Chosing a Home when DownsizingWhether you have lived in your current home for decades or only a year, as you get older, you may find that you have too much space.  Additionally, thanks to stairs, slippery floors, and poor central air or heating, your old home may no longer suit your needs.  As a result, many seniors are increasingly choosing to downsize.  The process of selling and buying a home is always difficult, but it can be made much easier with proper planning.  Here are some strategies that can help.

Rising home prices, higher interest rates and increased building material costs have pressured housing affordability to a ten-year low, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Keen market observers have been watching this situation take shape for quite some time. Nationally, median household income has risen 2.6% in the last 12 months, while home prices are up 6.0%. That kind of gap will eventually create fewer sales due to affordability concerns, which is happening in several markets, especially in the middle to high-middle price ranges.August 2018

 

New Listings were up 28.9 percent to 674. Pending Sales increased 10.9 percent to 490, the seventh consecutive month of year-over-year gains. Inventory grew 1.3 percent to 2,250 units.

July 2018 Market Report

Housing price bubble chatter has increased this summer, as market observers attempt to predict the next residential real estate shift. It is too early to predict a change from higher prices and lower inventory, but the common markers that caused the last housing cooldown are present. Wages are up but not at the same pace as home prices, leading to the kind of affordability concerns that can cause fewer sales at lower prices. At the same time, demand is still outpacing what is available for sale in many markets.

New Listings were up 7.6 percent to 541. Pending Sales increased 25.4 percent to 519. Inventory shrank 5.9 percent to 2,161 units. Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 2.8 percent to $298,158. Days on Market decreased 17.8

Just like last year at this time, prospective home buyers should expect a competitive housing market for the next several months. With payrolls trending upward and unemployment trending downward month after month in an extensive string of positive economic news, demand remains quite strong. Given the fact that gradually rising mortgage rates often infuse urgency to get into a new home before it costs more later, buyers need to remain watchful of new listings and make their offers quickly.

history of tennis on hilton head island, sc

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who know the history of tourism, recreation and retirement on our piece of paradise known as Hilton Head Island, that tennis was launched as a serious participant in the menu of sports activities at Sea Pines Plantation.

Originally, Charles E. Fraser, the developer of Sea Pines Plantation included courts as another recreational amenity like golf, fishing, biking and kayaking. That all changed in 1971, fifteen years after Fraser offered up his plans for the spectacular community and resort, which included the fledgling Sea Pines Racquet Club.

In that year Stan Smith—the top-ranked player in the world—joined The Sea Pines Resort as its touring pro, lending enormous credibility to the fledgling racquet club.

discovery museumThere is a destination on Hilton Head Island that combines education, amusement, beauty and several unusual activities for all ages. It is a place of wonder and delight.

It is the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn.

To understand how unique the Coastal Discovery Museum is, it is important to understand not only the history of the museum but to grasp the fact that the museum celebrates the history of the Carolina Lowcountry on a preserve carved out of a plantation that was part of that history.

Honey Horn plantation, is located along Jarvis Creek, a tributary of Calibogue Sound. The plantation, which was originally (around 1805) 13,000 acres of cotton and rice, has experienced the changes brought about by war, economics and development over

In the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area of South Carolina, golf is not a pastime, hobby or casual sport.

Golf is a passion. Lowcountry Golf

The debate among our golfers and our golf course managers is a simple one, but one that continues to go un-resolved; “Which came first, the passionate golfers or the world class golf courses?” 

Whichever side of the discussion you may favor, the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area of South Carolina is a golfer’s dream. 

Hilton Head Island & Bluffton: A Golfer's Paradise

Bluffton/Hilton Head Island encompasses an area of less than 125 square miles and is called home by under 60,000 full time residents, yet, there are over forty golf courses for the enjoyment of our ‘passionate golfers’, over thirty of which
