Today's Realtor Tour had 28 homes, 1 homesite and 7 villas.
Before I get into that, today we had on our island an oceanfront home go under contract in 20 days. The list price? $9.9 million. New home on 14 Whistling Swan. What does that mean? Well, that the Hilton Head Island Real Estate Market is alive and well. Furthermore, there are actually 25 (TWENTY FIVE) homes under contract with a list price of over $1 million. 30 Widewater Road is under contract for $3,999,999 and 121 Dune Lane for $3,850,000. 13 Piping Plover was on the market for a mere 3 (THREE) days with a list price of $3,850,000.
The common thread is that newer or new homes and GREAT locations. If a home needs too much updating and changes, even though it is cheaper to renovate now than building new (permitting, approvals, time, materials and cost), the buyer right now does not want to be bothered with this. Furthermore, two of the properties that were on the Tour were cancelled because they went under contract. So keeping these things in mind, about the tour today, which, I was unable to go see them all. Forgive me. I will still do my best to give you my favorite and why.
Prices ranged from $299,000 for 34 Gold Oak Drive to $2,545,000 for 12 Brams Point Road. Grandview Court is a high end villa in Hilton Head Plantation and on the top floor and I could see myself living there. Entertaining a lot with a lock and leave and gorgeous water views. The only downside is the cemetery beside it that hinders a clean clear view. Then again, you will get used to not seeing that. The rest of the 12 (TWELVE) homes in Hilton Head Plantation were "ok". Having seen the high end pendings, I am a bit like a princess today. I also saw a cute cute home in Windmill Harbor. 19 Crosstree Drive. It has the most amazing and cozy garden with two seating areas, a nice courtyard in the front. It would have been my pick but it did not have a garage. Also, you could hear 278 in the front (not in the back though, were it counts). This one is worth looking at as many that were on tour today.
Today I picked 45 Wilers Creek Way at $939,000 because it does not need any work, is in a automatic gated community and I like Broad Pointe for its nice quiet neighborhood feel. This particular home is a 5 bedroom and 5 bath home with 4,627 square feet and built in 2005. If you would like to see it, please call me or your Realtor. This one needs an appointment.
So for any home on Hilton Head Island that is for sale, please call me or your Realtor for anything you would like to see.
Many thanks and until next week!
