Its full steam ahead in 2011 at two Larken Associates’ residential communities in the suburban Warren County Township of Lopatcong.
Brisk sales, significant construction progress and a new schedule of buyer events are being reported by the well-respected homebuilder at Warren Heights, the fast selling condominium community, and Delaware Crossing at Morris Park, the collection of attached single-family homes for active adults.
The fast sales pace is largely attributed to the number of current renters at both communities and savvy prospects who have decided to take advantage of exceptional purchase pricing, low interest rates and limited time builder closing cost credits and move up to homeownership, indicates Marilyn Cornelia, Larken’s Director of Sales and Marketing.
“While renters have certainly contributed greatly to our sales activity, there’s also a considerable segment of the public that recognize the many avenues available at these communities that make homeownership more attainable,” Ms. Cornelia says. “For example, at Warren Heights, Federal programs such as no down payment USDA financing and the 3.5% down payment FHA financing enable buyers to become homeowners with very little money.”
To illustrate and explain just how easy it is to purchase a Larken home, the developer is hosting a home buyer seminar presented by Eventsetgo on Thursday, March 3rd which is open to the public and current renters at Warren Heights and Delaware Crossing. The workshop will focus on and detail the steps to homeownership and feature area real estate professionals such as attorney, realtor, credit expert, home inspector, financial planner and mortgage planner.
Time is running out to purchase at one of remaining condominium homes at Warren Heights which offers incredible value thanks to home prices starting from just $159,990 and special incentives and financing options.
Warren Heights boasts one-bedroom condominium homes with bonus rooms or two-bedroom residences with gourmet kitchens, formal living and dining rooms and master bedrooms offering master bathroom suites, a walk-in closet and attached sitting room.
“Each home comes with many added bonuses,” Ms. Cornelia says, “for example, all condominium residences include an additional private basement storage area in the purchase price.”
Condominium homes are also available for rent from $1,175. There are also a limited number of fully-furnished condominium homes complete with designer furniture and stylish fixtures now available for lease at Warren Heights.
Warren Heights state-of-the-art amenity package includes a clubhouse, two fitness centers, a magnificent outdoor pool, health club, basketball courts, a children’s tot lot, walking and biking trails, a gazebo, putting green, dog run and garden plots.
There’s also everyday necessities such as upscale eateries, retail outlets and professional offices adjacent to the community at Stryker’s Crossing and Stryker’s Plaza — a shopping center and medical and professional building developed in conjunction with Warren Heights.
Delaware Crossing has recorded strong activity on both the sale and rental fronts during the summer season.
Delaware Crossing features single-family attached homes for active adults priced from just $219,990 for purchase and available to rent from $1,495.00 a month.

Active adult homebuyers with a home to sell are heaping high praise on the rent-to-purchase option at Delaware Crossing at Morris Park.
Leasing activity is on the rise at the neighborhood as those aged 55 and older – many who already have a contract on their present home — are deciding to take advantage of unique program in which buyers receive a six-month rent credit back should they choose to purchase at the end of their lease terms.
Two of the community’s most popular designs – the Christie ranch and two-story Danielle – are being offered with a rent-to-purchase option. The Christie ranch is available from $1,595 a month and the Danielle is available from $1,800 a month.
