TOWN OF WALLKILL, N.Y. – Recording a number of sales in the last two months alone, Woodside Knolls continues to defy expectations and remains the exception to the rule during this real estate downturn.
Stemming from the recent release of the community’s third housing phase, the once brisk sales pace has now become a frenzy as first-time homebuyers rush to the community for a chance to purchase one of these exceptional new homes which offer private cul-de-sac locations and back up wooded areas, according to Baker Residential, developer of the collection of fee-simple townhomes in Orange County Town of Wallkill.
“It was obvious from the beginning that homebuyers recognized what an incredible value Woodside Knolls presented,” notes Sales Representative Ashley Young. “However, since the release of the third housing phase we’ve certainly seen an uptick in traffic as savvy buyers make a play for these outstanding homes.”
Young couples and single-professionals will have the perfect opportunity to have an up-close look these townhome residences while learning the essentials about purchasing a new home when Woodside Knolls hosts an informative seminar on the Simple Steps to Home Buying this Saturday, July 25th beginning at noon in the community’s sales office.
The event will provide an opportunity to listen and learn about how easy it is to make their dream of homeownership a reality at the suburban neighborhood. Topics will include an overview of development and sales, selections of interior features and colors, description of orientation meetings and warranty information. Attendees will have the chance to speak and receive advice from mortgage specialist Bob Metaxas of Bank of America who will answer mortgage questions including friendly Federal Housing Administration (FHA) financing which requires as little at 3.5% downpayment. Woodside Knolls is FHA Approved. Homebuyers will also learn about the developer’s $10,000 closing cost incentive and the interest buy-down program.
Following the seminar, attendees can tour the community’s three model homes. For additional information on the Simple Steps to Homeownership, please call (845) 343-3001.
Residences at Woodside Knolls feature breathtaking layouts that include 2,400 to 2,600 square feet of living space and 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. Public transportation is also nearby with the Metro North Railroad just minutes away.
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 the Town of Wallkill itself. The township boasts twelve parks and recreational areas, including the public Town of 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.”
