ENGLEWOOD, NJ – Former renters John Kelly and Joe Grieco didn’t have to look far to find a perfect new home to fit their needs.
The two had been living in an apartment at The Sheffield, a rental complex along Route 4 in the Bergen County City of Englewood, when escalating rents convinced them it was time to invest in a home and begin enjoying the many advantages of ownership.
“Our rent had become increasingly expensive so we decided to start researching single-family residences and condominiums to purchase,” says Mr. Kelly. “We focused on for sale homes primarily in Bergen and Passaic Counties which is near where we are from and is close to work.”
And while Messrs. Kelly and Grieco’s new home search would often take them miles away from their Sheffield apartment, they would eventually realize the ideal purchasing opportunity was right next door at The M at Englewood South, a collection of 125 upscale condominium homes located at 104 Riverview Avenue.
“Having lived at The Sheffield we were already aware of the great location The M provides,” Mr. Kelly remarks. “We knew we would be in close proximity to downtown Englewood, Paramus, the shopping and services of Bergen County, New York City, as well as all major highways.”
The M at Englewood South’s prime location combined with attractive pricing starting from the low $300,000s gave the community a sizable edge over the other properties they had visited.
“In addition to pricing and location, we liked the fact that the condominiums were new construction and offered the latest interior features and appointments,” Mr. Kelly continues. “Added bonuses were the very well-kept grounds and common areas and a kind, accommodating and professional sales, management and maintenance staff.”
John and Joe are just two of the many young homebuyers who create a vibrant and active living environment at The M at Englewood South. The community’s affordable price structure and a special 97% financing program that provides homeownership with a down payment as low as $9,000 have made The M a popular choice for first-time buyers..
Another strong consideration is the community’s immediate occupancy residences, a significant advantage for young buyers who don’t want to wait very long to move into their new home
“Our condominiums provide the best-of-both-worlds,” says Ellie Kim, Sales Manager for The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and sales agent for The M. “Buyers receive the luxury interior features and appointments of a newly-built condominium without having to wait the typical six-to-nine month delivery timeline.”
One- and two-bedroom homes at The M at Englewood South range in size from 797 to 1,499 square feet. All residences feature open living space, sumptuous bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchens with maple cabinetry, under-counter lighting and granite countertops, large laundry areas with side-by-side General Electric washers and dryers, and large walk-in closets. Lavish master bathrooms boast granite countertops and double-sink vanities. There is also oak hardwood flooring throughout the living area and ceramic tile flooring in the entry hall and kitchen. An additional powder room is included in most homes as well.
Visitors to The M at Englewood South can see exactly how much home they receive for their money, thanks to the recent debut of a new two-bedroom model home. The fully-furnished 1,230 square-foot condominium features 2.5 baths, a spacious master bedroom with walk in closet, an open kitchen with modern appliances and cabinetry and an expansive living/dining area.
