Sea Pines Southern Tip

I'm delighted to report, Hilton Head Island's real estate market for 2017, was healthy and posted positive sales numbers year-over-year. We had more buyers falling in love and following through on their dreams than we've seen in years, resulting in an 8.8 percent increase in homes sold island-wide. The irresistible draw of the island's active lifestyle raised the median price for a home on Hilton Head by 3 percent to $535,000.

Several of our oceanfront communities had outstanding years with double digit gains to their median home values. They include Sea Pines, Shipyard, Palmetto Dunes and Folly Field.

After more than 30 years, and using the latest technology available, FEMA has finally updated and released their highly anticipated preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for Beaufort County showing how a 100-year flood event is likely to impact your property. As a result, big changes are in the making for flood insurance requirements on a number of properties around Hilton Head Island, including Sea Pines Plantation. Homes that are presently required to carry flood insurance for mortgage purposes will no longer have that requirement if they're located in FEMA's newly created Zone X (Shaded and Unshaded).

Homes in Zone X (Shaded and Unshaded) are being reclassified onto higher ground with a moderate to minimal risk of flooding. This creates

There's an old axiom to purchasing real estate, "location, location, location." That's exactly what folks have in mind when purchasing a villa or townhouse in Turtle Lane Club at The Sea Pines Resort.

Turtle Lane Club is a private gated oceanfront enclave of 13+ acres nestled in the heart of Sea Pines Plantation. It's located only steps away from the extraordinary top-shelf amenities offered by two of The Sea Pines Resort's finest attractions.

The first is the fabulous Sea Pines Beach Club, where you can embrace the ocean while dinning either indoors or on the seaside patio at Coast. You'll also discover the island's finest libations are served upstairs with endless views of the Atlantic Ocean at the sophisticated Ocean Lounge.

By the time Hurricane Irma passed across Hilton Head Island it was downgraded to a tropical storm and behaved much like a typical winter nor'easter.

Our problems came from the storm surge created by the massive size of Irma as she drifted north over the west coast of Florida and pushed a 4 foot wall of water up the east coast from Jacksonville to Charleston. This happend exactly as we were having an 8 foot king tide. The tidal gauge at Fort Pulaski recorded Irma's high water mark to be 12.24 feet which was just shy of Hurricane Matthew's record of 12.50 feet.

Our beaches took the same hit as they did during
