Greenbrier Sporting Club Shows Strong Sales So Far in 2010

As of Labor Day weekend The Greenbrier Sporting Club has written 25 contracts worth approximately $20 million since the beginning of 2010. While the new casino and The Greenbrier Classic pulled in big numbers of guests and created a lot of enthusiasm for the resort, the market here continued to be one where buyers could find incredible value.

“I feel confident in saying that we sold more high end real estate than any other community in America in 2010,” says John Klemish, Adviser to the President and Broker in Charge. “ When considering the amenities, history, location, proximity to major U.S. cities, new flights into Lewisburg and the deep pockets of the developer, we have no peer in America. To live at The Greenbrier is to live in the lap of luxury.”

Good things continue across the horizon for The Greenbrier and The Greenbrier Sporting Club; with interest rates still at historic lows and real estate prices at 2002 levels, the market continues to be advantageous for buyers. If you’re thinking of buying property at America’s Resort, NOW is the time to buy.

Never a Better Time

All amenities are open. More are being built. The Casino Club at The Greenbrier opens next month. The Greenbrier Classic, the newest professional golf event, is coming in July. Home prices are more attractive than ever. Daily flights from New York and Atlanta have arrived. And still we could go on and on about even more exciting developments taking shape at America’s Resort, The Greenbrier.

You know all about The Greenbrier. But, did you know that buying real estate at our 6,500 acre resort property offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of history as The Greenbrier pivots into a new era of luxury hospitality, one steeped in more than 230 years of entertaining presidents and royalty?

Since last year, 35 real estate deals have closed. January 2010 saw an all-time record, since the Sporting Club’s inception, for that month in real estate purchases.

Just last week a report from Housing Watch noted that industry experts are forecasting mortgage rates could fall to 4.5 percent over the next few months, providing historic opportunities for which many buyers have been waiting.

With all of this happening, and all that is about to happen, the proverbial train is pulling out of the station, full of steam and ready to push forward into a new era of living at The Greenbrier. As you know, the best options go first, and the worst go last, so if you have ever flirted with the idea of owning real estate at The Greenbrier, the sense of urgency will never be higher than the upcoming summer months.

We hope to see you soon, and encourage you to contact us today to schedule a real estate tour tailored to your own needs, so that you can take the first step in creating your own legacy, one that will last for generations to come.

Rates for Homebuyers at Historic Lows

Earlier this week, American home buyers received some great news – nearly 50-year lows for domestic mortgage rates. Mortgage news like this only reiterates our point that “There has never been a better time to buy at The Greenbrier.”

To that end, The Greenbrier Sporting Club has partnered with banks and financial institutions that can provide great financing opportunities for those looking to purchase a home or homesite. In addition to conventional loans and ARMs, our relationships with these institutions develop opportunities for “creative financing,” where customers can finance up to 100% of their customized loan through their current assets.

“My Team and I meet with bankers nearly every week,” says Broker in Charge John Klemish. “We discuss rates and loan packages and the bank’s desire to loan money to our buyers. Because of the pedigree of The Greenbrier, borrowing money for real estate purchases is made easy.”

The Wall Street Journal reported on May 24 that “many in the industry now say rates could drift as low a 4.5 percent this summer…making for significantly lower payments for Americans buying homes.” Couple that good news with The Greenbrier’s new gaming and entertainment complex and The Greenbrier Classic, and you have what we would call a hat trick for any new home buyer.

Sales Success Featured In Daily Mail

The front page of this morning’s Daily Mail featured The Greenbrier Sporting Club’s spectacular January sales record. With insight from Principal and Broker-in-Charge John Klemish, the article touched on many aspects of why people are buying here at The Sporting Club.

Builder’s Showcase of Homes Tour Was Inspiring

Although some time has passed since the May 8-10 Builder’s Showcase of Homes Tour. We wanted to share with you some moments from that weekend.

Each builder enjoyed seeing all of you that were able to come by for a tour! Tour goers enjoyed seeing some homes that are privately owned and some that are listed for sale…as well as some homes that are nearing completion, providing a chance to see a “work in progress” from our master crafstmen.

We certainly hope those of you that joined us were left inspired with ideas for designing your next dream home and hope to see you soon around the club for more great events like this in the future! Till then we leave you with a few photos taken throughout that special weekend of some of our builders.
