NatureWalk at Watersound Origins recently hosted a grand opening for VIP homebuyers.

New construction homes are selling quickly at NatureWalk at Watersound Origins, an active lifestyle community in Northwest Florida near Panama City. The community hosted a grand opening to their VIP list and immediately sold more than 50 homes. NatureWalk is part of the Watersound Origins master-planned community developed by The St. Joe Company.

Getting on the VIP list was as easy as registering online, where interested buyers could view floor plans and find out more about the community and the area. The Kolter Homes community has recently opened sales to the general public, hosting an official grand opening earlier in February.

“We are excited for these founding residents to experience and enjoy all NatureWalk will offer," said Kolter Homes Community Director Todd Schermerhorn in a statement.

"Our team, the professionals at St. Joe, and everyone involved put tremendous effort into bringing NatureWalk to the Watersound Origins community," said Mr. Schermerhorn in a statement about the grand opening. "The experience Kolter has gained over the last six years in this market gives us a deep appreciation for what new home shoppers are looking for.”
