The SBH Newsletter – April 2020

We wish you all good health and safety!

As I start this newsletter, I want to send out a prayer that all of you along with family and friends are safe and well! Although we are physically isolated we certainly can surround ourselves with family and friends virtually. Zoom has been a great platform for my family to stay in touch with our loved ones, there are many other platforms out there, the important thing is to reach out and stay engaged! We are in the process of visiting our local business’ to let you know how they are operating now and their plans for the summer. Look for updated information on our websites and facebook pages: Website | Facebook

On the real estate front, the good news is that most of the homes that were under contract when we went under the “stay at home” order have closed. As anticipated physical property tours have dropped significantly. We are seeing good traffic on our websites as people check out real estate from home. I do believe, once the order is lifted and we begin to get our lives back on track that activity will pick up. After all, Sandbridge is a beautiful place to be with great times ahead!

Activity for past 30 days is as follows:

Single Family Homes7 Sold and 6 Pending
Condos3 Sold and 2 Pending
Market MetricsJanuary 1, 2020 – April 22, 2020 Year-to-Date

During this time we are practicing CDC guidelines. See link for details on how we are currently working with our clients.

Our sewer system project is complete and the sand nourishment project is well on it way. See link for the latest! We are all hoping that things will be somewhat back to normal by summer and we can all enjoy some time on the beach. I wish you all health and safety as we experience this unfamiliar and difficult journey together. I heard something the other day that made sense to me. “We are all in the storm together but we are on different boats” (author unknown). I took the following from the North Sails website about sailing in a storm, it seems to apply here as well.

Although everyone will remember it differently years later, a long, wet, cold sail through a storm can be miserable. As skipper, you need to make the best of it: watch over your crew, offer relief or help to those who need it, and speak a few words of encouragement to all. “This is miserable, but it will end.”

All the best, Aloha,
