We all have heard the expressions, "It takes money to make money" and "Money talks." With all the bad news about real estate, we fail to listen to what "money" is saying. Money, and the buyers who represent money, in our market are talking, but who is listening?In the first 10 months in Sea Pines Plantations, 14 oceanfront homes have been placed under contract and 12 have closed.What is so significant is that from Oct. 1, 2004 through the end of 2006, only 13 closed. So in a short 10 months, Sea Pines oceanfront sales have surpassed 27 months of sales.For the past two years, we've read about doom and gloom, yet, the money people are buying. Maybe they believe in "Buy Now" and they are sending us a big message.The question is, Who will get it and take advantage of a perfect time to buy?
