It was a long and cold winter in the Lowcountry...it even snowed!  Time to put all that behind us because Spring is HERE!  We have had a stretch of absolutely gorgeous weather that can't be beat.  It just reminded me why I live here. In the world of real estate, things are "blossoming" as well.  The buyers are coming to town.  Inventory levels are down a bit...less new listings are coming on the market.  Seller confidence is slowly coming back.  The number of pending properties is more favorable than it was last year at this time.  The villa market is showing a much stronger percentage of closed properties than last year.  Are we out of the woods as far as a tough market goes?  Well, no.  But we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. With the "Selling Season" upon us, my clients a...

Open Houses in North Forest Beach, Hilton Head Island, SC There's a buzz in the North Forest Beachneighborhood!  Open Houses happening all over our community Sunday, February 28.  There are so many great buys and in our little beach-side neighborhood.  I can tell you from personal experience....."it don't get much better than this"!  You see I live in North Forest Beach and have done so for nearly 10 years.         Imagine waking up on a lazy Saturday morning, the aroma of fresh brewed coffee in the air from your just poured cup of Joe.  You throw on your shorts and head a few blocks to the beautiful North Forest Beach.  The sun is just now peeking over the horizon.  Your bride is by your side....your dog charges ahead realizing he can run and run and run.  And you think to yourself.......

Shoveling Sunshine on Hilton Head! I love calling prospects in the north after a big snow storm.  As we chat the conversation always turns to the weather.  With over 200 days of sunshine and subtropical temperatures, Hilton Head Island offers incredible weather throughout the year.  One of the best guides to our weather is The Real Seasons of Hilton Head by Todd Ballantine shown.  Not only is our weather good, we shovel a lot of sunshine all year round.  Hilton Head Island is kept warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by thermos or the ocean breezes over the warm sea(that is why you see people swimming in the ocean in January).  In fact, our moderate winter days are typically warmer than other inland southern cities.  As well winter months have less rain than the wetter summer m...

2009 ... the year that everyone was touched by the Events of October 2008   Hilton Head Island real estate has held it own in face of the most significant financial crisis over the past 80-90 years. While the nation experienced the economic down turn of 1990-1992, Hilton Head Island came into the downturn late and came out of the downturn earlier than most of the United States.   One of the principal negative factors in real estate has been the increased requirements by banks to approve mortgages, along with the use of Appraisal Management companies to appraise local property. These appraisal firms are a result of new federal laws to set up a firewall between the loan processor and the purchaser.  Appraisal Management companies are typically not located in the area and are not informed ...
