When times were flush pre-2008, many people saw opportunities to get good — and sometimes great — returns by investing in one of the many developments in the Bluffton area.
Hampton Lake LLC, which recently filed for bankruptcy protection, was one of those developments.
It was an attractive investment for a number of reasons. The community was billed as a lake community, that is, it centered around a 165-acre freshwater fishing and boating lake. It was also special because the many family-friendly, resortstyle amenities were built before houses started going up. There’s a beach, boating, parks, tennis, camping, a spa, a fitness center, nature trails and more.
