 Hilton Head Home Sales Pace  The race is heating up in Hilton Head Real Estate! Will 2013 turn out to be the best year for Hilton Head home sales in all of Hilton Head real estate history?

While it is impossible to say for certain, all of the expert Realtors at Hilton Head Real Estate Search feel that the time is ripe to break past records. Right now, the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort Multiple Listing Service's (MLS) best year in home sales was 2005; however, the first six months of 2013 are only 14 sales away from topping the 2005 numbers. Currently, the Hilton Head Island area MLS is experiencing its best year in 8 years and the current pace of home sales have us confident that we will, indeed, either end up the year as the best year in the history of the Hilton Head Island Area, or be in a very close second place.
