Why You Should Have A Hilton Head Buyer’s Agent and How Does It Work?

A Video Summary of Buyer’s Agency

Buyers spend a lot of time searching homes and communities on the Internet for which there is a lot of information.   It must be obvious that the Agent that you choose can make a big difference in your success too!  But, the challenge of finding a good Buyer’s Agent can be as hard and maybe harder than finding the right property.

Moreover, many buyers do not understand how Buyer’s Agency works.  How does it work?  What does it cost? Do you need a Buyer’s Agent?  Does the Agent represent you?  It may surprise you to learn that it costs nothing more to have a Buyer’s Agent work for you and that the commission that an Agent earns is the same whether they are knowledgeable, experienced and skilled, new on the job or worse.  This information and more is in the video, above.  Here is a summary:

  •  A Buyer’s Agent represents the Buyer, not the Seller.
  • A Seller is represented by the property’s Listing Agent.
  • An Agent can represent a Buyer and Seller at the same time, called Dual Agency.
  • As a Buyer, you are represented best by a Buyer’s Agent.
  • It typically does not cost anything more for you to have a Buyer’s Agent.
  • A Buyer’s Agent is typically paid from the commission that is in the price of every listed property.
  • A Buyer’s Agent is typically paid at closing, only if you buy and if you close.
  • An experienced Buyer’s Agent earns the same commission as an inexperienced Agent.
  • Builder-Developers of new homes expect you to have an Agent and do not represent you.

I am a Buyer’s Agent with 39 years of Hilton Head Island and Bluffton real estate experience with advice that you can trust.  Receive a list of homes that can meet your needs in an accurate format that will update automatically and save you a lot of time, the best way to monitor your personal real estate market.  There is no cost of obligation for this service.  My fee as your Buyer’s Agent is already in the price of every listed property, paid only at closing if you buy and if you close.

Hampton Hall Home With Six Bedrooms!

65 Shelburne Street Asking $739,000

It may be redundant to say that only luxury homes have six bedrooms, and while $739,000 is no small price, consider that most every home in the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton area with six bedrooms is on the beach on Hilton Head Island, mansions designed for the large annual vacation for which families and corporations pay a fortune, and it’s probably worth it.  The average price of all homes with six bedrooms in the area is $2,013,623*.  Leaving Hilton Head Island, there are only four homes with six  bedrooms in Bluffton.  One costs three million dollars and two are in Colleton River that has an annual HOA fee of $16,275.  What’s a large family that needs six bedrooms to do?   The answer may be 65 Shelburne Street, listed with Charter One Realty, not only beautiful and with a golf course view, but the only home in Hampton Hall with six bedrooms, a good choice at only $739,000!  Please call on me for details about this beautiful home, Hampton Hall or any other home and community.  My name is Richard Kadesch and I am showing you this home as a Buyer’s Agent with 39 years of Hilton Head Island and Bluffton real estate experience.

Hampton Hall Has Optional Private Golf

Hampton Hall has some of the best recreational and social amenities of any community in the Hilton Head-Bluffton area but the luxury lifestyle does have the highest price.  The annual HOA fee for Hampton Hall is just $3,606.  This includes an indoor heated lap pool and a large outdoor swimming pool, Hard-Tru tennis courts, deluxe fitness center and large clubhouse with dining room.  The private Hampton Hall Golf Club with Pete Dye golf course is optional and extra, another reason why some owners like Hampton Hall.  You do not pay for golf unless you want it.

Hilton Head Economy Homes Show Higher Prices

Economy Homes Cost 8% More in 2014 Than 2013

Bluffton has only 6 homes for sale less than $150,000 today.

Today, there are few people who doubt that most segments of the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton real estate market have recovered well from the recession.  In Bluffton, super-economy homes for less than $150,000 sold at prices 8% higher in 2014 vs. 2013 ($119,415 vs $110,510).  Economy homes in Bluffton also sold faster and fewer in 2014 than in 2013 with 17% fewer average days on the market (70 vs 84) and with 24% fewer homes sold in in 2014 than in 2013 (143 vs 188).

Demand remains high for homes in the super-economy range like 511 Gardners Lane in the video above, for sale with Go Gated Realty® for just $109,000!  Today in Bluffton, there are just 14 homes for sale for less than $150,000 and just 6 for less than $125,000.  The number of economy homes for sale in Bluffton continues to decrease as prices for economy homes trend higher.  The economy villa market on Hilton Head Island is similar.  The trend for higher economy home and villas prices will continue in 2015 and possibly gain strength as the economy improves and demand increases.*

Your Personal Real Estate Market Trend

Before you make an offer on a home, you should receive comps (comparable sales) and market advice about whether the asking price on a home is high, low or fair market.  Monitoring your personal real estate market starts well in advance of your offer with an accurate search and update program.

Did you know that it costs nothing more to have an experienced Buyer’s Agent help your success before, during and after your purchase?  As your Buyer’s Agent on Hilton Head Island and Bluffton, South Carolina, I represent you, not the Seller and my pay is already in the price of every listed property, paid at closing only if you buy and close.   I have 39 years of Hilton Head and Bluffton real estate experience to help you find the real estate that you want and my team of professionals is here to assist you in every way.

Please call or email today about the economy, mid-range or luxury home or villa that you want.   Let’s talk about your real estate goals soon so that you can receive an accurate and reliable list of homes targeted to your needs that will update automatically and save your time searching.  There is no cost or obligation for this service.  Do you want a cash flow property?  This may mean vacation rental or long-term rental (tenants with leases).  I can help with both and my company has managed long-term rentals for many years.  Both the economy home and villa markets are going strong.  Both vacation rental and long-term rental occupancy and income is on the rise.  Please call and let’s talk about your goals.

Thank you for reading this blog.  I hope to hear from you soon.  My cell number is 843-684-2933, email rich@gogated.com.  Please subscribe to the Go Gated Channel on You Tube and enjoy Go Gated Hilton Head Real Estate on Face Book.

Eat For Good Health In 2015. Happy New Year!

 The Trend Is Better Health Through Diet

In 2015, Hilton Head Islanders and Blufftonians are part of a major shift in Hilton Head lifestyle, to eat better for good health.  Will you be part of it?  Of course, many of us will not change even as our diet does not support good health and our meat-based diets are not sustainable by our ecosystem.  To be part of the trend to eat smart for better health, you must be open to change.  If you are, congratulations!  Your psychology just opened the door to a healthier lifestyle for you and possibly by your influence, the ones that you love.

Join Your Neighbors For The Rewards

When you decide to seek better health through nutrition, you will join an increasing number of Head Islanders and Blufftonians who take their diets more seriously than ever before, and with good rewards.  Good relationships are an important key to good health and your social universe will expand to include people who are like-minded in diet and ready to share their friendship and knowledge with you.  You will start reading the labels on your food and caring about what they say.  You might be surprised to find how much high fructose corn syrup, salt and fat is in your everyday diet.  The unfortunate truth is that the traditional American diet is bad for us.  More Hilton Head Islanders are finding this out and are taking action by eating better.  You will learn that the key to a good lifestyle is to abandon the traditional American diet and instead, eat fruits and vegetables, non-processed food and organic food all of which prevents and even reverses some disease, and possibly most easily, allows us to lose weight.
