Bluffton, SC (April 19, 2011) – Hampton Lake is helping dispel the notion that resort style living is financially out of reach with the creation of a “Cost of Lake Living Calculator”.

The web based calculator allows prospective home buyers to submit their desired square footage along with their desired purchase price and estimated loan information. The website then calculates the approximate taxes, insurance premiums, utility payments and more, making it easy for buyers to make informed comparisons.

The “Cost of Lake Living Calculator” was the inspiration of the community’s sales team and Gerrit Albert, president of Hampton Lake. “This is the kind of information that buyers most often ask about, and we felt it would be a very useful tool for people considering a home in our area,” said Albert. “From vacation getaway homes to luxurious primary residences, the cost of owning a lakefront home here has never been more affordable and this calculator really helps illustrate this value in a very tangible way.”

Home buyers can access the “Cost of Lake Living” calculator by going to a special website:
