Sales activity surges at Fiddler’s Creek

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Fiddler’s Creek has reported a significant increase in the number of home sales this year.

According to Aubrey J. Ferrao, president and CEO of Fiddler’s Creek LLC, the residential community has signed 28 sales contracts since Feb. 1, 2012. These contracts were valued at over $13 million. Total closed sales in the Fiddler’s Creek community increased by 94 percent for the period February 1, 2012 to March 15, 2012 compared with the same period in 2011.

“This season has been exceptionally strong at Fiddler’s Creek,” Ferrao said. “The increased activity is being driven by D.R. Horton and Lennar Corp., two national homebuilders who joined our community toward the end of last year. We also are seeing considerable buyer interest in our shrinking inventory of season-ready, move-in homes currently available at Fiddler’s Creek.”
