Here at Dargan Real Estate we love helping our first time home buyers. The first step is contacting us and letting one of our knowledgeable agents know exactly what you are looking for. Whether you are looking for a Condo, a town home, or a house. We can help point you in the right direction. Being pre-approved is very important. This allows a lender to check your credit and see what you can afford to buy. If you need us to direct you to an amazing lender who will offer programs and incentives for first time home buyers we have you covered. This gives us the price point to work with, then we are down to specifics, number of bedrooms, location, proximity to work or the beach. The more you tell us the more we are able to get you exactly what you are looking for. We will then email you properties to view via email and narrow down our search to the ones you really want to see. We will set up the appointments to get you in to all your favorites. From there you will tell us what the front runner is and we will supply all the information about the property. We will then submit an offer for you and submit that offer with a copy of an earnest money check (showing good faith and that you are a serious buyer) and pre-approval letter. From there we will help you negotiate your first property and walk you through the inspection process and closing process. Having a great closing attorney is key too. You can use whoever you like for the closing attorney, inspector, CL-100 (termite inspection) but we are happy to refer you to the ones we use and trust as well. Here at Dargan Real Estate we guide you through the whole process and make home buying fun and easy. Call us today !
A local favorite for food and fun will be re-opened March 29th. If you have not visited this little gem then you are missing out. The Anchor is located in the Grande Dunes Neighborhood near the Marina Inn. Locals love to pop in for some lunch and drinks while watching the boats go by on the Intracoastal Waterway. It’s all open air and the staff and atmosphere are wonderful. The locals hate when the Anchor closes for the season but love when they re-open! This means Summer is coming fast ! Residents of the Grande Dunes, Plantation Point, The Forest and other neighborhoods can jump on their boats and ride up to the Anchor for some food and fun in the sun. The Anchor is one of the few places that you can literally sit in the water and watch the boats go by. Stop by the Anchor and check it out for yourself .
After some winter weather, things here in Myrtle Beach are warming up especially, with the Myrtle Beach Real Estate Market. New constriction is booming and after a few cold months we expect to see an influx of buyers from up North moving to the area. If our winter here in Myrtle Beach was a little harsher than the norm, I can only imagine what the hard winter months have been like for our friends up North. My clients from the northern areas have reported new lows and extreme weather. We believe that though things have been moving here, we have not even seen the swarm of buyers who will be purchasing in the next two months. The extreme weather up North has kept buyers from being able to venture down and has turned buyers who were on the fence about moving to making the jump. They have had more snow, more ice and more heartache than they care for and in the next few months we expect them to be on the move to finding their home here…. in Myrtle Beach. If you are one of the many northerners that are ready to make the leap to warmer weather and fun in the sun please contact us at Dargan Real estate today ! Life is better …at the Beach !
When you are looking to buy and the decision of house or condo come to mind think… town home or townhouse. It’s the obvious choice, you get the best of both worlds.

Now if you know Myrtle Beach and you know you want the central location, and the close proximity to the beach then you know the only areas that townhomes are available. Or you can just call us at Dargan Real Estate and we will tell you. Emmens Preserve at Market Commons offers townhomes. Carriage Row, Carolina Ridge, Myrtle Point, St. James Square and Pineapple Bay are all located in amazing locations in Myrtle Beach just to name a few. The Fairways at Wild Wing on 501 and Legends on 501 both offer town homes as well. There are some great Deals in Carolina Ridge at the moment for two story townhomes under 100,000.

Now I enjoying visiting Florida as much as the next person, but all the storms they have been having don’t help their case. I just got back from Miami and building down in Florida is through the roof. Their prices are souring again and that’s a positive for them. However if you are form the Northern states looking for a second place at the beach then Myrtle beach is definitely your best bet. Myrtle Beach doesn’t have nearly the storms and hurricanes that Florida does. The insurance here is much lower, you are also closer to other family members and friends that still live up north, much closer. It’s a hop skip and a jump for you via car or plane. Florida is a much farther journey. Also Myrtle Beach is so sweet and southern. We definitely have the southern hospitality down and the weather here pretty much year round is amazing. You can also get more for your money here. So if you are contemplating Myrtle Beach or Florida gives us a call at Dargan Real Estate and let us show you why you are going to love calling Myrtle Beach home! Did I mention we don’t get snow here 🙂
If you are thinking of putting a For Sale By Owner sign (FSBO) in you front yard, please think again. You think you are saving money by not having to pay a 3% commission to a listing agent. You will have to pay a 3% commission to an agent who brings a buyer. Let’s just break it down. You have no access to the local MLS system which informs every agent and immediately shoots your listing to Realtor.com which millions of viewers see. You have to answer any and all phone calls, set up your own showings, show your home, and let’s be honest unless the person is driving down your street they do not know your home exist. think of your mortgage payments that you will have to continually pay as your home will take much longer to sell. You could have paid the 3% and had a lot less headaches and saved money and sold your home sooner. Think about it … and call Dargan Real Estate today to sell your home!
