3 in 10 Americans Looking to Buy

Three in Ten Potential Home Buyers Will Commit

Chase Mortgage did a national survey that shows that three in ten ‘potential buyers’ are planning to buy real estate within the next 18 months. 32 percent of those that took the survey cited low interest rates and 20 percent because rents are rising in their area making buying a better and more affordable option. Approximately ¾ of those that responded are afraid that rising prices are going to keep them from buying. However, in our area, as reported to the local MLS (Coastal Carolina Association of REALTORS®), there has only been a one percent increase in the average purchase price January thru April this year over last year for a single family home or condo/townhouse.

Myrtle Beach is still an affordable place to buy real estate, pricing is steady and rentals are becoming more difficult to find so rents are increasing. Talk to a lender to see what options are available locally that you might qualify for and talk to your Beach Realty Group agent. For more on the survey click here.

Myrtle Beach Area 2nd Fasted Growing Metro Area

Myrtle Beach Area ranked 2nd in the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country

The US Census Bureau released figures about the Fastest Growing areas in the states and the Myrtle Beach area ranked 2nd. The area they define as Horry County in South Carolina and neighboring Brunswick County in North Carolina. The Villages in Florida ranked first. Two other areas in South Carolina ranked in the top 20, Beaufort and Hilton Head. With our warmer weather compared to our neighbors up north it does not surprise many of us. Besides the warmer temperatures the amount of snow we don’t get is wonderful!

With more people moving to the area they will be looking for homes in the Myrtle Beach area. This means a plus for those in the construction industry – people looking for new homes, retail stores and in so many other areas of our economy. Read the article in The Sun News…

Update on Flood Insurance

Great news in the real estate industry for both buyers and sellers. Just today the US Senate voted to approve the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act which provides a 4 year timeout on flood insurance rate increases for properties affected by the sale or flood map changes to previously grandfathered properties. Next the bill goes to the House which REALTORS are mostly confident that we will have enough votes to get this bill through. For more information read up at the National Association of REALTORS site at realtor.org

Best of the Beach

I know this post is almost a month after Beach Realty Group was awarded “Reader’s Choice” Best of the Beach 2013 for real estate along the Grand Strand. We are honored to have received such amazing reviews from the reader of the local Sun News paper after only two years of opening our first location at 1240 21st Avenue N Ste. 108 in Myrtle Beach. Since founding the company, we have opened two more locations covering all areas of the Grand Strand. Our two latest locations are at 9261 Highway 707 Unit J in Myrtle Beach and 2421 Highway 17S., North Myrtle Beach. We could not have achieved this accomplishment without the hard work and dedication of the great REALTORS that have entrusted us to better their real estate selling experience. Thank you again Myrtle Beach for voted us the #1 real estate company in Myrtle Beach.
