What Your Recent Reassessment Notice Means

Beaufort County homeowners should have already received their reassessment in the mail. Let’s explore what this reassessment notice means and what you can do if you disagree with it.

Like many others I’ve been hearing from, you may have recently received a Beaufort County reassessment notice and have questions about it. So today, I’ll go through what this is and answer some of your questions and concerns.
Beaufort County assesses properties in a few different ways. The most common way is an assessable transfer of interest, also simply known as the sale or retitling of a property. Typically when a home is purchased, that purchase price is used to value the property, which is adjusted in the subsequent year of ownership.
A lesser known way of assessment is through a county-wide assessment, which is the notice you’ve recently received. These updated values are as of Dec. 31, 2017, and you’ve most likely seen your value increase quit ...

Take a Dip in the Boating Lifestyle at the Freedom Boat Club

Enjoy the pleasures of boating without the maintenance and hassle by joining the Freedom Boat Club here in Hilton Head. Steve Sherman is here to tell you how.

I’m proud to do my first business spotlight today, and what better way to begin than with the Freedom Boat Club?

I’m here with Steve Sherman, the head of sales and new memberships. Steve is actually the one who signed me up with the Club six years ago, so I wanted to give him an opportunity to tell us about the Freedom Boat Club and what its members are all about.

The Boat Club is one of the coolest ways to get out on the water and enjoy the lifestyle in Hilton Head without all the hassles of owning a boat. They have 32 boats in the fleet between their Hilton Head and Beaufort locations.

The Freedom Boat Club rotates its entire fleet at a minimum of every three years, though they’re trying to reduce that down to every two-and-a-half years. This way, its members will always be on new or like ...
