Chateau 30A is such a cheesy name. Trying too hard.
Could you give a few examples of this habitual behavior?
Sounds like a nice upscale development. But I agree beach access is a big problem in this area.
The county was proposing developing the beautiful access down Lakewood next to Dunes of Seagrove with parking and toilets.
This would be the best closest access but would require hopping in a car or golfcart.
However the last I heard residents in the area blocked this project.
The access at the outflow of Eastern lake is closest but often is difficult to access due to the channel running throught it.
However neither of these is really walking distance if you want to carry beach gear.
When Watersound Beach was first being marketed, the St. Joe sales agents represented that the Beach Club would be a homeowner amenity. When they filed the preliminary application to bu led the Beach Club, they represented to Walton County that the Beach Club would be turned over to the community. Ultimately, they never turned the facility over. Most recently, they made representations trying to convince people to hire them to manage their rentals, and then when the agreements arrived, they were substantially different.
understand if saint joe doesn't rent your property then your guest can't use facilities. That's what I've been told.
Would St Joes Water Color also be this bad?
That is exactly correct. If you previously paid $20,000 for a membership, your guests can no longer use the facilities unless you fire your current company, hire St. Joe instead (paying them 30% of the gross with the renters paying an additional 10% amenity fee). If you resign your membership, you can only get your initiation fee back after they sell four brand new social memberships. Sales are so bad at this point that based on what they sold in 2013, it will take our neighbor, who just quit, two years to get his money back, and he still has to pay monthly dues for another year even though he already resigned. Even though they are giving away free memberships to the next 60 people that buy homes at Watersound North, they are taking the position that these are not sales, so do not count towards the waiting list of people that have already resigned and are waiting for their money back. Buyer beware when dealing with anything associated with St. Joe.
I find it interesting that it's still showing as bank owned. Nothing on the clerks site either unless they're really backed up.
Thanks Coondog. I was unaware of the requirement of social sales prior to refund. I have been considering resigning my membership. I dont think my original contract ever said anything about that?? I'll have to look at it closer.
Still bank owned, perhaps a scam?
Any new info on this pre-sale?
Because county records aren't updated you conclude it may be a scam?
Heard they have 6 reservation @$10,000.00 each.
Real Estate closings show up on the clerks office within 24 hours of the sale. The property appraisers office does take longer. At this point I can't find a sale on either. Isn't selling something you don't own considered a scam?
You in the market for a bridge?
I'm not sure taking reservations to sell something is the same as selling something so it's not a scam.
And certainly not illegal.
don't know if pre buyers got refunded.....BUT.......their sign is GONE.... So is the project I guess
I did see the signs laying in the grass yesterday.
