Being a homeowner at The Whittaker is about more than just loving your brand new condominium — it’s about loving the area you live in.

Fortunately for our homeowners, there’s a ton of wonderful attractions in their own backyard, and when your mortgages are as low as ours, you have more than enough to splurge on some holiday fun.

Union Square Holiday Market

New York City is special all year round but at the holidays there’s an extra bit of magic. Tour the Union Square Holiday Market and take in all the splendor of a traditional market filled with hand-made crafts.

Check out Union Square Holiday Market thru Dec. 24th & get free shuttle service near the event when you #RideTheFerry! See how: http://bit.ly/2qn2OJm

Whether you stop by a vendor to pick up something for yourself or a friend or just spend the day walking around, venturing through the stalls and the smell of hot chocolate is certain to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

Sure, New York City gets crowded around the holidays and fortunately, if the last thing you want to do is fight for parking, when you live at The Whittaker, all you have to do is walk down the street and catch the train. Thanks to NJ Transit, you’ll be in the city in no time!

Stop by a store or take in a piping hot cup of soup at one of the restaurants — no matter where you find yourself, you’ll find yourself overwhelmed with festivities.

You can also wander through Peddler’s Village, which has been transformed into a winter wonderland. It’s completely free to visit and after touring the gingerbread house exhibit and popping in and out of the stores, all it could cost you is a cup of hot chocolate to keep you warm.

Shady Brook Farm Light Show

At the Shady Brook Farm Light Show, every stop has been pulled. Open nightly from November 18 to January 7, there are over three million lights paving the way through acres and acres of farmland.

The exciting performance features a great mix of familiar faces and some more creative displays and takes you on a two-mile journey filled with holiday cheer. You can enjoy it in your own car or take it in from the added magic of an open-air air wagon.

Yes, Virginia, we DO plan on being open for the Light Show tonight!As long as there's not a blizzard and the roads are…

Admission is only $30 per car (not per person), so grab some friends and family, pack them into the car, and keep your eyes peeled because the show is certainly something to behold!  We’ve experienced it and it’s AWESOME!! You won’t want to miss the adventure!

When you become the owner of a BRAND NEW condominium at The Whittaker, all of these great activities are within your reach. With homes starting at only $1,010/month, many of our homeowners are actually paying less to own than rent.

And, we have zero down 100% mortgages (30 year fixed) for qualified buyers.  And, don’t forget the tax abatement and NJ Energy Star built and certified for lower monthly utilities for the life of your home.

We’re already over 60% sold out so contact us TODAY (with two more new closings this month) and learn how you too can spend this winter in a warm, cozy, exciting home you own.

Ever since Punxsutawney Phil declared six more weeks of winter it’s just been more of the same old routines. Wake up, bundle up, face the cold hair, come home and snuggle on the couch with a blanket. That’s fine for when you want to unwind after a long day of work but the weekends are meant for fun! It’s time to break away from our boring routines and take a cue from the warm weather heading our way (high 40’s woohoo!) and get out of the house for a night of good laughs with great friends. When you’re living at The Whittaker you’ve got so much to do right in your neighborhood that it can be tough to choose which is why we always like to make our recommendations. On March 13th head over to Rat’s Restaurant in Hamilton, NJ and check out Helen Angley, a local comic, as she returns for another night of stand-up! The show starts at 8:30 PM and tickets are $25 if purchased by March 6th and $30 if purchased at the door. But that’s not all – no it isn’t, because at The Whittaker the deals are always a little bit sweeter. If you dine at Rat’s Restaurant before the show, a Stephen Starr restaurant, you get 20% of the food portion of your dinner! That means you can have a dinner for two, complete with your own appetizer and entree, for $40!  The best part about it? It’s only 10 minutes from The Whittaker!


So what’s the hold-up? Check out The Whittaker in Trenton, NJ today and learn about how you can really have it all and your own, brand new home! Call or email Claribel Santiago and set up your appointment today! 609-695-3300 whittakersales@lrgnj.com

Life is full of tough choices; salad or cheeseburger, grande or venti, hot or cold? One choice that shouldn’t be tough is whether to rent or buy. The choice is an easy one because the facts are in and it’s time to break free from the monthly visits from your landlord and start investing in your future, now. A recent article from The New York Times stated that the average cost of home ownership is 38% less than the cost of renting which is even higher than last year when the gap was only 35%, data that was put out by Trulia. Now I know what you’re thinking, “It may be a good time to buy but I don’t even know where to look.” Well, my friend, you’ve come to the right place.
