Best investment property in Myrtle Beach

Have you been toying with the idea of purchasing a rental property in Myrtle Beach, SC, but you are not sure if it is a good investment? Or maybe you currently own a rental property in the area and are looking for different ways to increase your income on a monthly basis. We see these scenarios quite frequently.

A question we get asked all the time here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts is, “Can you really make money with a second property or a condo on the beach?” And our answer is, simply put, absolutely YES! In today’s blog post we are going to be talking about different strategies and ways you can make money on these properties, or increase your revenue if you are currently renting the unit place out. We hope these tips and tricks help point you in the right direction with your rental property and allow you to start increasing your cash flow!  

How to increase your rental income

What are the perks of having a rental property?

As you can imagine, owning a rental property in Myrtle Beach, SC has many perks and advantages. The first one we want to talk about is what motivates most people and pushes them to make the investment. That’s right, we are talking about money. It is no secret that Myrtle Beach, SC is a great and very popular destination for many vacationers throughout the year. The stunning and glistening beaches of the Grand Strand attracts people from across the nation. Because of this, and if you are smart with marketing your unit, you should have no problem securing renters day after day, week after week and month after month. This leads to great rental income that goes right into your pocket.

And if you live out of state and are purchasing a rental property in Myrtle Beach, SC, it is like having other people pay for you to have a second home on the beach. The best part about having a rental property is that you get to set when you want the unit to be rented. And if you wake up one day and decide you want to take the family on a vacation to the beach, and you have had enough rental income to cover the costs of the place for that month, it is like your personal piece of paradise for free. Does it really get better than that? We think not. 

How can I maximize my rental income each month?

It is important to understand that there are multiple ways to make money with these rental units, and a lot of people are using these properties to create multiple streams of income for themselves and their families Now you may be asking yourself if it is possible to run a rental unit and still keep your nine to five. And we are happy to say that, yes, you can absolutely do both! So don’t go quitting your day job because it is very feasible for you to keep working and be generating additional money through your rental property in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC. 

We want you to expand your mind and think about this with us for a second, as there are multiple ways to acquire bookings and make the rental world work for you. And one of those ways is to put your unit on a rental program or website where the company rents it out by the night, by the week or by the month for you. And while this is great because it takes a lot of the work off your hands, you are also going to find yourself sharing a large part of your profits with that company. But lucky for you, we have others options!

There is another formula that can give you a greater return on your investment, and that is the Airbnb or VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) formula. With these options, while you are involved in the process a bit more as you are responsible for listing your property on these sites, it can be worth it for you monetarily in the end as you collect one hundred percent of the rental income that is generated. This will help with your bottom line and help put money directly into your pocket.

Myrtle Beach investment opportunities

Why are these sites a good idea for me to utilize?

Something to really think about when it comes to rental properties and sites such as Airbnb and VRBO is our location. As we touched on earlier, we are in an area where people vacation and are looking to rent all the time. We have cleaning people, we have plumbers and services like these readily available. When you are renting by the night, week or month, you are getting direct income that allows you to hire on people to do the dirty work for you in terms of cleaning and repairing the unit. We have many clients who are doing this as a second income and they are banking money month after month. They are coordinating all this on their phone via text, email, sending reservations back and forth, answering questions, etc. We even have clients that are doing this at work at their day job, and some that do it at nights or on the weekends. But just by coordinating everything yourself, you get one hundred percent of the money, which is a great way to generate income and greater returns on your investment.

Buying a condo in Myrtle Beach is it a good investment 2017?

How can I set my unit apart from other rentals in the area?

You may be asking yourself how you can acquire renters when there are other competing units, possibly in your same building, that are also listed on these sites. An aspect you may want to consider is something as simple as TV’s. What if all the units in your building had a 32-inch TV, but your unit had a 60-inch, flat screen TV. Would it cost you THAT much more money? Probably not. But would it set you apart and make your listing stand out from the other units? Definitely. With not that much of an investment, you can make a greater return. If someone is already set on staying in your area or condo building, they may be more inclined to pick the listing with the bigger TV or the better amenities. What we are trying to say here is that all the little things add up, so if you are able to make small improvements to your unit it could end up meaning more bookings, and therefore more profit. And again, all that money goes to your bottom line.

Myrtle Beach Bank Owned Condos and Houses

by Jerry Pinkas


myrtle beach foreclosures and short sales

As you can see from the title, in today’s blog post we are going to be talking about bank owned condos and houses in Myrtle Beach. There are a lot of questions surrounding this topic, and we hope to answer some of these in hopes to show you the many benefits that can come from purchasing a bank owned property. It is always good to keep your options open when starting the search for a new home in Myrtle Beach, and we hope we can shed some light and help you make a decision if these properties are the right fit for you and your family.

Bank Foreclosed Properties in Myrtle Beach

What does it mean if a condo or house is ‘bank owned?”

