Located in the northeast corner of Florida, along the Atlantic Ocean and I-95, picturesque Nassau County sprawls along Florida’s northernmost coast. While it’s known for outdoor adventures on pristine beaches and majestic timberland, one of the area’s best kept secrets is stellar saltwater and freshwater fishing! Dark, sparkling creek water flows through the hammocks and swamps toward the Nassau River, where trophy size largemouth bass and bream are ready to strike. One of the rarely fished hot spots is Lofton Creek, known only among select anglers as a goldmine for bass. The many tidewater feeder streams are perfect examples of the angling adventures awaiting you in Nassau County.
Another prime watering hole for anglers is located just around the corner in Jacksonville, on the St. Johns River. The river runs for twenty-nine miles within Jacksonville, and while you can book a charter, you don’t need a boat to fish the shorelines. There are many waterfront parks and preserves to pull into and enjoy along the river. Catch a variety of fish including Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Jacks, Tarpon, Flounder and other Inshore saltwater fish.
This time of year is perfect for Trout fishing. Local fishing reports tout the oyster beds down river as the “honey hole” for catching Seatrout and Flounder with jigs and live shrimp. Those looking to explore more of the coastline, Amelia Island is just minutes away where the Mangove Snapper are popping. Discover the gorgeous beaches, native wildlife, and a historic district with quaint shops and cafes. Casting a line into the surf from the beach is possible too. Surf fishing in North Florida is excellent during the summer and early fall seasons. At the southern tip of Amelia Island, you can also find a small jetty and the mile-long George Crady Bridge Fishing Pier. Both spots provide excellent points for catching flounder, sea trout and redfish.
For adventurers and nature lovers looking to immerse themselves in Nassau County’s wonder-coast permanently, the master-planned community Tributary has the answer. This 1,550-acre community is just minutes away from A-rated schools, premium healthcare, and countless outdoor explorations. And the best part? Tributary is designed and seated within Florida’s natural environment, bringing future residents all the wondrous biodiversity, fishing, and adventure right to their door.

The Designer Model Home Park is celebrating it’s Grand Opening May 22nd!

What is it that’s drawing thousands of people per day to the Sunshine State? After seeing a shift in people’s everyday life and how they work, many more are reevaluating where they want to live based on the new climate. Now more than ever, people are craving authenticity in the way they are living. City dwellers are moving from the urban areas for safe, open spaces, and beautiful Nassau County in North Florida is starting to get a lot of notice. If you’re one of the families that are thinking of making a move, here are six reasons why you should consider Nassau County.
Nassau County continues to grow, creating many job opportunities along the way. Since May of 2020, the employment rate has expanded steadily in almost every sector. As the medical field expands, multiple healthcare careers have been made available in nearby facilities like UF Health Center and Baptist Medical Center Nassau in Fernandina Beach. The career opportunities don’t stop there, Nassau County consistently outpaces the rest of the state in terms of economic growth and the rate of unemployment is almost 2% lower than the national average.
If you’re looking for an Old Florida experience with the picturesque downtowns, look no further! Nassau County is home to charming beach towns full of charisma and historical intrigue. Whether you’re exploring the Amelia Island Lighthouse, Florida’s oldest lighthouse, or stopping by The Palace Saloon, Florida’s oldest bar. The sites decorating Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island have been well preserved, and Florida’s development is correlated directly with the history of Nassau County. Fun Fact: Fernandina Beach is the only location in the United States to have been under eight different flags – French, Spanish, English, Patriot, Green Cross of Florida, Mexican Rebel, Confederate, and United States Flag. Festivities of all sorts happen throughout the year to celebrate the area’s rich history, including the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.
Nassau County’s public school district is recognized as one of the best in the state with a consistent A-rating for the past 10+ years. With 16 fully accredited schools, both public and private K-12, there are a plethora of excellent options to choose from to best fit your child’s educational needs. Classroom excellence projects a great reputation for Nassau County with an approximate graduation rate of 93% in the area’s four high schools.
This one comes as no surprise! Florida does not have a state income tax. According to the Tax Foundation, Florida has one of the lowest tax burdens in the country which is a big reason why Florida consistently outperforms the rest of the nation in terms of fiscal stability and economic performance, which takes into account the overall business environment, employment and growth opportunities per the U.S. News 2020 Study.
Everyone has become a “foodie” and seeks out that special meal and environment. With that in mind, some of the most delicious and diverse culinary experiences in Florida can be found right here in Nassau County. Fernandina Beach is the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry, no doubt supplying the freshest of seafood, and cuisine of all kinds decorate the area. Whether you’re craving the nightlife fun or an authentic eating experience, each restaurant in Nassau County offers remarkable menu items to please your palate.
