In 2018 the Greater Bluffton housing market continues to be on fire, again setting the record for the all-time best first half of the year, according to statistics from the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Area Multiple Listing Service. In the boom years prior to The Great Recession, first half home sales in Greater Bluffton, which includes all of southern Beaufort County except Hilton Head and Daufuskie Islands, peaked in 2006 at 571 sales. As you can see in the chart to the left, in first half of 2018 1,140 homes were sold, doubling the pre-recession peak. As the demand for Greater Bluffton continues to outpace supply, the median price has risen 3.8% from last year and is at an all-time high. With increasing demand and today’s historically low interest rates, it is an exceptional time to invest in real estate in our area.

This information is based on data provided by Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island, Inc. (“HHIMLS”) for the period January 2018 through July 5, 2018.

Giving You The EDGE Smart Marketing, Extensive Exposure and Tailored Strategies to Sell Your Home

Source: Keeping Current Matters, July 2018

When listing your house for sale, your top goal will be to get the house sold for the best price possible! There are many small projects you can do to ensure this happens!

KEY TRENDS

Give your entry a face lift with either a new coat of paint or a new front door.

Clean everything! Clean homes allow buyers to picture themselves in the space.

Don’t forget to landscape your yard! A well-groomed yard shows buyers that the home was taken care of.

Give every room a purpose - even if you used it as a bonus room, giving it an identity will help buyers.

Make sure all exterior lights work and replace all outdoor light bulbs.

Let light in! Bright rooms feel warm and inviting; dark rooms feel small and gloomy.

Wash all windows (inside and out) to ensure that dirt doesn’t take away from the view. Clean out your garage! Consider getting a storage unit to store non-essential items.

Fix anything that is broken! Buyers will notice and may offer less for your house if repairs are required. De-clutter! Thinning out closets and pantries will highlight space availability.

Add a pop of color by planting flowers that work with your area’s climate.

Replace light bulbs with new ones and make sure all switches are working.

Remove any lawn ornaments that you will bring with you to your new home.

Empty trash bins and hide dirty laundry before your home is shown.

Replace a worn out welcome mat to welcome buyers as they tour the home.

Organize the kitchen! Store non-essential, small appliances and clean all surfaces.

Paint or replace the street numbers on the house to increase their visibility.

Make sure all doors open and close smoothly. Be sure to fix squeaking doors!

Power wash outdoor surfaces to give them a ‘like new’ feel (ex: siding, driveway, sidewalks, etc.)

Fresh paint & new carpet are the top 2 things you can do to sell your home faster and for more money.

In 2018 the Greater Bluffton housing market continues to be on fire, again setting the record for the all-time best first half of the year, according to statistics from the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Area Multiple Listing Service. In the boom years prior to The Great Recession, first half home sales in Greater Bluffton, which includes all of southern Beaufort County except Hilton Head and Daufuskie Islands, peaked in 2006 at 571 sales. As you can see in the chart to the left, in first half of 2018 1,140 homes were sold, doubling the pre-recession peak. As the demand for Greater Bluffton continues to outpace supply, the median price has risen 3.8% from last year and is at an all-time high. With increasing demand and today’s historically low interest rates, it is an exceptional time to invest in real estate in our area.
