— Weichert to Answer All Real Estate-Related Questions as Attendees Learn About the Advantages of Owning vs. Renting —
JERSEY CITY, N. J. (Aug. 4, 2008) — In today’s real estate market, prospective buyers are plagued by uncertainty. With no way to gauge which way the market is heading, many individuals are not sure if it’s better for them to own or rent a home.This question and more will be answered on Thursday, Aug. 7, when Weichert New Homes holds a homebuyers seminar at The Residences at Dixon Mills, Robert Martin Company’s landmark condominium conversion in Jersey City, N.J.
Expert sales agents from Weichert New Homes, the exclusive sales team for the community, will discuss the advantages of owning one of Dixon Mills’ stellar residences versus renting at other luxury communities along the Gold Coast. While there are many positives when it comes to owning a home, the savings a buyer will receive over the long term is the most important reason.
“Buying a home is clearly one of the most important decisions and purchases a person will ever make, and nowadays, many renters are hesitant to take that next step,” said Greg Berger, principal of Robert Martin Company, partner of Dixon mills. “This homebuyers seminar will outline the many reasons why purchasing a condo at Dixon is the smartest decision a renter could ever make. Just ask the over-115 buyers — the majority of them first-time buyers — who’ve already made the move.”
In addition to saving money, Dixon Mills’ residents enjoy homes that boast chic industrial architecture and one-of-a-kind floor plans. Studios, as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom condominium residences are available from the mid $200,000s. Over 350 one-of-a-kind floor plans, including duplexes and triplexes, are available to fit an array of lifestyle needs.
Many of the homes at Dixon Mills feature oversized windows and ceilings that range in height from nine feet to 12 feet; stylish gourmet kitchens outfitted with G.E. Profile stainless steel appliances and granite countertops; and luxurious bathrooms with Carrara tile floors, beautiful marble vanities, pedestal sinks and sleek finishes. Private outdoor patios with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty are available with select homes.
In addition to comprehensive upgrades in the residences themselves, extensive renovations and upgrades are now underway on the community’s courtyards, and work is progressing rapidly on the community’s lobbies and common area spaces. Most recently, the developers completed a sun deck in the community’s Landmark building courtyard.
The community recently submitted plans to start the construction of the Club at Dixon Mills, a comprehensive onsite amenities facility that will be housed in the community’s Powerhouse building, featuring a large fitness center, locker rooms, yoga/movement room, community lounge, media area indoor multi-purpose recreational court and a plug-and-play area for laptop computers.
