Getting ready to buy a house on Hilton Head Island (or anywhere for that matter) takes
time and planning. If you are three or more years out from your Island Getaway, there are things you can start doing now to make the process more enjoyable and effortless. This is a three part series on how to get your Hilton Head Island Get-away.
Part 2 - One year out:
Start watching the market. Once you nd the Real Estate Agent that works best for you, ask them to set up an automated email, somemes called a drip campaign. This will send you anything that comes up in your area, price range, square footage, etc. This is important so you can begin to monitor the market.
Start THINNING your stuff. A year may seem like a long time to pack, but the sooner you start the better. Sort it, sift it, donate it, trash it. Go through your stuff. Don't love it, get rid of it. When you pack to move, this will be helpful. The less you have the move the easier it will be to get the job done.
