6 Important Features of a Great Neighborhood

You’ve done the research. You know the crime rates are low, there are excellent schools nearby, and your potential new neighborhood is an acceptable distance from your work. But what takes a neighborhood from good to great? We have compiled some of our personal ideas.

Important Features of a Great Neighborhood

Seabrook-Island-club-bike-ridesNearby Parks and Green Space

Easy access to green spaces for both people and pets is a worthwhile benefit to note. When you see that parks are being used regularly, this is a good indication that the community is welcoming and sees value in the green spaces provided. Between beaches, biking and nature trails, Seabrook has an abundance of natural space to take advantage of.

Grocery Stores

Having a nearby grocery store is a must, but having nearby grocery stores that you like is one thing that makes your potential new neighborhood a great fit for you. Bonus points if the grocery stores are new, as this is likely a sign that the community is growing and more people are interested in the area. Seabrook’s own Freshfields Village features the popular Village Market by Harris Teeter – a full-service grocery store offering convenient and quality products for both visitors and residents alike.

Restaurants

This feature is similar to the grocery stores one. It’s always good to have affordable restaurants that you like nearby, so you can drop by or get something delivered on those nights that you just don’t feel like cooking something at home. Between popular club dining options like Pelican’s Nest and Bohicket’s Lounge, or even off-island restaurants like Fuji sushi or McCann’s Irish Pub, Seabrook offers a wide range of restaurants to choose from.

Walkability

Being able to walk to the beach or ride your bike to the swimming pool is a convenience that not all neighborhoods have.

Access to Medical Care

When you have scheduled appointments or an emergency, you don’t want to have to travel for hours to get the attention you need. MUSC, the current closest hospital to Seabrook Island, announced last month that they would be constructing a freestanding emergency department between Seabrook and Kiawah that has exam rooms, a trauma center, and a helipad.

Developed Landscaping

There is something calming about a neighborhood with moss-laden trees and well-developed landscaping. It might just be the final feature that moves your opinion on the neighborhood from good to great.

You probably have your own list of neighborhood features (beyond the basics) that are most meaningful to you. Will you find your perfect match on Seabrook Island? Check out our real estate listings and get in contact with one of our agents to find out!

Advice for Buying a Beach House as a Second Home

If you live in the North or even some parts of the Midwest, you may already be feeling the fall chill. Before you know it, you’ll be back to shoveling snow and waiting anxiously for spring’s soft breezes to warm up your shivering bones. In moments like these, you may start thinking about buying a second home, but not just any home – a house on the beach where the weather is mild year-round. Before you dive headfirst into home listings, ask yourself the following questions:

seabrook-island-sunset

Why do you want to buy a second home?

If you love where you currently live, but you just happen to be weathering a once-a-year cold snap, you may not want to take on the extra responsibility of owning a second home. Ask yourself why you really want the second house, and be honest in your answer. If you find that you do want to get away from the snow or you really want to have a vacation house on the beach, then by all means, start checking listings!

Do you know the true costs?

If you’ve never owned a second home before and you are not from the area that you’re house hunting in, you may be surprised by the cost differences. Property taxes differ from state to state, insurance is different on second homes, flood insurance is probably a more relevant concern, and your potential new community may have HOA fees to consider. These things shouldn’t necessarily deter you from thinking about a beach home, but it is important to be aware of them before you buy.

What are the neighbors and community like?

Even if you’re only spending a few weeks a year in your beach house, it’s important that you like your neighbors and community. You won’t be home much of the time, and kind neighbors who keep an eye out for your property are essential. You also want to be comfortable in the community as a whole; the people that you’re around on vacation can have a big impact on your overall perception of the trip. Do some research on the community and see if it has the amenities you like or social groups that you can get involved in during your stay.

If you’ve asked yourself these questions, you’re on your way to being prepared for a second home purchase. If you already know that a beach home is right for you, take a look at Seabrook’s waterfront properties or reach out to one of our agents today!

8 Ways to Know You Found the Right House

Depending on how specific your needs are, house hunting can become a long and stressful process. After months of searching and seeing as many houses as your real estate agent can come up with, how do you know that you’ve found the right house at last?

It’s tentative love at first sight.

After all you’ve been through, you may not fall head-over-heels in love at the first sight of those plantation shutters that you adore or the winding driveway you’ve been thinking about for years. With that said, one of the first signs that you may have found the right house for you is a sense of hopefulness before you even step out of your car. That house’s curb appeal is speaking to you in a way that makes you think that this could be the one.

When you walk in and stand in the rooms, they just feel right.

Call it a gut feeling or buyer’s intuition; this is a subtle emotion. You just feel at home in a way that you haven’t in any of the other houses you’ve toured.

You don’t see flaws; you see opportunities.