When a condo or house is bank owned, it means that the bank has foreclosed on the property. This means that the owner of the condo or home defaulted on the loan, leading to legal actions and proceedings from the bank against the owner to seize the property in repayment of the mortgage debt. There are also other times where the borrower will give the bank the deed for the condo or home in lieu of proceeding with a foreclosure, which is referred to as dation. The bank will sometimes accommodate this request from the borrower if they find that there is sufficient equity in the property in hopes to avoid a large loss for the bank.

Are bank owned condos and houses a good investment?

These properties have the potential to be incredible investments! For one, many banks are looking to get these condos and homes off their backs. This affords you the opportunity to snag a property in Myrtle Beach (potentially) under market value! And if you are to do any repairs or upgrades, this will make the condo or home worth more if you ever decide to sell it in the future: cha-ching! And with the secret of Myrtle Beach out, the area has become such a desirable location for residents and visitors, and you should therefore not have much trouble finding an eager buyer who wants to enjoy the many benefits South Carolina has to offer.

On that topic, bank owned houses and condos can also be a great investment property. Buyers can potentially purchase the property at a lower price, making the barrier to entry in the investment property market fairly low. And again, with Myrtle Beach being such a desirable location within the country (what, with incredible beaches, weather, shopping, dining, entertainment…. Okay we will stop bragging now) you will always have someone interested in renting the property – whether it be a full time rental or more sporadic with out of town visitors. Either way, bank owned condos and homes have the potential to become incredible investment properties for those interested.

What are the benefits of purchasing a bank owned condo or house?

There are many benefits that can come from purchasing a condo or house that is bank owned. As we spoke about earlier, one of them is price. Banks are usually wanting to get the seized properties off their books quickly, which can prove to be a huge benefit for you as they have the potential to come down drastically in price. Is there a neighborhood or part of town that you have been dreaming to live in but simple can not afford? Would you love to live near the glistening Myrtle Beach water but the price tag is too hefty for your budget? Or maybe you are just looking for more square footage for your growing family. We see these all the time from clients.

Well luckily for you there is a potential for a bank owned property to be available in these neighborhoods or parts of town that can check off everything on your wish list and fall in your ideal price range. What we are trying to say is that bank owned condos or homes give people options. A property that would, under normal circumstances, be completely out of your search criteria all of a sudden becomes tangible for you and your family.

Another benefit to a bank owned property is the potential to customize the home or condo to your taste and preference if you plan on doing any repairs or upgrades to the property. Since some of these properties need a little tender loving care, you are able to pick out things such as paint color, finishes, flooring and window treatments. It gives you an excuse to make the home your perfect sanctuary and have things just the way you want them. And while some people may only see a hefty price tag with these improvements, we tend to look at the glass half full and think of it as a terrific opportunity. Also, you probably were able to get the condo or home at a lower price which leaves some funds to put towards these projects. It truly is a win-win! 


Are there any cons of purchasing a bank owned condo or house?

As with most things in life, with the good comes potential for some drawback. When it comes to buying a condo or house that is bank owned there are some things that we want you to keep in mind. Because bank owned properties always have the potential of being vacant for some time before new owners move in, the home may need some repairs. Things such as new paint, pipes and air conditioners may need to be purchased and installed. And with that comes the potential for costly bills with your name on them. On the flip side, as we mentioned earlier, this can also be a fun way for you to put your own touch on the property to make it reflect your taste.

Bank Owned Condos and Houses of Myrtle Beach

Prior to closing, it may be a good ideal to hire a trusted inspector to ensure there are no surprises after you close on the condo or home. You can also make the contract “contingent” for a few days or at least until you are able to get an inspector out to survey the property. And while the bank more than likely will not fix anything that needs to be repaired, again it alleviates any large potential surprises, and also may give you a little negotiating power in the deal. We want to make sure that you do not let the excitement of purchasing a home overshadow the due diligence and inspections that may need to be done. Our team is here to guide you and think of the things that you may not have. And we are happy to do it!

What should I do if I am interested in purchasing a bank owned condo or house?

We hope this blog gave you a little more insight into the world of bank owned condos and houses, but we are sure that you more than likely still have some lingering questions, or questions that were sparked from this post. That is where we come in! Call our experienced team here at Jerry Pinkas Reality to answer any questions you have and help figure out if purchasing a bank owned condo or house is the best route for you and your family. We have helped many people go through the process of purchasing properties that are owned by the bank and we are confident we can do the same for you. We are looking forward to hearing from you today!

Myrtle Beach Townhouses Myrtle Beach Townhomes

by Jerry Pinkas


Myrtle Beach SC Townhomes and Townhouses for Sale

What is a townhome and why should I be interested in purchasing one?

By definition, a townhouse is a multi-story home that is attached to one or more similar houses by conjoining walls. These homes are usually found in more modern housing developments and are the perfect place for you and your family to call home in Myrtle Beach! Individuals and families alike purchase townhomes for a myriad of reasons, some of these include being part of a close knit community, the lower cost of townhomes compared to detached single-family homes, the style of the homes themselves, lower utility bills and having less property to maintain. These, and many others, are a few reasons why many people are looking more towards a townhome in the search for their perfect home.

townhouses for sale in myrtle beach sc

Townhomes in Myrtle Beach range in price, but many start under $100,000 and range into the $300,000’s depending of course on location, size and desirability. Many townhomes have two to five bedrooms with one to four baths, and offer buyers spacious living areas, as well as many upgrades such as Plantation Shudders throughout the homes, upgraded kitchen appliances and lots of cabinet and closet space. There are some townhomes in Myrtle Beach that also have a screened in porch, which are perfect to spend summer nights on overlooking a lake, sharing memories with families and friends and taking in the sights of local wildlife.

One aspect we want to point out is that you are not necessarily compromising on space when you look to purchase a townhome. While the setup may be different than traditional houses, many units are the ideal size for families. Many of the townhouses also have spacious living and dining areas, so you will not be pressed for space when entertaining. Also, the different levels of the townhome also give you more living area and a unique home layout.

Buyers will also be pleased to find a variety of styles, including many quaint brick townhomes, that bring a very charming and homey feel to the neighborhood. You will also find many distinctive, colorful townhouses in the Myrtle Beach area that bring a little life to the area. And in terms of location, buyers will also be pleased to see that many of these homes are desirably located near the water, as well as many shopping, dining and entertainment options in Myrtle Beach.

What is the difference between a townhome and a condo?

We wanted to be sure to touch on this topic as to avoid any confusion when we say “townhomes,” as there is some overlap in the two, but they are still different from one another. A condo is a building containing units which are individually owned, and townhomes, while also individually owned, are similar architecturally to row houses where the owners share at least one or more walls. When it comes to size, condos are usually smaller than townhomes, which can feature multiple stores and be quite large in comparison.

Another difference in townhomes and condos is the HOA fees. Condo owners usually pay higher HOA fees, as they go towards exterior upkeep such as removal of trash, pest control, pools and lawn care. Townhouse owners often have a lower monthly HOA fee as they are responsible for much of their own upkeep out of their own pocket. The last difference we want to bring to your attention is the ownership of a condo versus a townhouse. Owners of condos only own their individual, interior unit of the building and all other areas including community areas, lawns, etc. are owned by the owners of the building. On the other hand, the exterior, interiors, lawn, driveway and roof are all property of the townhouse owner.

Benefits of a Myrtle Beach SC Townhome

What are the benefits of buying a townhome in Myrtle Beach?

There are many incredible benefits of purchasing a townhome in Myrtle Beach, the first one being the initial cost of purchasing one. We generally see townhomes as a much more affordable option for families looking to purchase a home, and they are also a wonderful way for first time homebuyers to establish equity. If you are in love with a certain area of Myrtle Beach but the single family homes are out of your price range, a townhome is a great alternative for you. It not only affords you the option to live in your ideal area, but it allows you to enjoy the many benefits of a home while avoiding a hefty monthly mortgage and going over budget in the search for a detached, single family home.

Another great benefit of purchasing a townhome is the amenities. Often times the community will provide tennis courts, pools, a community center and park areas, among other attractions. There are some townhome communities in Myrtle Beach that are very luxurious with impeccable lawns, local recreation and even some with ponds and water fountains to gaze at. And since many townhome communities have some sort of an association, you can be assured that these areas will be well maintained for a relatively small fee and not much work from your end.

Utility expenses are another incredible benefit of buying a townhouse, as most structures are relatively compact and at least one wall of the home is shared with a neighbor. This is a big help when it comes to utility bills, especially with things such as cooling and heating, which are usually much cheaper when buyers go with a townhome. While savings like this tend to not be taken into account, it is a very important aspect that can end up making a big difference for you and your family over time. And again, most of the townhome communities have associations, which is another helpful aspect to buyers as they help to keep the community organized and everyone accountable. You can rest assured that the community will be well maintained and any pesky neighbors will be kept in line.

Myrtle Beach townhouse rentals

Are Townhomes in Myrtle Beach a good rental property?

If you are looking to purchase a rental property in Myrtle Beach, a townhome is a great option for you! As we spoke about earlier, one of the main benefits is that most of these properties are less expensive to purchase initailly compared to a detached home, so the barrier to entry in the rental market with these homes are fairly low depending on the neighborhood. And since your mortgage has the potential to be on the lower end, you would not have to charge renters as much to cover your expenses every month, which in turn would draw in more potential occupants and ensure the property is always rented out.

Also, townhomes are very appealing when it comes to renters as they offer many of the amenities of a detached home, such as space, full kitchen, garage and laundry, without having to pay a heftier price. And seeing as how many townhouses have Home Owners Associations, you can be assured that the common areas will always be kept up, leaving less work and worry for you.

houses for 100k near me

Are Condos that cost $100,000 a good investment?

Absolutely! There are many perks to purchasing a Condo at the $100,000 price point. One of them being that you will have to put less money down up front in comparison to a higher priced Condo, as well as taking on a lower monthly mortgage. Imagine what you would do with extra money each month that was not going into your mortgage but instead in your own pocket. Oh the possibilities! You will also be able to pay off the Condo in a shorter amount of time. And with Myrtle Beach such a hot market right now and so many people flocking here to live or just vacation, you can be confident in the value of your purchase. 

Myrtle Beach SC Condos for $100,000

Many of the Condo’s priced at $100,000 in Myrtle Beach are beautiful and have been fully remodeled. Many units have upgrades including granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and are located in ideal locations. There are some units that are located within a resort and offer amenities such as pools, incredible gyms, indoor lazy rivers and, in some unique cases, even a bowling alley! There are many amazing features that make these units even more appealing and offer endless fun for the whole family! And how would you like to wake up overlooking the pools with sparkling ocean views? There are units at the $100,000 price point that have incredible views and are centrally located near incredible dining, shopping and entertainment options for the family. 

Do Condos that cost $100,000 make for good rental properties?

They don’t just make good rental properties – they make incredible rental properties! For a couple reasons. The first reason may be a little obvious and one we just spoke about, but buyers do not have to break the bank to purchase Condo. Purchasing a Condo around the $100,000 price point allows less barrier to entry in the rental property space, as you do not have to put a lot of money down. Your mortgage should also be relatively low compared to higher priced Condos in Myrtle Beach, making it easier to cover it every month with renters.

Another reason $100,000 Condos in the area are a good investment is that they are low maintenance. Many of the Condo’s are not incredibly large, therefore the upkeep and cleaning is not overbearing or too tedious, which is great if you are to have different visitors each week. And if the Condo has an HOA (Homeowners Association), most of the time those fees will go to cover maintenance of the building such as common spaces, pools and landscaping, as well as insurance on the building. In come cases, cable and internet are included as well. This is a huge bonus because you will not have to worry about maintenance if you are not in town.

Rental Condos Myrtle Beach

To help maximize the unit as a rental property, you can utilize pull out sofa beds or even wall beds to sleep larger families. This is a great and relatively inexpensive way to accommodate parities of all sizes, while also broadening the reach of potential renters. It is also a great way to save space while also providing additional lodging, which is very appealing to people looking to rent the unit. We have seen beautiful, smaller one bedroom units that can sleep up to eight people. And when you are that close to the stunning beaches of Myrtle Beach, lets be honest - many people probably won’t be spending much time indoors anyway! 

Waterfront Condos Myrtle Beach

With Myrtle Beach being such a sought after area for people around the country, buyers should not have a problem with renting the Condo out. Being a desireable location, here is so much demand with visitors to the area that need a place to stay, and many like the comfort of being able to settle into a Condo that features a kitchen, upgrades and utilize the amenities - especially if they are staying for long periods of time. With spring and summer not too far off, now is a great time to start looking into these Condo’s as rental properties to get a jump start and be prepared for the busy season. 

Lastly, lets talk about everyone’s favorite part – potential rental income! Our team at Jerry Pinkas Reality have seen some of these incredible units bring in over $32,000 per year in rental income. Incredible right?! Needless to say, utilizing these units priced at $100,000 as rental properties has the potential to bring in great revenue for you and your family, and can be a money machine for people at a relatively low initial cost.

Why Should I Not Represent Myself When Purchasing a New Home?

All of these new home communities are incredible, lets be honest. But what should you do when starting your search into some of these neighborhoods? Some people think that it is better to represent themselves when it comes to looking for and actually purchasing a home. They feel they can save money in the agent’s commissions and land more cash in their pocket at the end of the process. And while this may sound like an ideal scenario, there are a few reasons why this is not a good idea and should be avoided. When purchasing a home, buyers you should always look for an agent that has a good track record and extensive knowledge about the area. One of the main reasons you should not represent yourself is because experienced real estate teams have the inside scoop on new listings that have not hit the market yet. Our team at Jerry Pinkas Reality can take you on location to new homes that have just been listed, and even ones that are not listed yet but are set to be in the near future. This ensures that you have the cream of the crop and a variety of options to choose from when starting your house search. Talk about a competitive advantage! You are doing yourself and your family a huge disservice by only looking at houses that are listed on the internet. There are many incredible homes that sell early to excited buyers that never even made it online. Let our team help you in the search and take some of the pressure to keep up with the listings in Myrtle Beach off your back. We know what we are doing and have many happy and satisfied customers that had an incredible home buying experience!


Real estate agents will also help you ensure that you are not paying too much for a property as they know the comps in the area and how much you should be paying for the home. It is also good to have that barrier between you and the seller for negotiating purposes. Our team will always make sure that you are not overpaying for a home and see that you are not in a vulnerable position like you would be if you were to represent yourself. 

You should also never walk into a new home community by yourself. Buyers want to make sure they are accompanied by an agent who can explain and represent them in the process. There may be properties that are not being shown to the public in that community, and you can only find out about them through agents who are connected to the real estate market in Myrtle Beach. Your agent can tell you all the amenities of the area, what you should be paying for the home in comparison to other comps in the area and again help to negotiate the right price for you. Walking into a new home community in Myrtle Beach blind can prove to be extremely overwhelming and can add a lot of unneeded and unintended stress to the buying process. Let our team at Jerry Pinkas Reality walk you through these new home communities and show you all the benefits these properties can afford you and your family in Myrtle Beach!

No HOA Fees Myrtle Beach

by Jerry Pinkas

no hoa homes for sale myrtle beach sc











Why is it common for Myrtle Beach home buyers to look for little or no HOA fees?

When purchasing a home in Myrtle Beach, it is no secret that there are a lot of factors to consider when starting your search. Items such as lot size, neighborhood and proximity to schools, work and family/friends tend to be of higher priority when the search begins. Another important item that a lot of buyers look for, and sometimes will divert them from their perfect home, is HOA fees.

It is common for townhomes and condos in Myrtle Beach to have HOA fees, but you will also see many neighborhoods and subdivisions that require these fees as well. A common request we see from buyers when starting their search in the area is for the property to have little or no HOA fees, as they assume it is just an additional monthly cost for them to incur.  What many buyers don’t realize is what you get for your money and how the benefits have the potential to outweigh the cost for you and your family. It is essential to take into account what is important to you, what you can afford and everything that is included within the dues when purchasing a property with HOA fees. 

Let us give you a relatable real life example: image you just purchased your dream home in Myrtle Beach (YES!). What expenses do you have for that home? Electric? Water? Cable? Internet? Insurance? Chances are you will have most of those bills, and probably a few more. Now what if we told you that your HOA fee potentially covered all those monthly bills for you? Do I have your attention yet?

Many HOA fees cover those expenses and much more (we will touch more on this below). It is also very important to consider what is involved in those fees, and unfortunately, a lot of that information is either not provided or not easily accessible online for home buyers. It is therefore difficult to distinguish what is covered and not covered in those HOA fees. This is where the Jerry Pinkas Reality Team comes in. We can help you figure out exactly what the fees are and exactly what is included to help you decide if it is worth the cost for you and if it could benefit your family. We also help you avoid the ones that you should stay away from. Our team wants to help you avoid the pitfalls that a lot of people fall into when it comes to HOA fees in hopes to make the home buying process as seamless and painless as possible.

What are the benefits of having HOA fees in Myrtle Beach?

As stated above, when buying a home in Myrtle Beach, some buyers may be cautious of purchasing (and even looking at) properties that have HOA fees as they think it is just another monthly expense. Others may see HOA’s as a pain and slightly restricting because they have the ability to control things such as the type of mailbox you can have on your property or the color that you paint the exterior of your home.  But what many buyers don’t understand is the larger picture and how these regulations can actually often protect the value of your home. There are also many other ways in which HOA fees can actually benefit and work in your favor and we have listed a few below for you to review.

No matter the property, there is always some type of maintenance required to keep up the appearance and functionality of the home. And if you have ever owned a home, you have probably come to know and appreciate the amount of money spent on this type of maintenance. A benefit to HOA fees is that the dues cover the upkeep of the property, and therefore the homeowner doesn’t have to worry about putting the time or money into maintenance. It can cover things such as pools, elevators, accounting, security and all exterior maintenance. This is a huge relief and perk for homeowners in Myrtle Beach because you own the space, but don’t have to take on the burden or worry of managing the property. That’s what we call a WIN-WIN!

Another advantage to HOA fees is insurance coverage, as many condo fees cover the insurance of the building, including liability and hazard insurance. This is great for owners as it is one less thing for them to worry about each month. HOA fees also usually cover property updates, which gives buyers a peace of mind knowing that their property will continue to be updated and stay in good shape. The fees usually go towards a reserve account which is used for potential improvements, as well as to cover damage from unexpected events that may not be planned for in the budget. For example, if a large storm rolled through Myrtle Beach and damaged the roofing, the reserve money would go to repair this and the owner would not need to worry about it. It could also end up saving them money in the future.

Amenities are another benefit and probably one of the most appealing benefits of HOA fees for Myrtle Beach home buyers. Select communities offer conveniences such as gyms, basketball and tennis courts, swimming pools, and clubhouses that are paid for and maintained through HOA fees, and offer additional entertainment that compensates for the cost of the fees. Lastly, and arguably the most important, benefit of HOA fees is that they can help protect the property value of the home by enforcing certain restrictions on residents. Some of these include restricting your neighbor from painting their house a bright, unconventional color and ensuring properties are kept up to avoid them becoming eye sores, just to name a few. This allows for homeowners to have confidence that their property will retain its value, and they can also voice their options on community updates and changes by participating in HOA meetings.

What is covered in a Condominium HOA fee in Myrtle Beach? 

Condo HOA fees are usually paid either monthly or quarterly to the condo buildings governing homeowner association, which is comprised of local residents that uphold the rules of the condo. These rules are not meant to be irritating for residents, but rather are intended to upkeep the value and appearance of the buildings, as the fees residents submit are used to pay for necessary maintenance around the building.

One of the main uses for HOA fees include typical maintenance items for Myrtle Beach condos. A few that are covered by HOA fees include upkeep of common areas such as lobbies, clubhouses and elevators, lawn and landscaping care, swimming pool maintenance and trash removal.  Pretty much anything outside the walls of your unit, which you are responsible for on your own, are under the watch of the homeowner’s association. This is great for individuals who don’t have time to constantly maintain their condo or for someone who purchased the condo as a second home or rental property, as you can also ensure the property will look good while you are away.

Additionally, many condo fees conveniently include insurance on the building. Other items that are covered under a condominium HOA fee include special assessments (which are usually for older condo buildings) and master insurance policy, which goes towards the master insurance of the entire condo building. Owners may (and typically do) get their own insurance for their unit and their belongings, but the master insurance policy typically covers incidences such as storm damage, fire and liability of the property.

What is covered in a single-family HOA fee in Myrtle Beach?

HOA fees for single-family homes are usually paid monthly, and these developments are traditionally the typical suburban neighborhood with stand-alone homes. HOA fees for neighborhood maintenance usually include areas such as recreational spaces, parks, playgrounds, parking lots, community swimming pools, sidewalks and gyms.

Moving To Myrtle Beach? Don't Make This Mistake!

by Jerry Pinkas

Moving to Myrtle Beach South Carolina


Oh the anticipation! What mistake should I avoid when moving to Myrtle Beach?

So you recently moved to Myrtle Beach and are settling into your new home and enjoying the good life and everything beautiful South Carolina has to offer. The kitchen appliances have all found a home, your closet is meticulously organized, the wall art is hung and the last of the moving boxes have been recycled. You think you checked everything off your mile long moving list and are starting to feel some calm and peace in your day to day life. Sound familiar?


What most new residents to Myrtle Beach don’t realize is there is still one important lingering item that needs to be completed- and soon! Can you think of it? We'll give you a hint: You need to change your vehicle tags to South Carolina! Many people don’t think about putting it on their list or moreover, if they do rememeber, they don’t think its an important task to complete after they move here.

What some individuals don’t realize is that new residents have 30 days after they first move to the state to change their tags. There are some avoidable repercussions if you don’t, and The Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Team wants to make sure that you don’t make this mistake when moving to Myrtle Beach. Sound like a daunting task? Worry not, as we have all the information you will possibly need (and maybe a little more) on how to update your vehicle tags to reflect your beautiful and vibrant new home in the stunning state of South Carolina.


Updating your Tags when Moving to Myrtle Beach

Why is it important to change my tags when moving to Myrtle Beach?

There are a few reasons why it is important to update your vehicle tags after moving to Myrtle Beach. The first involves the “avoidable repercussions” that we spoke about earlier. A ticket. Yes, law officials are (and probably will) issue you a ticket if you have lived in the area more than 30 days and do not have state issued tags.

Many residents push the task aside thinking they will get away it, mainly because Myrtle Beach is a transient area filled with out of town guests and vacationers that flock here to enjoy the beautiful weather and glistening beaches. And let’s be honest, most people try to avoid the Department of Motor Vehicles like the plague due to slow moving ticket numbers resulting in long wait times. But it really isn’t worth the risk of getting a ticket if a law official finds out you actually are a resident and not just passing through the area? Our team sure doesn't think so. Especially since we laid out everything you need to do to avoid this mistake that many new residents of Myrtle Beach unfortunately fall into.  

south carolina license plate laws

The second reason residents should change their tags when moving to Myrtle Beach is actually a benefit and a should be a motivator to head directly to your local Department of Motor Vehicles. Lower taxes! Once you change your vehicle’s tags over, residents will be happy to know that their taxes here in the state of South Carolina will amount to a lot less than what other residents are paying in other states around the country. In fact, South Carolina is in the top ten states in the country with the lowest tax burden! Go SC!

And on a related note, it is also very important to update your address when moving to South Carolina on all official documents, as the state sends out essential information to the address that is documented on your license. A resident has ten days after moving to change their address with the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, and once that is complete, all driver and vehicle records will be updated simultaneously. And speaking of licenses, it is imperative for residents that move to South Carolina from another state to apply for a South Carolina license or ID. Once the resident attains their new license, it is required that they turn over their out-of-state license or ID at that time. So brush that hair and get out your favorite shirt, and head over to your local Department of Motor Vehicles for your shiny new South Carolina license!


South Carolina License Plate


What is the process of changing my tags?

