Families have different priorities when it comes to relocating to different areas. Some would favor location with great amenities for the kids and the entire family to enjoy. While others will consider the size of the property and the number of rooms at the top of their must-have list. The moving season officially starts in April and ends in September, but due to the pandemic the movement of people had stalled for a few months and homebuyers housing demands declined for a few months. Now that many businesses are starting to open and operate again and people are going back to work, there are a lot of homebuyers feeling more comfortable in resuming their search for their next family home. So if your family favors location, community amenities, the size of the lot, and the square footage of the home, our Top 3 Best Cities in SC to live and raise your family are Beaufort, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island.

Beaufort is one of South Carolina's coastal areas and it's known for its antebellum mansions especially in the historic downtown.

Bluffton is a Lowcountry town with a great mixture of new families and many different style homes such as villas, townhomes, and modern homes. It is close to the beach and less than 20 minutes from Savannah, GA.

Hilton Head Island offers residents a suburban mix feel with highly-rated public school systems and minutes from the beach.

The common question is "Is it a good time to sell a property given the current situation?"

Homelight recommends listing your home as soon as possible if you are planning to sell your property within the next 24 months. If the economy comes to a significant decline, it will be more challenging to sell your home in the next 6 months versus now. Some of the buyers may have come to a halt on their home search, but those who remain financially stable would be enticed by low mortgages and more balanced market conditions. It is recommended to work with a realtor you can rely on as it is key to making the plan of selling your home to fruition. You and your realtor can have meetings using teleconferencing apps such as Zoom, FaceTime, GoToMeeting, and Skype if you are not comfortable with meeting in person. If you prefer to practice physical distancing, tapping in on technology is a great way to efficiently accomplish getting your home listed and on time. There are various virtual showing tools and applications that your realtor can use to show your home to potential buyers and restrict the physical showing of the property to the most serious buyers while taking all the extra health and safety measures. You can also use this time to declutter your home, spruce up the landscaping all while adding value to your home.

For all of your real estate needs, call the professionals you can rely on. Call Scott Realty Professionals.

For most people, moving from one home to another can be wearisome. Scheduling your move is one great way to make the experience a smoother and happier one for you and your entire family. 

When is the best time to move? Many people will say that summertime is the most ideal time to pack your bags and call your movers; we agree!

The long days and abundance of daylight make it more manageable to move in and out of a home, especially if you are not hiring a moving company. Moving in the summer means no school will be disrupted if you have kids and that could mean an extra set of hands to help with the packing and moving.

Summertime is selling season in many markets, so as the sun heats up, so does the housing market.


Call Scott Realty Professionals to start the home buying or selling process just in time for summer!

MOVE INTO YOUR DREAM HOME THIS YEAR!

We've just entered the first quarter of the year and it is already beginning to look promising as things start to pick up in the real estate market. The new year seems to be staying true to what the term 20-20 means, which is a clear vision. According to realtor.com, a lot of home buyers will start shopping for a new home early January this year. This is attributed to the sub-4% mortgage rates, low unemployment, and higher wages. Also according to realtor.com, "January saw a surge, ranking as the top month in 20 of the 100 largest metro areas, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, San Francisco, Atlanta, San Jose, California, and Denver."
