Rainy days are great days to curl up with a good book on Hilton Head Island, but they are also the best days for looking at real estate.  The reasoning behind this is that if you like a property on a rainy day, you are going to love it when the sun comes out.  If you are serious about finding the perfect property, contact one of our agents on the next rainy day.  We will even provide umbrellas, raincoats and galoshes!  We want to be your everyday and Rainy Day Realtor!



How to Make a Wants Vs. Needs List for Your Home Search

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Hilton Head Main

It’s spring, which means home buying season has officially arrived! If you’re on the hunt for a new home in the Hilton Head area, chances are you’ve already thought about the features you’d like to have.

However, one important part of searching for homes is making a distinction between your needs and your wants. Needs are amenities or features you can’t live without, while wants are things that you’d like to have (but they ultimately wouldn’t affect your home buying decision too much).

Two-story suburban home with a large garage and grey shutters.Ideally, you’ll want to come up with this list of needs (e.g. 3 bedrooms, under $500k, close to the marina) and wants (e.g. fiber internet connection, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets) before you start looking for homes. This will save you time along the way as you browse dozens, maybe hundreds, of homes online or in person.

Here’s a guide for distinguishing between your wants and needs: Read the rest of this entry

Hilton Head Island, SC ~ Sweet Tea and Moon Pies

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Communities and Areas, Hilton Head Main

Even your agent may not be familiar with this community.  There are no golf courses inside the gates, no tennis courts, no marinas, no shops or restaurants, just a Low Country lifestyle everyone dreams of.  Inside the gates you will discover beautiful homes with picket fences, a relaxed pace with its resident owl, bald eagles and osprey.  What you will discover at The Paddocks is a way of life that is not like the others, but true to itself.

“Do Drop In” at The Paddocks

Join us every Thursday for our “Do Drop In” at the pool pavilion at The Paddocks from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.  We will provide liquid refreshments including “sweet tea” and moon pies(for the kids in all of us).  Most likely you see some old friends, Realtors, builders, architects and neighbors from around the Island that you haven’t seen in awhile.  Of course, no sales pitch, just some collateral material, some sweet tea and the opportunity to visit and discover one of the best places in our corner of the world.

Living is easy at The Paddocks

The architecture expresses what living in the South is all about.  Metal Roofs, screen doors slamming, exposed rafter tails, big rockers on a covered porch and outdoor socials around a firepit.  The big private home sites overlook marshes, forests, water and sunsets.  Over 60% of this community sold out a few years ago. The prevailing breezes make this a place where you want to sit and drink up the cool air because this property sits on a Penninsula on Hilton Head Island surrounded by water.

The Paddocks Properties

With new homes starting at $549,900 and home sites starting at $69,900, The Paddocks offers great value and selection in today’s Hilton Head Island real estate market.  Of course, because this community and all the properties are 100% debt free, the developer can be very creative for a family that builds right away.  Even investors should inquire about a subordination that may be offered.  Add it all up and come visit at our “Do Drop In” this Thursday to see for yourself.  For more information, please email us.

Half Backs on Hilton Head Island

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Hilton Head Business Partners

As a teenager, I visited the Island in 70’s with my family. We all fell in love with the charm of the Island and one by one we all moved our families here.  Visitors just like my family are doing the same thing.  They have been visiting the Island for vacation and are returning to the Island when they are ready for a change in lifestyle.  It is familiar and comfortable.  These visitors are creating market trends that are fairly predictable which include Half Backs, Be Backs, Boomers and the upcoming Generations X & Y.
