by Jerry Pinkas

How to make money on short term rentals

It is no secret that Myrtle Beach, SC is a popular destination for many couples, families, retirees and vacationers throughout the year. People are drawn to the beautiful beaches and incredible lifestyle that this area affords its residents and guests. Knowing the draw and popularity of the area, have you ever wondered if it would be a good idea to purchase a rental property? If you have, you are not alone! A question we get asked all the time here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts is, “Can I make money on a short-term rental?” And as you may have guessed, that is exactly where our blog post is going to be taking us today!

Can I really make money with short-term rentals?

If you are wondering if you can really make money off short term rentals here in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC, the simple answer is absolutely yes you can! Myrtle Beach, SC and the surrounding areas are the home to some of the most beautiful beaches and coastlines in the country. The lure of the beach and ocean has not gone away, nor will it go away any time soon. There is definitely not a shortage of people that are flocking to the area to take in the relaxing beach lifestyle, fun activities and delicious restaurants that our extraordinary city provides residents and guests alike. To bring this idea home, close your eyes and imagine this. It is Fourth of July weekend and you live across the street from the beach. You have a garage with a cot in it. We are sure that people would consider this prime real estate and you would be able to rent it out. Crazy, huh!? Therefore, if you are thinking of buying a rental property but are not sure if there will be renters looking for places to stay, let us assure you that if you buy it, they will come!

 

Now obviously there are things you need to do on your end to ensure that people will want to rent your property. First, you want to make sure that the space is clean and appealing. No one wants to stay in a rental that has not been taken care of and is very much outdated. You also want your marketing to accurately reflect what renters can expect to find. An example of this would be to have professional images of the space taken and a brief description of the property, as well as surrounding amenities, things to do and restaurants to enjoy. You want renters to not only get excited about the space itself but also about the area they will be staying in and exploring during their time there.

Now you may be asking yourself how we know this works. And to be honest, that is a fair question. Well, we practice what we preach! We have agents here in our office that own condos and successfully rent them out – and we can help you do the same! Here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts, we can help guide and direct you on which condos would be a good investment to rent out, as well as which properties to stay away from. Allow us to help you find that the property that will be the best return on your investment and end up being a money machine for you each month.

How to make money on vacation rental property

What are the perks of someone renting through me versus just getting a hotel room?

There are many things that draw people to looking at short-term rental properties versus just securing a room at a hotel. First, many people enjoy the coziness, amenities and homelike feeling that many rentals afford their visitors. Hotel rooms can tend to be stale and lack the personal touch, while rentals can feel like you are staying at a friend’s house and allow you to feel a little more comfortable. Also, many rentals will have amenities such as a kitchen for cooking meals (and therefore potentially saving families money during their vacation), have different rooms to enjoy (and also separating the parents from the kids) and overall allow visitors to settle in a bit more.

Short term rental investment property

Lastly, rentals can tend to be less expensive than traditional hotels. If you are going on vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC with your extended family, you can usually find a larger house that will accommodate everyone. Not only are you all able to stay together under one roof which makes for beautiful memories and a whole lot of fun, but you can also split the cost between everyone that is staying there. Typically, this tends to break down less per night than everyone staying in separate hotel rooms. As you could imagine, this is a huge draw for renters and makes short-term rental properties more appealing than finding a hotel to stay in.

How much money can I make each month with short-term rentals?

It is difficult for us to answer exactly how much money you can make on your short-term rental in Myrtle Beach, SC as there are many factors that go into determining how much you should be charging per night. Things such as the condition of your property and how many the place can sleep, as well as how close it is in relation to the beach and other restaurants and activities around town. Obviously, if you have a house that can comfortably sleep a family of 5 and it is right on the water you can charge more per stay than a one-bedroom condo that is several blocks away from the water.

Short term rental market Myrtle Beach

You also want to take into consideration the time of year that will bring you the most renters, and therefore the most rental income. We are willing to bet that you will have more people wanting to rent out your property during the summer months when many individuals, couples and families are heading to the beach to soak up the warm summer sun. As opposed to the winter months when there are less out of town visitors that would be looking to rent your property. So as you can tell, there are many factors that should be considered when trying to determine just how much money can be made from your rental property. But rest assured, Myrtle Beach, SC is a popular destination for many vacationers all throughout the year, and you are sure to have people looking for a place to call home for a few nights and/or weeks.

Communities in Myrtle Beach SC

Have you ever been in your car singing along to your favorite song, driven past an open plot of land in a neighborhood and thought to yourself how perfect it would be to build a house on it? Well if you have, you are not alone! A question we get asked all the time here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts is: “if I buy a piece of land, can I build a house on it later?” And the answer, simply put, is yes! And as you may have guessed, that is exactly where today’s blog is going to take us.

You are absolutely able to purchase a plot of land and build your dream house on it later, and there are actually many communities around the Myrtle Beach, SC area that we can show you, and parcels of land we can help you envision building on. So if you have ever thought of buying land, mapping out your dream home and building it when the time is right for you, then you do not want to miss today’s post. We will be talking about some of the perks of buying land and building on it, some of the factors that go into what type of home you can build and what you can do if you are looking for a trusted and experienced contractor in Myrtle Beach, SC to use that will be the best fit for you and your needs. Let’s jump right in!

