Harbor Hill At Provincetown Bulk Condo Auction Announced
PROVINCETOWN, MA (December 1, 2016) – Twenty-six condominiums in the Harbor Hill at Provincetown Resort in Provincetown, Massachusetts are slated to go on the block as a bulk offering on February 14, 2017. The resort ceased operations on August 30, 2016, when the operating entity, Harbor Hill at Provincetown Condominium Trust, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Warren E. Agin was appointed as the bankruptcy Trustee, and is seeking to the sell the property in its entirety to a single buyer, creating a rare buying opportunity in this iconic destination at the tip of Cape Cod. NRC Realty & Capital Advisors of MA, LLC (NRC) has been retained to conduct the auction.
“I assessed a variety of options for creating the greatest chance of a recovery for the interval owners,” Agin explained. “Ultimately, based on a review of the final situation by myself and my financial advisory team, plus a survey of the owners, I concluded the property should be sold by auction to ensure transparency and valuation certainty.”
The property sits on a 1.2-acre site and is comprised of twenty-six one, two, and three-bedroom condominiums spread across four, two or three-story wood frame, wood shingle buildings. The units were originally designed for use as vacation timeshare units. Parking for 27 cars is available on-site. Interested parties should call NRC at 800-747-3342, extension 1624 to register to view the property.
“This sale presents an extremely rare opportunity for investors or re-developers to purchase a project of this type in this iconic town,” commented Evan Gladstone, NRC’s Executive Managing Director. “The Harbor Hills at Provincetown Resort is a short walk to the vibrant Commercial Street shopping, dining, nightlife district, and beach,” he said. “The upside here is enormous.”
