Today's tour was a whirlwind because we had a long sales meeting and a long lunch. More on that later.

We had 36 homes and villas on the market. I threw out the lots because honestly, the BEST lot out there is 8 Indian Hill Lane. Anyways, Six homes not in gated communities, were in Jonesville Road, Jarvis Creek Club, Oakview, Paddocks and Avalon Villas. The Avalon Villa was cute and well priced. End unit with a large garden and gazebo. Tastefully redone and a great home away from home. We had thirteen properties in Hilton Head Plantation, of which two were villas in the popular Village of Skull Creek, near the Country Club of Hilton Head, Marina and Old Fort Pub! Those won't count as my favorites but they are well liked by all that know them. Close to back gate also. We had a cute redo at 5 Nut Hatch, which might be the winner at HHP, a cute well priced 33 Parkwood Drive, a WOW large home on 15 Parkwood Drive too. 28 Winding Trail Lane was a 3/b at $380,000 but I missed the tour time since it was only until 2pm and I had that fashion show.... Anyways, we had three homes in Hickory Forest, numbers 29, 41 and 47 ranging in condition and price from $474,900 to $725,000. 29 Hickory Forest was the five bedroom, which, compared to Palmetto Hall, is in a decent price range. Then 2 White Tail Deer Lane, 14 Old Fort Lane (too late and was unable to see), 3 Old Fort Lane (a wow) and the two units in Village North Drive, units 105 and 137.

Indigo Run also had some great homes this week, eight in total: 49 Wilers Creek Way (4/5) at $925,000, 11 Hummock Place, 566 Colonial Drive, 30 Balmoral Place, 101 Wedgefield Drive, 574 Colonial Drive, 55 Lancaster Place and 21 Primrose Lane. I missed 21 Primrose Lane but I would have to say that 49 Wilers Creek Way was my favorite. It had a wonderful outdoor entertaining area which made it less cookie cutter than others. The wall colors needed some help but there is nothing a can of paint can't fix - that is an easy one!

Palmetto Hall had six homes in 7 Rutledge Court, 29 Oglethorpe Lane, 314 Fort Howell Drive, 333 Fort Howell Drive, 4 Musgrove Circle and 25 Madison Lane. Loved the country look of 29 Oglethorpe Lane and its come down in price. The erst were also pretty good but if I had to pick on in here, it would be 25 Madison Lane. Close to the gate, great curb appeal and cute beyond words. Popular too having four bedrooms. It was listed at $619,000.

I started the day with Windmill Harbour, at 140 Harbour Passage, a 3/3 at $539,000 and 1 Yacht Club Drive, 3/3 at $525,000. I would take 140 Harbour Passage in a heartbeat. It had an amazing view!!! Yes, you could tell an elderly couple lived there and yes, they were charter members of the SC Yacht Club. The house was in great shape and was just dated. I prefer one owner homes, meticulously maintained. Couple that with a great view on a superior lot and that one wins. 

Spanish Wells had one on 6 Mcintosh Road. Looks like a spec home, all new and pool etc. overlooking the woods. Four bedrooms at $1,399,000. 

I would say my pick this week is either 140 Harbour Passage ($539,000) in Windmill Harbour, 25 Madison Lane (619,000) in Palmetto Hall or 49  Wilers Creek Way in Broad Pointe $925,000 (Indigo Run). I can't say any at Hilton Head Plantation unless it was the cute redo at 5 Nut Hatch, 3/3 for $479,000. I also liked 15 Parkwood ($719,000), that had a lot more features. SO these above were my favorites and since I always can only pick ONE, it would be 5 NUT HATCH, assuming someone wanted a conforming loan, a yard in the back that they can design (it had none) and a nice screen porch. A larger way to have that living would be park wood and then 49 Wilers Creek Way. That is, if the checkbook allowed it. 

After zooming all those, I also had a fun long lunch by invitation to a fundraiser for The Hilton Head Symphony. Susan Goodridge from BB&T was my hostess and the Fashion Show presented by Oh So Sandra. Lovely luncheon! I hope they raised a lot of money.
