Keeping up with the neighbors is an age-old idiom that has more than one meaning if you own a second home on Hilton Head Island.  When your neighbor puts their property on the market, it has a direct impact on your property’s value. Sometimes you receive a Just Listed postcard or a Just Sold postcard---but you will not receive a mailing on a price reduction or when the property listing expired because it was priced too high. Thus, the only number you have for comparison is the Listing Price.  You can list a property at any price, but the price it sells for is really the only indicator of the market.  When we list a property for sale, we don’t give you a pie in the sky number to “win” the listing, but a realistic one of where the market is currently…

MHilton Head Beach Renourishmentother Nature has bestowed some of her finest work along the pristine shores of Hilton Head Island. Our beautiful white sand beaches are treasured, nurtured and photographed by generations of islanders and visitors alike, but we must also protect our shores.
