ALLAMUCHY, N.J. –- The opportunity to make a well-educated and informed decision is proving to make the difference for many homebuyers during the Grand Opening of Baker Residential’s Mountain Ridge at Panther Valley in Warren County’s Allamuchy Township.
A tremendous public response welcomed the community during its official debut in June as prospective buyers jumped at the chance to purchase an elegant three-bedroom townhome at affordable prices starting from $249,990 and sales have continued to flourish throughout the summer fueled by the “Simple Steps to Homeownership” seminars which provide a comprehensive look at the purchasing process at the suburban neighborhood.
Prospects in large numbers turned out for the first event which offered detailed information on buying a home and tours of some of the buildings under construction at the magnificent new community. Homebuyers will be afforded another opportunity to see these homes and listen and learn about how easy it is to make their dream of homeownership a reality at Mountain Ridge when Baker Residential hosts a second seminar on Saturday, August 22nd.
Topics will include an overview of development and sales, selections of interior features and colors, description of orientation meetings and warranty information. Attendees can also speak and receive advice from a mortgage specialist on loan options and the fact that Mountain Ridge is expected to be approved by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has had strong appeal to first-time buyers. This means qualified buyers could take advantage of friendly FHA financing that requires only 3.5% down.
“The home buying process can often be very confusing and stressful,” says Barbara Cohen, Sales Representative for Baker Residential. “Whether they’re purchasing their first residence or getting back into the housing market, prospects appreciate the chance to learn more about buying a home in a relaxed and comfortable setting.
“Once they discover how simple it is and how close they actually are to owning a brand new townhome, many are finding their decision is much easier.”
Mountain Ridge at Panther Valley has widespread appeal to homebuyers ranging from single-professionals and young couples to empty-nesters looking to scale down to more manageable homes. All recognize the incredible value inherent in its spacious housing designs, beautiful natural location, extremely competitive introductory prices and buyer-friendly programs.
“The opportunity to take advantage of federal programs is certainly a draw for many young professionals purchasing their first home,” says Ms. Cohen. “On the other hand, empty-nesters looking to trade in large single-family homes with no longer needed bedrooms and tiresome upkeep appreciate the low-maintenance, care-free lifestyle.
“Simply put, Mountain Ridge offers something for everyone.”
Five different designs are offered at Mountain Ridge ranging from 1,968 to 2,850 square feet and boasting 2.5 baths, one-or two-car garages, as well as designer interior appointments such as walk-in closets, gourmet kitchens and full finished basements included in the purchase price.
Homes at Mountain Ridge have been designed to reflect the natural beauty of Panther Valley, which is defined by rolling hills and heavily wooded terrain. Each townhome building will combine design elements with country-inspired details to create streetscapes of enormous grace and flair.
“Our unique location at the top of a mountain provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside to strengthen the tranquil, small-town environment,” adds Hollis Schlip, another Baker Sales Representative.
The striking new community will be a part of Panther Valley and its world-class recreational amenities. Residents will enjoy two sparkling lakes, two beautiful pools with a third to come, a wealth of tennis courts and the 18-hole Panther Valley Golf & Country Club located within the gated Panther Valley community and available on a membership-only basis.
