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!
Let’s talk about Myrtle Beach Real Estate today. We have seen an increase in homes sales and things are really moving here at the beach. We have seen prices stabilizing and we are seeing multiple offers on properties again. This is a great thing. My Northern clients are sick and tired of the cold weather and hard winters they have been having and they are jumping to buy their retirement homes now while interest rates are still low. They are not permanently moving but are going ahead and securing themselves here. We had two little ice storms here, which as a native I can say we have never really had. I can honestly say I don’t know how anyone deals with snow and ice on a daily basis. We are spoiled here in Myrtle Beach. I remember many Christmases that I was in flip flops. Now the term ice storm in Myrtle Beach is NOTHING compared to up north. We shut schools down and stay off the roads but enjoying playing in the inch that we may get here. That being said I think we will see a surge of properties sales in the next few months. Stay tuned to us here at Dargan Real Estate for more updates on the Myrtle Beach Real Estate market and great Myrtle Beach real estate DEALS !
