Hello  Susan!

Congrats on being so close to breaking ground!  Great cause for celebration!

For both Takoma Village in Washington, DC and Eastern Village in Silver Spring, 
MD we looked for 75% sell through. 

Regardless of 5, 10 or 15 committed buyers the real issue is:  do you have 
enough financing (cash, loans, etc.) to cover the construction?   Have you 
qualified for a construction loan?  Can you cover all the carrying fees?

Looking forward to hearing your ribbon cutting announcement!
