms. Young points out. “They are finding it’s an ideal situation to get a well-rounded and comprehensive look at the many financing options available to purchase a home and begin a new suburban lifestyle.”

Woodside Knolls has been a major draw for young couples and families from New York City thanks to its value-packed designs and incredibly affordable prices starting from just the mid-$250,000s — an exceptional price point well below what is typically found in comparable communities in New Jersey and Westchester and Rockland Counties.

Luxury townhomes at Woodside Knolls boast three-bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, a finished basement and two-car garage. The community’s distinctive peaceful environment is enhanced by considerable open space which has heavily matured landscaping.

In addition to the first-time buyers, the community has also had strong appeal to empty nesters looking to downsize from larger single-family homes.

“Empty-nesters are finding Woodside Knolls a perfect alternative to retirement communities located further south,” adds Ms. Young. “Here, they can still enjoy the ease and convenience of townhome living, but in a location close to the family and friends throughout the area.”
Woodside Knolls is just minutes from Route 84 and the New York State Thruway to provide a short commute to destinations in northern New Jersey and Manhattan. The many recreational and entertainment delights of the historic Hudson Valley are also close at hand. Hudson Valley is home to a variety of recreational, cultural and entertainment opportunities, including performing arts venues, historical attractions, fine shopping and a host of state parks and outdoor activities.

There’s also no shortage of recreational diversions available in Wallkill itself. The township boasts twelve parks and recreational areas, including the public Wallkill Golf Club.

“Residents will also have several activities right outside their doorstep thanks to the comprehensive package of on-site recreational amenities,” says Ms. Young. “Once complete, Woodside Knolls will feature a pool, recreation center, tennis court and a half basketball court.”
