The coast is clear in the Lowcountry. Residents have returned to the Island and businesses have opened their doors. Public roads were clear on Tuesday as residents were allowed to return to their homes on Hilton Head. Many residents experienced downed limbs and slight debris. Some areas in the Lowcountry experienced flooding, but for the most part, the damage to our area was minimal after Tropical Storm Irma.
Since Irma, weather conditions have been nothing short of perfect. The sun is shining and warming our hearts and homes. As we go about our day to day business, one cannot miss the surrounding beauty of our area and realize, this is why we “love where we live.”
Concerning real estate in our area, the market experienced a slight dip during the evacuation, but signs of strengthening are visible. From September 8th through 11 am today, seventeen properties went under contract, and six of the seventeen involved Charter One Realty. Our sales professionals are showing property today, and our website traffic is steady, providing site visitors with interest.
Our sincere thanks go out to the many individuals who worked to clean up, restore power and help us return to life as usual in the Lowcountry.
