Most purchasers would rather drive by a property before ever calling a real estate agent.  Now with the internet, purchasers and agents can save gas, money and time. In fact, purchasers can now stand on the street with Google Earth,  they can map the location with our MLS, they can take  a visual tour of the property and they can even review comparables without ever leaving their home or office.  We have found because information travels so fast that the first thing to do once you discover a property you like on the internet is to notify your Hilton Head REALTOR ASAP.

A great property will wait for no one!

Last week, we had one Hilton Head purchaser that was talking to the bank and doing all of the due diligence to buy a specific property, but they had not called their REALTOR to even let them know they liked the property.  Had the purchaser called their REALTOR they may been able to formulate an offer with a financing contingency and beat the other offers to the table.  In fact, we had several buyers turn up after this property went into pending.  It had been available for months, but for some reason all the buyers hovered and stayed stealth.  Buyers today may be missing a very important step in the home purchasing process.
