The Eagle has Landed!
The Eagle has landed at DeBordieu in more ways than one! And no, I’m not talking about covert spy secrets.
First, we’ve been watching this majestic bird fly around for quite some time but yesterday, Grady Honeycutt from our rental office snapped a picture of Mr. Eagle when he actually landed on the causeway between DeBordieu’s mainland and the island. Gorgeous, eh?
Second, after MUCH debate, the SC Senate reached a compromise on the Point of Sale real estate tax. Click this link to read about it. Basically, on commercial property and second homes taxable values will stay the same this year, and next year, instead of being taxed at the full sales price, they will be taxed on just 80% of their sales price. Many thanks to those who rallied behind this compromise. It’s a great first step, and will mean a lot to folks interested in purchasing second homes in DeBordieu.
To get a bird’s eye view of some of those second home properties, similar to what Mr. Eagle sees flying around, visit the website at
There’s no place like home. There’s no place like DeBordieu.
