SOLD!: Immaculate Bluffton Charm: 91 Wheatfield Cir Bluffton, SC 29910

Property Site:
It's hard to balance charm and practicality, but this one-level popular model in Bluffton's The Farm does just that.  The home's one owner has kept the property immaculate, with thoughtful additions and details that will make it not only easy to fall in love with but easy to make your own.

Beautifully Organized

The first thing you notice when you enter the main living space is the soaring ceilings.  The beautiful height makes the home feel even larger than its spacious 1700+ square feet, and the open floor plan contributes to this feeling of spaciousness.  The home features tile throughout the entry and large eat-in kitchen, with comfortable neutral carpet throughout the rest of the home. 

One of the unique features of this Beaufort model is the flexible room that has been built where a traditional porch would normally go. The homeowner uses it as a formal dining room, but it really has infinite possibilities, adaptable to whatever your needs are.  It would make a bright office, a lovely playroom, or a great crafting space.  Because of the architectural details of the arch and pillar, the room feels both connected to the family room but also distinct. 
 One of the best details in this home is the bright eat-in kitchen.  It opens to the living room, making it great for entertaining, and features a large eat-in area.  The light from the glass doors, which lead out to the backyard and a lagoon view, keeps the entire room sunny and friendly.  The cabinets are large and offer plenty of storage, as does the attached pantry.
 One of the unique elements of this home is the extended master bedroom. This room is also bright, with soaring ceilings, and plenty of room for whatever you need. The extended room will easily accommodate even the largest King sized bed and dresser, but might also work well for a home office, a sitting area, or even a place for a new baby to sleep.  Whatever your family needs, this extended master can handle. This room is the definition of a retreat.
 The two other bedrooms are also nicely sized, with closet space and bright windows. 

Though the gorgeous lagoon views are impressive, as is the nicely landscaped backyard, the practical elements of the home are also impressive. This separate laundry area will certainly help keep things tidy and the specialty coating on the roof will keep your home energy efficient. 

These unique, thoughtful details make this home truly special.  Come see  this centrally located home, complete with a one-year home warranty, and fall in love.

 Property Site:

This charming starter home or investment property, centrally located between Bluffton and Hilton Head Island, is the perfect candidate for a person with patience that will pay off.  This bankruptcy short sale features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and more than 1500 square feet for $129,900.

The curb appeal of this home cannot be denied. The charmingly landscaped front yard features an adorable picket fence and lattice, with plenty of grass and manicured beds.

This home features a great room, brightened by numerous windows and warmed by a fireplace in the center of the home.  A large kitchen, with plenty of counter and cabinet space is open to the rest of the room, creating a great place to cook and entertain friends. A formal dining space extends off of the kitchen, slightly set off from the rest of the living space but still open to the area to allow for both privacy and connection. 


The home features a split bedroom plan, with the master on one side of the great room and the two guest bedrooms on the other side with the second bathroom.  All are nicely sized, with plenty of closet space, though the master bedroom boasts this spacious master bath retreat, with a large shower and sunken tub, as well as double sinks and plenty of storage.   

 If you're looking for some outdoor areas for play as well, this home will surprise you. In addition to the beautifully landscaped front yard, you'll love the side yard and the screened back porch.  The one car garage is easy to access either from the driveway or the doors off the side yard, offering not only a place for your vehicle but also an additional storage option.

Three Reasons Why Winter is the BEST time for Selling

If you ask anyone when the best time to sell your home is, you'll probably hear springtime. The weather is warm and comfortable, people are getting the itch to organize their homes (and realize maybe they've outgrown their homes after all), and the school year is nearly over. 

But I believe that winter can be just as lucrative for sellers as spring.  Don't believe me? Let me give you three reasons why, in my experience, December through March can be a great time to list your home with an experienced, motivated agent.

Less Competition

While your home will certainly find the right buyer, it's a lot easier to find that buyer when yours is one of the few available in a certain price range.  Bluffton homes under $300K, for example, are incredibly scarce right now.  A finished, beautifully staged, and ready-to-sell home (complete with a home warranty) makes a great impression on motivated buyers, especially when they don't have to see one hundred homes before they find yours.

Motivated Buyers

People looking for homes in the winter are motivated to buy. They typically know what they want, have done research into the areas they'd like to buy in, and have already been prequalified for a mortgage.  They're ready to make a decision, motivated by their own circumstances (which may be time-sensitive) rather than lovely weather and a bit of an idea that they might want to see what's out there. 

Internet Traffic

If you're looking for a home, and it's 35 degrees and raining outside, where will you start? The internet of course! Research has shown that internet searches on homes go up during the winter, because people are stuck at home more often and want to see what's available.  When your beautiful home is listed, and marketed heavily through social media and popular real estate websites, you'll see interest and traffic go up, increasing the likelihood of finding the right buyer more quickly.

If you've been thinking about listing your home, give me a call. Let's chat about the strategies that will help you get the most for your home--and help you find your next step.