The master bathroom may only have one sink right now, but you know it’s big enough to accommodate two sinks and you’re up for the task. The kitchen counter might need some love, but that’s an easy enough fix and you’ll get to add in the marble countertops you’ve always wanted. If the house isn’t right for you, all of these things will seem like a hassle instead of something to look forward to.

real-estate-agent-seabrook-islandIn every room you enter, you start imagining how you would arrange your furniture.

You’re already envisioning the layout and thinking about how your furniture would complement the space of this new home. You can see how you would move things around to entertain family members during the holidays and you’re figuring out the best place to display your favorite piece of art.

The house covers all of your basic needs.

It might not have the garage you wanted, but it fits your room, bathroom, and space requirements. You recognize that anything on your wishlist that the house doesn’t have is either not that important or can be added later.

You don’t want to look at any other homes.

It isn’t because you’re burned out on house hunting–you know what you want.
You’re looking forward to entertaining guests here. You want to share this home with your friends and family, and you can’t wait to start planning.

It fits your future.

The 5 Factors of a Good Location

People always say that location is the most important factor in buying good real estate, but what that term really means is not always clear. ‘Location’ doesn’t just mean the distance to downtown Charleston; a good location incorporates several other important community aspects.

aerial view of the seabrook island beach club and pool

How close is the property to where you need to go?

Centrality is often what people think about when they hear the term ‘location.’ There is a reason why the downtown areas of cities are often the most expensive; they are close to the city’s heartbeat, and depending on development regulations, there may not be new ones being listed on the market any time soon.

Real estate that is farther away from essential locations generally falls in price. This isn’t a strictly linear relationship, though, because homeowners often appreciate the larger spaces and limited traffic congestion that living away from the city allows.

Are there plans for development?

Current amenities are important, but so are future ones. If you know that there are building plans for a new high-quality school or hospital in the area, the property value of nearby real estate will increase. Before you settle on a home, try to find out what developments are in the works.

Seabrook-Island-club-bike-ridesWhat is the neighborhood like?

Every homeowner-in-the-making will have a different idea of what they want in a neighborhood, but there are a few things that appeal to all. First, you want the neighborhood to be located in reasonable commuting distance to your essential places. Second, easy access to quality amenities is ideal. Third, the neighborhood should have an appearance that appeals to you (and other potential buyers if you plan to sell later).

How much are homes nearby going for and how long are they on the market?

When looking at the closing price of other nearby homes, consider how long it took to sell those houses. A quick turnover rate indicates that there is interest in the area.

Where is the lot located?

After you have considered all of the above factors, the choice you make between alternatives may come down to the lot itself. Is one option on a busy road? Does it back up to a church or some other commercial property? If it is nearby structures like these, it will likely be more difficult to sell.

If you are looking for your next primary home or a rental property, Seabrook Island has a wide assortment of homes and lots that are available for sale. Reach out to Seabrook Island Real Estate for more information.

3 Things Sellers Should Look For When Choosing An Agent

Situated 24 miles south of Charleston, S.C., Seabrook Island offers a secluded, island lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still close proximity to great dining, shopping and world-class healthcare facilities. When it comes to finding the right buyer for your island property, here are five things sellers should consider before listing with a real estate agent.

  1. A Seasoned Veteran – When evaluating potential agents for your home, ask how long they’ve been selling on the island and research their selling history over the past six months. While it is good for the agent to demonstrate sales knowledge by number of houses sold during that time period, it is even more important the agent you choose has experience selling homes similar to yours in features, square footage and desired price point to ensure they bring the right buyer to your home.
  2. Accessible Advocate – The agent you list your home with will be the primary advocate for your property. Ensure they are on the same page when it comes to making your home a priority and that you don’t get lost in a sea of listings. A great agent will be able to balance other listings with consistent communication and effort selling your property specifically.
  3. Island Intricacies – Residential real estate is local. Each market has several subsets of neighborhoods and communities that your agent should have a firm understanding of. Seabrook Island is no different. This is a close-knit island community where subtleties and island intricacies can make all the difference. The agent you choose should have a robust marketing plan that brings in buyers from both the island and other markets, but it’s imperative that they understand the nuances of the island market. While Spring is a popular time to list, is there a particular month to list that can yield a higher sale price? Are there certain words to use when describing the home that resonates with desired buyers? The more focus your agent’s practice is on selling properties on Seabrook Island specifically, the better.

Spring has Sprung!

The grass is greener, the blooms are brighter and the temperatures are rising – Spring has officially sprung! I’ve rounded up my five favorite things about this sunny (and gorgeous!) season on Seabrook Island below. Happy #FirstDayofSpring, y’all!

 

The greens are greener.

Although our golf maintenance team and Seabrook Island Club maintenance squad do a fantastic job of keeping our Island beautiful and serene year-round, the warmer temperatures in March and the rain in April brighten and liven our greens! Here on Seabrook we have two award-winning golf courses, Crooked Oaks and Ocean Winds, each offering unique challenges and playing conditions. Visit here to learn more about Seabrook Island Golf!

