Marginal Benefits in Brillianthood

Suppose you're the builder of luxury condos in the Brillianthood. You have a variable supply curve (as opposed to a fixed supply), that depends on the price you can charge for your condos. It's a linear function. If you can charge $100K per condo, you can build 25 condos. If you can charge $300K per condo, you can build 125 condos.

Unfortunately, you're the first into the market, and know that apartment prices are lower now than they will be after you build your condos. A real estate expert estimates that, at the present moment, demand will only allow you to get $200K per condo you build. But that after you build and sell your condos, demand will increase, and the market would be willing to pay $250K/condo. What's the marginal benefit you're relinquishing to the market?
