Alt 6 - What is it and why should you care?

Mon, Oct 3rd 2022 2:32 pm by Pattie Stratton Blog

Market Stats Third Quarter 2022

Mon, Oct 3rd 2022 7:40 am by Pattie Stratton Blog

Our market continues to hold value and remains desirable as a second or primary home location. We are moving out of an intense seller's market, interest rates have increased over the past several weeks, resulting in a slowdown in sales in the  area, especially in the $400,000 to $1.5 million dollar range. Properties listed in this range have also seen the largest percentage of price adjustments as they are lingering on the market.

That being said, the Lowcountry is still a very desirable location and we continue to see keen interest from buyers particularly for homes in certain neighborhoods. When they are nicely done and well priced these properties continue to go under contract q...

Strong American Dollar Means Good Time to Buy in Europe

Fri, Sep 2nd 2022 11:32 am by Pattie Stratton Blog

According to a recent WSJ article “favorable exchange rates and steady property prices have led to big interest in markets like London, Paris, and Tuscany". 

Maison’s international properties specialist Elizabeth Dixon wholeheartedly agrees. 

  “I have clients interested in buying abroad who have been thinking about doing it for years, but are jumping on it now.

They see it as the opportunity of a lifetime.”

The dollar is stronger in Europe than it has been in years, and while property prices in the states are soaring, prices in most

European cities are holding steady or realizing only minor increases. 

Elizabeth has clients who previously were looking at studios in Paris, a...
