Your perfect Hilton Head Island getaway is waiting for you.
Hilton Head Island in South Carolina is known as the most family-friendly destination in the world. Offering an assortment of outdoor excursions and also named as one of the top ten family beaches in the country, the Island is the perfect selection for a family vacation or getaway. Experience Hilton Head Island’s infinite opportunities and make your Island vacation an unforgettable one.

A vacation packed full of Island adventure
Hilton Head Island may only be 12 miles by 5 miles wide, but you’ll find everything you need for a perfect Island retreat. Get a little taste of everything with more than 250 Hilton Head restaurants. Play on one of the 24 Hilton Head Island golf courses that have been carved by golf’s most preeminent architect. Why not spend a day journeying through over 200 stores and outlets, looking for that unique Island souvenir? Deciding where to turn in for the night should be the least of your worries. Hilton Head Island offers an array of accommodations suited to fit every traveler’s lifestyle and budget.

Take a deep, warm Island breath
At Hilton Head Island, SC, the attention given to the environment has proudly become the blueprint for other developments around the country. During your Island retreat, notice the absence of bright streetlights and flamboyantly-painted buildings. Absorb the Island’s appreciation for the environment while you travel down 50 miles of public bike and nature trails. There’s something marvellously different about the relaxed, warm island attitude found at Hilton Head Island.

It’s time to start planning for your Hilton Head Island vacation and with our Trip Planning Resources, we’ll get you there.

See You soon..

Real estate compared to stocks…

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Food, Fun and Festivals, Market Trends and Information, Off Topic Hilton Head Area, Special Real Estate Opportunities

Where’s a better place to put your money: the stock market or real estate? These days the accepted wisdom (at least at cocktail parties) says to pick real estate. But is the accepted wisdom right? 

It is–in the short term. U.S. real estate sale prices increased more than 56% from the beginning of 1999 to the end of 2004, as tracked by the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The S&P 500 index dipped nearly 6% during that same period.   Looking at these numbers help reinforce the reasons to own and buy more Island real estate for the long term.

We are going to share the good news every chance we get.  It may not sell papers, but face it, we all could benefit from a little encouragement.   I’ve researched and prepared the table below to show residential Hilton Head MLS properties compared it to the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P.   If the chart cannot be seen on your computer, please click on the pdf above.   

The real estate market is not the stock market.  However, because the press continues to draw a correlation, we thought we would do a little comparison.  Here is what it would look like if we compare real estate to stocks. (HHMLS is Hilton Head Multiple Listing Service)

 

The silver lining right now is that our Island Real Estate market has been a better long term and more stable opportunity.  Right now with the larger Island inventory (this never gets too large as it is an Island of limited size and number of properties) to choose from and interest rates holding at historically low levels, the number of potential buyers that can find what they are looking for is at the highest level in years.  

“Buy land, homes and villas, they ain’t making anymore”   If you would like to do some research and see some incredible properties with incredible values, please click on the lighthouse above.  

I invite you to share this good news with friends and would love to hear from you anytime.

THINK Hilton Head Island Real Estate!

Best regards,
