CLE ELUM — More than $41 million worth of homes and homesites have sold this year at Suncadia, a Central Washington resort featuring nine neighborhoods to suit a variety of styles.

Home sales are forecast to increase throughout the remainder of the year as the demand for second homes continues to rise, says Richard Seay, vice president and director of sales and marketing at Suncadia.

"We're seeing that customers are once again comfortable pursuing their plans to build," he says. "Construction costs are still relatively low, and people are once again making the decision to build. It's exciting to see the promising growth and expansion of the Suncadia community."

Suncadia closed more than $42 million in home sales in 2012, representing its best year since 2008 and more than doubling the total from the previous year. This year, 141 properties have been sold at Suncadia, compared with 128 in 2012.

Two builders have joined the mix at Suncadia this year. Bella Villa Resort Homes of Ridgefield, Wash., and Element Residential, Inc., of Bothell purchased a combined 23 homesites in the Prospector's Reach neighborhood, which marked the first multiple-home development by builders since 2008.

Suncadia includes vacation homes, homesites and condominiums ranging in price from $65,000 to $2 million. Neighborhoods include The Lodge, Rope Rider, Prospector, Black Nugget, Trailhead and Prospector's Reach, all of which offer a resort-village experience; Nelson Preserve, which includes views and access to the Cle Elum River; and Tumble Creek and its estate homesites.

"2013 started off as a great year for Suncadia real estate, and we are excited to continue this momentum throughout the year," says Buzz Korth, designated broker for Suncadia Real Estate Sales Company. "Suncadia offers an unmatched setting for second homes, and customers are jumping at the chance to build in our resort community."

Suncadia offers a variety of amenities, including Prospector and Rope Rider golf courses, Portals Restaurant, the Hill House Swim & Fitness Center and the Glade Spring Spa. Suncadia is the only resort of its kind to feature championship golf on two resort courses and a winery within its boundaries -- Swiftwater Cellars, which crushes grapes onsite.

In addition, Tumble Creek homeowners have access to the private Tom Doak-designed Tumble Creek golf course, and can experience high-end camping at the exclusive Sasse Mountain Outpost.

Seasonal activities and events at the property include summer outdoor movies, Harvest Festival and Winterfest celebrations, outdoor concerts at Swiftwater Cellars, miles of hiking and biking trails, winter ice skating, guided fly-fishing tours and paddleboard rentals.
