How Do I Know When to Purchase?

However, some quantifiable data may help us find an answer together. From my perspective, I am seeing far less foreclosures and short sales this year, especially in the mid to luxury markets. …

Get Your Plaid On

After all the excitement of The Masters is over, all eyes turn to Hilton Head Island and the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament presented by Boeing. What great fun! If you have never been on the island for this special event, check your calendar to see if you can get away. The players often bring their families, rent a beach house, and have a relaxing …
