An article about Misty Isle Farms reads, "Vancour portrays it as a bargain. 'Any place on the West Coast, any large property of that size near a major city would typically sell for $100 million or more,' he said. 'We’re trying to attract an international buyer for that property at that price.'

While a homebuilder could theoretically buy Misty Isle and build 47 homes on it, the island’s water districts can make development difficult, said Jim Marsh, executive director of the Vashon Island Chamber of Commerce.

Over the years, 'I’ve heard so many rumors it was just about for sale,' Marsh said. 'We’ll believe it when we see the sale go through.'”
