What is a Condotel in Myrtle Beach?

by Jerry Pinkas

 

Condotels Myrtle Beach for sale

If you are looking to purchase a condo in Myrtle Beach, SC you may have spent countless hours online doing research, looking at different properties and trying to decide what the best option is for you and your family. But while starting the search online may seem like a good idea, many people are misguided and have the misconception that all condos are the same. I mean, what can be different? It’s just a condo, right? Wrong! There are in fact different subcategories for specific condo units, subdivisions, complexes and resorts, and it is important to understand the differences so you can make an informed decision on what is the best fit based on what you are looking for. In today’s post, we are going to be talking specifically about condotel’s – what they are, what are some pros and cons of these specific types of units and the best route to take if in the end, you find yourself looking to purchase one. We hope today’s post clarifies some of the misconceptions and differences in condotel’s and traditional condo units to better help you make decisions today, or in the future down the road as you begin your search

 

What is a condotel?

It is so important to understand exactly what a condotel is because you may find yourself looking online at a unit, which just so happens to be a condotel, but the description may not come out and say that exact phrase. So understanding the qualities and characteristics of a condotel will help to better equip you when conducting research. A condotel essentially is a condo that can be rented either by the night, the week, the month or multiple months, and is similar to that of a resort as the building has a front desk where people can walk up to book or rent a unit. It is similar to a hotel in that many times the building actually looks like a hotel, but each individual unit is actually individually owned. Now the owner obviously gets a split of the nightly rate that is charged by the front desk, but the owner does not necessarily have to be involved in the booking process. Which is an ideal situation for anyone living out of state, travels for work or someone who simply would rather not take on the burden of personally dealing with the rental process. 

The front desk will usually also take care of all the cleaning for the unit including washing towels and linens, as well as any maintenance that pops up from time to time. And at the end of each month, the owner will get a statement showing how many nights the unit was rented during that time period and a check for their split of the rental income. Condotel’s work especially well in resort areas because they usually are located in popular vacation destinations and have a pretty consistent flow of people looking to rent units. And if the unit happens to be Oceanfront, that unit will not only be more appealing to renters, but you usually can also charge a premium for the desired location.

 

What are the pros of purchasing a condotel?

There are a few pros of purchasing a condotel that we wanted to point out in today’s post. First, as we touched on above, the front desk allows the rental process to be smoother, more efficient and less stressful. Also, that rental income you receive will help to offset costs of the unit on a monthly basis, such as your mortgage, rest estate taxes, homeowner’s association fees, etc. And if you have enough rental income each month to cover all your expenses on the unit and you live out of state, you have a second home in beautiful, sunny Myrtle Beach, SC that is being paid for by renters. Now that is a pretty sweet deal!

What are the cons of purchasing a condotel?

And as with all pros, there are always usually a con or two mixed into the equation. As we talked about above, you may have a unit that is covered financially each month by renters. But, on the flip side of that pro, you may also find yourself having to book your time in your unit in advance. If the front desk or rental company rents out the unit during the time you were thinking of going, it can create some complications. So it is always good to plan your trips to your unit as much in advance as possible and give notice so there is a block and it is not rented out during that time. 

And on that same note, if you are wanting to maximize your rental income through the unit, you should try to book your stay at the unit during the slow/off-season as to not take away from the income during the peak season. You also may find it difficult to find a lender for a condotel, as most major banks will not finance these units. Luckily, we know some lenders around town that will work with you, and we can make those introductions as needed.

Are condotels a good investment in Myrtle Beach, SC?

If we are being honest, not all condotel’s are a good investment. The best units, obviously, are the ones who produce massive amounts of income on a monthly basis. And the truth is that there are some units in which we call alligators, that will end up eating you alive. Those are the bad/risky investments that we try to steer our clients away from. However, on the other hand, there are also condotel units in which are rental income machines and continue to produce high revenues for the homeowner’s week after week, month after month, and year after year.

That is why it is so important to have an experienced, knowledgeable realtor in your corner during the whole process. Our team here at Jerry Pinkas Real Esate Experts has been doing this a long time, we know the area, we know the comps and we know what to look for in units.

Mistakes to Avoid When Purchasing a Condo in Myrtle Beach, SC

by Jerry Pinkas

 

buying a condo in myrtle beach is it a good investment 2017

If you are in the market to purchase a condo, today’s blog post is one you do not want to miss! At Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts we have helped countless individuals, couples, families, and retirees purchase a condo here in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC, and have seen just about every situation you could image unfold. We understand the excitement, as well as the struggles and pitfalls, that can accompany the purchase of a new condo, which is why we wanted to bring you this blog today. We want to help you avoid those mistakes that can be costly and extremely frustrating when purchasing a condo in hopes to make it a smooth and successful buying process for you. If you want to learn about potential pitfalls and things to be aware of when buying a condo, keep reading below.

