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. Where modern-rustic homes from the area’s top builders are affordably priced from the $200s, perfect for first time home buyers.

Tributary’s renowned amenities will serve as the social centerpiece of the community. The Lookout Amenity Center will include a sparkling, resort-inspired 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. It’s the perfect place to gather with family and friends to create memories and “Explore More” right in your own backyard. It truly is a one-of-a-kind location surrounded by nature, close to A-rated schools, historic downtowns, shopping and incredible beaches.

Interested prospective buyers can check out over 30 unique home designs, learn more about the community, and contact the sales team by visiting TributaryLiving.com. Connect with us to stay updated and discover why Tributary is the perfect place to call home.

For many across the country, society’s “new normal” has considerably limited their social life and changed their perspective for the future. And while it’s likely to be considered risky to gather in large groups of family and friends for a while longer, maybe this is the time to explore all the ways to connect with the great outdoors! North Florida is full of amazing natural wonders with wide open spaces and fun attractions. While Nassau County is a path less traveled, it offers a diverse array of activities that has homebuyers appreciating their surroundings like never before. Here are some activities we think will spark any adventurer’s interest.

Feel Free in the Sand & Sea!

If you love the ocean, you have to visit Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Located on the coastline in northeast Florida, these destinations are easy to reach but hard to forget. 13 miles of coastline and over 40 public beach access points allows for plenty of room to relax under the sun, swim in the cool water, or catch some waves if the surf’s up. Top surf spots on the North side include Main Beach, American Beach, Peters Point and Ft. Clinch State Park. You can even check out the area’s surf reports and cams before paddling out. And if you want to literally “hoof it”, you can book a guided local tour of the pristine Atlantic shore by horseback.

Exploration Made Easy

For those who prefer traveling on their own two feet, a visit to the area’s best hiking and nature trails will keep you grounded. You can choose to explore yourself, or book a guided nature walk that takes place every Saturday morning at 10:30 am. Four Creeks State Forest covers 13,106 acres, and joins Alligator (Mills), Thomas, Boggy and Plummer Creeks. While there are many ways to explore this massive forest along the forest and service roads, the named Wood-Shingle Mill Trail stretches 2.6 miles from the trailhead located right off State Road 200. If a visit isn’t enough and you want to immerse yourself in nature, Nassau County’s newest community, Tributary, may be exactly what you’ve been searching for. This new community will feature masterfully planned trails that not only wind through its green spaces and parks, but also directly connects to the trailheads of neighboring Four Creeks State Forest.

Nearby, John Muir Ecological Park in Yulee is an easy quarter mile trail that zigzags through the forested marshland connecting a series of picnic shelters. Listen to the birds sing from the trees and even see the main line of one of Florida’s first railroads. History meets nature at Fort Clinch State Park. This historic fort, significant to the Civil War, is only one aspect of the 1,400-acre park. Hiking trails cover all types of terrain and difficulty levels, while winding through forests, marsh and sand dunes. Wildlife observation is very good on these trails. Alligators, deer, gopher tortoises and a variety of birds can be seen throughout the park.

Above (or Below) Par Action

For those looking to trek where the grasses are a bit more maintained, North Florida has almost unlimited options for golf. Nassau County in particular has a handful of courses to choose from. To name a few, the Amelia River Golf Club is a full-service semi-private golf course with a club house, pro shop, PGA golf instruction, practice areas, locker rooms and dining facilities which are open to the public. The 27-hole Fernandina Beach Golf Club is one of the most popular municipal golf facilities in the country with its close proximity to Jacksonville and area beaches. The Golf Club at North Hampton is a signature Arnold Palmer designed golf course. This top-ranked course features spring-fed lakes, wild grasses and various elevation changes, unlike any other design in Northeast Florida.

A Bird’s Eye View of Nassau County

Still not getting your adrenaline levels up…how does social distancing from 12,000 feet above ground sound? Then freefalling at speeds of over 125 miles per hour. Did I get your attention? Skydiving is definitely a high octane, once in a lifetime adventure and one of the best ways for thrill seekers to take in all of Northern Florida’s natural beauty.

Close to Home

No matter your interests or speeds, Nassau County has something for every outdoor adventurer. One of its most anticipated additions is Tributary, a new master-planned community by GreenPointe Developers that delivers unmatched value in a beautiful, natural sanctuary. Residents of Tributary are invited to “Explore More” with a thoughtfully planned trail system that directly connects to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Park. Within the 1,550-acre master-planned community, residents will also enjoy The Lookout Amenity Center complete with a resort-inspired pool, fitness studio, dog park, Adventure Zone Tot-Lot, and so much more! Homes are priced from the $200’s, have been unveiled and can be viewed on TributaryLiving.com. Six of the builders’ unique model homes will soon break ground and be ready to tour later this year. Be sure to connect with us to stay updated and discover why Tributary is the perfect place to call home.

Did you know the area of northeast Florida we call Nassau County is one of the oldest counties in Florida with a fascinating history that dates back to the mid-16th century? Being the only county in the U.S. that has been occupied by the French, Spanish, British, and Americans, Revolutionary War and Civil War action, Nassau County tells the outstanding story of industry, agriculture, and life in early days of Florida.

