The Porches to wrap up construction of new units
The Porches announced today that it continues to buck the trend in the luxury second home market in Steamboat Springs by maintaining strong sales activity throughout 2010.
Enjoying a 10 percent increase in walk-in traffic year over year and strong interest from a multitude of second-home buyers across the country, The Porches has made five sales; two fractional interests in the Private Residence Club and two whole ownership units, as well as the resale of their largest home at $3.49 million. This level of activity is unparalleled in the current luxury vacation home market in Steamboat.
“We believe that our sales success this year is thanks to a combination of our unique product offering and the slow resurgence of the luxury second home market,” said Bruce Shugart, developer of The Porches.
The Porches will wrap up the construction of a few new units this month. One of the new homes offers views from every room, an expanded deck, an elevator and more than 500 square feet of storage.