 

In Bloom!

Azaleas, Magnolias and jasmine – oh my! Our favorite thing about Spring in the Lowcountry? The flowers! Although the pollen is irritating (pun intended), the azaleas are already in full force here on Seabrook Island – downtown Charleston, too! And the jasmine and magnolia trees will begin to bloom next month.

 

Longer Days.

Although Daylight Savings can be an absolute pain, it also signals LONGER days! Meaning, more daylight hours for golf, trail rides, tennis matches, oceanfront dining and hours by the pool. With cooler temperatures at night, Spring is also a perfect time of year for sunset beach walks and star gazing.

 

Open for the Season.

Our favorite spot on the Island, the Beach Club/Pelican’s Nest, opens for the season at the beginning of Spring! Oceanfront happy hour, lunch with ocean views and lounging by the pool? Sign us up! The pools at the Beach Club and the Seabrook Shoppe will open for the season this Friday, March 23rd, and the Pelican’s Nest and Cap’n Sams Grill will open next Friday, March 30th. Stop by the Shoppe from 2-4pm on the 23rd for champagne and snacks at their “Sip & Shop” event!

 

Easter in the Lowcountry!

easter service with ocean view

Easter is one of our favorite things about Spring, and there are a few great events on Seabrook Island to celebrate. Stop by the Island House front lawn at 10am on Saturday March 31st for the popular Easter Egg Hunt and/or the Ocean Terrace at 6:30am on Easter Sunday for the Sunrise Service. + the Island House will be serving a special Easter brunch from 11am-3pm on Sunday. Our neighbors, Freshfields Village, are also hosting a few events Easter Weekend! Their Spring Festival is 11am-3pm on Saturday, March 31st, and their Easter Service is at 9:30am on Easter Sunday on the Village Green.

Happy Spring!

Featured Property Friday: A Secluded Beach Getaway

In many ways, the Live Oak Villas are a near-perfect getaway on Seabrook. Close to the beach and the hustle and bustle of the Beach Club (in reality, it’s just a short bike ride!), but nestled amongst the Live Oaks and palms of the Lowcountry.

Near the secluded and gorgeous Camp St. Christopher, this community is tucked away from Seabrook Island Road on the golf course, offering both privacy and activity. Fun fact: there is even a walking path to nearby Privateer Creek Road! And 2777 Live Oak Villa is about as perfect as they come.

Beautifully updated and open, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is an end unit located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on the 15th hole of Crooked Oaks Golf Course.

Think: gorgeous Southern pine hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, new cabinetry and vanities and new showers. + it has beachy and coastal décor to boot!

Celebrating March Holidays!

Happy March everyone!

March has always seemed like a beginning to me. A fresh start to the new year, finally out of the winter doldrums and the promise of spring close by. There are lots of great holidays in March to celebrate: St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th, the first day of Spring on the 20th, Palm Sunday on the 25th, the start of Passover on the 31st and National Puppy Day on the 23rd. Yes, that is an actual day. Who doesn’t like puppies!

We had 31 new listings in February. This breaks the office record of 16 new listings that was set back in 2015! Kudos to Seabrook Island Real Estate’s hardworking agents – I have found them to be both knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to Seabrook Island. We have seen such an increase in traffic, that we will soon need an increase in inventory. When it comes to real estate, I never predict what may happen in the future. But, starting strong is a good indicator of how we might finish.

Recently, I took my dogs to the beach and met quite a few dog parents – what a wonderful place for our four-legged family members to hang out. So, in honor of National Puppy Day, I have included a few special “puppies” that need homes! For adoption information, contact the Charleston Animal Society at 843.329.1541.

Featured Property Friday: Life on a Lagoon

When I was making a list of properties to feature on #FeaturedPropertyFriday, 2455 The Haul Over was at the very top! Situated on a cul-de-sac and overlooking a large lagoon with views of the 4th hole of Ocean Winds, + 3,900+ sq ft of living space, it’s a great family home. Although the interior spaces are stunning, this home’s view is what truly makes it unique.

Originally built in 2007 by Tom Berl of Surfside Construction, this stucco home was carefully designed with family in mind with great attention to detail.

It was even featured in Charleston Home & Design Magazine in 2008!

Featured Property Friday: The Charm of Eclectic Decor

After a brief hiatus in January, due to the holidays and the New Year, I am back with our first #FeaturedPropertyFriday post of 2018!

We’ve had some great properties listed this year thus far (we are at 26 new listings in February alone!) making the decision to pick a home for our first Featured Property DIFFICULT. I settled on 2941 Baywood Drive for three primary reasons: 1. Homeowner Bonnie’s sense of style is out of this world cool. Just wait until you see photos! 2. Its floor plan features an open concept that is so hot on the market right now, making it a great house to entertain in. And 3. It’s in a great location.

Welcome to 2941 Baywood Drive!
