You can see from the numbers that the storm this year slowed things down at the beach. Our weather affects the market a great deal. Usually, when there is ice up north, people start to head south. When a storm hits the south, people stay home. Even with the storms that may come through, the beach is PARADISE. The sounds of the ocean, the feel of the sand, there is nothing like it anywhere else.

Hope to see or hear from you either in the next few weeks or the New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving

Thank you for helping us have another exceptional year. It's our clients that have helped us to become one of the top teams on the Grand Strand. We appreciate the opportunity to work with so many amazing people.

Real Estate Update:
We wanted to bring you up to date for October 2018, in Horry and Georgetown County as reported through the CCAR MLS as of November 15th, 2018.

SOLD

  October 2017 October 2018 % of Increase/Decrease
Land 99 113 +14.14%
Residential 649 894 +37.75%
Condominium 452 487 +07.74%

For more detailed information visit: Market Analysis.

The numbers are up this month, but some of these transactions were closings that should have taken place in September. The storm postponed a number of closings with the inability to get in and around the area plus the reinspections on properties after the storm went through.

Interest Rates have been rising, but that hasn't slowed down our market yet. Prices of properties are continuing to increase because of the lack of supply, but as they increase in price more people will want to get their properties on the market. That is when we will see the prices start to level off. Until then, now would be a great time to sell if you have been condisering it.

Happy Halloween

Cool temperatures have arrived at the beach, so the high now is in the 70’s, which is absolutely beautiful. Evenings are in the 40’s-50’s so you might need a jacket now. This month’s numbers show a significant change due to Florence coming through and the closings were off for the month. Some September closings were pushed into October.  We were virtually out of business for three weeks, but that also means that there were fewer showings during the month which will lead to fewer closings for the month of October as well.  Things are much better now that our weather is back to normal and the roads to and from the beach are in great shape. The Myrtle Beach real estate market is getting back on track now.

Good Bye Florence! This past week has been a very trying time for many during Hurricane Florence. We were blessed to only receive a category one storm rather than the category four projected, but the rainfall is still leaving its impact. We know that the impact of this storm extends outside of our local community. Many live-in areas that will have record flooding, as rivers are still rising and should be cresting within the next week. Those of you that are impacted by Hurricane Florence and the flooding are in our thoughts and prayers. Be careful and safe!

Real Estate Update:
We wanted to bring you up to date for June 2018, in Horry and Georgetown County as reported through the CCAR MLS as of July 23rd, 2018.

SOLD

  June 2017 June 2018 % of Increase/Decrease

Inventory is lower now than it has been in over 10 years for condos, land is about the same as it was last year but that shows less than it has been in ten years, and Single family residential is about the lowest it has been in five years. With inventory shrinking, we have a seller market for the homes under $300,000- and in total, we have a 7.54-month supply of houses. We have a 5.09-month supply of Condos priced under $200,00 and 5.76-month supply of condos priced under $300,000. Which shows we are in a sellers’ market for all condos under $300,000. For all condos we have a 6.41 months’ supply which is close to a seller’s market. Unfortunately we have close to a 2 year supply of lots available.
