For the first week in three, there’s no change in the number of properties listed on the Multiple Listing Service. It has 75 residences for sale, same number last week. And while that may seem like a lot – it is the highest I’ve ever seen – it’s not hugely different from roughly this time last year, when there were about 68 homes on the market. We’ll keep watching.
DPNR approval of zoning for Grande Bay, and a lawsuit from neighbors, have renewed interest in that development. Grande Bay’s developers have begun to build a Web site at http://188.8.131.52/. So far it is woefully inadequate in updating contracted-buyers and the public know what’s going on. For instance, this posting. The site has empty pages, like this on vacation rental information. It does say, "Opening Summer 2006". Give the Web site time, it’ll get better. I’m sure the units will
be beautiful … if and when.
The MLS is also showing 191 lots for sale (up from 189 last week,) 21 condos (from 19), and 14 commercial properties.
