The fully renovated home was under contract within five days of being listed.

A fully renovated, custom designer home that recently sold, went under contract for over asking after only five days of being listed on the market. Listed by the team at The JC Luxury Group at eXp Realty, the Orient Avenue home in the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood sold for $705,000 after initially being listed for $699,000.

Alexander Calle attributes this successful sale to the team’s ability to create a product they knew buyers wanted, and felt the neighborhood needed. Their full-service approach for developer clients also helped highlight the property’s potential to buyers.

When asked about the sale at 97 Orient Ave, Alexander commented, “We recently sold a property for over asking in Jersey City with the sale of this designer custom home. Speaking candidly, no one was daring enough to create a product that pushed the status quo in the 07305 neighborhood… until now.”

The main floor is open concept.

The team not only sourced the deal but also designed and staged the property – utilizing the talent of Jared Reamer, head of design and staging at The JC Luxury Group – to sell the property over the asking price. Part of The JC Luxury Group’s ethos is they don’t just help developer clients flip or build homes, they help their clients build neighborhoods.

The home brought a new level of quality construction to its neighborhood. The three stories of the home are connected by a custom oak staircase with modern railings and a skylight. The main living-dining area is open concept and situated on the first floor, featuring high ceilings, recessed lighting, and oversized windows that flood the floor with natural light.

The custom kitchen is outfitted with a large center island that doubles as a breakfast bar, double-waterfall Quartz counters, linen thin-frame shaker cabinets, open shelving, and stainless-steel appliances. A floor-to-ceiling pantry provides ample storage. The floor’s powder room – with brass fittings and wood touches – is an additional convenience when hosting guests, as is the generous-sized coat closet.
