Thank you for your response.
I have been focused mainly on kiawah island. I hate to admit it, but I am very confused now and I am not sure what really is a sales pitch and what is the truth anymore. I think that 39 months of inventory contradicts what I was told by the real estate company there.
My dad always told that numbers don't lie, so I really need to step back. They did give us some brochures that said business is booming and they are selling more than last year, so that appears to be good news. But the number of homes being for sale doesn't add up based on what we were led to beleive.
I guess that I have to sift through all of the hype myself and figure out what is going on. Where I live it seems to be much easier to get a straight answer -- gotta love the midwest!
Maybe I just need to buy some higher hip waders for the east coast!!!
