Greetings from Myrtle Beach!

Between the warm weather and the slew of events in recent weeks it's felt like summer arrived a few months early. The strong spring activity and improving economy are generating lots of optimism about the upcoming season and the future in general for the Grand Strand. Check out the press releases below this introduction.


What's the most affordable luxury condo development on the Grand Strand? Is there one you can buy with 20% down and put money back in your pocket at the end of the year? For the surprising answer, take a look at the article below.


Last week an oceanfront condo owner asked me "How's the market doing for properties in my price range?" I decided to take a close look at recent sales volume in different price ranges and I thought the results were interesting enough to share with the readers of this newsletter in the article below.


As usual, I've also included info on some great buying opportunities - just in time for the peak season.


Hope you are having a super spring.
