The latest stats are in. Through November the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton area is again the #1 real estate market in South Carolina. And it has been #1 for 21 straight months.  

According to the South Carolina Association of Realtors, the number of our real estate transactions is up 8.2% over last year, which is twice the increase of the #2 market, Charleston. In fact, sales in the Hilton Head area are at the highest level in five years.

One of the axioms in real estate is, "All real estate is local," which means that each real estate market in America is unique. Some markets are cold. Some cool. Some holding steady. Some warm. Some warmer. [None are hot right now.] The Hilton Head area is the "warmest" market in South Carolina and one of the "warmest" in the Southeast.

Many of our clients want to know if the market here has stabilized. Click here to get a current update on our real estate market.

If you ever want to own in the area, this winter literally may be the best time EVER to purchase. Take a good look around here on our MLS website, pick out some properties of interest and email or call us with your questions or plans for a visit.
