DeBordieu Club - Private....and will STAY that way.
The quote I loved the most in yesterday's Sun News article was this one:
"That leaves DeBordieu Club in Georgetown as the only club on the Strand that can be considered a truly exclusive single-entity private club." ~ The Sun News, Jan. 31, 2011

The Members set it up right in the beginning.
They've stayed true to their vision.
And they have the staying power not to waver.

Congratualtions DeBordieu Club!

TRUE VALUE….and I’m not talking about the hardware store!
With so many short sales and foreclosures on the market today, many times, true value is hidden. To some, like beauty, value may just be in the eye of the beholder. A character in a play by Oscar Wilde said that “a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing” is a cynic. In today’s real estate market, particularly at DeBordieu, just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, I would call that man, who looks at nothing but numbers, unwise.
On the surface, there are some incredible “deals” out there. Some show up as short sales or foreclosures. Others are hidden, by their asking price.
Yes, of course buyers should look at distressed properties today. But that is not all to consider. Value exists on many different levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual.
Physical value is obvious and can be measured in most cases by a property’s price/sq.ft., and the features it offers such as the number of bedrooms, the age, and the exterior finish.
An emotional quotient is added to the value equation when considering the property’s view from the back porch, the distance to the beach, and the picture that is painted in the buyer’s mind when envisioning the family gathered around the dining room table for a holiday celebration.
Value is expanded exponentially when the spiritual aspect is considered. Sometimes referred to as a “gut feeling,” most buyers know when they are in THE home, or walking on THE lot. It “speaks” to them.
For DeBordieu Buyers, it’s usually a combination of all three value components when considering DeBordieu as a community. Aspects of DeBordieu that contribute to its physical value include the secluded beach, the private golf course, the miles of creeks that wind through North Inlet, and the 24-hour manned security gate. The emotional elements come from knowing that, as a DeBordieu resident, your beach will seldom be crowded, tee times are not hard to come by, you can wet your hook any time of the year, and your property, family, and peace of mind are safe.
When it comes to value, DeBordieu, as a community, is like none-other. Come see for yourself! It’s the best way to really get a feel for this incredibly beautiful place. Call or email me and I will be delighted to assist you with making arrangements to spend a night or two.
