The Landings - Savannah

Why The Landings is Called Savannah’s ‘Best Community’

When you ask a local resident about Savannah’s finest and most coveted neighborhoods, The Landings will almost always come up. In fact, Real Estate Scorecard’s annual Bliss Awards recently named The Landings as “The Best Georgia Community of the Year.” What makes this 4500-acre community on Skidaway Island so special? Why is The Landings repeatedly referred to as Savannah’s best community? There’s quite a few reasons, which we’ve outlined below.

The scenery

For most people, coastal living begins and ends with the scenery. Strategically located, The Landings has anything and everything you could ask for in that department. Pristine beaches, serene marshlands, shady trees covered in Spanish moss, gorgeous waterways—there’s barely a home site in this community that doesn’t have a terrific view. This feature alone makes The Landings a wonderful place to come home to — or indeed, never to leave.

The amenities

The LandingsFor decades, The Landings community has been known for its world-class resort amenities. All residents enjoy access to a vast network of parks, 30 miles of jogging/walking trails, a 2-acre community farm, two deep water marinas and a calendar full of neighborhood group activities. For a true resort experience, residents also have the opportunity to become members of The Landings Club, a luxury golf club featuring championship courses, fine clubhouse dining, three tennis centers with 32 courts, and a wealth of year-round wellness and fitness opportunities.

Convenience to Savannah

This community is quiet and serene, but not isolated. Historic Savannah is only about a 10-minute drive from here, giving residents access to all the great shopping, dining and nightlife of this vibrant downtown. Most points of Savannah proper are less than a half-hour’s drive, making The Landings a perfect option for commuters.

Homes for many budgets

Despite its world-class list of amenities, The Landings is not exclusive to the wealthy, making it truly unique. In fact, available homes in this subdivision span a large range of price points, making it accessible to individuals and families of many budgets. While there is certainly no shortage of homes in the $1 million-plus range, The Landings has plenty of very comfortable homes starting as low as the $200s upward. Island living is more affordable than you think!

Between its gorgeous views, amazing features and convenience to the city, it’s little wonder that The Landings is called Savannah’s best community. If you’d like to look at available homes here, we’d love to help! Give Luffburrow Realty a call today at (912) 355-6562.


Dutch Island

Dutch Island Offers Natural Coastal Real Estate in Savannah

Located along the Intercoastal Waterway about 20 minutes from Savannah’s historic downtown, the community of Dutch Island offers natural coastal real estate in Savannah with a beauty and charm all its own. Once a plantation, then the site of a failed airplane factory, Dutch Island today is a residential haven for those who prefer the quiet, serene coastal lifestyle.

About Dutch Island

Dutch IslandDutch Island’s history goes back to colonial times, when King George III granted Peter Radick a 30-acre plot to build his plantation. For many decades, only a handful of such plantations existed on this 500-square-acre island until the early 1900s, at the dawn of flight, when an ambitious entrepreneur built an airplane factory here with dreams of building a cross-Atlantic aircraft. Several failures and a lawsuit later, the factory burned to the ground, and Dutch Island fell into obscurity until the late 1960s, when a company first envisioned the island as a place for upscale residential coastal development preserving the natural ecology. Today, Dutch Island is just that: A quiet gated community of 480 homes set on large lots, where residents enjoy a relaxed pace of living in harmony with their natural surroundings.

Amenities on Dutch Island

While quiet and serene, Dutch Island is by no means isolated or lonely. A tight-knit community of more than 1,100 people live in this neighborhood, enjoying a number of amenities such as a swimming pool, playgrounds, sports courts, a pier/boat dock and a number of gorgeous lagoons and ponds throughout the property. With Savannah proper located just a 20-minute drive inland, Dutch Island is also a perfect destination for commuters.

Homes on Dutch Island

Homes in this community are built in a variety of traditional styles — generally 3-5 bedrooms on large lots that preserve much of the natural beauty. Despite the location, amenities and overall desirability of this exclusive community, home prices in Dutch Island are more affordable than comparable coastal locations. The median home values here are approximately $480,000, with home values appreciating approximately 5 percent over the past year. Listings range generally from the high $300s to the high $500, with some estate homes exceeding $1 million.

