Due to rising materials costs, the builder team has increased the price of the units in Fall 2021 on the initial eight lots by 5% to $577,500 each. The remaining 32 lots are priced at $577,500 plus an annual increase of 3% per year for the period following November 12, 2020. This results in a sale price of $594,825 beginning November 12, 2021 for the remaining 32 lots. The 3% per year allowable annual increase will be pro-rated at the closing of each sale in proportion to the number of days per year since the last annual increase. If you have already applied or are interested in applying and the increased costs cause you to no longer qualify for the new purchase price, please contact us.
Placer County is processing applications and creating a list of qualified buyers. The developer, Daniel Fraiman Construction, will contact the qualified buyers to issue purchase contracts beginning in Fall/Winter 2021.
