Summer is here and it has been a hot one. Lots of violent afternoon thunderstorms which are quite exciting to watch if you are safe inside! Many part-time residents have decided to remain in BallenIsles instead of traveling. The Club has provided the maximum of amenities possible within strict COVID-19 precautions. If you must live in a bubble.... it's a pretty nice one!

We escaped a Category 1 hurricane with Isaias. Thankfully it proved to be just a practice run for the coming season. We include an article on just how to prepare an inventory plus a link to lots more preparedness info.

And what a surprise! BallenIsles sales for June and July numbered 18. We are spending much more time in our homes so it is natural that many new and current residents are choosing to make a move to better suit their needs.
Stay safe. We can do this!

BallenIsles Sales - June/July

WOW! 18 Sales in 2 months. June and July proved extremely productive. We are finding that Buyers and Sellers are committed to making a transaction happen. If you are willing to don a mask and gloves or allow strangers into your property, you are serious. None of a Seller's "If I get my price" or a Buyer's "If I find the perfect home" tentativeness.

Many of these sales were in the works before the number of COVID-19 cases began to rise exponentially and our hurricane season began in earnest. It will remain to be seen how the numbers play out in the coming months. Stay tuned.....
