REIS Ranks The Ponds First In Dorchester County, Second In Charleston Market For New Home Closings

Real Estate Information Service (REIS), in their latest “New Homes Review,” ranks The Ponds in Summerville first in Dorchester County in total new homes closed from January - April 2019 and second in the Charleston market for the same period. Kolter Homes and Ryan Homes, the two active builders in The Ponds, closed 65 new homes between January and April 2019. Only Cane Bay in Berkeley County had more new homes closed during the same time period.

“The continued growth of our area, and on the east side of Summerville in particular, is exciting to see,” said John Manrique, vice president of marketing for Kolter Homes. “REIS’ latest numbers show that more and more new home buyers find value in the location and outstanding lifestyle benefits The Ponds offers versus other communities in the market. Whether it’s active adult or traditional new homes, The Ponds has great options for everyone.”

Kolter Homes is the lead developer of The Ponds, and offers new homes in both the traditional neighborhood and Cresswind Charleston, The Ponds’ 55+ community. Cresswind Charleston was recently named one of the “Top 50 Master Planned Communities in the US” by Where to Retire Magazine. Ryan Homes, a member of the NVR family and home builder since 1948, is preparing to celebrate their first anniversary at The Ponds.

Dan Ryan Builders recently purchased 31 homesites in The Ponds, and their entrance into the community gives home buyers more options as well as a choice among three new home builders at The Ponds.
