The real estate deals and steals in Beaufort, SC are still around but they seem to be going under contract much faster than 2010 or even January 2011. The cold miserable weather in much of the country and low interest rates seem to be helping real estate momentum in Beaufort. The properties that are priced right no matter if it is short sale, foreclosure, or informed seller are selling. Some properties that I recommended to an investor last week were "under contract" in less than 3 days.
The Wall Street Journal predicted the first week in February that the bottom of the real estate market was here or near. The Island Packet real estate section in Sunday's February 20, 2011 revealed that 2nd home buyers are back as evidence by the number of sales on Hilton Head, Fripp Island, and Harbor Island in the Lowcountry.
