Local Business Owner Makes Englewood a Home at The M at Englewood South
ENGLEWOOD, NJ – Since opening a private acupuncture practice in downtown Englewood, Une-Hi Song has become completely involved in the local community and developed great admiration for its quaint, small-town environment. Ms. Song, who had been living in Fort Lee, moved to the popular Bergen County Borough just over a year ago to be closer to her business, as well as the many Englewood conveniences and services she enjoyed. After initially living in a rental home at The Sheffield for a year, Ms. Song knew Englewood was the place she wanted to call home for a long time to come and set about establishing more permanent roots.
“I loved living in Englewood so much and I didn’t see myself going far anytime soon,” says Ms. Song, who, along with her brother, runs Song Acupower (www.songacupower.com) at 280 Grand Street. “This town has been so great and we’ve been so blessed with success and growth for our company that we’re now planning future expansion. Therefore, it made perfect sense to invest in a home in Englewood that would allow me to have a monthly mortgage almost equivalent to what I was paying in rent and I was ready to take that next big step.”
As a young, single-professional, Ms. Song set her sights on a condominium or townhome residence in a pet-friendly community. She specifically wanted a new construction home in a low-maintenance environment that was move-in ready and provided indoor parking and five-star amenities.
“These requirements narrowed my search quite a bit,” she says. “I visited Windsor Park Court condos which were relatively new construction having been built within the past ten years or so. Then, my friends, family and other local business owners suggested I visit The M at Englewood South which was right next door to where I was living.”
Ms. Song’s search would end just steps from her Sheffield rental home at The M at Englewood South, which offers modern one- and two-bedroom condominium homes.
“I felt that The M had so many more advantages over Windsor Park Court,” Ms. Song recalls. “There was no comparison to The M in terms of brand new construction, modern decor and new stainless steel appliances, in addition to having a swimming pool.”
What’s more, The M’s premier location would also allow Ms. Song to stay minutes from the businesses, services and restaurants that had initially made Englewood so attractive to her.
“First and foremost, it was very appealing that The M is so close to where I work and my gym, The Gym,” she says. “Another huge perk is the commutability to major highways and just being so close to so many wonderful shops and restaurants not only in town, but just a hop, skip and jump onto Route 4 and the Shops/Restaurants at Riverside Square Mall.
“I was also instantly attracted to the homes at The M which offered everything from high ceilings, big windows, beautiful layouts with nice finishes and the ability to choose between my preference for granite counter tops. Another huge perk was in home laundry, full washer/dryers in every unit!”
While the location and upscale homes certainly were driving factors in Ms. Song’s decision to purchase at The M, the world-class recreational and social amenities also played a huge role.
“I was impressed by the beautiful community room they offer,” notes Ms. Song. “It was very spacious, with a kitchen area, lounge, large flat screen TV with elegant decor and finishes and is available for tenants to rent by the day for large private parties.”
Ms. Song is representative of the type of homebuyer The M at Englewood South appeals to. Luxurious condominium designs attractively priced from just $298,000 has enabled many young couples and single-professionals to purchase their first home at the community. These buyers -- who are increasingly focused on receiving the most bang for their hard-earned buck --are discovering special buyer incentives now available at The M provide a level of value that is not often found in today’s demanding real estate market. For a limited time, homebuyers can receive $7,500 off one-bedroom homes and $15,000 off two-bedroom condominiums at the lively community.
“Today’s buyer wants to be confident in their purchase and ensured they are receiving a high amount of value in their new home,” says Ron Orgel, a representative of Flatrock 3, LLC, sponsor of The M at Englewood South. “At The M, we’re able to offer brand new condominiums with expansive floorplans and upscale finishes and appointments at competitive prices that are well within the budget of first-time buyers. Combined with the special incentives and the 90% finance package now available, it’s a compelling opportunity that has clearly gained traction with purchasers.”
The large number of young homebuyers has created a living environment at The M where residents regularly gather for social events or to enjoy one of the community’s world-class recreational amenities.
Homeowners are now gearing up for the highly-anticipated debut of the community’s outdoor pool this Memorial Day. Additional on-site recreational amenities that bolster the desirable lifestyle at The M include a resident’s clubroom with 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.
“The M is an exciting new residential community that offers style, convenience and so much more,” adds Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, exclusive sales and marketing agent at The M. “It’s a complete lifestyle package that’s very attractive to today’s buyers.”
