We are seeing more and more properties in the Beaufort and Lowcountry area that have that wow factor. A home or homesite possesses the wow factor when it is listed -- or sells for -- a price which you just wouldn't have imagined a few years ago.

For instance, earlier this week, a 3000-plus square foot tidal creek home on Lady's Island, one of Beaufort's best residential areas, went under contract for less than $525,000. Just a short while ago, this Pleasant Point home would have been likely listed in the mid-$700,000-range. And it is very easy to envision this home valued in that same price range when the market strengthens again. And, friends, bear in mind that $525,000 was merely the asking price. At that price, it already had the wow factor, but who

11 Governors Trace, Cat Island SCOn Monday, one of my favorite houses in Olde Tabby Park, a neighborhood on Cat Island, was listed for sale.  11 Governors Trace hit the market priced at $417,000. I am excited as this is one of the best homes on Cat Island, and the listing agent did a great job pricing the house.  

So what makes this home so special?  To name a couple:  layout, curb appeal, 3000+ square footage, and quality of build.  Something else to mention, that will really sell this house, is the lot  and the location of the lot.  The lot itself is unique because it is large, well-maintained and is draped with magnificent oaks.  It is located in a private portion of Olde Tabby Park and overlooks the fairway and lake.  Across the street are protected wetlands, which will forever give

31_sheffield_ave._640For potential buyers who are interested in living on Cat Island, a new home listing has just hit the market.  31 Sheffield Ave was listed just listed today (Nov 23rd).  The price is at a fair $322,500.  I currently live on the island and love the location of this home.  While the setting is secluded, finding your way to the pool, tennis courts, British Open Pub and golf is only a short stroll down the street.  Here you will find very little traffic as Sheffield is the last turn off the Island Causeway.  Here are some other details about the house:

31 Sheffield Details:

  • Allison Ramsey Design - Lowcountry Bermuda Cottage
  • 1782 Square Feet
  • Views of 3rd Fairway and Pond/Lagoon
  • Wrap-Around Porch
  • 1st Floor Master Bedroom (2 vanities)
  • Central Vacuum

cat_island_sc_real_estate_1280 Today I'll break down some of the active listing numbers on one of the more popular communities in Beaufort SC, Cat Island.  So far in 2009 only one home has sold in the neighborhood, and it was priced at $359,000.  Looking at the current houses under contract, you will see a trend that seems to be universal in today's market:  lower end homes are what's selling.  High end properties are nowhere to be found in most market reports I do.  My prediction is you won't see Luxury properties selling again until Spring 2010.

Out of the 3 homes under contract, 2 are in Olde Tabby Park and one is in the Dolphin Point area.  For the rest of 2009 you can expect homes in Olde tabby Park to see to see the most activity as prices are generally on the lower end on the

117_dolphin_point_dr._330 Listen, I know the market is down and home prices are falling, but this week a house on Cat Island was relisted at a price even I couldn't believe.  117 Dolphin Point Drive hit the Beaufort MLS listed at an unbelievable $399,900.  For those who are not familiar with Cat Island, the Dolphin Point area is extremely nice and generally priced a little higher than other areas of the island.  In three years of watching the MLS, this is the first time I have ever seem a home on Dolphin Point listed under $400,000.

The original listing date for this property was in May of 2008.  The price (get ready to be shocked) $649,000.  From the original price, reduction is 38%.

This past winter, my wife and I took a look at the inside of the home, and it is just

To everyone who believes that the Beaufort County Board of Realtors MLS is the only place to find a home in Beaufort SC, check out this Cat Island SC home I found on eBay.  Earlier this week I was searching eBay for property and stumbled upon a home for sale only 5 doors down from me.  66 National Blvd was previously listed on the Beaufort SC MLS but after a try with a local Realtor, the home owner has decided to give it a try on eBay.  Actually, I think it's a pretty good idea.  A better idea might be to have it in the MLS, eBay, FSBO.com and a few other locations too.

Personally, I think this is one of the cutest homes in Olde Tabby Park.  My wife and I live a few doors down, and always comment on how cute it is.  Previously listed at over $500,000,

11 Governors Trace, Beaufort SC

Because I love living here, and I am a Realtor, I have made Cat Island a major focus for my business.  With  that being the case, I try to keep up with the neighborhood home listings as soon as they hit the market. 

On Friday, one of my favorite houses in Olde Tabby Park (a section on the island) went for sale.  11 Governors Trace hit the market priced @ $535,000.  I am excited as this is one of the best homes on Cat and the listing agent did a great job pricing the house.  

So what makes this home so special?  To name a couple:  layout, curb appeal, 3000+ square footage, quality of build, and price.  While 11 Governors Trace has all that, the thing that will sell this house is the lot and location of the lot.  The lot itself is unique because it is
