Sometimes, seeing is believing. We preach constantly that these are historic times to buy real estate in Beaufort, SC -- Prices have come down substantially the past few years, and interest rates are very low. But, from time to time, we need a few eye-openers as to the kind of authentic opportunities which exist in today's real estate market.

Mossy Oaks, Beaufort SC**On March 20, a waterfront home with a deep-water dock sold in Wright's Point Plantation for $475,000. I ave no doubts this home would have sold in the $1 million range a few years ago. To help put things in perspective for you real estate enthusiasts, consider that a smaller home with zero water-frontage, sold on March 10 in Wright’s Point sold for $416,000. And this non-waterfront home had originally been listed at $750,000.**A really nicely refurbished waterfront home in Burton, very convenient to downtown Beaufort, sold for just over $105,000 on March 17.  Just a few years ago, this same home sold for $245,000.

**A single-bedroom condo home in Mossy Oaks sold for $19,500 in January. That might make a really nice weekend getaway for someone, don't you think?

**And, on Dataw Island, one of the best country club communities in South Carolina, a lot sold in February for $3,900. Dataw Island has been the site of some phenomenal opportunities in recent months. Late last year, there were two homesites sold on Dataw for $6,000 apiece. Who would've thought?
