Something looks fishy about these sales numbers:
Sales History
Date Price
10/19/2004 $1,150,000
09/30/2004 $743,300

Did someone really make over $300k in less than 3 weeks?

The Grande was new back then, that sale was almost assuredly the original buyer (flipper) that had contracted to buy that unit at that price 2-3 years before delivery.

That was an amazing time in terms of profits, those profits fueled the investor frenzy that is now going the other direction and is resulting in losses, short sales and foreclosures.

Your scenario makes sense. Precontruction purchases are a good deal sometimes. Looks like the original purchaser walked away with a tidy profit on this deal.
