SC second most popular state for relocation | Real Estate |

Many of us already know how special South Carolina and the coast is. A national study revealed top results for people wanting to move to the state.
Read the article below.

Loving a spouse may not be the only Valentine’s Day statistic to perk up Realtors and to make recent buyers know they’re coming to the right place.
Loving a state can be a big factor in where people buy.
And according to the latest National Movers Study by United Van Lines, South Carolina had the second highest rate of inbound movers in the country in 2014.
The study showed that 61 percent of movers in the Palmetto State were inbound, just four points behind leader Oregon.
North Carolina was the third most popular inbound destination, hard on the heels of South Carolina, the study said.
Vermont and Florida rounded out the top five for inbound popularity.
Those states with an outbound majority had potentially good news for South Carolina’s and the Grand Strand’s chances for continuing as top destinations.
New Jersey, New York and Illinois were one, two and three, respectively, for outbound movers, and all send a healthy share of the 14 million vacationers to the Grand Strand each year. Realtors find that repeat vacationers translate into second home and retirement home buyers.
Others in the top 10 outbound states include West Virginia, number five, Ohio number six and Pennsylvania and Connecticut as nine and 10. All are liberally represented among the out-of-state license plates frequently seen on the Grand Strand.

Small Town Christmas

DeBordieu is nicely located between Pawleys Island and Georgetown, two WONDERFUL small towns. The holidays offer many fun things to do and attend. We have been on the go enjoying the holiday season by visiting Brookgreen Garden’s Night of a Thousand Candles. We went to Georgetown’s Christmas Parade and later attended the Georgetown Christmas Boat Parade. It is great to live on the coast in small town America!

We were at Brookgreen for their Christmas Tree Lighting...

Winter Maintenance Tips For Vacation Rentals Property

Winter is here, and it affects even us on the coast of South Carolina. I am a Zillow Premier agent. They recently sent these winter maintenance tips for rental properties (vacation properties too). Take a look below.

Winter maintenance tips for your rental property

Keep your properties warm and dry this season by reducing tenant work orders before they happen – with some preventative maintenance, of course. Avoid the hazards of cold weather by completing these action items before the temperatures dip.

Check up on the heating and insulation system

If you live in a cold climate, the heating system will be running constantly during winter. This calls for proper cleaning, insulation and ventilation of your HVAC system, crawlspace and attic. Clean or change out your HVAC filter in preparation for heavy usage, and make sure the attic area is properly insulated. Insulation in the crawlspace and ceilings will keep the heat inside the living space and prevent warm air from escaping. Sealing the gaps around windows, plumbing, vents and lighting fixtures will also maximize energy efficiency in your property.

Prevent frozen pipes

Avoid frozen pipes this season – and all the collateral damage they can cause – by adding extra insulation to exposed pipes in the crawlspace, basement or attic. Damage due to frozen pipes is common but completely preventable. Taking the precaution to seal, insulate and wrap pipes will prevent cold air from getting into the pipes. Exterior faucets should be drained and shut off for the season. Educate your tenants about what they need to do when the temperature drops, such as leaving a trickle of water on overnight, leaving cabinet doors open, and keeping the thermostat at a consistent temperature.

Winter-proof the exterior

Your landscaping may have gone dormant, but you're not done with yard work yet. Prevent damages from icy conditions by trimming trees and shrubs so they don't brush up against the walls and windows. Regularly inspect your roof for the formation of ice dams, which can damage your roof and cause water leakage. Close any crawlspace vents in the foundation, and seal any cracks or small openings so small critters can't burrow in. If your residents are taking care of snow removal on your property, move snow shovels and blowers to an accessible spot.

Prepare for the worst

A bad storm can result in a blackout or being snowed in. Remind your tenants to be prepared for the worst by keeping bottled water, non-perishable food, flashlights and emergency phone numbers on hand.

Energy Saving Tips and Video

Tis the season to expect some increases in winter electric bills. Here are a few tips and suggestions from Santee Cooper to save energy and money.

Save money and stay warm for winter –

• Set thermostat at 68 degrees for winter, suggested by Santee Cooper

• Wear more clothes and sleep under an extra blanket

• Reverse the blades on ceiling fans to push warm air down

• Open curtains and blinds when the sun is shining to naturally heat rooms

• Close them back at night to keep the heat inside

• Change HVAC filters monthly to assure unit operates efficiently

• Install weather stripping around windows and add door sweeps on exterior doors to close gaps and eliminate drafts

• Close damper when not using the fireplace

• Upgrade attic insulation from three to 12 inches to save 20 percent on heating costs

• Seal off unused rooms and close vents to more easily heat the most lived in areas
