Halifax Landing in numbers is about a South Daytona condominium, built in 2008, which was supposed to be surrounded by a few high-rises on both sides, but the real estate crisis put a stop to great plans. Seems like the time for new construction is close, the market is experiencing a boom, and it might be the sign of a coming what we experienced in 2005-2006.
This gated 188-unit riverfront condo complex has 16 units per floor. All of the units have the view of the intracoastal and the ocean from higher floors. 6 units are 2-bedroom/2 baths; 8 units are 2 bedroom/2 baths + a study, and two direct riverfront units are 3 bedroom/3baths large units (2,296 sf.)
Currently there are 5 units for sale at Halifax Landing. Starting price is $289,900 for 2 bedr/2 bath units and the price goes to $325,000 for a 2 bedr/2 baths plus a study. 5 units for sale out of 188 total units is only 2.66% while a “healthy” number is around 7-8%, and this is in the midst of a slow season, when usually the inventory increases, and the prices go down. Not this time. This is just one sign for a potential explosive market.

When you see 2 years (2011 and 2012) with 115 condos sold, you stumble. How could this ever happen? We do not see this kind of absorption…
It is pretty simple. When you see that the condo was built in 2008, you understand that this already was a crisis, and investors suddenly disappeared, and did not go through with contracts, and the developer was facing a prospect of maintaining a huge inventory of unsold units, and not being able to pay off their lenders.
And tis is exactly what happened here. Frustrated developer turned to The Marketing Directors, a Georgia Company from Atlanta, and they did marvelous job. They saved the developer.
Interestingly, they cold not generate anything close to what they did in Halifax Landing, when they tried the same with Marina Grande on the Halifax. They did not last long at Marina Grande.
And I have no clue why…
