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.

Had a busy morning work wise and also with taking a continuing education course. But I find there is nothing better to focus and energize me for the day, than taking a moment to breathe and enjoy the view. That’s especially important here in the lowcountry, as I realize that is why people want to mover here and buy real estate.
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.
Are you wondering what your home is worth and if it’s time to sell? Well it very well might be. Inventory is down 10% overall in the Hilton Head area, and even more in the the under $300,000 price point. Many buyers are struggling to find the home they really want because of the inventory shortage. But you are wondering, has my home value recovered from the recession… And what would it be valued at on the market today?
Feeling frigid today? Would a Hilton Head Island ocean front home with fireplace warm you up? There are 35 to choose from today. Call me if you’d like this kind of cozy living. Lori Bee, eXp Realty, 843-505-3132
