SAVANNAH, Ga., April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Many home buyers today simply look at a few ads in an area they are interested and call a realtor to show them the property. But the majority of people who look at ads don't buy these houses. And by limiting themselves geographically, they miss neighborhoods which may have a lot more hidden benefits than the places they know.
Wilmington Island, about 6 miles east of the City of Savannah, Georgia, is just such a hidden gem. Buyers tend to know more about Pooler and Richmond Hill. Few know about Wilmington Island, and even fewer know the hidden benefits of purchasing a home there. For those who have found the secrets of this bucolic island, they know that house prices can be lower than other areas of the city, the public and private schools are amongst the best in Chatham County, and crime is extremely low. On top of that, Wilmington first began as a resort community and it retains that relaxing coastal vacation feel and offers plenty of shopping, restaurants and amenities within about a mile of most homes. There are a wide range of homes with a style and size for everyone. It's the perfect place for a full time home or a vacation home.
"As a property manager and real estate investor in two countries, I looked at many coastal communities in South Carolina and Georgia and saw the advantages of Wilmington Island immediately," says Tanya Bailey, President and Project Manager of J.T. Martaneli Inc. "Life is a blend of island relaxation but with all the conveniences close by. The schools were a major factor in our decision to move our family to Wilmington Island and being able to afford a home with ocean, river and marsh views at a fraction of the cost that other east coast communities were charging did not hurt, either."
Locals are minutes to the beach and Savannah's historic downtown for jobs or nightlife, making it a convenient choice. That is a lot of bang for a buyer's buck and makes Wilmington Island one of the most coveted neighborhoods in Greater Savannah. The secret is coming out and home prices could skyrocket on the island once buyers begin to realize the benefits. Homes on streets such as Brevard Point Road are a constant favorite to Sunday drivers out for a cruise as they dream of buying one of the big low country homes there.
Online search engines such as www.zillow.com can help shoppers uncover a lot of the secrets of the 31410 zipcode. Bailey's own four bedroom home is currently for sale at 113 Brevard Point Road on Wilmington Island and she hopes it will find a new family soon.
Happy house hunting!
