Gig Harbor, Washington , Sept. 18, 2020 — Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (“Harbor” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ: HCDI), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced it has entered into a fully executed Purchase and Sale Agreement to acquire property currently under development for the construction of 36 townhomes located in East Bremerton, Washington. The purchase price for the acquisition will be $1.5M and closing is expected to take place on or before March 1, 2021.
The Bremerton property, known as Mill’s Crossing, is earmarked by Harbor for the construction of contemporary designed, two-bedroom townhomes. The property is located in the heart of Bremerton, one block from the new Kitsap Transit Center, and less than ten minutes to the Bremerton shipyards, Naval Base at Kitsap, and the Seattle Ferry. Mill’s Crossing will be Harbor’s initial entry into the more affordable starter home market with pricing targeted at less than $400,000.
“We have been searching for the right opportunity to expand our product offering and enter the townhome market,” stated Sterling Griffin, CEO and President of Harbor. “We recognize the significant demand of first-time home buyers, particularly in this location that provides easy access to schools, shopping, and accessibility to the downtown Seattle job market. Mill’s Crossing checked all the boxes that we feel are appealing to individuals and families that are soon to own their first home. We are excited to close on this property and look forward to being able to offer Harbor Custom Homes™ to a broader spectrum of potential buyers.”
