The window of opportunity for trades is not forever.  Trades have flourished in this market because sellers are looking for creative alternatives to reducing expenses or want to move up.
The key to a succesful trade is to negotiate the difference.  It really does not matter what the selling prices are once you have arrived at the difference.  This can be established from a recent appraisal or even fair comps from 2 years ago.  The difference is the difference.  Here is a list of trade properties.  Please email me if you have a property in mind that you would like to trade.  Thank you.

Want acreage? Developer ready or farm?

This is 21 acres of the prettiest land you will ever see!  This land was a horse100_71072 farm in its past with 3 stocked fishing lagoons and a big restored stable.  Recently it has been approved by Beaufort County for 42 home sites that range from 1/2 acre to 1 acre.   The county has run the water/sewer access to the Stillwell Road property line on the New Riverside side of the property.

The location is in the geographic center of Savannah, Hilton Head Island and Beaufort.  It is just down the street from Hero’s on Horseback on Stillwell Road located on Hwy 46 just outside of Bluffton.  If you get to the circle you have gone too far. You will see the signs at the end of Stillwell Road.

Of course, there are many ways the land can be used.  If you are a builder these 42 lots are a great plan for the future(get 10 of your friends together and each take four lots for a total of $150,000 each) or if you want to buy it sell them off individually this is a great plan for the developer or if you just want to build a house and live there this is ready for the nature lover(you could even subdivide it into larger parcels).  The entire parcel complete with all the due diligence and permitting. CLICK HERE FOR ~ 121 Stillwell Plantation Flyer

Take a Sunday drive out and see this incredible land anytime as no-one lives on it…yet! The roads and access are fine. If you wish, call me first for directions, otherwise just stop by anytime.

Happy exploring.

P.S.  Let me know if you would like a printable flyer that we can email to you.  Just send me an email at requesting same.
