Gig Harbor, Washington , Jan. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCDI, HCDIP, HCDIW, HCDIZ) (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has entered into a preliminary commitment for $15,715,000 in construction financing with Marquee Funding Group for the 75 unit Wyndstone apartment complex located in Yelm, Washington.

Yelm is conveniently located only 22 miles from Washington State's capital of Olympia to the south and 24 miles to Join Base Lewis - McChord. Joint Base Lewis-McChord is a major US military installation with an active population of nearly 210,000 inhabitants, making it the fourth largest military installment worldwide by population. Wyndstone is ideally suited to cater to military personnel and their families. Residents will enjoy rural style living while having easy access to shopping, retail services, and schools.

“We are pleased to enter into this agreement with Marquee Funding Group, who has been a valued and dependable lender for several of our projects over the past 12 months," stated Jeff Habersetzer, Chief Operating Officer for Harbor Custom Development, Inc. “The Wyndstone 75-unit apartment project had been previously considered for condominiums catering to first time homebuyers. However, rapidly changing market conditions over the past 12 months that have resulted in capitalization rates dropping to historic lows in Western Washington while accompanied with significant increases in rental rates have shifted the value proposition. It is our objective to complete construction of Wyndstone in 2022 and sell the project upon completion. If current market conditions remain constant, we anticipate generating approximately $26 million from the sale of the project,” stated Sterling Griffin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harbor Custom Development, Inc. The non - binding preliminary commitment with Marquee Funding Group is subject to final underwriting and there can be no assurance as to whether, when, or on what terms the loan will be completed.
