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. As soon as a property in one of these neighborhoods goes on the market, it sells almost instantly. 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.

Why do you think the Talisman and Miner’s Camp homes have sold 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.

Seattle’s booming economy was beginning to fuel a comeback at Suncadia. The resort had a record year last year with 160 homes sold, a 21 percent

Suncadia Trailhead Townhomes by Swiftwater Custom HomesIf location is everything, Trailhead Townhomes has an advantage right out of the gate. The highly anticipated townhomes are ideally located at the heart of Suncadia's Village core, an easy stroll from the community's bounty of activities and amenities. And Trailhead owners will have even more amenities to enjoy; the community has a private, just-for-residents pool, Jacuzzi, firepit and barbecue area.

So what else does Trailhead have going for it? A lot, according to builder Jeff Hansell of Swiftwater Custom Homes.

Hansell says he and his team were drawn to the opportunity to develop a project with the perfect combination of living space, bedrooms and bathrooms – for a relatively affordable price.

"Typically, we focus on luxury residences,

Those looking to the great outdoors to"get away from it all" had better act fast: one mountain resort town in Washington had a record-setting 2016 when it came to real estate and resort sales.

In 2016, Suncadia saw a 26 percent increase in real estate sales volume from 2015, according to a release from the resort. The resort also saw a jump in bookings, with 3,000 more guest room nights booked in 2016 than 2015. The planned community is about 80 miles east of Seattle and features more than 40 miles of hiking trails, a golf course, a winery and a 4-star-rated mountain lodge.

Talisman Village Home Render - Suncadia Real estateThat J.R. Staedler Construction's new development of townhomes and single family residences has 'village' in its name is no accident. The new community was designed to evoke bygone days when people actually knew the people in their communities. "These days, people don't know their neighbors. We want to change that," says Dave Gintz of J.R. Staedler.

The doors of Talisman Village homes open onto a pedestrian-friendly common area with the feel of a shared yard or a village square. With no danger from passing cars – Talisman will forgo driveways for centralized parking – parents will be able to leave their kids to play outside, worry-free.

The village concept will inevitably turn neighbors into friends. And of course, these residents will be part of

Osprey Ridge New Construction HomeWhat else makes this particular Osprey Ridge home so compelling? Craig Reimer was kind enough to share some of the home’s more unique details.

CLE ELUM — The goal was to have fun. Consider the mission accomplished.

Despite a temperature that hovered somewhere under 20 degrees, by the time the 2017 Dummy Downhill event at Suncadia resort was finished on Sunday, a crowd of 300-plus had found plenty to laugh and cheer about.

The event, held annually when the weather cooperates and there’s snow on the ground, features downhill competition between “dummies” mounted on skis or snowboards.

Entries have be at least 3 feet high, no taller than 6 feet and at least 3 feet wide at the base. Entries are pushed one-by-one out of a starting gate at the top of the hill, go down the hill and off of a ramp that leaves most of them in some degree of destruction.

Per tradition, this year’s event was