When Is the Best Time To Buy Real Estate in Savannah, Georgia?

If you’re looking to purchase property, you naturally want to get the best deal you can get—so when is the best time to buy real estate in Savannah, Georgia?

The answer is, it depends.

There’s an ongoing assumption among property buyers (and often propagated by real estate professionals) that the best time to buy is during the spring and early summer months, as the winter weather starts improving. The truth is, this is sort of a self-fulfilling myth. Because sellers believe this, they tend to list their properties for sale in the spring, which makes inventory go up. And because buyers believe it, spring is when they start looking.

But is this really the best time to buy real estate in Savannah?months

In reality, this springtime buying-selling boon has both positive and negative effects. On one hand, you’ll have more home listings to choose from in the spring and summer, and this puts more pressure on the sellers to compete price-wise. On the other hand, since more buyers are on the hunt, this makes the savvy seller realize that if you aren’t willing to pay the asking price, the next person might be. So these dynamics tend to cancel each other out, and the upshot is that spring is probably no better or worse a time of year to look for a home.

That being said, there may be specific times or seasons when it’s in your best interests to start looking for real estate—and that’s why we said, “It depends.” It depends on your goals and objectives. Here’s what we mean by that.

If Your Goal Is To Have More Selection…

If you’re looking primarily for your “dream home,” you probably want lots of homes from which to choose. If this is the case, then by all means you should house-hunt during the times of greatest inventory—and that will almost always be during the spring and summer. This gives you the best odds of finding a property that will tick all the boxes on your list, and depending on the market itself, you probably won’t pay that much more for it than at any other time of year.

If Your Goal Is To Get The Best Deal…

If you’re primarily shopping for price, you might be surprised at the best time to buy: December.

That’s right—do your house hunting in the dead of winter. Because sales tend to be lowest that time of year, sellers tend to be much more motivated to make a deal. On average, you’ll pay less per square foot in December than during any other month of the year—and the closer to Christmas, the better.

All presumptions aside, weather does play a role in when buyers are looking for homes, as well as when sellers are putting their homes on the market. But here in Savannah, where the weather is moderate most times of the year, it’s less of a factor than in other parts of the country. You’ll have more selection in the spring, and you’ll get slightly better prices in the winter, but the truth is, there’s never a “bad” time to buy real estate in Savannah, GA. If you need help narrowing the search, get in touch with one of our experienced real estate agents today!

How to Find a Knowledgeable Savannah Real Estate Agent

Choosing a Real Estate Agent

When you’re looking to buy or sell a home, particularly if you are relocating or don’t know the area well, it’s important to hire a real estate agent with knowledge and experience. He or she should be knowledgeable, not just about the various neighborhoods of the city, but also about market trends, negotiation techniques, proper pricing and staging and more.

If you’re trying to find a knowledgeable Savannah real estate agent, here are some tips to help with your search.

Ask friends

Word-of-mouth is still the best form of advertising, so if you know anyone in Savannah who has bought or sold a home in the area within the past few years, ask about their experiences. What agent or agents would your friend recommend, and why? Many times this simple question will lead you to the right agent; other times, it might just be a good starting point for the search.

Look up their bio

Most real estate agents now have their bios posted online, usually through their own website or through their agency. A simple Google search for Savannah real estate agents should bring up a few different agencies and agents. This is a great chance to find an agent that matches your personality, values, or even your own interests. Learn more about agents at Lufburrow Realty.

Consider an established, boutique brokerage

There are so many real estate companies out there — it can be challenging to choose! From large-scale “big box” franchises to smaller, boutique establishments, the options are limitless. If you’re looking for an especially attentive and personable buying or selling experience, there’s great value in choosing agents partnered with a boutique operation.

Check with the licensing board

If you are vetting a specific agent, the Georgia Real Estate Commission has a searchable database that will tell you whether the agent’s license is current and whether any disciplinary action has been taken. (Clicking on the record itself will also tell you when the agent first became licensed, so if you don’t know how long she has been in business, this is a great way to find out.)

