Getting a house ready for sale is more than dusting the furniture and mopping the floors. You have to show homebuyers what the house could look like when they put their personal touches into place. Selling a home on Hilton Head, or any other coastal area draws in sun bunnies when the weather is nice, but winter can be a challenge. Details make a difference when staging your home in colder temperatures.

Real estate, just as fashion, hair styles, technology and music, changes and evolves over time. We’re always seeking the newest, most innovative, and original ideas and implementations. These desires extend into our living spaces as well.

Hilton Head Island is known for many things--fabulous beaches, amazing golf, undisturbed nature, things to do and, last but not least, beautiful homes and villas. These homes and villas, whether primary residences, second homes or investment properties, require maintenance and updating to keep them in tip-top shape.

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

The market is stable, mortgage rates are low, the long, hard winter is over (you’ll never do that again) and you’re ready to purchase a property on Hilton Head where it’s always inviting and pleasant, whether you’re at the beach, on the course, at the garden, strolling alongside nature in the forest preserves or sipping Southern sweet tea on your back porch. You know the island, you’ve decided on a community and a price point—or maybe you aren’t quite as familiar with it as you feel you need to be and want more information on neighborhoods, pricing, etc. Either way, you know it’s where you want to be. And that’s where the professional Realtors at Lancaster Real Estate Sales (HiltonHeadHomes.com) come into the picture.

The Hilton Head Island/Bluffton housing market, known for its luxury listings and high-end trends, often blazes the trail in the What’s New and What Works category of home improvements, remodeling and upgrades.

That is to say, they are willing to pay turn-key prices for meticulous properties rather than embark on a remodeling project while living in the property or, worse, living afar.

Here you are…it’s time to move on. It’s all good…you’ve found the perfect coastal retreat, the ideal layout. Maybe it’s bigger, maybe it’s smaller; more of this, less of that. It’s a magical scenario and you’re excited about it all. The next step is to sell the place you’ve been in for years. It’s difficult to detach yourself from something you’ve known so well. Thing is, other people are going to see things you have chosen to overlook during those happy years and those wonderful collections are memories to you, but may very well be seen clutter in the eyes of those previewing your home.

There are ways to make the transition go smoothly and garner the most profit from your sale. Here are some tips to making that transition a favorable one:
