Location, Location, Location.
“If you’ve heard it once……”
But what does it really mean? Whether you’re talking about Pawleys Island, South Carolina or DeBordieu, "location, location, location" basically means that similar homes can increase or decrease in value depending on their location. It’s true in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, and it’s true in DeBordieu.
It’s always been the number one rule of real estate, and guess what? It still is, even in this crazy real estate market we’ve got going on right now.
You can change a lot of things about a home. You can update the kitchen. You can add on a screened porch. You can even change the floorplan (ask me why my nickname is “The Sledgehammer.”) But the thing you can’t change about a home is its location.
There’s a great story about how the McMahons ended up with one of the most perfect locations in DeBordieu to build their home. They actually bought the lot sight-unseen….in fact, their best friend picked it out for them because it offered a spectacular lake/golf view, was in the “x-zone” so they could build a “mother-in-law suite” on the ground floor with no steps, and it was just a short golf cart ride to DeBordieu’s beautiful beach. (Click on the McMahon link for more details about this home, now offered for sale.)

DeBordieu’s location is also very important, right between Pawleys Island and Georgetown, so it’s convenient to the great shopping and dining venues in both areas. On a larger scale, DeBordieu is about an hour and 30 minutes north of Historic Charleston, and everything that amazing city has to offer, and about 40 minutes south of the Myrtle Beach Airport.
Other nice features about DeBordieu’s location include access to North Inlet for boating and fishing, being surrounded by acres and acres of nature conservation easements, and being in a top-rated school district.
If location is important to you….perhaps you should see the McMahon Home at DeBordieu.
There has never been a better time to purchase property at DeBordieu.
