  • Life on the May River

    In Bluffton, there is no denying that the May River is the source of life’s rhythm in this booming coastal town. A saltwater estuary of the Atlantic Ocean which flows in from Calibogue Sound near Hilton Head Island for miles inland through the heart of Bluffton, the May River is a place for locals to come together and enjoy the saltwater during every season.

    When people move to the May River in Old Towne Bluffton, they typically never move away. The following listing is a great example of an available property in our portfolio located on the May River. 

    This splendid home located at 22 Kirks Bluff Road has it all to live your best Bluffton life; deep water dock and dazzling sunset views from a perfectly situated porch, neighborly dolphins, and a quick golf cart drive to the charming shops and restaurants in Old Town. Four spacious bedrooms, four luxurious Baths and an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, with granite and marble, give this home ample space and a luxurious vibe. The master bedroom is a true retreat with an area perfectly suited for an office or private sitting area overlooking the May River.

    One interesting fact about the May River is that The Town of Bluffton has taken tremendous steps to protect the May River with extensive stormwater drainage controls in place that keep the May River as one of the most pristine saltwater tributaries in South Carolina.

    Making the choice to live directly on the May River with access to your own private Deepwater dock makes fishing or keeping a boat, Kayak, standup paddle board, or jet skis on hand quite convenient.

    We would be pleased to assist you in finding your perfect place along the shoreline so feel free to search all offerings along the May River right here on our website or call us for information any time.

  • Boosting your Hilton Head Island Area Home Curb Appeal

    Curb-Appeal-Seminar-at-The-Lowcountry-Home-Garden-ShowFirst impressions are everything in real estate, and curb appeal can be the lure you need to catch more buyers and beat out the other homes for sale near you. Buyers, those who are just getting started and serious home hunters alike, will start by scanning neighborhoods for homes or by looking online for appealing listings. If you can hook them from the get go, you’ll be one step closer to closing.

    By making your home welcoming to buyers, they’ll have an easier time picturing themselves living in the house. If they like what they see from the sidewalk, they’ll carry that impression as they tour from room to room. If they start off on the wrong foot, however, it can color their opinion of the whole property. Small changes to curb appeal can go a long way!

    Presenting your home in a professional way can also help set the bar for the type of buyers that tour and put in offers. Qualified buyers will take your home seriously, and you’ll have an easier time getting the price you want.

    Take a hard look at your home, and try to detach yourself. How does a buyer see the house? Are there attributes that suit your taste, but not necessarily everyone’s? Take a walk around and make a list of potential changes. Fixes can be simple and don’t have to cost a fortune.

     

    Here’s our quick list of curb appeal tips:

    • Start with a yard clean-up: mow the lawn, trim or prune plants and trees, and keep the front entrance clear.
    • Climb (safely) to your gutters and clear them out.
    • Wash and squeegee your windows, and make sure to clean the screens.
    • Arrange patio furniture or put away any pieces that look tired.
    • Edit your selection of outdoor pots and planters, keeping only those that are filled with healthy plants.
    • Spruce up your trees and planters with mulch or wood chips.
    • Hide garbage cans, tools, and supplies to keep the clutter to a minimum.
    • Take care of the siding and driveway with a power wash.
    • Touch up little details such as the trim around the doors or windows.
    • Replace what you can on your roof, particularly if it’s just a few broken shingles.
    • Clean up your mailbox or invest in a new one.

    Need tips on how to boost your curb appeal? We’ve got experts in the Hilton Head Island area with trained eyes, ready to lend a hand! Just let us know how we can help.