New Homes Myrtle Beach

What are the perks of buying land and building on it later?

As you could imagine, there are many perks that come with purchasing a piece of land, planning out your dream house and building it on your terms and timeline. And one of the main perks is that last part: your timeline. If you are going to take the time, energy and money to build a home from start to finish, the last thing you want to do is feel rushed with the process. Having the flexibility of when you want to start building on the land will allow you to do research, make plans and ensure that everything is how you want it prior to starting the build out. Taking your time and starting when you are ready is a good way to help ensure that things will go smoothly and you will love the end result of the project.

 

Another (obvious) perk to building on a piece of land is that everything will be new and you will be the first person to live in the home. This may not be a big deal to some, but most people love the idea of no one living in the space prior to their arrival. There will be no stains on the carpet, no holes in the wall or chipped paint around the door frames. And while these are all small things that can easily be fixed in an older home, the freshness and newness of a just-built home is a huge draw for most families, and is a large factor in them choosing to go this route. And on that same note, another perk to buying a piece of land and building on it later is that you have time to research everything you want to incorporate into your house.

Home Builders Myrtle Beach SC

Close your eyes and think what your dream home looks like. What color are the walls? What appliances are in the kitchen? What do your countertops look like? What finishes do you want to incorporate? Do you have wood floors or tile throughout? These are all aspects that you will most likely be able to pick and choose from when building your home on the piece of land you purchased. Having the house built to your exact wants, needs and taste can end up saving you time and money as opposed to buying an older home and having to update and/or fix things around the house. And that is always a win in our book!

What factors go into the type of house I can build in a specific area?

There are many factors that can contribute to the type of house you are able to build in a specific area and neighborhood. A few of these factors include geography, where the land is located, the type of homes that are being built, as well as what is allowed and what is not allowed. If the neighborhood has an HOA (Homeowners Association), then there may be specific guidelines that you have to adhere by for the look of the exterior of the home, like paint color and design for example. There are many questions that are sure to arise in this department, but our experienced team of realtors will help you answer each one that comes up and navigate the waters.

Myrtle Beach New Home

Can you help make recommendations on contractors in the Myrtle Beach, SC area for after the land is purchased?

From a builders standpoint, here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts we get asked a lot if we can help to point people in the direction of a good contractor to help them build their dream home in Myrtle Beach, SC. And the answer to that, again simply put, is yes. Why is it so important to find the right contractor you ask? Well, it is important to understand that every community has a different dynamic to it. There are certain communities in which we would recommend a specific contractor, and other communities in which we maybe would not recommend that specific contractor.

This goes to further point out how important it is to work with a team that not only knows the local real estate comps, but also is in tune with the communities themselves, the build outs of these communities and the right contractors to connect you to. And we can help you avoid getting into bed with contractors that you should stay away from. This will help to save you time, money and aggravation down the road. And when you are taking on a large project, every saved penny and nerve is a good thing!

Asbestos in Your Home

by Jerry Pinkas

 Eighty percent of homes in the United States built before 1980 are said to have asbestos fibers present. Asbestos is a group of six naturally-occurring mineral fibers and was initially thought to be a great building material due to its chemical-resistant and fire-resistant properties. However, the mineral has been known to cause a number of illnesses, including different types of cancer and asbestosis. When purchasing a home, being mindful of asbestos can mitigate health implications and prevent the high cost of abatement.

 

Where is Asbestos in the Home?

 

Prior to being linked to several diseases, including mesothelioma, the toxic mineral was a popular choice used in millions of American homes during the mid-20th century. The government began instituting restrictions in the 1970s, but prior to  that asbestos was used for insulation, soundproofing, and fireproofing. It can still be found in those capacities today. The toxin was also often mixed with cement, making it harder to identify.

 

Basement

Asbestos could be lurking in the basements of older homes in the following places:

 

●          Water heaters

●          Coal stoves

●          Wood burning stoves

●          Furnaces

●          Cement bases

●          Pipe insulation

●          HVAC duct and ventilation insulation

 

Main Home

It can be difficult to spot asbestos with the naked eye, but the mineral was used throughout the home in products and materials like these:

 

●          Old caulking

●          Flooring

●          Ceiling tiles

●          Plaster

●          Paint

●          Linoleum tiles

●          Light fixtures

●          Window glazes and putties

 

Outside the House

Your home's exterior can also harbor asbestos-containing materials, including:

 

●          Shingles

●          House siding

●          Roof tiles

●          Fiberboards

●          Insulation

 

It’s important to note that while asbestos may not be present in every one of these products, it’s still best to be mindful of the possibility when you’re considering purchasing a home or planning a renovation project.

 

Dealing with Asbestos

 

Knowing when your house was built should give you an idea of whether or not your home is affected by asbestos. If your house was built before the 1980s but was significantly remodeled since then, your chances of dealing with asbestos decrease. However, if you suspect the toxic mineral is in your home, these three simple rules will prevent you from being exposed.

 

  1. Do Not Disturb It - Although asbestos-containing materials, known as ACMs, are considered safe when left alone and fully intact, they may release fibers when they become damaged. Don't ever attempt to remove ACMs on your own because you can accidentally expose yourself or others to the toxic fibers.

 

  1. Test It - If you decide to go ahead with a home renovation project involving potential damage to older materials or the foundation, it’s important to contact a licensed asbestos inspector to test the area first.

 

  1. Have It Removed - If the area tests positive for asbestos, find and hire a qualified asbestos abatement contractor to have it removed safely and properly disposed.

 

Misconceptions Regarding Asbestos

 

Now that you know where you can find asbestos and how to properly take care of removing the toxin, here are a few other common misconceptions about the mineral and the effects it can have on your health.

 

 

 

  1. Asbestos only impacts the lungs - MYTH

If asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested, the particles can cling to the linings of the lungs, heart or abdomen, causing different forms of mesothelioma cancer. Mesothelioma is diagnosed in approximately 3,000 Americans each year.

 

  1.  Mesothelioma is the only known disease caused by asbestos - MYTH

While asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, other diseases can develop over time due to exposure, including asbestos-related lung cancer and asbestosis. Symptoms can sometimes take 20 to 50 years to appear after someone has been exposed to the carcinogenic mineral. A typical mesothelioma prognosis is usually poor and patients are commonly aged 55 or older when diagnosed.

 

  1.  Asbestos has been banned in the United States - MYTH

Although asbestos use has been banned in countries like the UK and Australia, up to one percent of asbestos is still legally allowed for use in building materials in the United States. An important truth to understand is that there is no safe amount of asbestos to be in contact with.

Buying A New Construction Home In Myrtle Beach

by Jerry Pinkas

Model homes Myrtle Beach SC

Are you starting your search for a new home in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC and find yourself wondering if purchasing a new construction home is the right path for you and your family? Do you ever wonder about the perks that accompany a new build versus a slightly older home?  We get a lot of questions here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts, and one theme we see all the time centers around new construction and new home communities. And as you may have guessed, that is exactly what we are going to be talking about in today’s blog. If you have ever wondered what all the hype around new construction homes is, or have any questions about the topic, then you do not want to miss today’s post. Let’s jump in! 

 

Are new construction homes around Myrtle Beach, SC expensive and located far from the beach?

Because Myrtle Beach, SC is such a popular destination for many people around the country, you may assume that any new construction homes or neighborhoods come with an extremely high price tag and are probably located in a secluded part of town. And while this can be true in some cases, there are new construction areas where you will find reasonability priced homes that are also not a haul when you want to spend some quality time with family and friends at the beach. You can find new build homes that start at just under $200,000 and are located just a mile away from the beach. So just to recap: you can potentially (based on availability) purchase a brand new build, without breaking the bank and be situated just a hop, skip and a jump away from the beach. That is what we call a win-win-win!

New home builders Myrtle Beach SC

Why can’t I find these new construction listings online?

While the World Wide Web is a very useful tool, it is important to understand that you should not solely rely on the internet when conducting your search for a new home. Especially if you are interested in buying a new construction home. Because these are brand new houses, many are not even listed on the MLS during the beginning stages of construction. And while we are talking about it, is important to also understand that the MLS is only a small portion of what is really going on around town when it comes to inventory. There is a lot of new construction going on, and our experienced agents here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts can take you to these properties and talk about price points, as well as show you the different layouts and styles that are available for you to choose from. So, what you see on the internet can be a good place to get you started, but you want an experienced real estate agent by your side to show you what is going on and give you the opportunity to view these communities in person so you can make an informed decision based on what you see in real life.

What are the perks of buying a new construction home in Myrtle Beach, SC?

There are many perks when it comes to buying a new construction home in Myrtle Beach, SC. The first, and most obvious to many people, is that no one has lived in the house prior to you. No one has set the fire alarm off when cooking a meal in the kitchen, no one has dented the walls, no one has cracked a tile in the bathroom and no one has spilled any liquid on the carpets. And while all these are minor things, they are still signs that the house has been lived in before you got there. There is something to be said about starting fresh and knowing that everything in your home is brand new. And for many people, that is a huge draw to purchasing a new construction home.

Myrtle Beach New Construction

Customization is also a huge potential perk. In some cases, the builder will allow the buyer to have a hand in customizing and designing the space. Things such as hardware finishes, flooring, built-ins, and exterior paint color can be chosen by the buyer, which allows the home and space to be tailored to their specific wants, needs, and taste. Another perk of a new construction home is that you will find fewer repairs than you would in a home that was previously lived in. Buyers will not have to replace old, stained carpet, purchase new updated appliances, patch any holes in the walls or repaint any of the rooms as everything is brand new when you move in.

On that same note, new construction homes can potentially also end up being less maintenance down the road as many new homes are built specifically to minimize maintenance requirements. With an older home, you may have to replace things more frequently and keep an eye on updates and maintenance that needs to be performed. Fire safety is another perk with a new build home, as builders today often incorporate fire safety features that may not have been developed in years prior. Things such as hard-wired smoke detectors and fire retardant in insulation and carpeting are features that you may see. With the new, evolving technology that is present, you can feel safe and sleep soundly knowing that your home has the proper fire safety features in place.

Speaking of new and evolving technology, you are more likely to find new construction homes that are built to be more energy efficient. Things such as heating and cooling, insulation, air sealing, and appliances are some of the variables that can be optimized for energy efficiency in a new construction home. Ensuring that your cool air is not escaping during the warmer summer months and your warm air is not escaping during the cooler winter months can help to keep your energy bills lower, and thus more money in your pocket. Many residents and homeowners do not realize the amount of money that (quite literally) goes out the door with poor insulation around doors and window frames in older homes. 

Pre construction homes Myrtle Beach

What should I do if I am interested in purchasing a new construction home in Myrtle Beach, SC?  

If you or someone you know is looking to purchase a new construction home, be sure to give our experienced team here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts a call today! As we discussed above, many of these new construction homes and communities are not listed online or on the MLS. So if you are wanting to secure one before it hits the market you have to work with a team that knows the ins and outs of the area. Allow our team to take you to these neighborhoods and show you around so you can really get a feel for what you will be purchasing. We will answer any questions that come up and show you all the different options that are available to you.

We understand that buying a home can seem like a daunting task, especially when it comes to new construction homes. Our experienced and knowledgeable agents here at the Jerry Pinkas Team will guide you every step of the way and ensure that your new construction home buying experience is second to none. Why have average when you can have the best? Give us a call today, we look forward to hearing from you and working with you soon!

Top Things To Avoid When You Are Purchasing A Condo

by Jerry Pinkas

Myrtle Beach Condos for Sale

Have you or someone you know been thinking of buying a condo in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC? Are you excited about the possibilities of condo living, but have questions or concerns about the buying process? Do you stay awake at night wondering about all the things you should/need to avoid when looking to purchase a condo, and wish you had an experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent to help you navigate these potential pitfalls? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then this blog post is for you! Today we are going to be talking about all things condo and give you information on how to avoid the buying mistakes that are costly. So without further ado, lets jump in!

Is the internet a good place to find information on condos?  

Now more than ever, we know there is a lot of information available to you at your fingertips via the World Wide Web. And while this is a luxury in a lot of ways, it is also important to understand that not all the information that you find online is accurate. There is a lot of misinformation that people are taking in, especially when it comes to buying and selling real estate. So while it is okay to browse online, the best way to get information is to talk to a knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent in your area. Not only will they be able to answer all your questions, but they should have a great handle on what is going on with properties in the area and give you advice accordingly.

How to buy a condo for the first time

What are some of the main things to avoid when looking to purchase a condo?

It is no secret that condo living is a great way to go for a lot of people, especially millennia’s and seniors who may be retiring and looking to downsize their living space a bit. But there are a few things to keep an eye out for when you start your search. Understanding that things have changed a bit can give you a leg up. What do we mean by that? There are buildings that have had past and/or present litigations, slip and fall defects, construction defects and other similar things can be considered minor, but are still things to look out for. You want to be aware of the condition of the building you are buying into so there are minimal surprises down the road.

You will also want to keep an eye out for the HOA (Homeowners Association) budget. Does it have reserves? Do they have money in the bank or are they losing money? Do they have a cash call? These are all very important things to know and questions that should be asked. Also, you want to know about HOA meeting minutes and what is going on. When it comes to big projects, you want to see if they have been completed, if there is some other project that is going on that needs to be finished up and any potential future projects they have planned. For example, if there was a damaged roof from a storm, you want to know if there is any mold that has subsequentially arisen from the water damage. Another big area you want to look into is any balcony issues, as these can be costly. You want to know all these things before you get involved and invested in the property. Lastly, we want you to understand that the skill of the agent you are working with is a direct relation to how successful your experience will be. So finding a great real estate agent that is knowledgeable and will work hard in your best interest will give you the best chance of success in your buying experience.

 

Are you buying a condo or a condotel?

First off, you may be asking yourself what exactly a condotel is. A condotel, while it is not a condo, usually has a vacancy sign outside and is typically rented by the night, by the week and/or by the month. Does the property you are looking at have a rental desk, a central phone system, daily maid service, and valet parking? If so, these are all signs the property may be a condotel. It is important to understand the difference so you know exactly what type of property you are looking at and do not invest your time looking into in a building that ultimately will not fit your needs. Our team here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts will be able to walk you through more of the differences and be sure to steer you clear of these properties if you are looking to purchase a typical condo unit. And on a side note, if you ever do find yourself looking to purchase a condotel, we have some unfortunate news for you. You will find that 99 percent of banks will actually not finance a condotel.

Tips to buying a condo in Myrtle Beach

Why is it important to work with a good lender when looking to purchase a condo?

There are a number of reasons why it is so important to work with a good lender when purchasing a condo. One of these reasons is because, if you are working with a good lender, they will be able to help you review any litigations on the property, as well as review the home owner’s documents on your behalf. Why would they do this you ask? Because as much as you do not want to put money into a bad property, they do not want to loan you money on a project that is going to get them in trouble either. So using the correct lender is definitely a bonus on your end. It also never hurts to have an extra set of eyes on things to help ensure you are making the best decision given your current situation, as well as your wants and needs in a property.

Do you need a termite inspection on a condo

Have you or someone you know ever had to deal with termites at your/their home or condo? If you have, then you understand not only how costly it can be, but also how it can turn your life completely upside down for a good amount of time. Termites attack thousands of homes and buildings each year in the United States, and homeowners fork out millions of dollars annually to repair the damage they cause and treat the termite problem itself. And if you think that just because your condo is on the ninth floor of a concrete building that you are exempt from this potential issue, you are sadly mistaken. And as you may have guessed, that is exactly what we are going to be discussing in today’s blog post!

Termite Inspections in Myrtle Beach

What are termites and how can you identify them?

Before we get into the meat and potatoes of today’s post, we wanted to give a brief overview of what termites are and how you can possibly detect them. Termites are often referred to as the “silent destroyer” as they do not come out into the open which makes them very difficult to detect at times. In some cases, termites can be secretly thriving and hiding in your home, condo or yard and do not show any immediate signs of the damage that is being done. If you are looking for information on how you can detect these pesky creatures, termites usually have straight, beaded antennae, their wings are equal size, they have uniformed waists and measure approximately 1 cm to a few millimeters in length.

Primarily, termites feed on cellulose (which is a part of wood), but they are also known to damage books, insulation, paper and even filtration system and swimming pool liners. Additionally, while there are different types of termites, they all feed on detritus which include dead trees and plants, as well as dead parts of living trees including wood. And unfortunately, regardless of their construction type, all homes have the ability to provide cellulose food which in turn harbors termite infestation. So while you may think this issue may never present itself in your living space, all house foundations, shelves, furniture and even books can draw in termites and provide a cozy place for them to stay and live. Now, this information is not meant to scare you, but rather provide you with the knowledge and tools to be aware and alert to catch it fast if you see any signs of termites in your home or condo.

What types of termite’s attack condos?

We may be giving you more information than you originally thought you were looking for, but we figured we would educate you on everything related to termite and condos so you can better understand how everything is related. Subterranean and drywood termites are the two specific types of termites that frequently attack condos. Subterranean termites are known to attack buildings from underground by entering through cracks in concrete slabs or from flowerbeds through tunneling under siding that is close to the soil. On the other hand, while drywood termites do not live in the soil, they tend to attack condo buildings in the spring and summer during their mating flights. They also tend to land on the wooden trim around windows and doors and make their nests in small cracks in wood to start new colonies.

Can termite’s travel from one unit to another in a condo building?

Now don’t freak out, but the answer is yes. It is no secret the damage termites can do to a single-family home, but when it comes to condos, termites can be downright destructive and can easily travel from one condo unit to the next. Of the two, subterranean termites are the worst because they often enter the building through expansion joints between two slabs, allowing them to easily and swift fully inhabit two or more units at the same time. On the same note, if these subterranean termites were to invade one unit, they can enter the neighboring unit by traveling through the common wall. Due to the fact that these types of termites are able to stay hidden, they tend to cause damage to multiple condo units before they are even discovered or detected by the residents.

At the same time, drywood termites are also able to move freely between condo units. You will see this especially if they have inhabited exterior wooden trim, a wooden fence, or a carport, as drywood termites then gain access to the several units that these areas are attached to. Now you may be asking yourself what happens if a unit in a condo building is affected by termites. And, as you can probably tell by now when termites invade condo buildings the exterminating process can prove to be extremely challenging. This is especially true if there are several units in the same building that have termites.

New construction condo inspection checklist

Why do I have to pay for a termite inspection, even if my condo is located on the 9th floor of a concert building?

Hopefully, by now we have equipped you enough information for you to understand why you need a termite inspection, even if your condo is located in the upper levels of your condo building. It is always better to be safe than sorry, and just because your building is made from concrete does not dismiss it from the potential of a termite infestation. And as we spoke about earlier, even if the unit does not outwardly show any termite damage, you never know what is going on within the walls and unseen areas of the condo unit. The termites may have spread to your unit from a neighboring unit and you want to bring in a professional so they can assess the situation. Additionally, some pest inspectors will also look for leaks, beetles, mold and water damage within the unit when they come out for the termite inspection. This is a huge bonus as it will give you a better overall picture of the status of the unit, and allow you to fix any potential issue before it gets worse down the line.

What does it cost to sell real estate in South Carolina

Have you been thinking of selling your home in Myrtle Beach, SC and find yourself wondering all the potential costs that are associated as a seller? Do you find yourself scratching your head whenever someone starts talking about the selling process and all it entails? If so, today’s blog post is for you! While some may find themselves overwhelmed by the thought, the selling process does not have to be a daunting experience. Once you understand how it all works and who is responsible for what, you may just find yourself getting excited to sell your current property and daydreaming of all the potential that your next chapter can bring. So without further ado, let’s jump into today’s topic and discover what costs the seller is responsible for!

What are closing costs?

When buying or selling a home, it is crucial to understand not only the process but all the fees and costs associated with the purchase or sale of the property. The last thing you want is to be surprised with having to pull your checkbook out when everything is said and done. With that being said, closing costs encompass all the charges and fees that are related to the sale of a home beyond the agreed upon price of the property itself. Now it is also important to realize that these costs vary based on things such as property type, region, and lender, but you can usually bet on seeing inspection fees, transfer fees, appraisal fees, title search fees, loan origination fees and commissions that are paid to the real estate agents.

What closing costs are buyers responsible for?

While this blog post is mainly focused on closing costs associated with sellers, we also wanted to make sure to touch on some of the closing costs that buyers are responsible for as well. And while buying a home can be an exciting time, it is crucial to understand that purchasing a home requires more out-of-pocket money than just what covers the down payment. You also need to take into account the money needed to pay for services rendered, which are also known as closing costs. It is important to understand that if, as the buyer, you do not have enough money on top of the purchase price to cover the buyer’s closing costs, there is a possibility that the transaction may not close at all.

Typically, if you are a home buyer, you will pay between (roughly) two and five percent of the purchase price of your new home in closing costs. So, for example, if you were to purchase your new home for $150,000, you may expect to pay between $3,000 and $7,500 in closing costs. Other potential costs include recording fees, title policies, courier charges and inspections. It is important to note as well that the buyer is required to cover their portion of the closing costs when the property is closed on.

What closing costs are sellers responsible for?

When it comes to selling your home, you may be under the impression that every dollar from the sale is going to go directly into your pocket. And while you have the potential to make a lot of money from the sale, you also must stop to realize the costs that come with the closing on your property. So before you run off and plan how you are going to spend all your incoming cash, make sure to know exactly what that final number is. One of the larger costs for the sellers in the closing process is the commission that is paid to the real estate agents that are involved in the transactions. And while these commissions are negotiable and can vary to a degree by market, the average/typical commission is six percent of the sale price of the property. That percentage is split between both the buyer’s agent and the listing agent. So, as an example, if a property sells for $350,000 there would be a $21,000 commission that both the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent would split.

Another cost for the seller during the closing is the loan payoff, which you will often see is slightly higher than the remaining balance on the loan due to prorated interest. It is important to note that, in some cases, you may be forced to pay a prepayment penalty as you are paying off the loan prior to the end of the term. You may also have to pay recording fees or transfer fee/taxes, which are taxes imposed by the local government or state to transfer the title from one owner to another. Next, most sellers typically pay the owner’s title insurance premium, a wire transfer fee, document preparation fee and attorney fees if you were to have your own attorney represent you during the settlement process.

Who pays transfer tax in South Carolina

Other additional closing costs the sellers can be responsible for include unpaid homeowner association dues (and dues included up to the settlement date), any liens or judgments that are against the property and prorated property taxes. Also, depending on how the contract is written, the seller may also have to pay for termite inspection and remediation if there is an issue, as well as repair bills or a credit for potential repairs for things that may come up during a home inspection. It is important to note here that the seller’s portion of the closing costs is deducted from the amount they receive from the sale of their property.

How long does it take to sell a home in Myrtle Beach?

by Jerry Pinkas

Myrtle Beach real estate market outlook 2018

Have you been thinking of putting your Myrtle Beach, SC home on the market and find yourself wondering how long it will take for the perfect buyer to come along and purchase it? Myrtle Beach, SC is a hot destination and many people are making the move to enjoy the incredible lifestyle our wonderful city affords. But even with the influx of people, there are still many factors that attribute to how long it will take your home to sell. And as you may have guessed, that is exactly what we are going to be talking about in today’s blog post. If you or someone you know is thinking of putting their home on the market and are wondering how long it will take your home to sell, today’s blog is a can’t-miss and a must-read! 

Myrtle Beach real estate market outlook 2017

How long does it take to sell a home in Myrtle Beach, SC?

We wish there was a more cut and dry answer to this, but the time it takes to sell a condo or home in the Myrtle Beach, SC area varies from property to property. As we will discuss in more detail below, there are multiple factors that can affect the selling time of your home or condo, and it is nearly impossible to accurately predict it prior to listing the property for sale. You may think that you have the best house in the neighborhood with the most updated finishes and overall the hottest listing, but if the right qualified buyer does not come along right away you could be waiting a few weeks or months to sell. While it helps to have a property that hits everything buyers are looking for, it is difficult to predict exactly how long it will take to actually close the sale.

What factors contribute to how long it can take for my home to sell in Myrtle Beach, SC?

As we touched on above, there are many things that go in to and can affect the selling time of your condo or home in Myrtle Beach, SC. There are two main variables that can affect the selling time of the property the most, and the first one we are going to be talking about is how the property is priced. We all know that if a home or condo is listed below what it should be, buyers think they are getting a smoking deal and the listing is more likely to sell quickly. On the other hand, if a home or condo is listed above what it should be, buyers are usually less inclined to purchase the property because they think they can get more for their money with another property. Overpricing your property is a sure way to have your listing sit on the market longer than you may want and increase the time it takes for the home to sell.

 

A good way to avoid incorrectly pricing your property is to have a knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent by your side who can guide you in finding and settling on a competitive price for your area. Your agent should know the comps in the surrounding areas, give you advice on any renovations to do to help your home appeal to more buyers and (kindly) pull you back to reality if you feel your home is worth more than it really is. Competitively pricing your home is one of the main factors that can affect if it sells quickly to the right buyer, or sits on the market waiting for the right person to eventually come along.

The second variable that can affect the selling time of your home is how the property is marketed. Now some people may think that just listing your property online is enough to get the right buyer through the door. But, unfortunately, that is just not the case. Any agent can list a property online, but it takes the right educated and knowledgeable agent to know exactly how to market the property and get as many eyeballs on the home as possible. Because, as we all know, the more eyeballs on the property mean a greater chance of the property selling fast, and to the right qualified buyer. Especially in today’s day and age with social media and social networking, there are so many different ways and varying outlets to get your property out there. And the harsh reality is that if you do not take advantage of these marketing platforms, someone else will and their property can potentially take away good, qualified buyers leaving your home to sit on the market longer than you may like.

How to sell your Myrtle Beach home

What can I do to help my Myrtle Beach, SC home sell faster?

There are a few key things you can do to help your Myrtle Beach, SC home sell more quickly. The first, and most important, is to have a good real estate agent by your side. We have talked about this in many previous posts, but that goes to show just how important it is and how much it can impact your success. Your real estate agent should be knowledgeable about your area, have a proven track record of success and willing to work hard to help you sell your home. Also, as we spoke about above, your real estate agent should be able to recommend any renovations that should be completed prior to listing your home. This will help to ensure buyers see a livable space and not a large, overwhelming renovation project.

How to sell your Myrtle Beach home

Another way to help your property sell quicker is to make it appeal to potential buyers by staging your home. One of the first things you want to do is DE clutter the space. This is a great excuse to go through your belongings and give away/throw out items that you no longer need, and is also a great way to ensure you are not moving and hauling things to your next home that you do not need. You also want to remove any personal items such as photographs throughout the home. Why is this necessary? It helps the potential buyer to see a blank canvas that they can turn into their own home, instead of feeling like they are walking through yours. Be sure to organize furniture in a way that opens the space, not closes it, and keep the spaces organized and tidy at all times as you never know when a showing may pop up.

Why do some Myrtle Beach properties expire or fail to sell?

by Jerry Pinkas

how long after a real estate contract expires can an owner sell privately

It’s a classic scenario: family gets excited to sell their house, the family finds and hires the first realtor they see online, realtor says he/she will sell their house quickly and for top dollar, the house sits on the market for months, contract with realtor expires, house fails to sell. Has this scenario played out for you or someone you know? Do you ever find yourself wondering why some houses sell quickly and for top dollar, while other comparable houses sit on the market for weeks and weeks and do not sell? Well, as you may have guessed by now, that is exactly what we are going to be talking about in today’s blog post. We are going to be discussing why properties expire or fail to sell, and what you can do if you or someone you know finds themselves in this scenario in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC.

what happens when a real estate contract expires

What does it mean if a property listing expires?

Before we jump into the meat and potatoes of today’s post, we first wanted to cover some basics. What does it mean if a property listing expires? It means that the property has not been sold by the end of the time period stipulated in the listing contract that was set and agreed upon between the listing real estate agent and the seller. In our blog posts, we talk quite frequently about how important it is to have a good real estate agent by your side from beginning to end. And this is another reason why it is so crucial for you to do your homework on who you are locking arms with and trusting to sell your home. The time period set in the listing contract can go by very quickly if you are not working with the right person who is educated and driven, and working day in and day out to find the right buyer for your home.

How long do I have to wait to sell my Myrtle Beach home?

What are the main reasons why properties expire or fail to sell?

There are a few main reasons why properties expire or fail to sell, and the first one we are going to touch on is the price. Overpriced homes are the number one reason why homes fail to sell, and unfortunately is one of the biggest deterrents to buyers and having a successful transaction. The price may have been set by an overzealous real estate agent, or simply because the owner believes their home to be worth more than it actually is. But it is important to understand that even the most talented agent and sophisticated marketing tactics will have a very difficult time bringing an eager buyer to the table with a home that is priced beyond what it should be. The listing will be doomed to begin with and all the advertising and marketing used to promote the property will prove to be fruitless, along with a lot of wasted energy and time. So settling the right price on the property from the beginning is crucial. 

The next reason why properties expire or fail to sell can arise from picking the wrong realtor to help sell your house/condo. Again, we have covered this topic numerous times throughout different blog posts because it is vital to understand when looking to sell your home. And we realize how tricky it can seem to find and hire on the right realtor that is going to work hard in your best interest from beginning to end. But choosing the right agent can mean selling your house quickly and for top dollar, and choosing the wrong agent can mean a lot of wasted time and energy, as well as your property still not sold once the contract with the agent is up. Which scenario would you rather have?

 

At this point, you may be asking yourself how do you know if you are picking the right real estate. And one way you can be confident in your decision is asking the realtor for a list of reviews from past clients they have worked with. This will help you be able to get a feel for how the agent works and what other people, who are just like you, have experienced with this realtor. You also want to look for a few key characteristics in the agent such as honesty and dedication, as well as the success rate of the agent on selling homes, how large their network is and how well they know the area. Do not get fooled by agents that tell you things because they know you want to hear them – make sure you are doing your homework to ensure that the agent is someone that you will be successful with.

