Why I May Never be Successful in Real Estate

I just got off the phone with a very nice DeBordieu property owner from North Carolina who wanted to put his lot on the market. In true "Troi Kaz fashion," I talked him right out of selling it, and into considering building and moving here instead.
(If I keep talking people out of selling their property, I may never be successful in this business.) 

Anyway, he said one of the reasons he did not want to build was the conflict it would cause between him and his wife....(to which I had to laugh, remembering what my marriage counselor friend said once: "couples building houses: one of my biggest sources of job security!" HA!)

Quite a few Pawleys Island area buyers have commented to me that they would love to build a brand new home in a private, oceanfront, gated, golf community like DeBordieu, but because of the perception that it’s a hassle to get a loan, and go through the process of building a house, they are hesitant. Well………hesitate no more!
The Wicklow

Wicklow Main Floor
The DeBordieu Collection by Catalyst Architects, LLC is off and running and providing a hassle-free building process by combining the experience of long time DeBordieu custom home builders and the award winning talents of Wayne Rogers of Catalyst Architects. Wayne has been involved in the building or remodeling of over 175 homes in DeBordieu! Now, buyers have the opportunity to select a unique Catalyst home design already priced by qualified, reputable, DeBordieu building contractors, and place the home in the DeBordieu location of your choice.

Because the Catalyst Collection Homes will be priced in the range of $525,000 to $595,000, and DeBordieu Homesites currently range from $130,000 and up, you could easily be in your new DeBordieu home for as little as $665,000. We’re delighted to be able to provide this segment of our market the product they want, at an attractive price.

Featured on this page is my personal favorite, the Wicklow.

Wicklow Upper Floor
The nice thing about the Catalyst program is that most of the decisions have already been made for the buyer. Yet, there is still the opportunity to choose the fixtures and finishes that will make the home even more unique. This economical package includes architectural fees, surveying costs, ARB submission fees and a landscaping allowance!

 Another reason buying a lot and building a home has gotten complicated is that many lending institutions have quit loaning money to speculative builders, and many others have quit providing financing to consumers purchasing lots. However, DeBordieu has recently been included in First Federal's Lot Loan program, which we are very excited about! (contact me for details!)

What is also really perfect about the timing of this program is that there has never been the kind of selection and value available in homesites in DeBordieu. EVER. Whether the buyers desire is to be next to a nature preserve, overlooking a serene pond, on the golf course, or within walking distance to the beach, I can provide a selection of available lots for sale in the desired price range.

We are delighted to be working with Catalyst to provide our clients with the opportunity to build a new DeBordieu home with ease...AND to save their marriages! There has never been a better time to build a new home at DeBordieu!

DeBordieu Colony is an oceanfront community located just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina featuring private golf and tennis, saltwater creek access to the ocean, a manned security gate, and luxury homes and villas surrounded by thousands of acres of wildlife and nature preserves.
