Winter 2014 Real Estate News

REArticle_newlsetter

2013 was another exciting year. Last year brought excellent growth to our community, including 30 real estate transactions (11% increase from 2012) with a total sales volume just over $26 million. The average home price was $1,453,692 and the average homesite was $437,911. Part of this growth can be contributed to three developer-owned model homes built in our Greenbrier Summit Village neighborhood located 3,300 feet atop Greenbrier Mountain.

These three homes, Greenbrier Summit Village 19, 46, and 48 were designed by E.L. Roach Architects and built by The Pinnacle Group, Inc. and are each stunning examples of living at the pinnacle of luxury (no pun intended). John Klemish, Advisor to the President and Broker-in-Charge, states that, “I receive calls from other communities and developers all the time asking me how we do it and why The Greenbrier Sporting Club is so ‘hot.’ I tell them to come take a look as seeing is believing. Once here they all believe. Heck one was so impressed after his tour that he and his wife even bought a house. Now that’s a testimonial! I am already in the planning stages to start three more model houses in the spring of 2014. The future is now and the place is The Greenbrier.”

The Greenbrier Sporting Club already has five real estate transactions on the books for 2014 and despite the bouts of cold weather that Mother Nature has dealt the east coast, we are pleased to see guests taking advantage of The Greenbrier’s Discovery Series themed weekends to experience this lifestyle during our shoulder season.
