Hilton Head Real Estate-Tremendous Visitor Viewing

The Town of Hilton Head Island is truly getting huge recognition from the national media. Visitors are viewing Hilton Head Real Estate. Both 2014 and YTD 2015 have seen a very healthy number of visitors. Recently the Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce published some information on how well the Island is doing with tourists and visitors. The number of people spending their money has a direct effect on Hilton Head Island’s economy. Beginning with the 2014 stats, Hilton Head Island saw over 2.6 million visitors and as reported by the Chamber of Commerce, occupancy was 2.5% higher than in 2013. Furthermore, in the last 5 years, Hilton Head Island hotel occupancy is up 17%. This makes a tremendous difference for Hilton Head’s hotel business.

Conventions in Hilton Head Real Estate Bring People Who Never Want To Leave

 The other day after speaking with an executive at the Westin on Hilton Head Island, she said an important part of the increase at the Westin was due to a big increase in their convention business. This is why hotels like this have made the investment into higher quality. For many years, companies like IBM booked annual sales meetings on Hilton Head Real Estate annually and for good reason. Now, it is becoming a more common practice among many companies. As a result, there are a lot of folks living here who attended those meetings and once they saw Hilton Head Island, they elected to own property here!  This simply confirms our motto at Charles Sampson Real Estate Group: “Come for a Visit and Stay for a Lifetime!”

 This is what happens when people come to the conventions and see how truly beautiful Hilton Head Island is. They often just want to live and enjoy the natural beauty and peace that Hilton head has to offer. Hilton Head real estate is an incredibly valuable asset.

Corporations and National Media Recognize Hilton Head Promoting Its Growth

 The Chamber of Commerce’s update noted that the Savannah-Hilton Head Airport reported a 17% increase in 2014 as compared to 2013. We are certain Jet Blue played a role in the significant increase., USA Today, the Travel Channel, Conde Nast Traveler, Money Magazine, and Garden and Gun have all had stories that featured Hilton Head Island and the Lowcountry in 2015.

 The Chamber continued to report that this effort equaled approximately $12,000,000 in advertising value. This type of good PR along with the recent Gold Level Bike Friendly Community status Hilton Head Island was awarded will entice people to Hilton Head for a visit. The Chamber further noted that they have 72,000 Facebook friends and had 2 Million plus visits to in 2014!
