Choosing a Home Site On Hilton Head

The first step in planning a new home on Hilton Head is choosing a home-site. Factors to consider when choosing a site include picking the community that offers the amenities that are important to you,  determining the building envelope with the setback requirements, Architectural Requirements(ARB) that determine style and size of the new homes and the covenants-restrictions.  All of these are easily found through your local REALTOR.

Meeting Hilton Head Builders

Once you own a home-site, area builders will begin courting you through the mail. They will send you information about their company and the building process. It’s a great way to get to know the area builders in the Hilton Head Area.  There is also the Homebuilders Association of Hilton Head which offers resources, vendors, architects  and member builder information.

Walking through Model Homes on Hilton Head

One of the favorite past times for home site owners is to walk through model homes and homes in their neighborhood under construction.  Some of the latest designs and trends can be found in the models at The Paddocks, Salt Creek Landing,  Hampton Lake, Palmetto Bluff, May River Preserve and new homes are popping up all over the Island.

Start your Hilton Head Dream Book 

If you own a home site or are planning on buying a home site it is never too early to  start a dream book(file) for planning your new home.   This file can include the plat of the property, the tree and topo, letters from local builders, pages from home magazines with features you want and floorplans.
