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.

This homesite is now available for $249,000,

habersham_living_room_404It is so easy to be fall in love with Habersham, one of Beaufort, SC's most sought-after communities. As much as any other community in Beaufort, Habersham has the ability to reach out and really grab you.

Habersham features a river-front pool with viewing tower, a fabulous tennis center, a children's play area constructed of salvaged Redwood trees, oak-lined boulevards, a bustling town center with thriving businesses, and old-style architecture which hearkens back to Beaufort at the turn of the 20th Century.

And yet, many real estate observers predicted doom for Habersham's development team when the neighborhood broke ground in the late-1990s. The reasons among naysayers were --
