The owner prefers to sell all furnishings in the house on a separate bill of sale or negotiated w/ the sale, so it is ready to take over immediately as a cash-generating property, or to move in as a resident. This property is under a rental contract & therefore the sale must be in accordance with the SC Vacation Rental Property Act. Rental Income: 2015: $75,000. Rental Income 2014: $79,000. Income 2013: $67,597.63. Rental Income 2016 (owner used it more in 2016): $70,000.

Who We Are:


We started New Home Buyers Brokers and Realty Pros in 1998, after realizing that there was a definite difference in what GREAT Realtors should be offering to their clients, and what we were finding really happens during a typical real estate transaction. Excellent Realtors are: Committed to meeting their client’s needs, first and foremost; Work full time in the profession, and don't do this because they need part time income or just want to "stay busy"; Hold themselves the the absolute highest standard in our industry, and are ethical, fair and honest to all parties; Know how to negotiate deals for the best interest of their clients; Have the experience, knowledge and know-how to work with other Agents, Builders and their management teams and other service providers like contractors, to solve problems that may arise during a transaction; And they have the fortitude to stay in touch, follow up, and make sure that everything flows as smoothly as possible to get the transaction to a successful closing.

We have been selling Real Estate in the Carolinas since 1992, and have the experience, compassion, and knowledge to make our client's "home buying, home building, or home selling" dreams come true.
