Talking Rock Ranch Accounts for 12% of Prescott Home Sales

PRESCOTT, AZ--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) - Talking Rock Ranch posts its second consecutive year of positive sales figures, even as the real estate industry nationwide continues to fight through one of the toughest economic periods in recent history. The 3,600-acre private home and golf community in Prescott closed 2010 with a 58 percent decrease in inventory, accounting for 12 percent of the area's home site sales. Talking Rock's year-to-date numbers speak to this accomplishment including 56 total sales, 37 lots and 19 homes. 

"We are thrilled that our ongoing efforts are reaping positive results," says Jim Jones, director of sales for Talking Rock. "Each year presents us with a unique challenge communicated through our consumers. In 2010 it was the need for smaller, more efficient properties. We look forward to seeing what 2011 has in store."

Strong 2010 sales numbers follow the success of 2009 which included 55 unit sales, surpassing the total number for 2007 and 2008. The ongoing success of Talking Rock can be attributed to Harvard Investments' commitment to recognizing change in consumer demand. An example is the introduction of the Lone Spur Collection from TRD&B Inc. last year.

After noticing the consumer demand for smaller homes in Prescott, Talking Rock worked with TRD&B to introduce the collection highlighted by intimate spaces with larger design concepts, resulting in more affordable, energy efficient homes with quality finishes that are typical in custom home designs. The Lone Spur Collection met that need, and sold and completed two properties with two sites currently under construction and an additional two pending contracts.
