Contrary to popular belief, the off season is a great time to buy or sell vacation properties on Hilton Head Island.   Most sellers think that they need to list in the Spring and buyers often think they should plan their purchase with their summer visit.  We have listed the best reasons why the off season on Hilton Head Island is a great time to buy or sell.

Trading Places in the Off Season on Hilton Head Island 

Selling a vacation property in the off season benefits both buyers and sellers when it comes to timing.  For buyers, purchasing a vacation property in the off season affords the time to choose the best property manager or remodel without missing revenue that the busy vacation season can generate.  For sellers, selling a vacation property after the busy vacation season allows them to pocket the summer revenues and cash out before the slower season.

No One Wants to Move when it’s Hot on Hilton Head 

The off season temperatures make moving easier on Hilton Head Island.  Face it, moving is tough enough anyway.  The off season offers perfect temperatures to make a move on the Island.  The pace is slower and finding a mover is easier at this time of the year.  Although many of our vacation properties convey with furnishings, the temperatures are perfect for getting rid of the old and bringing in new.

Less Competition in the Off Season on Hilton Head

Buyers and sellers have less competition in the off season on Hilton Head Island.  For buyers, there are less buyers in the market and the chance of multiple offers is less likely.  Buyers also have a little more time to “think about it” than in the busier selling seasons.  For sellers, there are less properties listed for sale competing for the buyers attention.  Sellers that wait until spring often miss the very best timing to sell their vacation property.

More Time to Shop for Vacation Properties

During the off season, buyers and agents have more time to shop for vacation properties.  Access to properties is far easier for vacation properties in the off season than the busy rental season.  Typically during the busy summer weeks and holidays, access to all the rental properties occurs only on the turn which is Saturdays from 10 am – 4 pm.
