WATERSOUND, Fla. The St. Joe Company launched its new community this week for realtors in the area.
St. Joe officials and realtors from Walton and Bay Counties met at Origins to celebrate the launch.
Origins is based in the Watersound community in south Walton. St. Joe’s Jorge Gonzalez said the St. Joe company has been working on the project for several years. "The location is fabulous, right on 98 but still close to the beaches. So we think we will capture both, permanent residents, maybe individuals with families and also seasonal residents."
Local real estate broker Hunter Harman is pleased. "We have a very low supply of realtors in this area, and we are very excited to have a new supply to come to the market and have our prospects and have some opportunities."
Gonzalez says St. Joe had to delay its plans for Origins because of the recession.
