From Island Packet: “You can reserve a Margaritaville Hilton Head home soon. Here’s how much $$ you’ll drop”
Longtime Jimmy Buffett fans or folks who just like the singer’s vibe are days away from a peek inside a new Margaritaville-themed residential community being built in Hardeeville. And if they’re ready, they can make a deposit on a home.
Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head’s sales center opens Feb. 17, according to Bill Bullock, senior vice president at Minto Communities, a residential building group that’s partnered with commercial developer Sutton Properties Inc. and Buffett’s Margaritaville brand to bring the community to Jasper County.
On that day, Bullock said, prospective buyers — aged 55 and up — can put money down to reserve a lot and home of their choice, or they can forgo a deposit and just get a feel for the place. Whatever they decide to do, they can to set up a March 10 follow-up appointment with a contractor to talk about construction, he said.
But it will be “first come, first serve” Feb. 17, Bullock said. And while there’s no pressure to make a financial commitment during the ensuing “preview period” through March 10, he said, people who don’t make a deposit might not get the lot they want.
Deposits will cost $10,000, Bullock said. They are refundable until the final contract is signed March 10. Homes in the community will range from the “mid-$200,000s to upper-$300,000s,” he said.
