Did you know there is an ownership program set up on Hilton Head Island that offers multiple weeks of use per year?  This ownership offers 1/5th deeded interest and it is completely hassle free.  We had a client purchase this type of ownership to experience all four seasons before purchasing a full time residence, one couple gave each of their children two weeks to use every year with their families, and other couples have used theirs to escape winter every year.  Prices currently start in the $30,000’s for 10 weeks(1/5 deeded ownership).  What could you do with 10 weeks a year on the Island?

  1. Hilton Head IslandHilton Head is easy to get to and from!  A client told me the other day told that they were looking at places far away, but came back to Hilton Head Island because they would use it more.  I am sure there is a point of diminishing return when you factor distance to use.  Click here to read driving distances to Hilton Head from many cities.  On top of that, with two convenient airports, Hilton Head Island is one of the easiest Island’s to travel to or from.
  2. Hilton Head’s weather is subtropical!  The Island is kept warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by ocean breezes over the warm sea(that is why you see people swimming in the ocean in January).  In fact, our moderate winter days are typically warmer than other inland southern cities.  Winter months offer sub tropical temperatures that are perfect for snowbirds or vacationers looking for a warm weather escape.
  3. Hilton Head is surrounded by beauty and amenities! With 53 miles of bike pathways, 12 miles of beaches, 24 Championship Golf Courses,  260 + tennis courts Chaplan Park, Crossings Park, 1300 acres of land owned parks, some of the best things about living on Hilton Head Island is the natural beauty that we never take for granted.
  4. Hilton Head offers small town living with big city benefits!  Hilton Head Island’s year round population is just under 40,000, but the Island offers incredible restaurants, a great hospital, airport, library, sensational shopping, fabulous grocery stores and even a PGA golf tournament.
  5. Hilton Head is in the center of everything!  Hilton Head is located in the geographic center of Beaufort, Savannah, and Charleston.  These historical cities are easy day trips from Hilton Head Island.  As well, living on an Island that is 5 miles x 12 miles, one is never far from anything.
  6. Hilton Head has happy people living here!  Hilton Head is a lifestyle choice as very few are ever transferred to the Island for their work.  That and over 200+ days of sunshine really make Islanders a very happy bunch.  They say hello when they are out and even may waive when they drive by.
  7. Hilton Head has great festivals and events!  The Island festivals include Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter events that make Island living fun.  You can also visit the chamber’s  festival calendar to see what is going on anytime of the year.
  8. Hilton Head appeals to all!  Great schools attract the families, warm weather and great amenties attract the retiree and second home owner and for the professional(doctors, teachers and business) Hilton Head offers a high quality lifestyle near the beach.

  10. Hilton Head still offers the best things for free(or almost free)  Soaking up sun on the beach, enjoying a sunset over the water, paddling a kayak, a rusty bike ride, a dip in the ocean, sitting under a moss covered oak, counting the stars and enjoying the colors in the October sky, walking the beach are all of the best reasons to live on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

HHI – Why do a CL-100?

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Hilton Head Business Partners, Property Condtion, Taxes, Insurance and Ownership Expenses

Imperial Pest“Why do I need a CL100 when I buy or sell a home or villa on Hilton Head?” I’m not sure where the name comes from, but a smarter title, which appears on the report itself, “OFFICIAL SOUTH CAROLINA WOOD INFESTATION REPORT”, makes alot more sense.  During a sale of structural property in South Carolina involving a lending institution, the CL-100 will usually be a mandatory report at closing.  In most conventional cases, the seller is responsible for the CL-100.  A thorough, professional inspection is part of every CL100. The report will point out any water-damage issues, however small they may be.  It’s important to know that the CL-100 will only report water and fungal damage that is “below the first main floor”.

Safe Surf on Hilton Head

Hilton Head’s Beaches offer two body guards that are sandbars on each end of the Island.  Joiner Banks on the north and Gaskin Banks on the south catch the really bad stuff before it hits the shores.  These two sandbars come together about a mile offshore and help make our waters both swimmer and child friendly.  No matter the age from toddler to elderly, sitting in the Hilton Head surf brings smiles.
