Summit Place in Summit, NJ, is 70 Percent Sold Prior to Opening-Half Sells in Seven Days

Prior to opening, Summit Place in the heart of downtown Summit, NJ, is already 70 percent sold. Half of the condominium residences sold in only seven days.

Summit, NJ, September 16, 2011 --( Seven days – that’s how long it took to sell half of the residences at the soon to open Summit Place in the heart of downtown Summit, NJ. They sold with nothing more than concepts and a footprint of a building underway. Currently, only eight of the 25 residences remain for sale with prices ranging from $571,900 for a one-bedroom with den to $929,000 for a two-bedroom with terrace. Many units have sold with prices approaching $1.2 million in a town renowned for its estate homes, quiet tree lined streets, boutique shopping, elegant dining and an easy commute into NYC via the midtown direct train line. The first buyers are scheduled to move in this December.

According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, the success of this collection of luxurious one level condominiums lies in the way the firm and award winning builders at Mark Built Homes created Summit Place. “Most builders are building homes based on what they feel buyers would like,” explains Vice President of Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums David Schoner. “We took a totally different approach prior to building Summit Place. We conducted consumer research and collected a wealth of information from potential buyers, trying to understand their desires for the most important features they wanted in a new home. The team at Mark Built really listened and Summit Place was based around those fine details and features that consumers suggested. The result – nearly all of the earliest prospects purchased a unit and some even referred family and friends to buy here.”

Sales Director Randall “Randy” Hix of Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums adds, “We also had tremendous interest from the Realtor community and area residents who wanted to know when the collection would open. Once the sign and banners went up, calls and appointments have been non-stop.”

With up to 2,300 square feet of space, the residences at Summit Place have been specially designed for the buyer who is ready to move from the larger estate home into a maintenance free environment without giving up any of the luxuries. According to Mark Built Homes President Michael Markovitz, “We truly listened to what buyers wanted in a home of this caliber and incorporated those ideas into an open and inviting floor plan. Each home offers a spacious living and dining area and a gourmet style kitchen, perfect for entertaining on any level. Many residences feature a terrace or balcony. Even the common grand entry, lobby, and hallways have been crafted to reflect the fine details found in each home.”

Markovitz further explains he and his staff worked with the award winning interior designer Lita Dirks of Denver, CO, to create select interior design packages to suit unique lifestyle needs. “Everything is included. Our buyers and their interior designers love the fact that we have gone through great efforts to select the finest tile, cabinetry, and lighting for design packages that really speak to the customers’ taste and style. In the kitchens for example, buyers can create the warm feeling of a traditional space with raised panel cherry cabinetry, granite and stainless appliances or a more sleek and elegant feel of a modern kitchen with light paneling and quartz countertops. There is even a transitional version which offers a touch of both motifs. Buyers choose a hardwood flooring stain to finish the residence interior design in their own personal style.”

The bedroom suites are spacious and comfortable with walk-in closets and lavish baths with marble or limestone floors, oversized showers replete with invigorating body sprays, and dual wood vanities with stone or quartz countertops. A bubble massage tub is available in select residences.

Other luxury features include 10-foot and soffit ceilings; decorative crown molding; hardwood floors with herringbone inlay in the foyer; Kohler fixtures; KitchenAid Architect Series appliances; Pella windows; Whirlpool Duet front loading washer and dryer; and stylish lighting including mood-setting rope lighting in the foyer and master bedroom.

Hix points out that a video doorman provides 24 hour, seven day a week monitoring and visitor and delivery management. “A state-of-the-art security system monitors all public areas of the building,” explains Hix. “And each residence features an individual security alarm system.”

Each home also includes two designated parking spaces in a covered garage with elevator service to all levels.
