MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – The escalating rental markets in northern New Jersey and New York City are prompting many young renters to take a closer look at homeownership.
Tired of throwing away expensive monthly rent receipts, these single-professionals, couples and families are turning their attention to northern suburbs such as Orange County, N.Y. where they can purchase affordably priced homes and begin enjoying the countless benefits of ownership, including building equity, tax advantages and the strong sense of pride.
Erica and Tyrone Robinson are the perfect example. The couple were renting an apartment in New Jersey when they determined the smart financial move was to invest in a home they would call their own. After searching the high-priced for-sale market of Bergen County, N.J., the Robinsons discovered the value they were seeking at Maple Fields, a new townhome community from Baker Residential in Middletown, N.Y. with prices starting from the upper $200,000s.
“My rent in northern New Jersey was more than what my mortgage payment at Maple Fields presently is,” says Mrs. Robinson. “Here, I receive considerably more space in a brand new townhome for a less expensive price.”
While the attractive price point was a key factor in their decision to purchase at Maple Fields, the collection of 196 three-bedroom residences filled many of the other characteristics the Robinsons were looking for in a new home, ranging from interior design to neighborhood environment.
“The open floor concept at Maple Fields invites natural light to fill homes and the inside finishes are modern and pretty,” Mrs. Robinson continues. “We also like the fact that it was a townhome community and we didn’t have to worry about maintenance ourselves. The fact that the neighborhood and school district are very welcoming to families and children was another aspect that made Maple Fields so desirable.”
The community’s close proximity the many business, shopping and outdoor delights of the historic Hudson Valley was an added bonus.
“Maple Fields is centrally located by everything you need,” Mrs. Robinson points out. “We can enjoy the on-site recreational and social facilities or easily reach any of the nearby amenities.”
The transition into an active and established neighborhood is well underway at Maple Fields which has welcomed more than 70 families. The bustling environment has captured the attention of many visitors, resulting in the near sell-out of the community’s current housing phase.
Homes available do, however, offer favorable housing opportunities, including fast delivery dates. Townhomes in Phase 2 at Maple Fields are the final homes offered with delivery dates in 2015. This limited selection of residences also boasts desirable end unit locations, providing buyers a considerable amount of added privacy and serenity.
Townhomes in Maple Fields second housing phase provide additional upgrades in the purchase price, including stainless steel refrigerator and state-of-the-art washer and dryer. These new appointments join gourmet-inspired kitchens with breakfast nooks, formal dining rooms, attached two-car garages and finished lower level as high-end standard features in the homes. Homes range from 2,274 to 2,329 square-feet of living space.
Residents of Maple Fields receive a number of on-site recreational amenities right outside their door, including a tot lot and 1/2 basketball court that have recently debuted. Construction is also moving forward quickly on the community’s clubhouse facility which will include a sparkling outdoor pool when completed.
Homeowners also have the added benefit and convenience of a beautiful Orange County location. The scenic rolling hills, heavily wooded terrain and tremendous open space create the ideal suburban environment.
Maple Fields is located within close proximity to Route 84, the New York State Thruway and express buses and trains into Manhattan.
The Maple Fields sales office is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For additional information on the community, please call 914-461-9208 or visit www.maple-fields.com.
