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. Though exceptional in their own right, they have a different base with differing desires. Yes, they too are high-end vacation destinations with breathtaking views and luxury amenities and, yes, they too attract a discriminating, educated buyer. However, the comparison stops there. Even closer and seemingly more similar locales such as St. Simons Island or Amelia Island (alike only in that they are islands) are also

Paradise found! A beautiful home on Hilton Head Island with secret gardens filled with Confederate Jasmine just steps from a sun-soaked, white-sand beach. A magical scenario, to be sure. Some would call it bewitching, yet it exists for the asking. Wooden rope swings in the back yard, pine-planked wraparound porches, open-air dining, four-season outdoor havens with tabby fireplaces and oversized chef’s grills, pool torches glowing in the dusk.

When you think of Hilton Head, you probably think of miles of white sandy beaches. No? Well, maybe world-class golf and the PGA Heritage Tournament every Spring.
