Spring is finally here. At Suncadia, that means different things to different people. For many —kids especially—it means that most delicious of Suncadia seasons (summer, obviously) is just around the corner. In the meantime, it’s time to dust off the bikes, the fishing poles, and—for many members of our community—the golf clubs.

Suncadia’s three unique and distinctive championship golf courses span the Resort’s 6,400 acres of pine and fir forest, lakes, ponds, and the Cle Elum River. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of teeing up at Suncadia, here’s what you can expect:

New York has the Hamptons. Los Angeles has Malibu. Seattleites looking to get away for a relaxing — or glamorous — weekend (or year) need look no further than Suncadia, oft-touted as Seattle’s “backyard escape.”

That said, Suncadia is probably unlike any backyard you’ve ever experienced. And during a famously cold, wet Pacific Northwest winter (or autumn or spring), the little enclave situated on the sunny eastern ridge of the Cascades is just what your rain-drenched soul needs. By stopping by the 3rd annual real estate expo at Suncadia on Saturday, you’ll be able to see firsthand why so many Seattleites are flocking to the scenic village.

Miner’s Camp & Talisman…Sold, Sold, Sold!

Homes at Miner’s Camp and Talisman have been some of the most sought-after residences in the entire Suncadia community.

All of Miner’s Camp seven developed properties sold before completion, and Talisman is on the verge of selling out its first phase. But it’s not too late; phase two of both developments is expected to start this summer.

Richard Seay, Vice President of Suncadia, provides some insight into why these homes are selling so quickly.

Richard Seay is vice president and director of sales and marketing for the large – and growing – Suncadia resort. He was surprised by how many young people are buying homes in the Cle Elum development.

Richard Seay has worked on 43 master-planned and resort community developments. His latest project is the 6,400-acre Suncadia resort in Kittitas County.

He’s struck by who’s buying homes there: mostly young professional, some with kids.

“The money in Seattle is young. This is the youngest buyer I’ve ever dealt with,” said Seay, who moved his family from St. Martin in the Caribbean to Suncadia in 2013.