We thought you would never ask! New residents of Myrtle Beach are able to register their car either by mail or in person with the South Carolina Motor Vehicle Division. Before you are able to register your car, residents must first pay the county’s vehicle property tax with the county auditor. It is very important get this done first as there is nothing worse than painfully waiting in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles only to be told you don’t have what you need and to come back. This will not only cause frustration, but also add unnecessary time to your visit. And let’s be honest, the main goal is to get in and GET OUT as soon as possible.

After paying the small tax, ensure you hold on to the original paid vehicle property tax receipt, as you will need this in the next step to register your vehicle. Residents that move to South Carolina from out-of-state after July, 1 2017 also have to pay a one-time Infrastructure Maintenance Fee (or IMF) of $250 – this is in addition to the fees applicable to the title, registration and property tax. After you have the receipts, residents of Myrtle Beach are now ready to register their vehicle.

The next step is to head to your local Department of Motor Vehicles - the address for the Department of Motor Vehicles in Myrtle Beach is 1200 21st Ave N, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. Hopefully there is a short line (or ideally, none at all!) and you can then get your in state registration and license. Starting the month that the vehicle was registered, the South Carolina car registration certificate is valid for two years.


South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles

What do I need to bring with me to transfer my out-of-state title and/or registration?

You will need to bring a few things with you the day you go for your in state tags. Be sure to check that you have ALL of the following items or you will not be able to complete the process that day:

-Registration and title payment

-$250 Infrastructure Maintenance Fee

-Liability insurance information

-The original receipt showing payment in full for the vehicle property tax

-Out-of-state vehicle title and/or registration

-Completed SCDMV Form 400 (commonly known as the Application for Certificate of Title/Registration)

-Identification | Acceptable forms include driver’s license, identification card, passport (with visa), permanent residency card or an Employment Authorization Document (or EAD).

Living part time in Myrtle Beach

What if I only live in South Carolina part of the year? Do I still need to register my vehicle?  

Good question! If you own a vacation home in Myrtle Beach and your vehicle stays at that home for six months or more of the year you need to do the following items. First, you need to complete the Statement of Vehicle Operation (SCDMV Form TI-006) and bring a minimum of one of the following to a South Carolina Division of Motor Vehicle branch:

-If you lease a home/apartment or are a homeowner in the state, and you own the vehicle, you must provide proof of one South Carolina address from the list on the SCDMV (or United States Citizen’s Checklist).

-If you are employed in South Carolina and own the vehicle, you must provide a letter from your employer confirming your employment with them.

-If you are the owner of the vehicle and are not the homeowner or person leasing the home you reside in, you must complete and bring the SCDMV Form TI-006 (or Statement of Vehicle Operation). You will also need to bring a copy of the homeowner’s valid South Carolina license or ID and the correct address, and the homeowner must visit a South Carolina Division of Motor Vehicle branch with you to complete the SCDMV Form TI-006A (or Affidavit of Vehicle Principally Garaged at South Carolina Residence).  

We hope this information helps make your transition a little smoother. Our team at Jerry Pinkas Realty want to help you avoid the common pitfalls of moving that most realtors don’t advise on. We are here to not only help you find your perfect home, but help make the moving process as seamless as possible.

Tiny Houses For Sale Myrtle Beach

by Jerry Pinkas

Tiny Homes for Sale Myrtle Beach SC

What is the Tiny House Movement?

It’s official - the country is currently in a love affair with tiny houses. We are seeing more and more people in Myrtle Beach realizing and appreciating the idea that small is beautiful and often more realistic for their budgets and lifestyles. Tiny houses are a growing trend and gaining popularity with young families, retirees and visitors looking for a second home in this beautiful city, and the homes vary in location, size and style. There are a range of communities in Myrtle Beach that offer great options, including bright, colorful beach homes that are perfectly situated on or near the water. These quaint and charming homes provide an affordable alternative for families and allow them to simplify their life, while still enjoying all the beauty Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas have to offer. And being located in the heart of the Grand Strand with some of the best coastal and beach properties in the country, Myrtle Beach is an ideal place for any family to settle into. 

If you were to take a drive around many new neighborhoods in Myrtle Beach, chances are you will discover street after street, row after row of large homes that have the same design, hues and landscaping. While beautiful, many look like they came straight off an assembly line and landed straight on the cul-de-sac. Ironically enough, smaller families are often the ones who occupy these homes, scattering every family member into different rooms in different parts of the house, thus limiting quality interaction and family time. You will even find smaller homes being town down in older neighborhoods around town in an effort to erect these enormous, cookie cutter homes. But with these large homes comes large mortgages, energy and electrics bills and overall cost of living. Many families in Myrtle Beach are realizing that bigger isn’t always better and are looking into smaller homes to settle into, on average around 900-1,200 square feet. The attractive characteristics of living smaller far outweigh any drawbacks for many in South Carolina, and here we are with a tiny house movement. We hope this blog opens your mind to the perks of living small and why it could prove to be a beneficial move for you and your family.


