Living within city limits of major metropolitan areas used to be a must for many career-focused families. Being close to the office and steps away from the energetic buzz of culture and nightlife were perks that offset things like higher living costs and less square footage that come with city living. Over the last year however, homeowners have started re-evaluating what they are looking for in buying a home and have prioritized lifestyle in addition to short term needs. As a result, the market has seen a trend of people widening their home search to the suburbs and surrounding areas. This new trend is having a considerable impact on the U.S. housing market by changing consumer sentiment and behavior, let’s see why.

Growth in Suburban Real Estate Sales

As homeowners seek out residences with more room and comfortable remote workspaces, sales for single-family properties in the suburbs have surged 17.3% since June. Prices for suburban housing remain competitive and interest rates are historically low, making it considerably appealing to move away from the city. This new trend is also bringing families together. Homeowners figure why not invest in a larger, updated space with more amenities and closer to nature? Properties in communities with nature trails, nearby parks, and water activities are seeing a surge in online searches.

Located in the northeast corner of Florida, beautiful Nassau County sprawls along Florida’s northernmost coast. A new master-planned community by GreenPointe Developers offers incredible value in a beautiful, natural sanctuary. Tributary has exactly what today’s suburban-seeking home buyers are looking for. This 1,550-acre community is set in nature and just minutes away from A-rated schools, premium healthcare, and countless outdoor adventures.

Home is the New Office

Millions of people are now working remotely from home, so the need to be close to an office has dwindled. Homeowners now want the place they live to be optimized for virtual work, and they want their “office” to be comfortable. This trend has also seen a 20% leasing drop in commercial real estate, meaning businesses are also embracing the new digital wave for their employees. Homeowners are saving too, with the elimination of daycare costs, commuting, parking, and even tax advantages that come with a home office. A recent study found that remote workers are 13% more efficient than office employees. This bodes well for future remote-work strategies, where companies may decide to switch up traditional workplace structures.

Outdoor Adventure in Your Backyard

The recent need to stay home and social distance has also caused a great increase in popular outdoor activities. Individuals and families alike are spending more time outside in the fresh air and natural light, reconnecting with nature. North Florida’s new community, Tributary, has the solution for homeowners wanting to get away from the urban landscape. Tributary is designed and seated in Florida’s natural environment, bringing future residents all the wondrous biodiversity, fishing, and adventure right to their door. Residents can hike a wonderfully designed trail system that connects to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Regional Park. Amelia Island is close by and features pristine beaches, native wildlife, and a historic district with quaint shops and cafes.

Your New Hometown

Within the Tributary community, residents will enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, lagoon-style pool, fitness center, activities at the fun-filled Lookout Amenity Center, kayak launch, and beautifully designed trail systems. Master-planned and surrounded by nature, residents will never run out of ways to Explore More. New modern-rustic homes from the area’s top builders: Dream Finders, Lennar and Richmond American Homes, start from the $200’s. Interested homebuyers can stay connected at TributaryLiving.com and be first to learn of any updates such as the opening of the Model Home Village in early 2021.

If you’re looking for a new suburban community surrounded by nature, Tributary has it all: value, impeccable design and planning, and amazing amenities. Upstream your lifestyle today!

A lot of things come to mind when you hear the word “forever”. It’s exciting to imagine what life has in store for you over the next 25- 30 years. One thing is certain, you are going to spend a great deal of your life here with your family, and the place you choose to call “home” should have all the features you want. As you grow through the years, your home should have the ability to grow with you. From babies, to teenagers, through college years and into empty nest stages, your home will be central to many of life’s joys and moments together. So what features are most important when considering a “forever home”? Let us help you put things into perspective.

LOVING YOUR LOCATION

One of the most important factors that comes to play when finding a “forever home” is an ideal location. This choice is critical to the needs and wants of everyone in your household, both now and in the future. As home prices within city limits continue to rise, and the ability to work remotely has become increasingly possible, many people are deciding to relocate to the surrounding suburbs of major cities. The appeal of more space for your money, while still being in close proximity to popular dining spots and area attractions, is greatly influencing homebuyers’ criteria as they begin their “forever home” search. The desire to reconnect with nature is also a huge draw. Communities that promote active outdoor lifestyles are becoming increasingly popular, as are homes with lots of natural light sources, fresh air and outdoor spaces to enjoy and entertain in. Zoning plays a major part in the “forever home” search too. Families with school age children want access to quality education at all levels of learning.

Recently, Florida has made the news as hundreds of people each day are moving from northern states, causing home sales to more than double across the Sunshine State. Nassau County’s own master-planned community, Tributary, is quickly becoming one of the state’s most sought out addresses. Located just north of Jacksonville and only 2 exits from the international airport, Tributary residents will find the freedom to enjoy a healthy, outdoorsy lifestyle while being in close proximity to the thriving Jacksonville region. It truly is a one-of-a-kind location surrounded by nature, close to A-rated schools, historic downtowns, shopping and incredible beaches.
If a move to Florida is in your sights, this is definitely a place you want to check out.

