Are you looking at owning and managing rental properties on Hilton Head with a long-term view? You will rarely increase the value of your rental property investment over the short term. Increased wealth comes from growth in equity that typically occurs over time. Ensuring long-term appreciation should be your first consideration when deciding which property to buy. Location, location, location may be an overused term, but it still holds true. You can change virtually everything about the property except its location. Be wary of buying a property in a high vacancy location or in areas that are declining economically or aesthetically. Although you can improve many aspects of the property, you may want to stay away from houses that require comprehensive repairs. You can get these “fixer-uppers” for a discounted price, but the money you save often won’t cover the cash required to make the property presentable. Read the rest of this entry

Whatever power decided to start naming winter storms, sure helped our real estate business on Hilton Head. When we were kids, getting 3 feet of snow never got this attention, but who is complaining. Snow birds are flocking to Hilton Head this year and while they are renting places, the sunny warmer weather, swaying palms and moon beams are motivating them to buy.
“Why do I need a CL100 when I buy or sell a home or villa on Hilton Head?” I’m not sure where the name comes from, but a smarter title, which appears on the report itself, “OFFICIAL SOUTH CAROLINA WOOD INFESTATION REPORT”, makes alot more sense. During a sale of structural property in South Carolina involving a lending institution, the CL-100 will usually be a mandatory report at closing. In most conventional cases, the seller is responsible for the CL-100. A thorough, professional inspection is part of every CL100. The report will point out any water-damage issues, however small they may be. It’s important to know that the CL-100 will only report water and fungal damage that is “below the first main floor”.
