Stendahl Ridge begins at College Marketplace
POULSBO Although there arent many homes dotting the ridge overlooking Liberty Bay along Viking Avenue, that doesnt mean sales for Quadrant Homes Stendahl Ridge development arent going well.
Were already more than half sold out, said Quadrant Homes vice president of marketing William Boucher. Were closer to 60 percent.
The first residences in the 185-unit development will be ready for occupancy in late September, and more are on the way, Boucher said. The homes start in the $250,000s.
We dont build them until theyre sold to the homebuyer, Boucher said. Unlike some developers who build homes and then wait for buyers to purchase them, Quadrant Homes takes a slightly different tack. We build to their exact specifications.
Potential owners can select their home site and choose from one of up to three layouts, he said.
Once that is completed, buyers visit Quadrants Bellevue home showcase and pick their interior furnishings, he said. They also get to select a landscaping plan for their new home.
We have a lot of people from the area purchasing our homes. There are lot of people wanting to move into the area, Boucher said.
Because of its affordability, Stendahl Ridge has also seen many former renters purchasing homes as well, he said.
A lot of folks buying homes for the first time end up buying Quadrant homes, he said. We try to make them as affordable as possible for the average wage-earner.
As for the possibility of another Quadrant Home development in Poulsbo, Boucher said he is unaware of any such plans, but he didnt entirely rule it out either.
For Poulsbo Mayor Kathryn Quade, having developers such as Quadrant Homes and Chaffey Homes along with the Kitsap County Consolidated Housing Authoritys self-help program in the city makes a positive impact on the citys need for affordable housing.
The main thing is having as many housing options as possible, Quade said. We are doing everything we can to increase our inventory of affordable housing.
