Greetings from Myrtle Beach!
Summer's here! Some "locals" aren't crazy about the warm weather and throngs of vacationers but I love it. I love seeing the restaurants full and lots of people enjoying the beaches, shops, live entertainment and all the other attractions I am lucky enough to be able to enjoy all year long.
Early summer is also a busy time for real estate sales. I had 9 sales last week - my biggest one week total since the big boom a few years ago. I sent out an email mentioning a group of new listings on June 6 and, as of today, 6 of the 15 listings are already under contract - but there are still some good ones left!
An article in today's Sun News mentioned that Horry County, which includes Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, is one of the 100 fastest growing counties in the country - ranking 73rd in population growth since 2010. To put this in perspective there are over 3000 counties in the US. Link to Horry County article
I mentioned The Retreat at Barefoot Resort in last month's newsletter. This brand new development from the developer of North Beach Plantation offers detached homes starting at $200K. They have now started accepting reservations at low introductory prices. A golf membership is included. Detailed info and prices below. Please contact me directly.
My Best Buy picks this month include oceanfront and ocean view houses as well as condos in
Atlantica III, Avista, Bay View, Breakers Boutique, Breakers Resort, Brighton, Camelot, Caribbean Resort, Carolinian Beach Resort, Dunes Village, Grand Atlantic, Grande Shores, Island Vista, Long Bay, Magnolia Pointe, Mar Vista Grande, Margate Tower, Monterey Bay, North Beach, Northshore Villa, Ocean Reef, Oceans One, Pinnacle, Sea Watch, Southwind, The Horizon and Yacht Club Villas.
I also have access to an oceanfront 2BR Breakers Resort condo at a below market price (not in MLS). Please contact me directly if you are interested.
Come see me at the beach!
