Hear this BREAKING NEWS from me first!!!!
This is awesome news for the area! I’m stoked!
NIXLE ALERT: “New Margaritaville development set for Hardeeville.
The city of Hardeeville is one of the fastest growing cities in the state of South Carolina. The trend will hopefully continue with the announcement of a new development being built along highway 278. Minto Communities and Margaritaville Holdings announced their second Latitude Margaritaville location today. It will be built in the city of Hardeeville on Highway 278, two and a half miles east of I-95.
The active adult residential community will feature homes built for the 55-and better community with a “no worries” tropical vibe of Margaritaville. The 2,739-acre community will include a 72-acres site for 290,000-square foot Margaritaville-inspired festive retail center. Earlier this year, Minto and Margaritaville holdings broke ground in Daytona Beach, Florida for the first Latitude Margaritaville community. Hardeeville Mayor, Harry Williams says, “Hardeeville will now become the place for retirees from across the country who want to enjoy the beauty and amenities of the region>” The mayor went on to say the retail shops and restaurants will make Hardeeville a destination spot for the entire Lowcountry area. The city of Hardeeville is excited about this venture. We truly look forward to working with Minto and Margaritaville holdings on the Hilton Head Latitude Margaritaville Community.”

Memorial Day Weekend and the summer boating season is upon us. I love boating and understand the desire to have that perfect lowcountry home with deep water access. Check out the links above to find your dream estate on the water.
I’m a member of both the Beaufort MLS and the Hilton Head MLS, so I can help you find your dream come true, in just about any area of the lowcountry. Let me put my 17 years of experience to work for you. 843-505-3132
Thought some of you, like me, might like the real report on the area market, in that link above. So many times when you ask an agent, “how is the market doing?” They simply respond, “Great!” Well, it actually is going pretty well but it’s a bit more complicated than that.
Prices are up a median of 5.4%. That’s good news. Pending sales are up 4%. Also good news. BUT… (there’s always a but, isn’t there?)…. New listings are down 10.1% and overall inventory is down 7.2%.
However a lot of that inventory is out of the price point that buyers are looking in (under $300K). We still have plenty of options at over $500K that are still drastically reduced from pre-recession days. There are still GREAT deals.
But we are facing an affordable housing shortage for relocating hospitality workers, school teachers, healthcare providers, fire and police officers, and more that will keep our community vibrant and functioning.
If you have a home in good condition available in the under $300,000 price range, I’d love to assist you in that sale today. I pride myself in my marketing and negotiation skills and would appreciate the opportunity to put my 17 years of experience to work for you. Give me a call at 843-505-3132 for your professional consultation.
While the little historical marker out on Route 462 is quaint, I have never once noted a vehicle traversing the long sandy drive to wherever his final resting place might be. While my inquisitiveness wanted me to explore, I know enough about the rural south to know that might not be a good idea alone. A few days ago, my brave man (who conceal carries) asked me if I wanted to explore. I jumped at the chance.
Not much remains of the Old Plantation. There is a sign indicating approximately where the house stood overlooking the Broad River. And the actual walled cemetery where Thomas Heyward and many of his descendants, including many young children who died at birth or infancy. It is a serene sight with the tall mossy live oaks lining the driveway and overlooking the river, that the tourist websites promote. In spite of the nearby trailer and shanties nearby.
But there was something else that took me aback …. It was this….
Yeah… he has a SMIRK on his face. LOL! None of the other photos I’ve seen online document this. As an avid fan of the defunct show, “Lie to Me,” I know a few things about facial expressions. Supposedly, looking up and to the left like this indicates honesty. So I presume Mr. Heyward wanted us to believe he was honest.
But that pursed lip… What indeed was that indicative of? Disapproval? Control? Witholding opinion? Lying? I don’t know but I can’t help but think about this eternal bust of a man that helped found this country. What indeed is he thinking? What do you think he is trying to tell us?
