Welcome to Bluffton

A coastal town soaked in character and culture. Discover Bluffton real estate!

Bluffton is a town that seamlessly marries the coastal way of life with charming Southern hospitality. It’s a small, eclectic town full of beauty and culture. About an hour from Savannah, it’s tucked away from the larger metropolitan areas without lacking anything its residents might need. The Bluffton real estate market offers a variety of houses waiting to be called home!

Bluffton was founded in 1825, and for many years it served as a retreat for the families of the people who worked in the rice fields. Because of its convenient location along the May River, it became a hub of water transportation between Savannah and Charleston. It suffered after the coastal highway was built, and it would take the development of nearby Hilton Head to help reinvigorate it.

​​​​​​​Bluffton homes for sale vary greatly in size depending on where they’re located.

Then there are larger, more upscale homes — some of which are located in private communities with their own golf courses and clubhouses. The depth of variety within this charming town shows that it truly is a community for everyone, and the Bluffton real estate market is ready to welcome them home.
