I just made an offer on a small hilton head contract and as part of it, I said I'd pay closing and they pay 2012 dues (it's a december contract that's stripped until december). The agent said she needed to let me know that south carolina is an "attorney only" state and closing is about $650 even on the smallest contracts. And she said that's the cheapest she's found by far. I can see why those small contracts just sit there. It adds a ton per point on top of the higher maint dues.
