Bluffton, SC (January 3, 2011) – Market Graphics Research, a new home market research company located in Franklin, TN, recently released its annual report of “Top Performing Communities” which named Hampton Lake as fourth among 1,263 communities along the coast of South Carolina and Georgia from Beaufort to the Florida line.
The report is based on the number of newly-occupied homes, excluding sales, within a 12-month period. Hampton Lake was ranked fourth with 39 newly occupied homes. Rice Creek in Port Wentworth, GA ranked first with Lakeshore Community (also in Port Wentworth) and locally-known Sun City Hilton Head following in second and third.
“I believe that having two of the top four ranking communities here in our immediate area is a great testimony to the viability of the thriving real estate market in Bluffton/Hilton Head,” said Gerrit Albert, president of Hampton Lake. “Hampton Lake had five sales in the first week of December alone and our membership numbers stand at over __ and growing. We’ve been extremely pleased with the success of this community in the current economy.”
The annual report ranked Hampton Lake second throughout Beaufort County for building starts; having begun 34 single-family residences in the one-year time period. The 900-acre lakeside community has also been named “Best Community in America” and “Best Community Facility in America” by the National Association of Homebuilders.