HOME DESIGN WITH YOU IN MIND

Another major factor of your “forever home” search is its design and functionality. Is there enough square footage to accommodate your current life and future plans? Will you need room to grow or flexible living areas and multi-purpose spaces? The way you plan to use your space over the years should be considered. New construction homes are highly desired by first time home buyers and actually within reach. Open floorplans with modern and energy efficient features that are customizable to each buyers’ unique tastes are attainable in new communities popping up in the less pricey suburbs of cities. Another feature important to buyers is outdoor space. Backyards for children to run and play, for pets to frolic or space for hobbies like gardening are features of your home that add value and promote well-being.

BEST NEW HOME VALUES

Lastly, your “forever home” must be within your budget. The current state of the housing market definitely has its opportunities right now. Historically low interest rates are opening the doors of homeownership to many who may have previously been priced out of the market. Other factors like Florida’s below average cost of living and absence of state income tax are both huge draws for people thinking of relocating to the southeast. The option to affordably build your dream home within a new community is also now a reality.

Ultimately, your “forever home” should have everything you want and more. A great location, a functional floorplan and design with your personal touches, and an affordable price tag. If you are currently residing in or considering a move to sunny North Florida, Nassau County is a growing area that’s worth a look. GreenPointe Developers have unveiled Tributary, an exciting master-planned community located just two miles west of I-95 off of SR200/A1A.

Tributary’s renowned amenities will serve as the social centerpiece of the community. The Lookout Amenity Center will include a sparkling, lagoon-style pool, Adventure Zone tot-lot, paw-some dog park, state-of-the-art fitness studio and an array of sports courts. Pocket parks and trails that directly connect to neighboring Four Creeks State Forest as well as a kayak launch are all being designed to encourage outdoor fun and bring family and friends together to create memories right in your own backyard.

For many average American workers, the dream of owning a home has been a lofty aspiration. Renting was a choice by necessity, not the end game. Now, with the current climate creating uncertainty in many areas of life, home ownership may be a silver lining that results from the events of 2020. Historically low interest rates are opening the doors to homeownership to many who may have previously been priced out of the market. It might sound surprising, but now may be the ideal time to transition from renting to buying, or just to make a move in general. Here are the three main things to consider:

1. The Market

The current state of the market certainly has its opportunities right now. Those in the seller’s shoes can negotiate higher prices for their properties due to limited existing inventory. Buyers, on the other hand, can take advantage of competitively priced homes and extremely low interest rates. The option to affordably build your dream home within a new community may also be on the table.

2. Your Budget

Potential buyers may be in a perfect position to capitalize on their situation. And if they have money already set aside to invest and job stability, even better! Timing is a key factor when considering a home purchase.

Homeownership offers not only the benefits of stability, belonging to a community and pride of ownership, but also greater financial flexibility. There are special types of loans offered to individuals like first time home buyers or veterans, tax breaks and the opportunity to build equity and long-term wealth for yourself and your family. And since interest rates are so low, your mortgage payment will most likely be less than what you were spending in rent. There are even new communities currently being developed aimed at providing a variety of options to meet every budget. Tributary, a new community by GreenPointe Developers, is bringing a new style of modern-rustic homes to Nassau County that are competitively priced from the $200’s. You can take a look at the impressive selection of 30+ distinctively designed single-family homes here.

3. Your Reason

Why are you thinking of buying a new home? Is your family growing, downsizing, or are you just looking to make a move to an area more suited to your lifestyle? A growing number of people now have the flexibility to work remotely, decreasing the need to reside near and commute to an office every day. This is allowing those the option to expand their home search to more areas bringing in more choices to consider. Millennial buyers are now at the age of starting families and deciding that more square footage, quality school systems, abundant outdoor space and new communities with family-friendly amenities are a critical component of their home searches.

If you are currently residing in or considering a move to sunny North Florida, Nassau County is a growing area that’s worth a look. GreenPointe Developers has unveiled Tributary, an exciting master-planned community located just west of I-95 off of SR200/A1A.

Showing homes back in the day – back, meaning six months ago – potential homebuyers preferred the tangible-standard of walking through an open house, touching the amenities, and shaking the broker’s hand when the purchase was completed. Times have certainly changed. While virtual 3D tours and video calls started to catch on years ago, the current climate created a new digital norm for homebuyers. Crisp, high definition 3D virtual tours now allow buyers to see every inch of a property without leaving the comfort of their couch. While the usual process of physically visiting real estate before a purchase will probably never disappear, the need for social distancing in recent times has definitely transformed the real estate market.

Millennials helped drive this high-tech trend as using smart phones and other technology is how this demographic research (and buy) almost everything, including their first homes. Interestingly, the psychology of shoppers has also drastically changed. Quarantine has greatly influenced buyers to reevaluate what they really want in a home. Still, all of this reinforces the need for tech to drive this market, especially now.

Nassau County’s newest master-planned community Tributary is ahead of the game with this new virtual frontier. Although the models are not yet complete, the community’s new website provides a virtual digital home shopping experience for future homebuyers. This new site gives prospective homebuyers the ability to preview select properties in a high definition interactive experience.
