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.
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.

Pirates Voyage, Alligator Adventure, Barefoot Landing, Duplin Winery, International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach, Helicopter Adventures, Hollywood Wax Museum, Huntington Beach State Park, Second Avenue Pier, Myrtle Beach Skywheel, Myrtle Beach State Park, Cherry Grove Pier, North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex, Ripley's Believe It or Not and Aquarium, Broadway At The Beach, Sea Screamer and Sea Thunder Dolphin Tours, and The Big "M" Casino Cruises
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.
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.
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!
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.
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/
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 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.
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!
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.
