One of the most common questions I get is , “How’s the market?” As many of you know, it’s been crazy busy! Inventory is in short supply but the deals are still happening. I encourage buyers to be prepared and to be patient.
All of us are working harder than ever, to find your piece of paradise or even to sell it. Multiple offers and quick sales often come with lots and lots of extra paperwork and negotiating. It often entails more liability as well with disgruntled buyers who didn’t win in the multiple offer process.
The best strategy like is I said, is to be prepared (pre-approved) and to be patient. While we all know how important this process is to you and that you really want THAT home, it’s also best to treat it as it actually is: a business transaction. It’s also good to remember that many times, an even better home comes along right after that first one got away. As I say, “Everything happens for a reason, even if we don’t know why that is right now.”
A good attitude can go a long way, in making the process less stressful for everyone.

It would be my pleasure!
Contrary to what one might think, most of us rarely go to the beach around here, even though we live so close. Life and work gets in the way, but somehow… we still feel the good vibrations of our beloved Atlantic mother in our souls.
I finally got a rare moment to celebrate another dear friend’s birthday with a visit to the ocean. I thought I’d take a moment to share a few pics this morning before I get back to work.
This is definitely the most peaceful time to visit Hilton Head Island. The beaches are empty other than a few locals walking or fishing. Total serenity that I soaked in before we get super busy with tourists and real estate. It was a fantastic way to renew my spirit and remind me why we are so blessed to live here.
Enjoy! And don’t forget to let me know how I can help you find your piece of paradise. 843.505.3132 or Lori@LoriBaden.com.

Today is the first day of showings for 56 Full Sweep, Hilton Head Island. Interest is off the hook for this stunning golf and private pool property that is thoroughly updated and turn key ready! Considering the calls and emails already, I do not expect this property to stay on the market for long.
I don’t even have back the official tour videos yet but if you are interested, you better contact Lori Baden at 843.505.3132 today! See below the video for a link to the listing on my website.
It’s been a while and this will be short, but expect to see more posts from me soon, but I have lots of reasons to celebrate during these trying times. I always try to focus on the positive and hope you are too.
I’m celebrating my daughter Hannah who graduated with honors amongst the chaos of Covid 19, from Belmont University and just moved to Nashville permanently to pursue a career in music business.
I’m celebrating the health of my son Jacob who is Charlotte and praying that he finds another job soon. He’s super smart and great at health and nutrition which a lot people need right now, so I’m hoping he’ll focus on that vs Food and Beverage.
I’m celebrating that my husband Joe has kept his job at Gulfstream so far, although he was switched to weekends. But that may not be an entirely bad thing…
Because… I’m celebrating that I’m now back in real estate sales full time vs being in a Broker or Management position. That means I’ll have my weekends free to work with you or someone you know.
I’m celebrating eXp Realty because even though they had to make some recent cutbacks, this model was built for this economic crises. We still have over 60 hrs of live training and networking per week!
I’m also celebrating that we now have over 28,000 agents that I can refer you to in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.
Let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton/ Beaufort markets or if you need a great referral agent. 853.505.3132
And last but not least, I’m celebrating Mother’s Day weekend. It’s the hardest and best job I’ve ever had. I’m sure all of you will join me in that celebration!
So in case you didn’t notice, my name has changed. Yes, that’s a good thing. Actually, a great thing. I got married on Black Friday, ending 47 years of Bachelorhood for my Joe. LOL.
Actually, I’m the one that’s blessed… he waited 47 years to find “the one.”
We got married at home here in our barn. It was a gloriously beautiful fall day. Just perfect. I hope all of you will rejoice with us. We are truly best friends, in love.
And as a side note, I’ve been crazily busy with work too. Yes, I’m still in real estate. Still with eXp Realty. It’ll be 4 years soon. Since then we’ve grown from just over 1000 agents to 25,000+ nationally, and from 40 to well over 700 here in SC. Production volume has grown from $90 million a year in 2017 to over $581 million here in SC, in 2019. To say I’m proud, is an understatement! As Designated Managing Broker, I oversee operations in South Carolina for this wonderful company.
We have over 30 agents here locally to assist you, and I do referrals all the time. Locally, statewide and nationally. Let me know if I can assist you in finding your piece of paradise, like I’ve found mine. It would be my pleasure.
Hear it here first… an update from Senator Tom Davis, on the future of the Jasper Ports. This project would mean so much to Jasper and Beaufort Counties in South Carolina, and to Savannah, Georgia too.
Call me, Lori Bee- eXp Realty, to assist you with your future in Jasper County. I live here and I care. 843-505-3132
