Gig Harbor, Washington , April 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ:HCDI), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement for the acquisition of approximately 1.85 acres of land in Tacoma, Washington for $2,000,000. The purchase is expected to close on or before May 22, 2021.
Located less than ten minutes to downtown Tacoma’s urban core job market, the 80 condominiums will cater to first-time home buyers searching for affordable options in the robust Tacoma area housing market. Harbor anticipates the 1 and 2 Bedroom units will be priced between $300,000 and $400,000 and fill a significant need in the local marketplace. Tacoma has been one of the strongest housing markets in the nation over the past two years and, in January 2021, as reported by Redfin, was the fastest selling market in the country. (Redfin puts Tacoma No. 1 for fastest selling housing market | Tacoma News Tribune (thenewstribune.com).)
Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor, stated, “Tacoma represents an ideal location for Harbor Custom Homes® to increase our Western Washington footprint and address the significant need for affordable housing in Tacoma. As home prices continue to escalate due to record low inventory levels, first-time homebuyers are often priced out of the market. We are directly addressing this fundamental gap in the marketplace and believe offering condominiums priced below $400,000 in Tacoma creates an excellent growth opportunity for the Company while providing a highly desirous product for first-time homebuyers.”
