Hilton Head Island Beaches

I have lived near the Atlantic Ocean all my life.

The beaches I have walked can be found within the borders of every state from Maine to Florida and I have enjoyed them all. However, when I first set foot on the sandy shores of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina I knew I had found a magical place.

From that day forward I told anyone who would listen, Hilton Head beaches were the most amazing on the eastern seaboard…and then I received the surprise that altered that bragging claim, (I live minutes from the Hilton Head beaches).

In October, mortgage rates increased slightly from the three-year lows seen in September. While the Federal Reserve reduced the federal-funds target rate by .25%, this decline was widely expected and largely factored into mortgage rates already, which are still approximately 1% lower than this time last year. Fannie Mae is predicting that continued low rates, and possibly lower rates, are expected in 2020.

New Listings were down 0.1 percent to 673. Pending Sales increased 18.2 percent to 500. Inventory shrank 9.6 percent to 2,166 units.

One of the many attributes of the marvelous South Carolina Lowcountry that visitors and new residents of the area find fascinating is the area’s history.

You can stroll down the lanes of large and small communities, drop into a fifty-year-old restaurant or spend a few hours inside a 177-year-old home. Once in this residence you will experience the culture and history of Bluffton, from inside one of the few structures left standing after the end of the Civil War.

For those who enjoy ‘feeling’ history, visiting some of the historic sites in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island, the experience is sometimes a bit surreal, like being transported back in time 100, 200 or even 300 years.

Now let your imagination run a little wild and envision living in a

sun city hilton head entry gate, south carolina

Renovations to the common areas in Sun City continue just as the Lowcountry begins to have that nip of Fall in the air. This is the time of year when residents begin considering a move before the holidays arrive. Some need more space and others begin to downsize. In either situation, there are a few items to consider when choosing real estate on the north side or the south side of Sun City.

Which Is The Right Choice For Me?

The original neighborhoods on the south side of Highway 278 are very established with mature landscaping and many of the amenities available to all residents. The north side is a bit newer and the houses have updated floor plans and styles.

Some of the considerations include homeowner dues, taxes and home amenities that

September 2019 Market Overview

With the kids back in school and the weather cooling, the housing market begins its annual cooldown as well. Nationally, buyer and seller activity remained strong, buoyed by low mortgage rates and a strong economy. The market fundamentals suggest no significant changes from recent trends, other than the seasonally tempered pace we see this time of year. As we move into the final three months of 2019, buyers will find fewer homes coming on the market, but also less competition for those homes.

New Listings were up 7.9 percent to 476. Pending Sales increased 41.8 percent to 451. Inventory shrank 8.6 percent to 2,133 units.

Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 4.8 percent to $325,000. Days on Market increased 8.5 percent to 141 days.

fertilizing South Carolina lawn

That green, healthy grass on your South Carolina property doesn’t grow overnight. It takes persistence, patience, and proper care. Preparing your lawn for the fall and winter will help it thrive in spring and summer.

With average high temperatures in the upper 50s in winter and low 90s in summer, the area gets less than 6 inches of rain each month. Keeping the grass trimmed, well-hydrated, weed-free, and fertilized in the fall will help your lawn thrive. Fall is a good time to get South Carolina yard grass ready for cooler temperatures.

Here's a guide on how to prepare your lawn for fall in South Carolina:

Know Your Grass

Warm-season grasses are suitable for South Carolina. Chances are, your yard contains one or more of these types:

August 2019 Hilton Head Area Market IndicatorAs the summer draws to a close, multiple opposing factors and trends are competing to define the direction of the real estate market. After the Federal Reserve lowered its benchmark interest rate on July 31, 30-year mortgage rates continued to decline, approaching all-time lows last seen in 2016. Yet most experts agree these reductions are unlikely to bring sufficient relief, at least in the short term, for first-time home buyers. The lack of affordable inventory and the persistence of historically high housing prices continue to affect the housing market, leading to lower-than-expected existing home sales at the national level.

New Listings were down 11.0 percent to 600. Pending Sales increased 16.2 percent to 510. Inventory shrank 6.5 percent to
