The date of the lot release will be announced via the website in advance of the release date allowing sufficient time for all documents to be reviewed. 

When the release date and time arrives, the Offer Submission link will go live and when clicked, will take you to a fillable Offer Submission form.  Everyone, either directly or through their local representative or sales agent, is welcome to submit an offer for a lot through the website. 

The minimum offer price list provides sales price information on the lots.  Any offers received that are below the minimum offer price listed for each lot will not be considered.

When the Lot Release Period closes, all offers will be reviewed and the highest offer received for each individual lot will enter into a purchase agreement.

You should submit multiple offers in order of your preference for each lot, and if you are the highest offer on multiple lots, lot offers will be accepted in the order in which they are received. As an example, if you submit offers on Lots 1, 2, 18 and 19, in that order, and lots 1 and 2 are sold to other buyers, we will accept your offer on Lot 18.

We will update the website with the status of the lot availability. Please check the website for the latest updates.

You may submit offers for multiple lots. However, one form must be submitted per lot offer, and due to the small number of lots available in this  release, we may limit the number of lots that one person or entity can purchase at this time.

If an offer has already been submitted & accepted for the lot you want, you may consider entering into a back up contract or you are welcome to consider other lots that may be available. In addition, you can participate in future lot releases.

A back up contract is a binding purchase and sale agreement where the buyer agrees that they are not obligated to close on the lot until they are notified that the primary contract has been terminated. Back up offers may be accepted at any time. Any back up contract holder will be required to place a 10% deposit in escrow, which will be returned to the back up contract holder should the primary contract move forward with closing. Once the lot sale closes with the primary contract buyer, the back up contract is terminated and the deposit is returned. However, if, for any reason, the primary contract should not close or be terminated by either party, the back up contract holder will be notified that they are no longer the back up contract holder, and they will become the primary contract holder and will be expected to close on the purchase of the lot in accordance with the terms of the purchase and sale agreement.

The next lot release has not yet been scheduled.  Typically, all Online offers are accepted for 24 hours.    All offers that are received will be reviewed and you will hear from us if your offer has been accepted.  Once you receive the contract documents from us and the membership application from the Membership Office, you will have 24 hours to return the membership application, signed contract documents and earnest money deposit. .

The purchase and sale agreement calls for an earnest money deposit of 10% of the total lot purchase price. The total lot purchase price includes the sales price of the lot and the water and sewer impact fees and the irrigation system connection fee. You will be notified of the exact amount of deposit due at the time of signing the purchase and sale agreement. The earnest money deposit should be made by wire transfer at the time of signing the purchase and sale agreement.  Wiring instructions will be included with the contract package.

Wiring instructions will be included with the contract documents. You will need to call the escrow agent as indicated on the wiring instructions to confirm the account. It is important that you also include a reference for the lot number with your wire so that the escrow agent can apply the deposit to your purchase agreement.

Additional Questions:

If you are working with a Florida-based Real Estate Agent or representative, your Agent or representative can submit the offer for a lot during the Release Period on your behalf. If the offer you authorize during the Release Period is accepted, Your Agent or representative will be the point of contact for receiving the purchase and sale agreement as well as coordinating with you to remit the earnest money deposit and the subsequent closing. At closing, the developer will pay a co-broker commission in the amount of 2.5% to your licensed real estate agent in accordance with generally accepted co-broker commission practices.

In some portions of the community the roads are completed and some of the homes are under construction.  Other portions of the community are still under site development which is anticipated to be completed in 2022.  Safety is our primary concern and it will be too dangerous to allow public access to those areas still in site development.   Update videos will be posted on the website so that you can follow along with the progress of site development. 

The legal requirements for closing a sale is that a plat must be recorded in the public records of Walton County, Florida. Closing on the sale of the lot in advance of completion of the site infrastructure will give you the opportunity to begin the design of your new home, complete design review procedures, and submit for a building permit, so that once site development is completed, you can commence construction.

We will have our geotechnical consultant perform compaction testing on any fill that our site contractor has installed on your lot. Only after we have provided you with a copy of the compaction report for your lot, should you engage your land surveyor to prepare a survey for your lot. At that time, the lot fill will be completed, the lot corner pins will be set and the road adjacent to your lot will be paved.

If we have not provided you with compaction reports on your lot, that means that your lot and surrounding area is still under site development and there is no need for you to think about lot maintenance. Once we have provided the lot compaction reports, the lots and adjacent roadway construction is substantially complete, and at that time, it will become your responsibility to maintain any silt fencing or other erosion control measures that may have been installed by our site contractor.

Your lot and access roads in the subdivision may still be under site development when you close. We will provide monthly updates on the status of the site development. When the roads in front of your lot are paved, the water and sanitary sewer systems serving your lot are certified and placed into service and you have received your building permit from Walton County, you may start construction of your home. Prior to and throughout your home construction process, you will be responsible for maintaining any silt fencing or other erosion control measures on your lot that may have been installed by our site contract or your homebuilding contractor.
