Tropical Storm Irma Brings a Visitor to Hilton Head Island

The red Coast Guard buoy, weighing 13,000 pounds is currently lying sideways on a stretch of shore between South Forest Beach and Coligny Beach. 

Tropical Storm Irma with winds of 60 miles per hour and strong waves brought the buoy about 8 nautical miles from the mouth of the Port Royal Sound. 

Buoys are traffic signals for water vessels, guiding them to safety.  This buoy cost about $24,000.

Visitors and locals alike have been enjoying photo ops with the buoy and it has become the island’s latest tourist attraction.

According to Lt. J.B. Zorn of the Coast Guard, there’s no timetable for when the buoy will be return to the Port Royal Sound.   Transportation of the buoy back to

By the time Hurricane Irma passed across Hilton Head Island it was downgraded to a tropical storm and behaved much like a typical winter nor'easter. 

The winds were blustery and persistent and they gusted above 60 mph during the heaviest rain bands but none of this caused any real damage. Our problems came from the storm surge created by the massive size of Irma as she drifted north over the west coast of Florida and pushed a 4 foot wall of water up the east coast from Jacksonville to Charleston. This happend exactly as we were having an 8 foot king tide. The tidal gauge at Fort Pulaski recorded Irma's high water mark to be 12.24 feet which was just shy of Hurricane Matthew's record of 12.50 feet.

Our beaches took the same hit as they did during

There is nothing like the look, feel or smell of a brand new home.  It is the one time that the entire home’s materials and fixtures will ALL be brand new. Because as the years pass, things need to be replaced or repaired and our homes have newer updated elements combined with older original ones. Numerous other advantages make new construction attractive to potential buyers.  Here are just a few:

 1)      Floor Plans are designed for the way we live today. Most buyers today are looking for open concept living areas especially in kitchens, living and dining areas. Small rooms that are closed off are not conducive to large family gatherings and entertaining. Buyers also like the feel of higher ceilings to make spaces feel larger.

2)      Energy

Sellers of existing homes are usually thrilled when contract negotiations are complete and the deal is signed.  However, too often, getting a signed contract doesn’t mean it’s a done deal. That is until all contingencies are met. The biggest threat for the seller is having to give too much money back after the inspector finds problems in their home.  Sometimes the buyer concedes on the purchase price thinking they can come back after the property inspection and ask for additional concessions.

Buyers of existing homes generally make their offers contingent on a home inspection. An inspector will do a visual inspection of all the major elements of a home including roof, HVAC, health and safety checks, electrical wiring, windows etc…. These licensed
