Give or take a few, agents sold a home every three days to kick off the selling effort at an upper Mount Pleasant planned community.
Carolina Park residential village disclosed its 100th new-home sale late last month. According to backers, the fast sales pace exceeds expectations and shows no signs of letting up.
“We’ve been extremely pleased with the sales pace and are excited to offer an even wider selection of options in the coming year,” says Brian Keels, marketing director at Carolina Park.
The selling team showed confidence “that buyers looking for a new home in Mount Pleasant would respond favorably to what we’re doing here – the quality, value, convenience and amenities,” Keels says. “But I don’t think any of us could have predicted this kind of response and demand,” he notes.
Spread out over 1,700 acres, Carolina Park describes itself as a “family oriented mixed-use residential and commercial community” situated along U.S. Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant. The property takes in Wando High School and Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital. As planned, Carolina Park will be home to more than 1,700 families, developers say.
“Things started fast and the momentum has continued to grow,” said Haley Cuzzell, community sales manager.
“In less than a year, 100 families have made the decision to call Carolina Park home,” she says. “That’s a great sign for the development.”
Six top homebuilders currently construct houses in Carolina Park. New-home prices start in the $300,000s and custom homes in Riverside at Carolina Park begin in the $500,000s.
“People are talking about Carolina Park and homes are selling quickly, she says. “Interest rates are low and prices are increasing as demand grows and inventory becomes limited.”
The newly opened Riverside neighborhood, home to custom dwellings on larger private lots, has logged 16 sales under contract. A handful of homes started construction recently, she says.
Carolina Park, located minutes from local beaches and downtown Charleston, this summer opened its Residents Club. Sporting a junior Olympic-size pool, kid-friendly water features, changing rooms and a playground, the new club already finds itself a magnet for residents, marketers say.
“The neighborhood amenities, coastal lifestyle and top notch builder team is a draw for many residents and has helped boost the demand for new homes in Mount Pleasant,” Cuzzell says.
