ENGLEWOOD, NJ – Lauren DeMarco wanted to enjoy all the conveniences of a maintenance free-lifestyle in an urban-style, commuter-friendly location, without the hustle-and-bustle of New Jersey’s crowded “Gold Coast” cities. After relocating from Pennsylvania to Hudson County, her first home was a two-bedroom rental with Manhattan views in West New York.
“When I moved from Pennsylvania to West New York, I didn’t know much about living in the area,” Ms. DeMarco says. “However, after a few months living in my fourth-floor walk-up apartment, I realized the benefit of the New York City view wasn’t enough to justify the high rent or frustration of living in that area.”
Ms. DeMarco was more than ready to find a new home and decided the time had come to not only move out of her rental apartment, but also it was time to start enjoying the advantages of ownership. She began a search of condominiums and townhomes throughout Hudson and Bergen Counties. After not finding the type of home, environment, or location she was seeking in places such as Jersey City, her realtor suggested she visit The M at Englewood South, a collection of upscale condominiums located just off Route 4 and minutes from the downtown center of this Bergen County City.
“I immediately fell in love when I saw The M,” Ms. DeMarco recalls. “I loved the fact that the homes were brand new and the master bathroom was every girl’s dream!”
For Ms. DeMarco, there was no comparison between The M at Englewood South and other properties she’d visited. She moved quickly to make the community her home.
“I love the parking, elevator, pool and the convenient location,” she continues. “The fact that cable and Internet are included in my considerably low maintenance fee is another significant factor. I also always loved the City of Englewood. It’s a perfect location for my lifestyle.”
Homes at The M at Englewood South are priced from the low-$300,000s. Residences range in size from 755 to 1,499 square feet and 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. There is also oak hardwood flooring throughout the living area and ceramic tile flooring in the entry hall and kitchen.
Condominiums are made even more attractive due to the community’s innovative loan programs that provide special 97% financing. The unique offer enables buyers to purchase with a down payment as low as $9,000.
“This financing program has certainly played a role in our sales success by opening the door to homeownership for many single professionals and young couples who otherwise might not have the initial money needed for a down payment,” says Ellie Kim, Sales Manager for The Marketing Directors, the community’s exclusive marketing and sales agent for The M.
The ideal lifestyle at The M extends well beyond its homes. The community boasts a lively atmosphere created by recreational and social amenities including a sparkling outdoor pool and a resident’s clubroom with a catering kitchen for large parties and entertaining. Residents also receive a one year membership at The Gym, a 40,000 SF state-of-the-art fitness center located at 20 Nordhoff Place.
Located at 1104 Riverview Avenue, The M offers homeowners a setting that blends key suburban conveniences with sought after urban appeal. Englewood’s dynamic downtown features an eclectic offering of upscale shops and boutiques and more than forty fine restaurants and eateries. Major brand name shops can be found at the nearby Garden State Plaza, while the Bergen Performance Arts Center in Englewood features nearly 150 world class performances yearly, ranging from Rock and Classical music to comedy and dance performances.
The community is also a commuter’s dream. The M is minutes from Route 4 with access to the George Washington Bridge and just 12 miles to Manhattan. A parking space in The M’s enclosed parking garage is included in the purchase price. For those wishing to use public transportation, shuttle service is provided from the community to the nearby NJ Transit bus stop which offers convenient service into New York City.
