The timing was perfect for newlyweds Mr. Prashant Kher and Dr. Geet Kher. After renting in midtown Manhattan and Long Island City for the past six years, they wanted to begin their new life together by achieving the dream of homeownership.
“We were tired of paying New York City rent,” Mr. Kher says. “My wife and I got married in June 2016, and she finished her dental residency at the end of June 2017. We wanted to begin the ownership process.”
The couple cast a wide net in their home search, exhaustively touring condominium and townhome buildings throughout Long Island, Westchester County, Stamford, Ct., and Hudson and Bergen Counties. While conducting online research on homes in these areas, they discovered The M at Englewood South. The Bergen County neighborhood would quickly prove to offer everything they were looking for in a first home. Prashant and Geet would celebrate one year of wedding bliss with a brand new condominium at The M at Englewood South.
“The M at Englewood South had a great balance of modern homes, commuter-friendly location, well-kept grounds and attractive pricing,” Prashant points out. “Everything here has a nice and new feel to it. We purchased a two-bedroom condominium and were the first owners of our home. We love its spacious and functional layout with bathrooms in each bedroom and its luxury finishes, including granite countertops and hardwood floors.”
Location also played a key role in the couple’s decision to purchase at The M at Englewood South. Lying just off Route 4, the upscale neighborhood provides quick access to Manhattan, downtown Englewood, and the shopping and services of Bergen County.
“We are incredibly close to New York City, and the shuttle bus to the New Jersey Transit bus station makes for an easy commute,” Mr. Kher continues. “We’re just a 10-minute drive to malls and shopping and close to Interstate 95, which allows me to quickly commute to my parents in central New Jersey. We’re also avid travelers and the ability to reach Newark Airport in 30 minutes is a definite advantage.”
The popularity of The M at Englewood South with young couples such as Prashant and Geet has led to nearly 80% of its luxury condominiums sold. Priced from the mid-$400,000s, condominiums at the community feature open living spaces, 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. A parking space in The M’s enclosed parking garage is included in the purchase price.
Homes are being offered with creative financing that provides a special 3% downpayment, meaning a well-appointed condominium can be purchased with an initial deposit as low as $13,000. There’s also a limited-time incentive that offers up to $20,000 off the price of a two-bedroom condominium.
The enviable and vibrant lifestyle at The M at Englewood South is created by popular recreational and social amenities, centered on an outdoor pool and sundeck.
