Life in Myrtle Beach

Not surprisingly, Myrtle Beach has not always been as it is today.  Once the home of the Waccamaw and Winyah Tribes, what is now called the Grand Strand was a vital route where Native American Trade and hunting grounds were relied upon for survival.  Over the years came increasing expansion into the area by settlers looking to expand their land holdings and commerce.  The established southern plantation owners cultivating crops of cotton and tobacco, elsewhere, were unsuccessful in bringing those endeavors to the coast due to unacceptable soils for those crops.

Local business owners, Burroughs and Collins, opted to establish a vacation destination along the Carolina Coast and built the first such resort in 1901.  Mrs. Burroughs was successful in winning the competition to name the resort after presenting the name of Myrtle Beach honoring the natural beauty of the many varieties of Wax Myrtle bushes and trees flourishing along the coastline.  Shortly afterward, the first developed golf course was completed adding to the destinations appeal.  This course is still in operation today and is known as the Pine Lakes Country Club.

What is now known as the Grand Strand features 60 miles of sandy beaches stretching from Winyah Bay in Historic Georgetown to the North Carolina State Line.  Choose your favorite place to spend the day at either Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Waccamaw Neck, Pawleys Island, Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, Garden City, Surfside Beach, Myrtle Beach State Park, Myrtle Beach, Briarcliffe Acres, Windy Hill, Atlantic Beach, Crescent Beach, Ingram Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Ocean Blvd Beach, Cherry Grove or Little River.

So, by now you’ve had enough of sand dunes and sand traps, or waves at the beach and water hazards on the course!  Now what?  There is so much more around the Myrtle Beach area.  Below are some fantastic things to do.  We are sure you will find your own favorites among them.

Music and the fine arts is a welcome reprieve from the typical activity associated with being at the beach.  Take in a show or concert of your choice at The Alabama TheatreThe Carolina OpryHouse of BluesLegends in ConcertComedy CabanaCoastal Carolina University hosts Art exhibits, lectures, theatrical and musical performances, or Carolina Country Music Fest where top country music stars celebrate a good time at the beach!

The Franklin G Burroughs-Simeon B Chapin Art Museum offers 11 galleries throughout the year with many activities for all ages to enjoy.  Brookgreen Gardens is an awesome venue for fine arts appreciation, historical learning, boating tours, a small zoo, butterfly farm and more.  The Long Bay Symphony Orchestra features classical and contemporary masterpieces.

Throughout Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand we have enjoyed and recommend these shows and attractions.  Pirates VoyageAlligator AdventureBarefoot LandingDuplin WineryInternational Culinary Institute of Myrtle BeachHelicopter AdventuresHollywood Wax MuseumHuntington Beach State ParkSecond Avenue PierMyrtle Beach SkywheelMyrtle Beach State ParkCherry Grove PierNorth Myrtle Beach Park and Sports ComplexRipley's Believe It or Not and AquariumBroadway At The BeachSea Screamer and Sea Thunder Dolphin Tours, and The Big "M" Casino Cruises

Living in the Myrtle Beach area is not just about fun and games.  There are year round opportunities to invest your time and gifts working with others in various outreach and volunteer programs.  This is not meant to be an all-inclusive list.  Just passing the word along for those who may be interested.

Some of the more familiar programs include Habitat for HumanityAmerican Red CrossUnited WayHelping Hand of Myrtle Beach and AARP.  Please, feel free to explore volunteer needs in any of the following programs.  The Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce, and Sciway have lists of Non-Profit Organizations and Charities with needs for volunteers.  Some of the additional needs can be found at Brookgreen GardensThe Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach , Grand Strand HealthMyrtle Beach State ParkCreate The Good, and the Myrtle Beach Humane Society.  Check out local Places of Worship, Public Schools, shelters, and special events coordinators for volunteer needs as well.

Those familiar with the Myrtle Beach area are typically around for short visits as vacationers during the summer months.  “Snowbirds” tend to prefer the later months from October to March as a favorite escape from the harsh winters of more northern climates.  Golf enthusiasts find excursions, even if for just the weekend, are in ample supply throughout the year and enjoy the courses, friendships and nights on the town for every taste and budget.  The mild climate of the Myrtle Beach area provides an average temperature of 74 degrees with approximately 215 sunny days making snow shovels a thing of the past…for us a welcome change!  No more wintry mixes, blizzards or dealing with ice for weeks at a time.

Yes, there are other weather events that come with Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand being located along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.  There is potential for what we call “high wind and hail” events such as severe thunderstorms, tropical storms and hurricanes.  There are established zones that can affect the insurance rates of real property.  When you choose to live at the beach you accept these possibilities.  However, these zones may not affect insurance rates for real property just a few miles inland.  To check these zones by property address you need only click the previous link and follow the instructions.

