In June a buyer paid $9.25 million to McCormick Land Company for nearly 2,000 acres of timberland south of McCormick Woods.
The deal highlighted a busy spring and summer for commercial land transactions in Kitsap County. Below is a roundup of other high-profile sales recorded from April through July, with details from assessor’s documents and additional research.
This list doesn’t include the $20 million sale of the Silverdale Ridge apartments, which I reported on earlier this year.
Keep in mind these are property transactions, and the businesses occupying these properties may not have changed hands.
