Out With the OLD, in With the NEW

There has been a lot of progress in the past year on providing options for “newer” or “new” construction Real Estate products on Seabrook. With the market becoming stronger almost daily, those options are growing as well.

Of course, the Salt Marsh at Seabrook townhomes have been a big hit, particularly with the introduction of the new 2,500 square foot duplex model. It’s worth taking a drive through their gate to see the mini-“building boom” that is going on.

A new player in the new construction game has arrived. Seabrook Island Real Estate has just begun to market four new construction, single family, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath homes in the $575,000 – $625,000 price range. These homes are being built by Loan Oaks Development Company on prime sites in Seabrook Village. Loan Oaks is a luxury builder with local roots, as well as on Martha’s Vineyard.

Of course, there is the recently completed, magnificent renovation of the Atrium Villas. The Atrium is essentially now a NEW building! From a marketing standpoint, Seabrook Island Real Estate is developing marketing materials to treat Atriums that way, when and if resale opportunities come along. We recently arranged for the Charleston Post & Courier to tour the new Atriums and they will be publishing a cover page article of this amazing project in their real estate section. (Stay tuned…)

Seabrook Island Real Estate, along with a quality local builder, is also exploring the idea of marketing “pre-approved” house plans to our prospects. These plans would be available to be built on the homesite chosen and purchased by our prospects. More on this as the year progresses.

2017 is off to a terrific start along with the stock market. If you are thinking about listing your property, the time is excellent! Contact your favorite Seabrook Island Real Estate agent today.

Congratulations Atrium Villas!

Spoiler alert: I have always loved the Atrium Villas. Just mere steps to the Island House + outstanding views of both the ocean and the golf course make this 44-unit community a can’t miss for renters and prospective buyers. Last year, the Atrium homeowners spearheaded a total overhaul of the Atriums’ exterior. (Think: new stucco walls, railings, windows, elevator and doors.) Our office was lucky enough to take a grand tour, plus peek in a few spectacular units (thank you Carl, Tom and Bill!), two weeks ago at our weekly Sales Meeting. And we were BLOWN away by the improvements!

In addition to our tour and hearing the new list of improvements first-hand, which are listed below, I returned to the Atriums the following week to take photos and fell in love all over again. (Because, did I mention? Those. views.) Carl and Bill were gracious enough to let me snap photos of both their ocean and golf views and the spectacular, updated interiors of their villas. I spent the majority of the morning wandering around with a camera in hand. Plus it didn’t hurt that the sun decided to stay out and give me a stunning blue sky backdrop – in January no less!

New Marketing Projects: “How I spent my Summer Vacation” Part I

Since it’s “back to school” time, I decided to treat this issue as my initial essay project of the new school year – “how I spent my summer vacation.”

First, much of the time was spent implementing new marketing ideas for spreading the word about real estate opportunities on Seabrook. You’ll notice new kiosk stands housing real estate guides at both the Beach Club and the Island House. The good news is that these have been flying off the shelves into the hands of potential prospects.

I also spent Wednesday mornings over the summer hosting breakfast “meet and greet” sessions in the Island House for Seabrook guests looking to buy property. The attendees ran the gamut of our normal prospect pipeline – from first-time visitors to a couple from the Southwest who have been visiting Seabrook for 6 years. All the meetings were extremely positive and usually the longtime visitors were gushing to the new guys about what a great place Seabrook is!

Stay tuned later this month for “how I spent my summer vacation” – part II! Welcome back to those who have been traveling, and here’s to a great end of the year real estate market!

Construction Update – Atrium Villas

Wow! Congratulations to the Atrium Villas for taking on the total redesign of their strategically located villa community. From everything I hear they are doing it right! Those in charge say they are creating an exterior look that is timeless in appearance and a structure that is all but maintenance-free and designed to last for decades to come.

DCIM100MEDIAWhen completed, the water-tight building envelope will be covered with an all new stucco exterior and brand new decks and walkways. In an effort to tie in the design with the nearby Island House, the new and improved Atrium will have railings similar to those used on the Club facility.

The renovation is bringing new life to the Atrium community and, given the highly prized Ocean and Golf view location, along with the quickly improving real estate market; it should add tremendous value going forward. I’m sure we all can’t wait to see the final product.
