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.

Real estate agents are considered to be essential workers in many areas. Therefore, even the pandemic is not going to make it completely go on a pause. Realtors are one of the frontline heroes who help keep our communities and economy intact. For this reason, there are local safety protocols that we should obey and strictly implement so that we do not compromise ourselves and those around us.

Here are five safety measures we recommend everyone to follow when performing realtor duties.

1. Bring disinfectant wipes and wipe all doorknobs and light switches before and after you touch them.

2. Be mindful not to touch surfaces unless necessary. If lights are on do not turn them off if the home is occupied! If interior doors are open do not shut them if the home is occupied.

3. If a client has had symptoms of fever or respiratory illness such as coughing, shortness of breath, or sneezing, please refrain from showing at this time. If a virtual tour or video is available, and if applicable, have the client view the material in the MLS.

4. Refrain from bringing children or extra family members or friends that are not the decision-makers into the home during the showing to ensure that social distancing can still be implemented.

5. Plan and schedule showings so none will overlap with other agents. Physical distancing must be observed at all times.