The pristine Florida beaches are an integral part of why so many people travel here, but there are plenty of activities to choose from. Nassau County is home to more than 80 golf courses, including Fernandina Beach Golf Club which is one of the most popular municipal golf courses in the Southeastern United States. The PGA Tour is headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach where it hosts The Players Championship, which is only a short drive south along the coast. Four Creeks State Park and Three Rivers State Forest are great locations for wildlife viewing, camping, biking, hiking, and horseback riding is a memorable experience to take in the beauty of the surrounding nature. For the art lovers, farmer’s markets, art tours, and museums line the area making it a colorful, dynamic place to live and discover.
Ideally located in Nassau County, surrounded by thousands of acres of state-protected parks and preserves, is a new master-planned community. Developed by GreenPointe Developers, this expansive community spans over 1,500 acres and will have a total of 3,200 homesites upon completion. Tributary is located just 1.6 miles west of I-95 along A1A/SR 200 (the Amelia Island exit). Just 15 minutes to the south, you’ll find the Jacksonville International Airport and River City Marketplace, a major regional shopping, dining and entertainment destination.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Feb. 11, 2021) – GreenPointe Communities, LLC was honored by the Northeast Florida Builders Association Sales and Marketing Council with seven Laurel Awards. Marketing Director Gaynelle James was named Marketing Professional of the Year and the company received several awards for its community of TrailMark including Best Consumer Promotional event award for Groove in the Grove.
“Gaynelle continues to take our company’s marketing excellence to new heights and her contributions have made a significant impact to multiple operating divisions within our organization,” said GreenPointe Regional President Mike Taylor. “Gaynelle is an accomplished marketing executive and recognized by her peers and colleagues for her creativity and spontaneity. I am thrilled for her to receive this honor for her dedication and commitment to GreenPointe.”
James is responsible for creating the marketing vision, producing strategies and executing tactics that consistently communicate the company’s brand message for GreenPointe’s three operating divisions, corporate headquarters and communities throughout Florida. Among her achievements during the past year, she developed and managed the marketing and promotion for the launch and opening of Tributary, a new master-planned community in Northeast Florida, and held a high-profile groundbreaking for Tributary Regional Park, a public and private partnership between GreenPointe and Nassau County. James developed and managed marketing campaigns for on-site promotional events for three different GreenPointe communities. When the pandemic brought on-site tours by prospective buyers to a halt, James responded by creating virtual tours for five communities throughout Florida. Her efforts and success enhance GreenPointe’s reputation for innovation and results.
With more new communities than ever attracting buyers to Florida, the best way to demonstrate what sets it apart is to showcase the lifestyle through a community event open to all. With expansive outdoor common areas, TrailMark provided the perfect location for a free, live music festival, Groove in the Grove. From midday to sunset, a trio of regional bands entertained approximately 2,000 people next to TrailMark’s Lakeside Camp House. Attendees enjoyed popular local bands and a Family Fun Zone with inflatables, face painting, a mechanical bull, 15 vendors and food trucks, and more. The event resulted in community goodwill, increased awareness and generated hundreds of leads for TrailMark builders while providing a day of music, fun and entertainment for residents and area music-lovers. The extensive and targeted promotion for Groove in the Grove across multiple platforms earned Laurel Awards for Best Overall Advertising Campaign and Best Digital Campaign.
TrailMark received the Laurel Award for Best Facebook page. During 2020, GreenPointe shifted its social media strategy to provide rich content since more people are spending time on social media in lieu of in-person socializing. The Facebook page includes TrailMark announcements, builder news, event promotions, lifestyle tips and provides opportunities to virtually “visit” model homes and the community. With a focus on TrailMark’s nature-first and active living features, the Facebook page showcases the community’s amenities, including biking and walking trails, sports courts, a Camp House amenity center, indoor fitness center and the resort-style pool. Posts include resident- and realtor-shared content. The platform continues to attract followers and helps users make a connection to TrailMark Living.
GreenPointe’s new community of Tributary was honored with Best Print Ad and Best Logo awards. The new community is located along the banks of the Nassau River in the rapidly expanding area of Nassau County, FL. The “Prepare to Blow Your River Lovin’ Mind” ad creates the expectation of a truly life-changing community where families can connect with nature and enjoy special moments through adventure in the neighborhood they call home. Tributary’s pure natural setting served as the vision for developing the logo and brand. The logo is inspired by the natural waterways throughout the area and conveys a true sense of what life has to offer at Tributary.
“GreenPointe shares these Laurel Award honors with our creative partners, Ruckus Advertising and Cotton & Company, and we thank them for bringing our vision to life,” said GreenPointe Marketing Director Gaynelle James. “I am grateful to work with such talented partners and truly appreciate their many contributions to our success.”

If there is anything the last year has taught us it is that peace of mind and good health are priceless. Everyone’s priorities vary in achieving peace of mind, but individual health and the health of loved ones always find their way onto the list. In Nassau County, residents have that peace of mind when it comes to quality healthcare. The area is saturated with some of the finest healthcare establishments in the Sunshine State. Whether your medical need is big or small, there is a resource for you nearby in Nassau County.
