Suncadia Continues to See Increased Home Sales Year After Year
Suncadia, Washington state’s four season mountain resort community located 80 miles east of Seattle, ended 2015 with more than $55 million in closed real estate sales.
“Suncadia saw more than 40% of all 2015 sales result from a referral of a friend, family member or business associate by current owners. It is a strong testament to the commitment of our owners,” said Richard Seay, vice president, director of sales and marketing for Suncadia.
“There is a strong community of homeowners here at Suncadia who enjoy just getting away to relax for the weekend, or spending a few weeks at a time to immerse themselves in our mountain retreat culture.”
Since January 2015, Suncadia had 133 real estate transactions for homes, homesites and condominiums ranging in price from $80,000 to $3 million. Sixty-nine homesites, 46 custom homes and 18 condominiums were sold with the average price increasing by nearly 30% from 2014. Suncadia’s median home price is $810,000, compared to the King County’s median price of approximately $448,600 for a single-family home.
“Suncadia has found that their second home market is a direct reflection of the strength of the primary home market in the Puget Sound area,” said Seay. “With the region’s significant growth in the real estate market over the past few years, Suncadia’s housing market is thriving.”
