  What a wonderful day!    I had heard of Thanksgiving when I lived in Germany, but I had no idea how wonderful it is to celebrate with people I’m grateful for until I moved here. When I lived in Germany, I used the time between Christmas and New Years Eve to think about what and who I was grateful for at the end of the year, and I wrote thank you cards to those people. Now,  having a special day not only to think about how grateful I am, but being able to celebrate it with these friends, family and clients who I consider family, is even better.    I want to thank the following people in my life very much for all that they do and mean to me:  Susan, Sara, Lorraine, Sandy, Kathy, Will, Tina, John, Gail, Andy, Beverly, Falko, Carol,…

Buying your first home is an exciting time yet it also can be expensive. Buying a home may be your biggest financial commitment but it also can be more expensive than you realize if you aren’t prepared for all the costs.

1. Mortgage Insurance: it’s much easier these days to buy a home without a 20% down payment. As a result, more buyers have to insure the mortgage. Mortgage insurance premiums depend on how big your loan is and how little you put down. It’s important to factor in this cost into your monthly payment.

2. Homeowner’s Insurance and Property Taxes: Another area that first time buyers might not factor into homeownership are property taxes and homeowner’s insurance which can add up to 2 to 3 percent to their monthly mortgage payment.

I have been a realtor since 2005. I took some time off to raise a family and take care of family members and now I’m back to full time status, excited and ready to dedicate myself to clients. I graduated from Moravian college in Pennsylvania with a BA degree in Sociology and Psychology. After working in the corporate world for a few years, I learned I was not suited for a typical desk job. This eventually led me to pharmaceutical sales. After seven successful years in the industry my family and I took a vacation to Hilton Head and were so drawn to the island that we decided to take a leap and move, parlaying my pharmaceutical sales experience in to real estate sales on the island. Now a family of five, we have happily lived on the island for 15 years,

Accredited Buyer’s Representative

Buying a home or villa is no small matter. Besides being the largest, or one of the largest financial transactions you may ever undertake, it’s probably also the most complex. Additionally, if you're buying a second home, a vacation or investment property or pre-retirement home on Hilton Head, chances are you're searching in a market that you don't fully understand. That's where licensed realtors come in.

Local realtors have in-depth market knowledge of the available inventory, appropriate list versus sales price data, inspection concerns, lender resources, recommendations for remodelers and other sub-contractors, quietly held inventory that may not be visible on the national real estate hubs, and much more.

Considering buying a beach house can not only be a delightful vacation place for you and your family, but also afford an income stream and can bring favorable return on investment.