UF Health is the region’s premier academic health center hub for clinical research, as well as a unique provider of advanced patient care, leading the industry as a front-runner in the education of health professionals. On December 6th, the new UF Health medical office opened its doors in Nassau County! According to UF Health, this is “the first step in a strategic health alliance between UF Health, the University of Florida, and Raydient Places + Properties offering high-quality health care for residents in the surrounding communities.” The building includes an urgent care center, family medicine, imaging, lab services, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and adult and pediatric dentistry. The residents of Nassau County will be among the fortunate members to receive a wide range of high-quality health care services and job opportunities.
Baptist Health is also under development in Nassau County. This new hospital and wellness facility will provide a full spectrum of in and outpatient services and 24-hour emergency care. As a result of the tireless commitment of trained doctors and nurses, Baptist Health was recognized as the only system in North Florida to receive Magnet Recognition, a program that presents attraction and retention of professional nurses. The new Baptist Health will be fully integrated within the Baptist Health hospital system delivering quality care and adding convenience to the residents of North Jacksonville.
This newly constructed rehabilitation center has served the senior residents of North Florida since its opening in March 2020 and was the first long term care facility in the state to receive Covid-19 vaccinations. The new center consists of 116 dually certified beds in 81,000 square feet and spans 10 acres in size. Services include three gyms and a therapy courtyard with an emphasis on physical, speech, and occupational therapy. Several rooms offer an oxygen delivery system. 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.
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 plays an important role in Nassau County’s medical community.
And now… there’s even a new residential community that has your healthy lifestyle at the forefront of their development.
For those new homebuyers who are focused on living a healthy lifestyle, the next exciting master-planned community is officially here. Located just west of I-95 off of SR 200, Tributary is adjacent to Tributary Park and the state-protected Four Creeks State Forest. Tributary Park just broke ground and will feature a multitude of facilities that will be open to the public. Among those are multi-purpose and baseball fields, concessions, a playground, a dog park, a boardwalk with kayak launch, and interconnected nature trails.
The design from the community includes an extensive trail system and access to the waterways for boating, kayaking, fishing, and more. “Explore More” is the mantra for residents of Tributary who will be surrounded by beautiful natural areas, great schools, historic downtowns, a wide variety of shopping, and the incredible beaches of Amelia Island.

When starting a new journey, there are many paths you can plan that could lead you to the result you desire. The same goes for those beginning the search for a new home. One path, that has gained quite a bit of admiration in recent months with home inventory shrinking, is that of buying pre-construction. Here are a few reasons why homebuyers have been trending toward purchasing pre-construction homes.
New communities with special pre-construction offerings, like Tributary in Nassau County, FL, provide incentives to pioneering homebuyers who become early adopters of the community’s lifestyle. The long-term savings are often overlooked as homebuyers don’t always recognize that new construction comes lower cost of energy and maintenance as compared to older homes. Buying early often creates instant equity. With historically low interest rates and a tight resale market, pre-construction communities are also experiencing rising demand.
In purchasing a pre-construction home, homebuyers are able to make their home truly their own. From selecting the ideal homesite, to the personalized floorplan and desired finishes. Homebuyers can put their personal stamp based on the family’s needs and desires easier with a pre-construction purchase. Tributary is located in the serene nature of Northeast Florida and boasts over 30 modern, rustic home designs to chose from. Getting in early at Tributary could mean finding your family’s next oasis.
Buying into a new community also means being pampered with today’s latest amenity trends. Developers at Tributary are meticulously designing and engineering the community’s amenities to meet the demand for outdoor activities close to home. The Lookout, the highly anticipated social club house at Tributary, will feature a resort-style pool, Adventure Zone tot-lot, state-of-the-art fitness center, an array of sports courts and entertainment areas and more. And the best part? Tributary is designed and seated in Florida’s natural environment, bringing future residents all the wondrous biodiversity, water journeys, endless trails and adventure right to their door. Residents of Tributary can explore a beautifully designed trail systems that will connect to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Park.
Like what you’ve heard about pre-construction opportunities? Although Tributary’s designer decorated models are not yet complete, the community’s new website provides a virtual digital home shopping experience for future homebuyers. This new site gives homebuyers the ability to preview select properties in a high definition interactive experience.
Tributary is a model lifestyle for tomorrow, waiting to be discovered today. Master-planned and surrounded by nature, this place will blow your river lovin’ mind! Exciting new modern-rustic homes start from the $300s.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 $300s. 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!
Rent or Buy? 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:
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.
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 $300s. You can take a look at the impressive selection of 30+ distinctively designed single-family homes here.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 $300s, 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.
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.
The 1,550-acre Tributary community can be your new hometown, and it has so much to offer. Just minutes away you can find A-rated schools, leading medical centers, beautiful beaches, historic downtowns and endless dining, culture and entertainment. And the best part? 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 of Tributary can explore a beautifully designed trail systems that will connect to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Park. Nassau County has everything you can dream of.
