Our properties do not suffer from a lack of marketing and it looks like they will be cooking this summer. The virtual visitors and “traffic” is totally off the charts as we head into selling season with these great properties. We have other sites and will be adding Robbie Bunting’s Internet Marketing sites to this list, but below is the recent report on our Realtor.com, Visual Tour.com and BlogHiltonHeadRealtor.com sites. We have seen a steady increase in the amount of page views as we head into summer and sellers offering price, condition, location and access will see activity in the weeks ahead!

Hilton Head has over 2.5 million visitors annually and in the coming summer weeks we will see most of them. This year, unlike years past, we have a pent up demand and growing confidence from buyers that have been sitting on the side lines waiting for the economy to improve and their next Island visit. Based on the buyers presence on our internet sites we are going to have a very busy real estate summer. Posted below are a few preparation suggestions for our buyers, sellers and fellow agents before the summer officially begins. Read the rest of this entry

The other day a friend and fellow Realtor published on his Trulia Blog that there were only 808 homes for sale on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. When I looked at this number I started thinking about all those baby boomers getting ready to retire or moove. With 808 homes for sale it got me thinking that we are heading towards a housing shortage on Hilton Head Island.

As a mortgage lender we always order an appraisal on the homes and condos that we are financing. The appraisal is full of information about the house, the neighborhood and the overall real estate market. In one section of the appraisal there are three little boxes that pertain to the property values. The little boxes are labeled increasing, stable, and declining. Only in the last few years have we received appraisals with the “declining” box checked.

When you are new to an area, it pays to be informed. We have some tips that prospective home buyers should know especially if they are moving from another state or are first time buyers. We can provide new residents and owners a copy of our Hot Tips as they come out weekly. Too often people are fed costly lines about their systems and therefore we offer free second opinions on previously condemned systems. In most cases we can make minor repairs and save our customers thousands. Read the rest of this entry

My coach corrected me other day when I told him that we were asking some silly asking prices on some of the properties around Hilton Head and Daufuskie Island. He told me to take “silly” out of my presentation and replace it with “fair market value” I had been protecting myself and my sellers from reality by using the word “silly”. Made me think about all the sellers that had told me that they will “wait it out” because they were not going to “give” their property away. Read the rest of this entry