Lastly, poor real estate marketing can attribute to a property expiring or failing to sell. This goes back to what we just talked about with finding the right real estate agent. If your property does not get the proper marketing and attention it deserves, it is not going to get in front of the right people to buy it. It is easy to just upload the listing online, but the right realtor will really know how to push and market the property so it is appealing and alluring to other buyer agents and potential buyers. Things that should be standard in this regard include incredible photography of the property, stunning video tours, and detailed descriptions that highlight the home’s best features.

Real Estate commissions after the listing has expired

What should I do if my listing has expired or failed to sell?

When you want to list your property, ideally, you would start by calling our experienced team here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts to avoid your property expiring or failing to sell with other agents. However, if you find yourself in a situation where you have tried to sell your home with one, two or even three real estate agents who could not seem to get the job done, you have come to the right place! Our team has had amazing success with people just like you, and we have sold their home or condo not only in a shorter time frame than it was on the market when it expired but also for top dollar.

How do we do it you ask? Well, here at Jerry Pinkas Realty, we utilize tools such as the Cash Offer Program and The Guaranteed Results Program, which allow us to get more buyers through your home and ultimately create more demand for your property. And as we all know, the more people that walk through and the more eyes that are on your home, the quicker it sells and more money is able to be put in your pocket! Additionally, we are the only real estate team in the Myrtle Beach, SC area that offers The Platinum Marketing Program.

Myrtle Beach real estate market outlook 2018

It is important to understand that there are three types of buyers that will potentially purchase your home or condo. They consist of in-town residents, out of town buyers, and buyers that are already working with other real estate agents. In order to get the best offer on your home, you need to make sure you are marketing on every level, especially to all of these buyers. Here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts, we guarantee to market your property for more, and in more places, as our media sources have proven to advertise properties efficiently and aggressively to a large number of qualified buyers. Our goal is to get your home sold for the most amount of money, in the shortest amount of time and with the least amount of hassle.

Are properties selling in Myrtle Beach?

by Jerry Pinkas

Recently Sold Homes in Myrtle Beach SC

The secret is out about Myrtle Beach, SC. People have their eyes on the area for many reasons, and there is no denying that many couples, families and even retirees are relocating here to live the enviable lifestyle that this beautiful area affords. If you are a homeowner and wondering if houses are selling in this area, today’s blog post is for you! It can be tricky trying to understand the trends and what the market is doing, but we hope that this post will give you a little insight to how and why properties are selling in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC.

What factors contribute to properties selling fast in Myrtle Beach, SC?

There are many factors that contribute to whether or not a house sells fast or sits on the market for a while. The first factor we are going to talk about is the property itself. If the house or condo is located in a great part of town, priced right, newly renovated and has all the bells and whistles buyers are looking for, then naturally the property will appeal to many buyers and will most likely sell quickly. On the other hand, if the house or condo is located in a less desirable part of town, is priced too high, has outdated appliances, doors missing and the roof is about to collapse, naturally, it may take a little longer for the right buyer to come along to take on the project. With properties like this, many buyers see a huge renovation, a large price tag and a lot of time spent having to update the property. Which is not to say that the property will not sell if it is in that condition, but again, the right buyer will have to come along to see the potential of the property.

The second factor that can contribute to a property selling fast or not is the real estate agent. Some people think that all real estate agents do is list the property online, do one showing and the property magically sells for top dollar. In reality, there is so much that an agent does behind the scenes to prep, market and sell the property that many people do not realize. So if you are working with a real estate agent that does not know how to properly market the house/condo, does not have a strong network and is not skilled at negotiating on their client’s behalf, then you may have a more difficult time not only selling your property but getting the price you want. You also have to make sure that your real estate agent is working in your best interest and keeps your listing as a priority amongst their other listings.

And as we spoke about above, your real estate agent will be able to give you advice and guide you on what improvements and renovations should be done to the house for it to sell at top dollar. As a homeowner, you may think that your property is perfect and that any person walking in off the street and want to purchase it. But the right agent will come in with the skills and knowledge of the market and what buyers are looking for to help you determine what improvements are worth spending the money on and what can be skipped. So having a strong, honest and skilled agent by your side can make all the difference in your selling experience.

 

What time of the year is the best to sell in Myrtle Beach?

Simply put, the best time to sell in Myrtle Beach, SC is during the summer. Why the summer you ask? The summer months are the most popular time for people to visit the area. With summer break, the warm temperatures and glistening beaches, it is no wonder that Myrtle Beach is a popular destination for many people from across the country. And with so many people visiting, they will be able to look at properties to purchase either as a second home or to relocate to altogether. Now don’t get us wrong, the spring, fall, and winter are good times to sell too, but if you are looking to get top dollar, the summer months may just be your best bet.

Myrtle Beach Real Estate Market

Why is Myrtle Beach, SC such a popular destination?

How much time do you have for us to answer this question? Myrtle Beach, SC is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. With over sixty miles of stunning uninterrupted coastline, residents are spoiled year round with incredible beaches and a lifestyle many only dream of.

Now we are sure that everyone is familiar with how demand works. Especially in relation to real estate, the more people you have looking and wanting to purchase homes, the faster the inventory goes and the stronger the housing market is.
