Sun City Hilton Head June 2013 Market Report Here's the flip side of the market. Contributing to the economic engine for Bluffton is Sun City Hilton Head. With over 5000 homes currently, and more planned by Del Webb/Pulte this burgeoning community is growing as fast as the developer can build. With a location equidistant to Savannah, Beaufort, and to Hilton Head, Sun City is definitely a roaring lion. Its over 400 clubs, 3 pools, 2 golf courses, makes the active Sun City lifestyle highly desirable. Many residents participate in the national Senior Olympics and the softball teams have won regional championships. At the moment there are only 85 homes on the market with an average list price of $259,343. This drives traffic to new home construction which too is booming in Sun City.       ...

The Hilton Head Island and Sun City, SC real estate market continues to exceed national trends and averages. Why? Aside from the quality of life and natural beauty our island has to offer, there are several advantages our local economy will continue to thrive on as it has in the current state of our national economy.Sun City Hilton Head, Bluffton and Beaufort County are target markets for the near 80 million baby boomers that will retire over the next 15-20 years.

The state of Wall Street has many people wondering what will happen to their Real Estate market. The truth is, it's still too early to tell and anyone who says different is just jumping to conclusions. These are trying times on Wall Street. It's hard to get a grip on what's happening with financial firms, the government and how this will affect us and the Real Estate market. Institutions are going bankrupt, write downs, and mergers. It's a little scary. That said, consider history and consider, "Who's your Daddy?" Real Estate!What do people do when there's no where to invest in the stock market? They buy Real Estate. What do people do when interest rates are at historical lows? They buy Real Estate. What do people do when prices of Real Estate are at bargain prices? They buy Real Estate...

Unfortunately some seem to think Sun City folks are a bunch of old foogies who sit on their duffs and do nothing but eat and sleep. Nothing could be further from the truth. The only place they may be sitting is atop a motorbike. So here is the poster lady for Sun City: Joan Cooper is a California transplant who was leaving--of all places--the Woodworking shop--more on that in a minute-- By the way, Sun City Hilton Head has about 100 clubs and special interest groups-- including a motorcycle club with some bikes that are much more menacing than the scooter above-- Now, about that woodworking shop-- it is not just some tiny shed.  It's about 10,000 square feet. And, there's some serious equipment in there and 600 members who really know what they're doing. If you want to know more about S...
