Top 4 Reasons to Live in Hilton Head Island, SC

  • Live in a true community! The island's many gated communities -- such as community 1 and community 2 -- take up over two-thirds of the area. Finding a rental home or rent to own deal in one of these communities may take a bit of work, but it can be rewarding when you finally land your perfect place.
  • Get cultured around town! Even in a town as small as Hilton Head, there is seemingly no limit to the cultural offerings. Residents enjoy listening to the Hilton Head Symphony orchestra and the Hilton Head Choral Society, and watching Broadway-caliber plays at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina. If the outdoors is more your thing, a chili cook-off, a celebrity golf tournament and a barbecue fest may be more to your liking.
  • A rising housing market! Hilton Head Island's home values have risen 3.6% in the last year. The median house price is $356,200. What's more, the median price per square foot on the island is higher than the surrounding metro area ($238 compared to $177). You'll earn instant home equity here. Even better, you'll live in a place that is surrounded by water! You can jog on the town's many trails like the 10-mile Island History Pathway that meanders by historic sites such as Union Cemetery and the Tabby Ruins.
  • Southern meals! Just 20 miles north of Savannah, GA, and 95 miles south of Charleston, SC, Hilton Head Island is perfectly situated within what's known as the lowcountry. Living in the South, you'll hear "ma'am" and "thank you" plenty. You'll also be in a place where shrimp and grits is on practically every menu, and tea is ordered sweet and cold. Try the fried green tomatoes at A Lowcountry Backyard or chow down on fresh seafood at Chow Daddy's.
