Holiday Greetings from Myrtle Beach!


In honor of the season, I've kept this month's newsletter light - no long complex articles that require too much time and effort to digest.


For those of you who are bargain hunters even amidst the holiday madness, I've included an article on some seasonal deals that just won't keep in "Holiday Gifts - Off Season Bargains in Your Favorite Resorts". For fans of "A Christmas Story", I triple dog dare you to try to find any of these listings still available by the end of January!


Lately, I've talked to quite a few owners who are considering listing their properties for sale now that all the national and local real estate reports indicate that the market is starting to rebound. Many want to wait until prices get just a little bit higher. Depending on the property and the timing, waiting may or may not be a good idea. Generalized market stats which report that prices have increased some specific percentage and inventory has dropped to some level don't really give you any usable info in assessing the value or saleability of your particular property. Prices in some developments and neighborhoods are certainly increasing but market values in others are flat and will probably remain flat for a long time - possibly for years. Even for the properties in which prices are increasing, the pace of price gains moves in stops and starts. If you want to discuss the current market conditions affecting your property(s), please contact me any time. Remember, however, that the "buying season", the best time of year to sell, with the strongest buying activity, starts early - by mid-January.


Finally, it seems like all the news has been good news lately for the Grand Strand - strong reports on the local economy, rental incomes and the area's real estate market. More new developments, sports venues and events too. Check it out in "News to You".

Holiday Gifts - Off Season Bargains in Your Favorite Resorts


Good listings turn up year-round but in our market the best ones sell very quickly - especially oceanfront condos. This is largely because our market is shopped online daily by potential buyers from all over the country (and the world) so well-priced listings attract instant responses. During the holidays, however, great listings....

News to You - November

This new monthly newsletter feature shares press releases that caught my eye in the previous month.  Here they are for November.  (These articles are on my website under "News/Useful Info"). 
Best Buys (My Picks)
mb coastline  

The following current listings are exceptionally well-priced and represent great values.  The condo spreadsheets are sorted by development, then by number of bedrooms and then by price.  The home spreadsheet is sorted by area, then by price.  We encountered a problem with sorting our lists this month....hopefully we will have it corrected by next newsletter.  These are live links to listing details and they will change according to changes in the MLS (Pending, Sold, etc.).  The listing details are in the same order as the spreadsheets. Please call me directly if you find something of interest to you.
