Gig Harbor, Washington , Oct. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCDI, HCDIP, HCDIW, HCDIZ) ("Harbor," "Harbor Custom Homes®," or the "Company"), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has closed on the purchase of a 4.31 acre property permitted for the construction of 75 condominium units in Yelm, Washington for $3,325,000.
Yelm is ideally located 22 miles from Washington State's capital of Olympia to the south and 32 miles north to the downtown Tacoma job market. Yelm offers easy access to several outdoor recreational opportunities such as the Yelm Tenino trail (https://www.experienceolympia.com/listing/yelm-tenino-trail/592/). Harbor anticipates the one-, two- and three-bedroom units will be priced starting in the low $300,000s and fill a significant need in the local marketplace.
Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor, stated "Offering condominiums starting in the low $300,000s provides us the opportunity to cater to first time homebuyers who have been largely neglected in the new construction marketplace. As home values and rental rates continue to escalate at unprecedented levels, we believe the pent-up demand for affordable housing provides a significant opportunity for our company."
