Charles Fraser & The Alligator By Robbie Bunting he other day a friend called and asked what the story was regarding the man and the alligator on Pope Avenue. I told him the guy with the cap walking with the gator was Charles Fraser the founder of Sea Pines, and more importantly the man who discovered the present day covenant. I further explained that Charles went to Yale and was being groomed for his families lumbering business, but when he first saw the natural beauty of Hilton Head Island, all bets were off in cutting down any trees for his dad.

covenants & restrictions that included earth tone colored homes so you would focus on the trees, architectural review boards that limited the size of trees a home owner can remove, winding roads that made you see the trees and not the developments, bike paths so we slowed down and enjoyed the trees and he made these restrictions transfer with property to the subsequent owner. Charles was not only a visionary, but in my mind he was the founder of Hilton Head Island.

Remember Dr. something to do with living on a sub Seuss’s story about the Lorax? Charles tropical Island. Turns out I was not far became the spokesperson for the trees and off. When Hilton Head was first starting nature on Hilton Head. Charles wrote development, the Saturday Evening Post

came to the Island to visit and in March 1962, the magazine published a story about Sea Pines. It included a picture of Fraser, then only 26, walking beside the alligator. That famous picture helped put Hilton Head on the map, and changed this Island forever. You can hug a tree on Hilton Head because of Charles Fraser! So if you were wondering who the man walking with the alligator is next time you are out, go ahead and hug a tree in honor of Charles Fraser.

Never Been a Better Time to Buy Running the numbers on Hilton Head real estate:

N

ever before have the numbers looked so good for Hilton Head Buyers. These numbers including interest rates, rental income and purchase price offer awesome opportunities for our buyers. In fact, when all of these numbers are in alignment, the market offers perfect timing for Hilton Head buyers. Check out why it makes sense for real estate buyers to take advantage of these numbers sooner rather than later. Interest Rates on Hilton Head Properties How long can these low mortgage rates last? With 30 year fixed money bouncing around 4%, buyers have huge buying power. Interest rates have moved up about 1% in the last few months, but timing is still on the buyers side. Keep in mind though, every time the rate goes up a percentage point, buyers lose 10% of their buying power in what they could have afforded at the lower rate. Are you prepared to spend more and get less in the future? Rental Income on Hilton Head Properties Hilton Head Property Owners that buy and rent can have their cake and eat it too. Both Long and Short Term Vacation rentals are in high demand. On top of this, property owners can supplement their rental income with the placement of rental ads on internet sites including VRBO, HomeAway, Dwellable and Flipkey. A pro-active property owner can increase their income 10-50% by promoting their property on a internet rental website. The internet makes owning rental property more profitable. Purchase Prices for Hilton Head Properties Buy when there is supply. Hilton Head buyers benefit from inventory with HiltonHeadPropertiesRandR.com

selection, better pricing and negotiation. We are seeing many sellers jump back into the market in the Hilton Head areas. One of the reasons for this is that pricing is up about 9% in the last 12 months in the Hilton Head market. Sellers also know that buyers are motivated right now by low interest rates. With inventory comes better price and negotiation. Improvements for Hilton Head Properties Darwin would be buying right now in this Hilton Head Market, because we are offering the very best. In the past, buyers had to factor in furniture, roofs, AC units, kitchen remodeling, carpeting and paint. The real estate market today offers the crème of the crop properties at competitive pricing. It won’t be long until we get back into helping our clients Information: 843-785-7111

figure out the cost of improvements again, but right now it is easy to find a property in the same neighborhood that is ready to go that has been updated. We call this “replacability” and while it exists it is very good for a buyer. (Inverse, this is not so good for a seller unless their home or villa is in perfect condition). Go Ahead and Run the Numbers on Hilton Head Properties Buyers never had so many great reasons to get involved in our Hilton Head Properties. The numbers all line up perfectly. One significant number that needs to be factored into the above is the value a buyer places on quality of life, time with family, friends, Spanish Moss and Moonbeams. This value is the determining factor and all the numbers above just make it good timing to get involved today.

