Originally, talk about a new south-end park began back in the 1990s but was delayed due to the clean up after Hurricane Matthew.  Now the future “Lowcountry Celebration Park” has begun and expected to be completed in 2020.  The project will begin with road construction and re-routing of roads on the south-end.  The more prolific work of the park itself will commence 2019.

The park will be located just steps from Coligny Circle and off Pope Avenue.  9 acres of land behind the Forest Beach parking lot will be used to create the park which will include a band shell for outdoor concerts, public greenscape for events like festivals and shows, a children’s museum, kids’ water zone, rest areas, adventure playground with a large ship and an

Sea Pines Sea Oats

2018 is becoming the year of the "oceanfront home." Sales of oceanfront homes in Sea Pines have reached stellar pace with 8 homes having already been sold and another 3 under contract.

A combination of the award winning accolades The Sea Pines Resort has earned and last year's beach renourishment project that placed over 600,000 cubic yards of pristine sand along our forested beaches have contributed to the upswing in our oceanfront sales. If we close out the year with 11 oceanfront homes sold, that will be the most we've sold since 2007 when we set the record at 15.

What helps to set this year apart was a beautifully built new spec home on Whistling Swan that sold for $8,700,000. This was the most expensive oceanfront home to sell in Sea Pines

Beaufort County is making a cultural shift by banning plastic bags. The ordinance goes into effect on November 1st, 2018.  Reusable bags are a great way to preserve the region’s natural resources and the health and safety of the waterways and marine wildlife.

As of November 1st, 2018, businesses may no longer provide single-use disposable plastic carryout shopping bags to customers.  To accommodate the new ordinance, businesses are encouraged to provide reusable bags or recyclable paper bags for their customers. Some businesses have already made these changes and are providing reusable bags as either a courtesy or for sale at a minimal charge.

Reusable bags are made of cloth or other washable fabric or are comprised of recyclable plastic with a

I suppose there will be a lot of Blogs this week. Many of us have been sitting tight watching Florence change direction, speed and course throughout the last few days. We had Governor McMaster issue a mandatory evacuation for ALL coastal South Carolina counties on Monday, only to have it lifted on Tuesday. I had buyers coming and they did not know WHAT to do. Showings were done only to folks already on the island and my desk time was too quiet for comfort. Praying that as Florence makes landfall today, that lives are spared and property damage not be a burden to carry.

A Market UPDATE for our Local Hilton Head Market:

For Condos: In August 2017 we had 115 new listings and 100 closed sales. August brings 142 new listings (+23.5%) and 104 closed

    Most people think that a Realtor ® gets a lot of money for just driving around and showing a couple of beautiful houses.      To be honest, when I first thought about becoming a Realtor ® in this beautiful area, I had this vision too. Sometimes, it really does happen that a client walks in knowing exactly what he/she wants and purchases the third home we show.     However, most of the time it´s much more. Research, pre-viewing, communicating with the client and Realtor ® colleagues, negotiating price and other conditions and helping sellers and buyers thru the sometimes difficult process of a sale.     Meanwhile, I´ve learned being a Realtor® is most of the time really hard work, but it is my dream job. I love all…

What I like most about this home is the fact that it has three defined levels.

The elevated ground floor features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a media room and access to the patio and pool. It is perfect to accommodate the kids or guests with a comfortable 2,236 total Sq. Ft. Even better, each room has its own balcony, which is so nice to step out on right after waking up in the morning.

The second floor is perfect for entertaining, with a spacious open dining/living area, fireplace and an extremely impressive ocean view. The large open kitchen allows for watching the beach waves while you cook. The extra large patio provides not only a breathtaking view, but enough room for an outside dining or cocktail party.

The master bedroom and

Sea Pines Oceanfront Gem

BUILD IT, AND THEY WILL COME

By Lynne R. Anderson * REALTOR * Accredited BUYERS REP

Sounds simple right? The line made famous in the hit movie “Field of Dreams,” makes the process seem like an easy home run. Better take a deep breath and a couple of practice swings. While building your dream vacation home will certainly result in additional time with friends and family - build a beach house and they will visit - be sure and do your homework first.

KNOW YOUR TERRA FIRMA. Building in a coastal environment requires special considerations. When you find a beautiful lot, get a survey and make sure it includes the FEMA flood lines. Also know your property’s elevation for insurance purposes. Plan for a Tree and Topography Study;

Here we are almost at Summer's end. Some schools in the area have already begun and we can see some winding down of visitors in some restaurants, beaches and shops. The lazy hazy days of Summer have traditionally not been active busy months for buyers. That is no longer the case. People are more interested in inquiring and purchasing real estate this year than in the previous five. Hilton Head winning Travel and Leisure's best island in the US (#1) for a third year in a row has opened some eyes to the abundance of activities and opportunities on this island. Of course, we all have Charles Fraser and Sea Pines to thank for planting that mustard seed that has brought many of us here. Having grown up here from the time I was 9 years old, having attended the