Why are People Going Tiny Houses?

Why Are People Going Tiny?

Needless to say that people are infatuated and excited with this new concept. But why has this trend popped up and caught fire so fast, especially in Myrtle Beach? And why are many American’s moving away from the average 2,300 square foot homes? For a few reasons really. Have you ever felt tied down with your mortgage? Felt you are surrounded by useless items you never use? Enter tiny homes. The idea of a home that people can buy, pay off relatively quickly, and customize down to the smallest detail, is very attractive in comparison to the traditional home. The financial and emotional freedom that tiny homes afford are why so many people are making such a drastic change in their life. And with Myrtle Beach being recongized as one of the top retirement towns in the country, many retirees are flocking here to start the next chapter of their life and also looking to downsize and simplify their life. And what better way to lower square footage and live comfortably in retirement then purchasing a tiny home?  


Smaller homes may be better after all!

What are the Pros and Cons of Tiny Living?

There are many positive aspects to families transitioning to smaller homes, one of them being that smaller houses are often much more energy efficient than a traditional home due to less square feet to cool and heat. Home owners also have less cleaning and maintenance to worry about because less rooms equals less mess! This leaves more time for individuals and families in Myrtle Beach to do more of what they love and spend quality time making beautiful memories. It also gives people the chance to start over with a fresh perspective by purge their unneeded possessions and get ‘back to the basics.’

There is also an understated coziness and intimate feeling when you enter a tiny home, which is very welcoming to guests and something that larger homes often lack. And if you are looking for something unique to call home, something different from the norm of ‘regular’ homes, tiny houses are definitely everything you are looking for! Lastly, and arguably the most important, tiny homes are just downright less expensive. Your mortgage will be less, energy and electric will be far less and you have less areas to decorate. This leaves more money for experiencing life, like taking that trip you’ve been wanting to take for years but couldn’t swing in the monthly budget or starting that new business or hobby you’ve been dreaming about. The opportunities are endless when you have more spending money each month for yourself and not going back into square feet you don’t need.

Of course with every good move there are always a few compromises. Living in a tiny home means that space is a precious commodity and you must use it wisely to optimize your living environment. While it is easier to clean, the space can feel slightly smaller when things are out of place and a little messy. You may have dual uses for areas, such as the kitchen table doubling as a work desk, and the living room floor as a work out area. Family members will also have to be respectful with noises like talking too loudly on the phone while someone is doing homework or watching TV late at night while others are trying to sleep. While there are always pros and cons to every decision, we feel with a little understanding and getting used to that the pros of tiny living in Myrtle Beach far outweigh the cons.  


Tiny Homes in Myrtle Beach a Great Investment

Are Tiny Houses Good Investments?

We sure think so! As you pay down the mortgage on your tiny home, your home equity will increase which is always a good way to boost things such as retirement funds. And since tiny houses tend to be much less expensive than larger homes, some homes in Myrtle Beach starting around $95,000, home owners are able to pay their mortgages off in less time and for less out of pocket each month, as well as save on taxes. This again allows families to put money towards other activities and investments that will better their future. Most tiny homes are also located in very charming and desired locations around Myrtle Beach as they don’t take up large plots of land like a traditional sized home in most neighborhoods. You may find yourself in the heart of Myrtle Beach, walking distance to shops and restaurants, or beachside with a colorful tiny home and the glistening water as your backyard. It also helps that Myrtle Beach is a very desired destination for families, retireees and vacationers, and there are many options when it comes to tiny homes for sale in the area. 


Tiny Homes for Second Homes

Are Tiny Homes Good Second Homes? 

Tiny homes make for a wonderful second home! Chances are you’ve taken a few vacations in your lifetime. Have you ever looked around and thought “I could see myself living here!” Many second homes are vacation homes and there is nothing better than going on a vacation to a place that feels like home. And with incredible beaches, amazing restaurants and top ranked board walk, Myrtle Beach is an ideal and very popular destination for vacationers around the country.

A tiny home is perfect for a second home because you have a place that is familiar and you can settle into when you are wanting to get away for a bit. Since it is not your everyday home, you don’t need a lot of square footage to feel comfortable, and it is very low upkeep compared to a large home in the weeks you are away. You are also able to leave and store items that you only use while you are there, alleviating the need to over pack and simplifies traveling and packing for everyone.  

Many people think that a second vacation home or investment property is out of reach because of the large price tag. But with a tiny home this idea becomes much more tangible as they are lower in price, thus a lower mortgage payment, and you are also able to rent it out when you are not staying there. And lets face it, with how popular Myrtle Beach is, you should have no problem renting it out. This can help to offset the cost each month, or if purchasing as an investment property, it’s a great way to pay the entire mortgage each month and even make a little (or a lot of) profit. Overall, tiny homes are a great option when looking to purchase a second home and should be considered a top pick when starting your search in Myrtle Beach.
