Savannah, GA (April 1, 2014) – The Landings Company, the real estate arm of The Landings  on Savannah’s Skidaway Island, reports first quarter home and lot contracts at 72 compared to 48 over the same period last year – a 47% increase.  Even more impressive, the total value of these contracts was $33.3 million for 2014 compared to $20.5 million in 2013 – a 62% increase.

Home sales activity in the $350,000 to $600,000 price range has been very, very brisk.  In fact, fewer and fewer homes are available at The Landings in this price range which adds to the urgency of those buyers looking for homes in this price category.

Indications for sales growth in the next few months are excellent. The number of sales guests who have already visited The Landings in 2014 or have confirmed visits for the next few months exceeds 230 – well ahead of prior years.  “We are increasingly optimistic that this traffic will bring in even more sales in the coming months” says Raoul Rushin, President of The Landings Company.

Buyers have indicated that the natural beauty of the setting, the diversity of housing options, the array of community amenities, and the proximity of the city of Savannah set The Landings apart from other communities they considered. In addition, buyers stated that the opportunity to experience the lifestyle first hand by visiting on a Discovery Package offered by The Landings Company,  helped seal their decision to call The Landings home.
