Dataw Island condoSometimes, a property price will just jump up and grab you. During recent research via the Beaufort Multiple Listing Service on behalf of a pair of prospective buyers, we came across a couple of such properties. One is a homesite in Habersham, and the other is a condo on Dataw Island.

The old real estate investor saying is that you make your money when you buy your property, not when you sell.

The Habersham homesite has just been reduced to an eye-popping $23,900. Before the real estate bubble busted, this same  homesite was listed for $104,000, and even at that price was the least expensive lot in the neighborhood, by about $40,000 at the time. This homesite sold for more than $60,000 back in 2007.

The Dataw Island condo is listed at $132,000, down

Why do you need a Realtor? Look no further than listing #120424 in the Beaufort Multiple Listing Service. It is a homesite on Dataw Island, one of the premier country club communities in South Carolina. The homesite is listed for $10,000. It sounds like an incredible opportunity.

We received an inquiry about this property the other day. Dataw Island, for those of you living outside of the Lowcountry, was developed in the 1980s by Alcoa, which did a great job with the planning and construction of this community, built around two Pete Dye golf courses. Dataw is just a few minutes east of historic Beaufort, SC, and has one of the best marinas in South Carolina.

Today I thought we could take a look at the 2009 Dataw Island housing market.  This subdivision is the most popular retirement community in the Beaufort area.  I looked at this area because while the remainder of Beaufort Country was hit very hard in 2008 by the real estate slump, Dataw bucked that trend.  In 2008, no community in the local MLS witnessed more closings than Dataw Island.  The island saw 34 houses change hands which was extraordinary considering the state of our market.  What's even more impressive is that twelve of the fore mentioned transactions were above $500,000.  I am certainly not saying sales were not down from the glory years of 2005 and 2006.  What I am saying is while affected, this neighborhood hasn't seen the decline that

Although 2008 was statistically one of the worst years on record for the real estate industry, ERA Evergreen saw gains in market share and sales on Dataw Island from 2007.  ERA is now the #1 selling real estate company that serves Dataw Island.  These great sales results have benefited Dataw Island in more ways than one.  Not only is the island now open to the entire Beaufort Multiple Listing Service (enabling other agents to sell on Dataw), but for every home or lot that ERA sells, they pay back a 25% referral fee to Dataw Island Club.  Those funds go directly into the Dataw Island marketing fund, which has seen great success in exposing Dataw Island to the world.  "Not only dose the marketing program bring in home buyers and sellers, "says ERA
