Good Morning! Motivated sellers in many golf communities prove that it is still a buyers’ market for second homes, vacation homes and retirement residences. See below for homes for sale in Sea Pines, SC; Teton Springs, UT, and Indian River Colony Club, FL which all feature prices that continue to be pressured by the current market.
Also, there are many still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Sandy, and now a new nor’easter. Check out this list of organizations, links and telephones numbers that tell how you can help.–David Lott, Founder/Publisher.
