“not enough jobs.”

Myrtle Beach Bank Owned Homes

You may be asking yourself why Myrtle Beach Bank Owned Homes offer some of the better deals along the grand strand. The reason is people bought these properties at a time when the market values were inflated and as a result of the economic downturn, they were no longer able to make their mortgage payments. Instead of pursuing a short sale an alleviating some of the debt, the property was allowed to enter into foreclosure, which essentially means the bank takes back the asset (condo or home). Now the trick is these banks don’t want to sit on these properties for too long, because that’s money tied up in a physical asset that can’t be used elsewhere. They typically will try to get the market average for the property but when you have an experienced agent who knows the banks and the market, here’s where the deals present themselves.

Is Now A Good Time to Invest In Myrtle Beach SC Real Estate

by The Jerry Pinkas Team

Is Now A Good Time to Invest In Myrtle Beach SC Real Estate? The Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts constantly studies the market and the numbers. The MSN Money.com & Case Shiller report shows us that real estate still yields the highest return on investment over the stock market. Amazing but true! Take a look at the chart during the time period of January 2000 to November 2011.  The MSN Money.com & Case Shiller report shows us that if you  took the exact same amount of money, and invested in the year 2000, you would only get a 6.7% return on your investment with the Dow, or lose 12% in the S&P or lose 30% in the NASDAQ!. Now, if you took the same amount of money and had invested it in real estate, even with the down market, you would get a 43% return on investment.

Good Time to Invest In Myrtle Beach SC Real Estate

Even if property values go down further, it's very important to understand that with interest rates at historical lows, the cost of buying a Myrtle Beach investment in a condo or home is still more affordable than ever!

 Insanely low interest rates combined with Low prices on Myrtle Beach real estate make it possible for more people to purchase primary residences, oceanfront condos, second homes, and investment properties.  However, this window of opportunity opportunity won’t last forever.  Once interest rates go up, so will the cost of owning a home.

The Bottom Line
Often, a "good time to buy" is when the media says the market is terrible.  Think about it if you had bought when the stock market was diving, and everyone was bailing out of the market. Now fast forward to today. The question is would you have made money when the media said it’s a terrible market?   The bottom line: If you are waiting to get a better price on a Myrtle Beach condo or home, by waiting any longer it could end up costing you more when you finally make your purchase. Even if you don’t factor in any potential rental income, now is a good time to invest in Real Estate.

Interestingly, Brookgreen Gardens has the only zoo accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on the coast of the Carolinas.

Myrtle Beach real estate market outlook - property sales rise in Myrtle Beach

by The Jerry Pinkas Team

The upward trend in sales is a good indicator for the market.  In 2011 real estate property sales were up along the Grand in part because of the incredible prices on Foreclosures, short sales, bank owned properties, and motivated sellers.

The local Multiple Listing Service reports approximately 7,845 properties sold along the Grand Strand in 2011. Single-family home sales were up 6 percent in 2011, compared to the 2010. Myrtle Beach condo sales were also up over 1 percent last year.

Sales should continue to improve this year as more investors see that they can get a return on their investment and retirees are moving to the area.

With inventory dropping, we have seen some of the best deals sell in one day and with multiple offers. Since we have cleared through a lot of inventory, selection has tightened up. Many of the buyers purchasing those low priced properties are paying in cash at a higher rate than they have in the pas


In 2011, 53 % of our properties sold, were paid for in cash. Years ago a as much as 90 % of the buyers purchased through financing. People have been sitting on the side lines for time just like this and know an opportunity when they see one.


Many people have had the desire to have their own place at the beach, and now with the pricing and rental income factored in, it’s more affordable than ever.

Myrtle Beach has had a boost in the number of sales, and the reduction in the number of properties on the market.  This is the main reason we have had a stabilization of the market.


With these recent numbers, the Myrtle Beach Area is looking to be the year of the turnaround.

Our team helps you make well informed real estate decisions in the Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach Condos area.
