The Steamboat Pilot reports that the cloud of a foreclosure filing by a consortium of seven lending banks has been removed and that Timbers Resorts can begin closing some pending contracts and pursuing new sales at reduced prices. This bodes well for steamboat real estate property.
Timbers Resorts CEO David Burden said
We and our investor group have made significant multimillion-dollar capital contributions to continue our forward momentum, as well as arranged financing for prospective owners at One Steamboat Place. With this loan restructure completed, the banks are now fully behind One Steamboat Place. The terms of the modified loan, along with additional capital invested from our partners, have provided a very solid footing for the continued sellout of the remaining units in the project. The original motion for foreclosure that had been made by the banks was not the result of poor performance at One Steamboat Place.
One Steamboat Place broke ground in late summer 2007 and continued construction through a record snow winter. It posted $15.25 million in sales during its first round of closings in November 2009. The project includes 80 large condominiums with 38 whole-ownership vacation homes among them.
