In their annual “Reader’s Choice” awards, the Lowcountry was bestowed some rather high praise in 2012…
- Hilton Head Island was honored as one of America’s Top 10 Island Destinations.
- The Inn at Palmetto Bluff was named the 17th Best Resort in the World
- The Inn at Harbor Town was ranked a Top 20 Resort in the South
- The Disney Hilton Head Resort was also ranked a Top 20 Resort in the South
If you follow Lowcountry real estate you know that our market is not driven by industry. It’s driven by retirement. Each year we have 2,500,000 vacationers visit the area. And each year a percentage of them decide to throw away the snow shovel and overcoats and move south. In fact, as of January 2011 there are 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day for the next 18 years. And while we can’t be certain how many of them will move to the Lowcountry, we’re fairly confident no one is retiring to Cleveland!
Rankings such as the honors bestowed by the readers of Conde Nast reinforce the Lowcountry’s brand and in doing so add to the future value of area real estate.
Real estate values and rates are at all time lows, rankings are going through the roof, and you’re still waiting to buy? What are you waiting for? If not now… when?
