Investing In Island Real Estate
Ever since Charleston's barrier islands were discovered by the rest of the world, they have been a popular and a financially wise place to invest. Even though real estate has taken a hit here like the rest of the country did due to the economic recession, it has recovered and is currently thriving. The coastal areas of America are where people migrate, with most of America's population living along the coast. When buying on the islands, the appreciation tends to be even greater than inland. Supply and demand dictates this as there is a lot of land inland, but a limited supply of beach property.
When investing on an island, you need to make sure you deal with someone who knows the market and the islands. Every area has its own attributes, and yes, even sometimes, special conditions. It's vital to know which beaches are healthy and which ones have had erosion. Right now, all the beaches look great, but in a few areas, millions of dollars were spent in beach re-nourishment. Not all Realtors know the history of the island and buyers should be aware of this.
