Short sales and foreclosures have been few and far between as a result of the strong Charleston real estate market. However, this month there are 3 interesting opportunities in the Avian neighborhood of Belle Hall, Isle Of Palms, and Kiawah Island. Liens on these home range from $1,300,000 to about $3,600,000. Purchasing a home in the foreclosure auction isn't for everyone, but if you work with an experienced realtor and cover all of the proper steps it can be lucrative. For more information on these opportunities call Drew Salazar at 480-365-9585.
Fig Restaurant Executive Chef Jason Stanhope won Best Chef In The South title during the James Beard Award Gala in Chicago this month.