For a closer look at the local weather forecast each day, WMBF News is the local  programming we rely upon and recommend.  There are others that do an equally fine job as well.  Everyone has a favorite and WMBF is ours.  Overall, you can expect a year round pleasant weather pattern with periods of high temperatures in the summer along with cooler coastal breezes.  The winter months have cooler temperatures but rarely get below freezing.

Real Estate Photos...Do's and Don'ts!

Always stay current! With how fast technology moves these days, its important to stay on top of the latest trends and upgrade your devices more often. I'm personally loving my new DLSR camera with fantastic video/wifi capability.  This makes my job a lot easier!  Editing photo's can be very time consuming.

Quality Photos

High Quality Photos are extremely important in Real Estate today. If you don't take good pictures, a lot of practice or having a great photographer is essential!!! If a potential seller views one of your listings and observes poor quality photos, what chance will you have of gaining that listing? I personally like having a quality camera on standby so I can add more photos quickly or make adjustments when needed.

How Photos Can Affect Your Listing

I'm not talking about a cell phone either! Although they're incredible nowadays (and I'm guilty of this too :P ), keep in mind a camera is designed for one or two purposes ONLY...to TAKE HIGH QUALITY PHOTOS and/or Photos & Videos. I find that cell phones can capture nice pictures outside as long as there's lots of light and plenty of room. However, when it comes to interior pictures, 1/5 a bathroom; the corner of a small room or something that appears to be from a haunted house (dark), is just not going to cut it!

Photo Editing

Good Editing is essential as well. You can improve and modify pictures by reducing shadows, increasing light, adjusting tint, cropping & straightening, etc. However, I'm personally not a huge fan of "over editing" because when I see a listing that looks fake, my mind automatically says "well I wonder what it actually looks like in person". You can take great photos without "over-embellishing". There's a fine line agents need to be careful not to cross. Full on removing or cropping out structures in the background or removing giant stains is not fair to consumers. Many times they get angry once they feel they have been deceived. I hear more and more complaints about properties looking totally different in pictures than in person.  My advice is to take "authentic" pictures once the listing is staged properly.

Staging The Property

I'll discuss this topic more in depth in my next blog post.  It takes cooperation between the agent and owner, as good staging is essential now that you're not planning on "over-editing" your listing photos.  Things such as removing clutter, a deep cleaning, yard work and landscaping are all key components to good staging. 

Although not a "professional photographer", I've been snapping pictures for over 10 years so have a good feel for it.  For example, this listing sold in 3 days.  I truly believe the photos played a big part, as we had multiple showings and offers. http://www.acerealtysc.com/property/1710925/

Quality Video or Virtual Tour

This is another topic I'll be discussing in the near future on how to improve your listings. 

Whether your an agent striving to improve or a seller that wants/needs to sell quickly, I wish you the best!

Myrtle Beach New Construction Is BOOMING!

Myrtle Beach New Construction BOOM!

Myrtle Beach is one of the fastest growing areas in the country.   Its no wonder having white sandy beaches, beautiful sunrises over the blue Atlantic and numerous area attractions such as golf, Broadway at the Beach,  Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, etc. 

New construction has been on fire in Myrtle Beach!  Prices are still very reasonable and builders such as Lennar, DR Horton, Beazer, H&H Homes and others many times offer incentives and discounts for using their preferred lenders and Closing Attorneys.  Ace Realty REALTOR's have been successful getting additional upgrades thrown in from time to time as well.

Myrtle Beach's BOOMING New Construction Market!

Year to date in 2017, 432 "to be built", "never occupied" or "under construction" MLS listed homes have Sold according to our local MLS stat's.  This is in Myrtle Beach alone! 

When other areas such as North Myrtle Beach, Briarcliff, Little River, Longs, Loris, Conway, Murrells Inlet, Surfside Beach, Pawleys Island are included that number skyrockets to 1,206 in 2017 (through July 1st)!

Keep in mind, this does not include any private sales...only MLS listed homes.  So that is a big number being we are only halfway through the year!

In 2016, in the Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas 2,625 Sold.  In 2015, 2,422 Sold.  In 2014, 1,987 sold.  In 2013, 1,684 Sold. In 2012, 1,684 sold.  Please note that 1,000 more homes Sold in 2016 as 2012!  

Get in NOW while prices are still reasonable!

Each year as more homes sell, the builders are gaining confidence and have slowly increased their prices.  Also, supplier have started raising their prices on material due to "supply & demand.  I've sold homes for clients that purchased as little as two years ago and profited greatly already.  Prices are still very reasonable, is its a good time to invest.

 

If you're looking for change of scenery, seeking an active lifestyle or are considering retiring, Myrtle Beach is a great place to do it!  I've seen a drastic change within the last couple years.  New business's are opening up everywhere and older building are being restored.