Check for specialty credentials

If the agent displays a seemingly random set of letters after his name (e.g., CRS, SRES), it means he’s taken some extra classes to be certified in a specialty. Look up the initials to see what they stand for, as this specialty might prove useful to you. For example, if you are selling a home, you might want to hire a Seller Representative Specialist (SRS); likewise, you might want an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) if you’re buying. If you’re looking buying acreage, an Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) might offer key insights. You get the idea.

At Lufburrow Realty, our Savannah roots run deep, having been in business here for nearly a century. To talk to a knowledgeable Savannah real estate agent, call us at (912) 355-6562 or view our featured listings.


4 Tips for Investing in Savannah Vacation Rental Property

Between our charming historic districts, fantastic eateries and drinking establishments, beach access and recreation opportunities, it comes as little surprise that tourism accounts for a huge chunk of Savannah’s economy.

Graves in Camellia Terrace, Savannah, Georgia

In fact, Savannah’s annual tourism study estimates that tourists spent $2.67 billion here in 2015, an increase of $67 million over the prior year. Furthermore, tourists aren’t just spending more money in Savannah; they’re spending more time here, meaning they need places to stay. If you have an interest in investing in Savannah vacation rental property, you couldn’t find a better time than the present to get in on the action.

That said, there are plenty of things to consider when purchasing investment properties, which is why we’ve compiled the following — tips to help you plot a course toward investing in Savannah vacation rentals.

1. Decide on a neighborhood or point of attraction

We all wish we could be all things to all people, but the truth is people visit Savannah for a variety of reasons. Some come to enjoy the historic downtown area, take in the local attractions or just enjoy the relaxed vibe and the “open container” policy. Others come to enjoy the coastal resorts and the gorgeous beaches. Still others come to enjoy recreational activities like boating, fishing, watersports or one of the many championship golf courses in the area.

Taking this dynamic into account, your best bet is to decide which group of tourists you’d most like to cater to, and look for available properties in a neighborhood or locale that best meets those visitors’ needs. For example, if you want to cater to beachgoers and boating enthusiasts, you might look for properties on Tybee Island, or seek out waterfront properties near the marshlands or resort areas. If historic Savannah is more your thing, look for properties near downtown. If you plan to use the place yourself, you might choose a location based on your own interests, as you’re more likely to be passionate about promoting your rental property in that case.

2. Research costs versus income potential

Property values in Savannah are generally reasonable compared to other high tourist areas, but that doesn’t mean profitability is guaranteed. Try researching the comparable costs of property in your target area, and compare that with the going rates for vacation rentals, considering expenses like property management and upkeep, insurance, taxes, etc. When you run the numbers, can you see a consistent viable profit? What if you invest in improvements? Can you get a cheaper “fixer-upper” property and increase its market value by restoring it?

3. Get financing in order

Once you’ve honed in on a general location and determined what price points you need to make a smart investment, it’s time to look at financing and determine how much “home” you can reasonably afford to buy. We recommend getting your proof of income in order before visiting a mortgage broker, as well as checking your credit to make sure there are no surprises lurking. If you have concerns about qualifying for financing on your own — or indeed about the responsibility of such an investment — you might consider going in with a group of investors. You get a smaller piece of the pie, so to speak, but you also gain the advantage of group buying power.

4. Hire a qualified real estate agent

Investing in Savannah vacation rental property is much different than buying a home just for yourself or your family. There are a lot of additional factors to consider, including location, market values, proximity to amenities and high-traffic areas, features that will attract renters, and so on and so forth. For this reason, it’s very important to hire a real estate agent with plenty of localized experience in Savannah and the vicinity, particularly when it comes to high tourism areas. Look for an agent who has either grown up in Savannah or worked in the Savannah market for many years — someone who can guide you not just to the right neighborhood, but to the perfect investment property.

Lufburrow Reality has been in the Savannah real estate market since 1923, and our business has remained in the family for three generations. Few people know the Savannah area like we do, and if you’re looking to invest in Savannah vacation rental property, we have the expertise to help you find just what you’re looking for.
