Contrary to popular belief, summer is not the biggest selling season on Hilton Head Island.  While the Island is busier, the agenda for families visiting Hilton Head during the summer is rest, relaxation and time with their families.  Even if they are considering buying property in the area, their family time is too valuable to go real estate shopping.  This also gives them a good excuse to return again in the fall!
