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. The problem with the present real estate market is too often we lose the proper perspective by looking at the forest and not the trees. 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
America’s economy moves when real estate sells. It is that simple. In every economic downturn, real estate has turned it around. Of course real estate is selling again, but not fast enough. One way to really super charge this economy is to refer your local Realtor or Hilton Head Realtor to just five buyers and sellers. By referring a real estate agent, you will now be fueling the economy with new buyers or sellers and taking charge of our countries future. The nice thing about referring a real estate agent on Hilton Head Island is that not everyone has one and many dream of someday owning property in a beautiful sub-tropical area like this.
What can you do to help the Hilton Head economy turn around?
Your real estate agent probably spends more time prospecting than actual selling today and we all need to be out selling more. Buyers used to be easy to find, however now with the internet they are harder than ever for agents to identify and to help. If you were to send your agent just five(5) new e-mail contacts from your sphere of influence, you would be giving this country a big boost and speed up the process. Whether it is contacts from work, church, school, family, the club or acquaintances this grass roots move will help this economy move faster and forward. It is really that simple. Thank you.
Do you dream of living on Hilton Head Island? Are you budget conscious? Good news! Iit is now cheaper to own a home rather than renting a similar home on Hilton Head Island. Based on the low mortgage costs and the attractive pricing the Island offers, the buyer in our example saved approximately 12% extra* per month. With the rising costs of rents and a limited availability of good rental properties, future residents should consider buying property rather than renting a property in the current market.
