10 Must-Have Features for a Hilton Head Vacation Rental Property

A majority of buyers I am in front of are investment buyers.

What does that mean?

These buyers are looking to own a home or villa here on Hilton Head Island that they themselves can use and enjoy.  Plus, they take advantage of the placing that property on the vacation rental market to generate income when they are not using the property.

In essence, they are making money that can go a long way toward covering the annual carrying costs of that property.  Why not?  In other words, they turn that vacation home into a preforming asset!
