Hilton Head Home Sales Growing Strong

Prices Are Up On Many Hilton Head Homes

Let’s review: the great recession put Hilton Head real estate through the wringer.  Many home prices did a ’round trip’ back to pre-bubble levels and lower.  When the bubble burst, buyers sat on their hands and held their worried heads.  Then, early birds came to the bargain party and they were rewarded for their financial courage.  It’s official: we have a strong recovery.   About the housing recovery, Bankrate.com Senior Financial Analyst Guy McBride has said, “It seems like Americans’ love affair with real estate has returned”.

The Hilton Head housing market has generally paralleled the national trend in home sales that we see in the chart above.   By the way, the chart also underscores the wisdom of buying real estate instead of stocks – another article coming soon.  The supply and demand ratios that we see in many of our Hilton Head neighborhoods are a strong recovery indicators of forecast higher prices.  Distressed properties like foreclosures and short sales are not going away anytime soon but they will sell fast and at higher prices because of strong demand now.

Economy Homes Lead the Recovery

Economy homes and villas are more affordable to more people and they have been selling best and leading the recovery.  I suppose that you could describe our recovery as ‘bottoms up’.  Take a look at the supply and demand ratios below in a handful of Hilton Head communities for the last 90 days with average home prices of $81,000-$443,000*.  They describe a seller’s market and the probability of higher prices soon.

  1. Westbury Park, Bluffton: 4 homes for sale, 12 sold and under contract.
  2. Pinecrest, Bluffton: 6 for sale, 15 sold and under contract.
  3. The Farm, Bluffton: 6 for sale, 16 sold and under contract.
  4. Heritage Lakes, Bluffton, 4 for sale, 6 sold and under contract.
  5. Hilton Head Plantation, HH Island: 93 for sale, 80 sold and under contract.
  6. Island West, Bluffton: 8 for sale, 6 sold and under contract.
  7. The Crescent, Bluffton: 8 for sale, 7 sold and under contract.
  8. Hampton Hall, Bluffton: 22 for sale, 26 sold and under contract.

Luxury Homes Show Improvement And Opportunity

Now consider the numbers below for the last 90 days in some higher-priced neighborhoods with average prices of $449,000-$1,547,684*.  These are good ratios too but not as strong as we see with lower-priced homes, therefore higher-priced luxury homes present more of a buyer’s market at this time, but it is getting better for sellers too.

  1. Rose Dhu Creek Plantation, Bluffton: 10 for sale, 5 sold and under contract.
  2. Belfair in Bluffton, 36 for sale, 14 sold and under contract.
  3. Wexford, Hilton Head Island: 38 for sale, 14 sold and under contract.

It is clear that the supply-demand ratios of more expensive ‘luxury’ homes still favor bargains for luxury home buyers but at the same time, the demand for luxury homes is getting better.  The luxury market represents special opportunities for luxury home buyers; many homes still for sale at prices below their reproduction costs, on locations that cannot be bought or duplicated.  It is still pretty common to see prices for homes sitting on lots that used to cost $300,000 and more priced as if the lot was free, or at a greatly reduced price.  Buyer confidence is back and it is attractive.  But, if 2013 has been the year of real estate romance, just wait till next year!  My friends, we can only hope.

Let’s Work Together To Find Your Bargain  

For all buyers, today’s prices and interest rates represent an offer that should not be refused.  If not a romance, an enjoyable relationship?  This market is an open window of opportunity for any buyer who is ready, willing and able.  I am at your service with 37 years of Hilton Head real estate experience so let’s work together to find the bargain in this market for you today.  My team approach will save you time and money and provide for all your real estate needs.   Please share your real estate goals with me and receive a search and update program targeted to your needs that will update automatically with all new listings, price and status changes and include all foreclosures and short sales.  It is the best way to monitor your personal real estate market.  Please call my cell number 843-684-2933 and email rich@gogated.com anytime.
