''We've already sold 14, and we're very pleased,'' said Steve Holt, of Howard Holt Hanna Real Estate, who is serving as project coordinator. ''They just put the foundation for the buildings in yesterday, so I'm very happy. They've sold faster than my expectations.''
As with many businesses in the area, the summer tourism season always plays a factor, and Holt feels his condos are no exception.
''The tourism here has definitely helped,'' Holt said. He originally predicted a half-and-half split in terms of buyers whether they are local or vacationers but so far two-thirds have been bought by out of town residents. ''I still think there will be more local purchases as well in the end.''
Those interested should act quickly, because according to Holt, pre-construction pricing ends today.
''We've been offering discounts so far, because up until this point we hadn't really built anything, but at that point the discount will end,'' Holt said.
The 40 condominium units are selling for between $370,000 and $595,000, with unit coming with a patio area as well as a private dock. A garage is also designated for each condo offering one covered and one open parking space.
