hilton head islandWe all know real estate is local—and unique. No matter the city, town or island, each parcel of land, condo, villa, townhouse and home is different. Ergo, trends in San Francisco or Miami or New York City or Aspen do not translate to what is happening on Hilton Head Island with regard to real estate pricing or sales momentum. They just don’t.

hilton head island real estateOwning a beach house or vacation villa on Hilton Head Island has always been in fashion and good taste, regardless of the trends of the time. Fashion, food, colors, cars—even real estate—follows trends, but Hilton Head real estate has consistently led the way in luxury homes, villas, and income-producing properties thanks to far-reaching and clear vision of the island’s early developers and designers. Determined to create a lasting luxury destination separate and apart from the more famous and trendy hot spots of the time, these early futurists were intent on building on what Mother Nature had endowed the island with rather than reinventing what was naturally available: the ocean and the lush landscape.
