It’s no surprise to those of us living in South Carolina’s low country that the area has gained significant national attention in recent years. After all, we enjoy some of the country’s most pristine beaches, impressive lifestyle amenities, and stunning waterfront properties. It’s especially unsurprising to those of us who have spent decades in the local real estate business to learn that the place we call home has been recognized by major publications as an emerging luxury real estate market. Earlier this year, Mansion Global published an article titled: “Forget Florida—South Carolina Low Country Is the Top U.S. Luxury-Home Market.” In June, The New York Times published a piece with the title: “Riverfront Luxury in South Carolina’s Lowcountry,” which featured smaller inland towns, like Beaufort and Bluffton, that are seeing a surge of real estate buying activity.

The low country has striking natural beauty, distinctive geographical features, rich history, and of course, Southern charm, so it’s no wonder buyers have recognized it as an ideal place to call home or invest in real estate. The region is adorned with an abundance of rivers, creeks, and barrier islands, creating a breathtaking landscape where land and water converge. In addition to its stunning natural beauty, the low country tells tales of American history at every turn. Beaufort homes are hallmarked by their well-preserved antebellum architecture that dates back to the colonial era and Civil War, while Bluffton has deep roots in agriculture that are visible throughout the dynamic coastal community and its eclectic arts scene.

As lifelong residents of this coastal wonderland, we understand the area’s appeal. And as longtime real estate agents, we have been happy and fortunate to share our “hidden gem” with countless people, and the number is growing with each day that passes. As people all over the world become privy to the allure of life in the low country, we’re happy to act as ambassadors and reveal the best homes and amenities the region has to offer.

Hilton Head Island homes have long been known for the luxuriously laid-back lifestyle they afford. Whether you’re looking to be near the beach, the Intracoastal Waterway, golf courses, tennis, or hiking and biking, owning a home on Hilton Head Island will put you in the center of it all. The amenities here are abundant and provide a wide range of options, and the same can be said about the properties.

A key feature of Hilton Head Island, Beaufort, and Bluffton homes is that many provide desirable waterfront living. These exclusive waterfront estates are irresistible to anyone who loves fishing, boating, and stunning views. By landing one of these properties, you can gain access to deep-water and private docks, ingraining water sports and recreation into the everyday life of you and your family. Choosing to live in the low country, whether it be in Beaufort, Bluffton, or on Hilton Head Island, will give you access to world-class golf courses, top-of-the-line equestrian facilities, and countless amenities. The properties vary from the charming Antebellum architecture of Beaufort homes to the custom-built Hilton Head Island homes that embody luxury and sophistication. Oh, and don’t forget about Bluffton homes, with their large lots and proximity to the May River. Given the area’s Southern charm, thriving communities, diverse property types, and abundance of amenities, it’s no wonder major publications are recognizing the low country real estate market for the treasure that it is.