What is a Regime Fee on Hilton Head? W

e have our own language when it comes to Hilton Head real estate. We say villas, regimes, harbours, plantations and complexes when others would call them condos, condo fees, marinas, PUD’s and projects. We use the word regime for condos in Hilton Head because when a condo is built in South Carolina,a Horizontal Property Regime is formed and recorded. This regime than manages the common property going forward. This blog is about regimes fees on Hilton Head Island. What legally defines a regime on Hilton Head In South Carolina, Apartments, for horizontal property purposes, are defined in S.C. Code Ann. § 27-31-20(a) as a part of the property intended for any type of independent use including one or more rooms or enclosed spaces. Each co-owner, or owner of an apartment in a horizontal property regime, acquires condominium ownership, and owns his or her individual apartment, and has a common right to share, with other co-owners, in the common areas of the property.[ Queen’s Grant II Horizontal Prop. Regime v. Greenwood Dev. Corp., 368 S.C. 342, 628 S.E.2d 902, 2006 S.C. App. LEXIS 79 (S.C. Ct. App. 2006).]

no one else can ever be in this space unless you invite them. Basically everything outside the walls and windows other than the condenser unit is usually common property and taken care of by the regime. The owner is responsible for the liability and contents inside, the interior including all of the appliances and of course enjoying this great island without worrying about who is going to mow the yard. Put your feet up and relax!

it may cost the villa owners something to have it done…the money often times already there with the proactive regimes nowadays. If it is not, the cost is passed on directly to owners, based on the unit size and location and is often less than owning a home when it comes to getting the property into tip top condition.

Golf cart-friendly communities By Robbie Bunting

T

he best Hilton Head Island purchase we ever made was “Ol’ Bessie.” That is what my wife and kids named our 1991 club car golf cart. When we purchased her in 1993, she had already been set out to pasture by a golf course in the north east and we were told because the seasons were shorter up there, she still had a lot of life in her. We paid $1,500 and added the back seat kit and the top and she is still going strong. There are many reasons to own a golf cart and many areas on the Island that allow carts listed below. Places on Hilton Head where you can own a private golf cart The very large golf-cart friendly communities in the area include Sun City Hilton Head and Daufuskie Island. Some of the gated communities that allow private golf carts include Wexford, Palmetto Hall, Spanish Wells, Haig Point, Indigo Run, Colleton River, Berkeley Hall, Belfair, and Leamington. I have also spotted some golf carts in the Folly Field, Forest Beach, Jonesville Road, Spanish Wells Road and other secondary road areas. South Carolina law says licensed drivers can operate golf carts with a special permit on secondary roads or to cross a primary road during daylight hours less than two miles from their residence. Beaufort County Sheriff’s officials also said it is not safe to take a shortcut across a 55 mph highway

in an electric cart. Golf carts definitely fit our town’s ”eco-friendly” efforts. Ol’ Bessie’s life on and off the golf course Of course,just one of the reasons in owning a golf cart is golf. Ol’ Bessie, our golf cart, never really had a life on the course after her retirement except when a neighbor borrowed her. Some of the many uses have been with toddlers strapped in their car seats as we drove around and discussed our busy day, trick or treating, progressive dinners, going to a friends home, the pool, the tennis courts, to explore, landscaping,

How’s the Weather?

H

ilton Head weather is simply better!

The Island is kept warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by thermals or the ocean breezes over the warm sea (that is why you see people swimming in the ocean in January). In fact, our moderate winter days are typically warmer than other inland southern cities. 30

2016 | Hilton Head Properties Realty & Rentals

The winter months have less rain than the wetter summer months, with sub-tropical temperatures that are perfect for snowbirds or real estate shoppers looking for a warm-weather escape. The winter is Hilton Head Island’s sports season, which is perfect for golf, long beach walks, biking, tennis and most other outdoor activities.
