The Hilton Head Island housing market in January 2018 enjoyed its best year since the beginning of the recession. More homes sold in January 2018 than in any January since 2005, according to statistics from the Hilton Head Area Multiple Listing Service. As you can see from the chart to the left sales on the Island are up 10 homes sold (19%) over January 2017. The median price however did drop an insignificant 1.6% compared to January 2017 but is 42% below the peak set in 2006. With today’s historically low interest rates and prices still way below the peak, it is an extraordinary time to invest in real estate on the Island.
