If you’re thinking of selling your home this year, timing is crucial. After all, you’ll want to balance getting the most out of the sale of your current home and making the best investment when you buy your next one.If that’s the case, you should know – you may be able to get the best of both worlds today. Here are four reasons why this spring may be your golden window of opportunity.1. The Number of Homes on the Market Is Still LowToday’s limited supply of houses for sale is putting sellers in the driver’s seat. There are far more buyers in the market today than there are homes available. That means purchasers are eagerly waiting for your house.Listing your house now makes it the center of attention. And if you work with a real estate professional to price your house correctly, you can...

 You might know that the real estate market is still HOT right now!  Did you know that NOT all real estate agents are the same? Did you know there is an advantage to the Sellers for hiring an agent who KNOWS this specific market?Someone who is willing to be patient, and who is willing to go the distance when you need an extra helping hand. It's worth doing your homework in researching agents.  An added bonus is working with a team! Our team has more time to give you, more resources, and more experience- our team combined has over 77 years of real estate experience to use and share with our clients. There are also a few things that realtors know, but the average "Joe Homeowner" may not, and it's about realtors. In case no one has shared this before, there are some who will reduce commiss...

Summer is a HOT time! Literally, and metaphorically! Typically Spring and Summer are the busiest times for house sales. This year is no exception. Officially, summer is June 21st, but it sure feels like summer already! The weather is HOT now in South Carolina, and the real estate market is still HOT as well!! If you are selling your home this summer, here are a few things to help you get your house ready for the Buyers, and the top of the list is the heat.1. Keep it cool inside your house. No one wants to walk into a stuffy home. Be sure the air is circulating well. We want to encourage people to stay and enjoy their viewing of your house.2. Focus on curb appeal. Keep your lawn in tip-top shape by watering and mowing regularly. Trim the bushes, plant flowers that are summer-heat toleran...

June 1st is known as the official beginning of Hurricane season. If you are superstitious, then, you know, we don't say the "h" word around here. The meteorologists are telling us that their data shows an active Hurricane season again for this year.  We realize that there is no perfect place in this country, and no perfect weather, all the time, but we think Pawleys Island is close to perfect! Pawleys Island sits in a bit on the coastline, so many times the weather comes up from the south and passes on by. However, if you are new to the area, or curious what to do when a hurricane heads our way,  we have a great guide we can send to you. Feel free to contact our office at 843-360-1672 or email Joanne@edgeofthebeach.com and ask for the Hurricane Guide for South Carolina. We will get it r...

 South Carolina's irresistibly inviting shoreline draws thousands of summertime visitors looking to tickle their toes in our warm, soft sand. None make more of a splash than the lovable LOGGERHEAD sea turtle. Weighing in at about 250 pounds, these impressive sea dwellers- the largest of all hard-shelled turtles-have become the darlings of eco-minded beach-goers from Florida up to North Carolina.  Each year between May and August, female loggerheads leave their ocean home to nest on our coast. They dig a large hole in the dry area of the beach near the sand dunes, deposit an average of 117 eggs then cover up the next to protect it from predators, before returning back into the ocean.Litchfield Beach and Huntington State Park just had their first nests just a couple of days ago!!

I'm sure all of you have heard the term "MULTIPLE OFFERS"!! The last couple of years have been non-stop. There is a difference with the offers received when we represent a Seller.  There are certain things we advise our sellers to pay attention to that being, pre-approval (not just pre-qualified); down payment monies, earnest money amount; and contingencies. It's not just about the offer price. When buyers call their lender seeking information about financing, one of the very first things to happen is that they become pre-qualified. That gives them a good idea of what they can afford, or more accurately, what loan amount they qualify for. However, you should take it one step further and ask to be pre-approved. When you become pre-approved, you actually apply for a loan. The lender check...

This is what WE did! We listed both of these properties at the end of last week.You may have seen our "For Sale" posts? We had an Open House ( the first one in more than a couple of years!) at 949 Old Plantation in Hagley Estates on Saturday.  Our clients had a narrow window for showing the home-  so we took advantage of the weekend and opened up the house!  It worked out great for our sellers and the many buyers and neighbors who came out to see the house and visit us! 949 Old Plantation went under contract this morning!Our listing at 92 Safe Harbor on the East side of the 17 in Pawleys had a good couple of days of showings and multiple offers.  The sellers accepted one of those offers on Sunday! It is also under contract!  We are always available for our clients, and their needs!  Giv...

  Homes that have been well-maintained and convey pride of ownership appeal to more motivated buyers.  Here are some simple steps you can take to ensure your home is in great shape to show when you are ready to sell:   - Clear and pack away clutter. - Sell or store excess furniture and show off that space and square footage. - No more than 3 items to a surface, table, countertop, or shelf.  - Use the same color, or style of décor to make the space flow.  - Clean the kitchen and baths until they sparkle. - Clean the globes of your overhead lights and change the light bulbs to a LED. - Clean your closets - extra storage space also helps sell homes. - Clean out the attic and garage. Neatly stack and store boxes.- Clean or replace carpets and/or other floorings, such as vinyl or hardwoods. ...
