Thinking of buyimg a new home?  New homes certainly have a lot of eye candy and are very visually appealing - like the model homes that have been designor staged, all the new appliances, and let's not forget all the cool new upgrades. Plus, with everything being new you shouldn't have any major home repairs right away like a new roof or new HVAC.

If you’re wondering whether or not you need a REALTOR® when buying a new construction home, the answer is a definite YES.  We have a great brochure on how agency works in South Carolina, but the simple answer is the on-site agents work for the developer / builder.  They are helpful and usually know a lot about the builder and the features of the home, but you're going to want your own expert, someone who is…

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…

Election Year Real Estate MarketHow will the outcome of this Presidential election affect housing? The research all points to positives. The Meyers Research group looked at the past 13 election cycles and found an approximate 15% drop in sales activity in the November of a federal election year. But their research notes that “the year after a presidential election is the best of the four-year cycle.” Furthermore, the report states, “This suggests that demand for new housing is not lost because of election uncertainty, rather it gets pushed out to the following year as long as the economy stays on track.”
