As a special incentive to the first 100 buyers of lake-view lots, the developer is offering 3 years of free financing on 10-year, 12% notes, no down payment, and one week at a nearby established resort  "a $1200 value." The normal price per lot is $12,000. The cost per lake-view lot to the developer is an estimated average of $2,000.

The notes are held by Davis Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary.
