ROSLYN, WA--(Marketwired - February 11, 2014) - Suncadia, a year-round resort located 80 miles east of Seattle, sold more than $44 million in real estate in 2013, representing its best year since 2008. Since properties became available in 2003, more than 1,420 homesites, custom homes and condominiums have been purchased, with 155 of those sales taking place in 2013.
"Based on recent real estate trends in our market and the momentum of our economy, Suncadia is excited about this past year's success and optimistic about continuing our trend of increased growth into 2014," said Richard Seay, vice president, director of sales and marketing for Suncadia.
Construction of 57 homes began in 2013, compared to the 36 starts in 2012. Prospector's Reach, a neighborhood of cottages near the core of Suncadia, saw the new construction of 14 homes by Bella Villa Resort Homes, Element Residential LLC, and Craig Reimer Custom Homes. Steve Burnstead Construction LLC.'s neighborhood, Black Nugget, saw 12 home sales in 2013. Burnstead is in their third and final phase of construction for the Black Nugget neighborhood, which will consist of 37 homes when completed.
A Featured Builder Program was introduced in late 2013, enabling buyers to move into their dream home in a fraction of the time. Builders work with Suncadia to identify key high-end features, such as outdoor living areas with fire pits, bunk rooms, and detailed wood working, leaving only a few finishing touches for the buyer to have to decide upon.
"We feel very strongly that the community of Suncadia, with its array of amenities, seasonal activities and convenient location, will continue to be attractive to second home buyers within the Pacific Northwest Region," said Roger Beck, managing director of Suncadia.