We are proud to be situated in such a remarkable locale – here’s a glimpse of the old days of Nassau County.

Discovery of Nassau County

In 1562 the French took first possession of Nassau County inhabited by Native Americans, but only for a short time. Spanish explorer Pedro Menendez drove out the French in 1565. Under the occupation of Menendez, the Spanish influence dominated the island and mainland Nassau County throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, which was the first of two Spanish colonial periods in Florida history.

American Revolution and After

Florida was transferred to the British by the Treaty of Paris in 1763 along with all of the east coast. Under the rule of the British, they brought the plantation system that would survive for nearly 100 years and a program of development and construction to Nassau County.

By 1783, Florida had again transferred back to the Spanish re-establishing a land-grant system and plantation system and fostering the first real land boom. With the beginning of pirates and slave runners, Amelia Island and Fernandina became a slave smuggling port with the rapid growth of population and sailing vessels anchored in the harbor. In 1821, Florida was ceded to the United States and Nassau County became a part of Duval County until 1824 when Nassau County would break away.

The American Civil War

The American Civil War broke out in Charleston harbor in 1861 which, in return, brought a Union invasion of Amelia Island the following year. Union troops commenced destroying the railroads, offices, rolling back and removed the rails up to the mainland. With so many wealthy landowners leaving the area, slaves were released from bondage and scattered to their own settlements such as Franklintown on the south end of Amelia Island.

Significant Economic Development

The significant economic boom began with the paper industry in the late 1930s. Container Corporation of America (today’s WestRock) planted its roots in Fernandina, establishing a paperboard mill, which began production in 1937. This changed the course of history here in Nassau County. Today, WestRock’s Fernandina plant produces 155,000 metric tons of softwood cellulose specialties per year. It contributes $35 million annually to Florida’s wages and salaries and $2 million to Florida’s property and sales taxes. Ranked among the nation’s top 50 exporters, the plant ships products to five continents and 80 ports around the world.

Understanding the significance of Nassau County’s history and nature, today’s settlers value these tributaries for their natural state, rich history and tradition. They appreciate the opportunity to explore these untouched, protected areas with generations to come. As the newest community in Nassau County, Tributary recognizes the history and the importance of preserving this dynamic land, with much of the land being preserved within and around the community. Tributary is where people will celebrate the natural surroundings as part of the community’s vision and design.

It’s a model lifestyle for tomorrow, waiting to be discovered today. The perfect place to call home. Within the 1,550-acre master-planned community, residents will enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, resort-style pool, fitness center and activities at the fun-filled Amenity Center. New modern-rustic homes will be offered from the $200s, interested homebuyers can join the VIP list at tributaryliving.com to ensure they are first to learn of any updates as we approach the grand opening of model homes late this summer.

Nassau County is one of the fastest-growing communities in Florida. In other locations, critical services tend to come much later in the process as health care providers wait for critical mass. Here in North Florida, the medical community is leading the way, driving high demand for new homes and facilities for its health care providers. Nassau County is welcoming four new healthcare innovators to the community with open arms – UF Health, Baptist Health, River City Rehabilitation Center, and Memorial Hospital. The expansion of the medical industry is a key component to creating a thriving community in Nassau County, creating both high-paying new jobs and top-notch services for the broader community.

UF Health

UF Health is the region’s premier academic health center hub for clinical research and unique provider of advanced patient care leading the industry as a leader in the education of health professionals.

As a result of tireless commitment of trained doctors and nurses, Baptist Health was recognized as the only system in North Florida to receive a Magnet recognition, a program that presents attraction and retention of professional nurses. The new Baptist Health will be fully integrated within Baptist Health hospital system delivering quality care and adding convenience to the residents of North Jacksonville.

River City Rehabilitation Center

This newly constructed rehabilitation center will serve the senior residents of North Florida starting in March 2020. The new center consists of 116 dually certified beds in 81,000 square feet and spans 10 acres in size. Services will include three gyms and a therapy courtyard with an emphasis on physical, speech and occupational therapy. An oxygen delivery system will be installed in several rooms. The new facility features an ultra-modern design and state of the art equipment allowing the facility to provide residents unparalleled short-term rehabilitation along with long term care.

Memorial Hospital – Future Site

Another health care provider has a facility planned within a mile of Nassau County. HCA Healthcare, the parent company of Memorial Hospital purchased 55.28 acres for 15.8 million and will be under development. “It will allow us to establish a future presence in Nassau County and to align with the planned growth in the region,” said Bradley Talbert, CEO of Memorial Hospital. The medical team is delighted to be part of the Nassau Community and serve the area’s fast-growing medical needs. Located directly at Interstate 95 and Florida A1A, this memorial site will play an important role in Nassau County’s medical community.

For those new homebuyers who are focused on living a healthy lifestyle, the next exciting opening will come this summer. GreenPointe Developers will be unveiling Tributary, an exciting master-planned community just minutes from the new medical centers. Located just west of I-95 off of SR 200, Tributary is adjacent to Tributary Park and the state-protected Four Creeks State Forest.
