Buying Property in the Hilton Head Area

The Hilton Head Island/Bluffton/Beaufort area is the kind of place that sells itself. The area's famous beaches, great year-round great climate, and dozens of attractive, carefully planned communities make quality of life here a sure bet. New residents are attracted here from all over the country. Hilton Head's popularity has also helped produce a thriving real estate market, and enabled builders to construct homes and condos to suit every taste. No matter what kind of property you're seeking, you'll find here a plethora of superlative choices.

But that plethora can be a problem. After meeting literally thousands of people and going through the discovery process with them, we have discovered their big question is almost always, "Which of all these wonderful communities should we focus on?" At first blush it seems there is a dizzying array of choices and there are, in fact, more options all the time. Existing home, new home, buy a lot and build "down the road", condominium, view, Island or Mainland location, amenities? The choices are dazzling. All of these things make up the fabric of a decision, a choice. So. Where to begin?

The "Which" is Determined by the "What"

We have found that is is wise to spend some quality time with a professional "listening" Realtor, who will diligently listen to understand your unique needs and dreams, thus determining "what" kind of lifestyle you want to enjoy here. You'll discuss with your Realtor what you like to do recreationally and socially. What hobbies and leisure activities are your "cup of tea". If you're working, how close to work you'd like to be. Who will be visiting and what to they like to do recreationally.

Once you've discussed questions like these, selecting"which" communities are "matches" for you almost magically emerges out of your dialogue. We can't overemphasize how important this phase is. You don't want to waste time looking at properties in communities that don't fit you "hand in glove". Or worse, you don't want to choose a house, lot or villa discovering months later, another community would have been a better match for you.

How "Representation" Saves You $'s

Today in South Carolina we have new laws that allow a Realtor to represent you the buyer. The advantages are numerous. You have a professional who has knowlege of the best values and future trends, and who daily "eats, drinks and breathes" the MLS database. As you compare the best buys, she'll provide you with important information about the home, its neighborhood, zoning issues, utilities, and nearby plans for development. And your Realtor often has knowledge that can help you negotiate an even more impressive deal.

There's nothing like a professional, knowledgeable, ethical personal advocate ... at no cost! If you'd like to discuss having us represent you, contact us and tell us what you're looking for.
