Good Morning from Sea Pines

Chilly but beautiful December beach sunrise at Sea Pines Beach Club, Hilton Head Island, SC.

Had a busy morning work wise and also with taking a continuing education course.   But I find there is nothing better to focus and energize me for the day, than taking a moment to breathe and enjoy the view.   That’s especially important here in the lowcountry, as I realize that is why people want to mover here and buy real estate.

What do you think helps you to focus?

Monthly Report from the Hilton Head Island Area Market

Thought some of you, like me, might like the real report on the area market, in that link above. So many times when you ask an agent, “how is the market doing?”  They simply respond, “Great!”  Well, it actually is going pretty well but it’s a bit more complicated than that.

Prices are up a median of 5.4%.   That’s good news.  Pending sales are up 4%.  Also good news.  BUT…  (there’s always a but, isn’t there?)…. New listings are down 10.1% and overall inventory is down 7.2%.

However a lot of that inventory is out of the price point that buyers are looking in (under $300K).    We still have plenty of options at over $500K that are still drastically reduced from pre-recession days.   There are still GREAT deals.

But we are facing an affordable housing shortage for relocating hospitality workers, school teachers, healthcare providers, fire and police officers, and more that will keep our community vibrant and functioning.

If you have a home in good condition available in the under $300,000 price range, I’d love to assist you in that sale today.   I pride myself in my marketing and negotiation skills and would appreciate the opportunity to put my 17 years of experience to work for you.   Give me a call at 843-505-3132 for your professional consultation.

What is Your Home Worth?

Are you wondering what your home is worth and if it’s time to sell?   Well it very well might be.  Inventory is down 10% overall in the Hilton Head area, and even more in the the under $300,000 price point.  Many buyers are struggling to find the home they really want because of the inventory shortage.   But you are wondering,  has my home value recovered from the recession…   And what would it be valued at on the market today?

Well check out this instant valuation tool built right into our website at http://loribee.exphiltonhead.com/sell.php  and let me put my 17 years of expert marketing and listing experience to work for you!   Lori Bee, exp Realty, 843-505-3132

Winter Dip in the Atlantic Ocean

“Winter Dip” photo by Lori Bee

So I’ve been a little slack of posting my photos on my actual blog.   I have posted them here and there on my Facebook Business Page, but wanted to make sure I also documented them here.

This one was apparently so good that a local photographer tried to claim it as her own.  LOL.  I take it as a compliment, but I did indeed take this.  She later relented, stating her software mistakenly flagged it as hers.  Maybe I should start truly copyrighting them?  Maybe even selling them?  What do you think.

This was taken in late February at the Sea Pines Beach Club.  I so enjoyed watching these carefree young ladies enjoying their “Winter Dip” in the Atlantic Ocean.   Life on Hilton Head Island is so grand for our youth.
