Gig Harbor, Washington , Jan. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ:HCDI), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has acquired seven developed lots in Dripping Springs, Texas; contracted to purchase nine additional finished lots in Driftwood, Texas; and contracted to purchase 44 acres for future development, all totaling $9,469,350 in the coveted Hill Country region approximately 22 miles West of Austin, Texas.
Harbor Custom Homes® anticipates commencing construction of four and five bedroom homes priced from $950,000 to $1,200,000 in the Bunker Ranch and La Ventana subdivisions located in Dripping Springs and Driftwood, Texas in the second quarter of 2021. Dripping Springs and Driftwood, Texas have experienced significant growth as a result of Austin’s rapidly growing employment base and the subsequent migration of households to the Hill Country.
“We are thrilled to establish a presence in the thriving Austin Metro marketplace. This will be our second regional expansion coinciding with our simultaneous entrance into the Sacramento, California Metro market. Urban flight driven by the pandemic has created unique pockets of opportunity in areas of the country that have similar employment and household demographics to Austin, Sacramento, and our principal market of Seattle. We believe acquisition of land in these targeted Metro Markets, coupled with a proprietary partnership structure with local builders and developers, provides a unique business opportunity for rapid national expansion,” stated Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor Custom Homes.
