How's summer on Hilton Head treating you Dave? We're looking to visit the island in early Fall, but haven't worked out the details yet. I hope you're doing well.

Cheers,
Will

Hi Will, Beautiful picture! Still pinching myself. Retired and living on HHI...hard lifestyle to beat! I play a lot of golf and ride my bike. We joined the Church of the Cross in Bluffton (on the May River) and I volunteer at the food bank there. One of my golf buddies and I deliver Meals on Wheels on Wednesdays every other month. There's a lot of "haves" around here but also a lot of "have nots". Staying busy and loving "Hilton Head Life".--Dave

Hello,

My name is Brian and I recently came back from my first vacation spent in Hilton Head Island. Needless to say I was taken away and after being there for just my first few days I decided I wanted to move there with my girlfriend. Unfortunately I'm 23, she's 19 and we have little to money saved up for a move. But we're staying hopeful, keeping the goal in mind and doing all the research we can on what we need to prepare for. That's why I'm posting here!

I've looked for jobs, apartments, and the cost of living. I've done everything but talk to people who have made the move there. Right now we're saving as we build our careers. I have an Associate's degree from DeVry University in Network Systems Administration, but much like my girlfriend my passion is in fitness. Before we move we both hope to be certified personal trainers and she should have at least an associates in Exercise Science, working towards her Bachelor's. I saw the 4-5 gyms on the island when I was there so we're hoping to get jobs through one of them.

My questions pertain to acquiring the opinion of those who's had experience in this situation.

We don't expect this to be a permanent move. This is somewhere we want to live until I hit my late 20s/early 30s, so we'd be looking to rent. With that said I'm trying to get an idea of what income we need to have between us to afford it? Compared to other cities (especially if you live in Ohio) are the cost of things such as groceries really that much more expensive? I've seen that in comparison to where I live now (Columbus, OH) the only thing that cost drastically more is housing, but I assume that's based on buying and not renting. I don't expect the move to be for at least a hear, but I'm trying to do anything I can to better prepare myself and make the dream possible in a shorter time.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

-Brian

Brian,

Yes, Hilton Head is an expensive place to live. There are apartments for rent, but they are probably expensive compared to what you can find in Columbus. Since it is a major tourist destination, the prices of everything tends to be a little higher: gas, groceries, eating out, etc. I would definitely check into the job market to see if you can find something, prior to making the move. If you can pull it off, it is a fantastic place to live.

Good luck,
Will

We're starting to recover but it's still a mess. Some people's houses worse than others. Every street is lined with trees and landscape debris waiting for FEMA to collect it.--Dave