What mistakes should I watch out for when purchasing a condo?

Here at Jerry Pinkas Real Estate Experts we understand why condos are so appealing to people, especially millennials and seniors who are retiring, so this information really spans and relates to all age ranges. The first thing we want to bring to light when purchasing a condo is making sure that you are using the right lender, as they will help you to review any litigations and homeowner’s documents on your behalf. Why would the lender be interested in this you ask? Well, the same way you would not want to get involved with a risky property, they equally do not want to loan you money on a project that is going to get them in trouble either. So using the right lender is definitely a bonus on your part as they will help to ensure the value of the investment.

Next, make sure to review certain aspects of the Homeowner’s Association such as their budget, if they have reserves (and if so how much), if they have money in the bank, are they are losing money and if the HOA has any pending litigations against them. These are all very important things to know. You can also take a look at the meeting minutes, as well as inquire about any pending projects that are outstanding. You may also want to ask about the stability and turn over rates within the HOA as that can be a potential red flag.

successful tips for buying a Myrtle Beach Condo

As far as the building itself goes, there are certain areas that you will want to inquire about. And this is a good time for us to point out that having the right real estate agent by your side will certainly help in making sure all the right questions get asked, as well as making sure that all the questions get answered and nothing is left unsaid. Especially when it comes to the condo questionnaire, you will want to make sure that everything is filled out properly to avoid any potential complications and headaches. You will want to inquire about any timeshare units in the building, how the commercial space (if any) associated with the property is set up, who make up the homeowner’s association and making sure that the HOA and the rental company are separate entities. You will also want to see if there are any structural issues to take note of such as mold, leaking roof - things of that nature. These are all things you want to know and fully understand before you get involved with a condo building.

Owning a condo in Myrtle Beach

What is the difference between a condotel and a condo?

There are a few main differences that are important to note when it comes to condotels and condos. When you think of condotels, image hotel units that are being sold to individual buyers but continue to operate with many of the same features as a hotel. For example, condotels offer many of amenities that people know and love about traditional hotels such as on-site restaurants, lounges, front desk check-in and gift shops. Additionally, the condotel units are usually sold furnished, so that takes some pressure off the buyer to have to purchase additional furniture. The owner is able to use the condotel whenever they wish, and the unit can also be rented out nightly or for extended stays during vacant times through a rental program. A large benefit of condotels is that, in many cases, they are rented, maintained and cleaned by the hotel management, or you can opt for an off-site management company to take care of this for you. Either way, you can expect the unit to be tended to in your absence.

On the flip side, in a traditional condo, the owners are responsible for everything listed above including in home security, maintenance, and housekeeping, and the units are typically sold unfurnished. If you are a long distance owner of the condo, you can imagine how this reality can present some difficulties, especially if you are looking to rent the unit out when you are not using it. You can hire a company to clean the unit after each rental stay, so there are definitely ways to make everything work and be profitable. It is also important to note that rental options in a condo usually require more than one nights stay, and the on-site amenities, such as the gym and pool, tend to be limited.   

What are the benefits of buying a condo versus a detached home?

There are many benefits to owning a condo, as well as a detached home, depending on what you are looking for. One of the main benefits that many people enjoy in condo living are the amenities. Many condo buildings have resort style amenities including spa-like fitness centers and pools, and these features may be too costly if you have to incorporate them into your own home. Additionally, condos are more convenient and tend to be more low-maintenance which is great if you live a busier lifestyle. Much of the maintenance of the building is covered in association fees, so the only thing to really worry about is the interior of your specific unit.

One of the main reasons that people look to purchase a condo versus a detached home, simply put, is the price. Condos tend to be much less inexpensive which is great if you are a first time home buyer or are looking to purchase a second home or investment property. The barrier to entry when purchasing a condo is lower, and therefore more attainable for a lot of people. And since there has been a large influx of retirees to Myrtle Beach, and many are on a strict set income each month, having the lower bills of a condo is much more appealing.

What should I do if I am interested in buying a condo in Myrtle Beach, SC?

After all the information we covered above, it is clear to see that there is a lot that goes into buying a condo. And while it should be a fun and exciting time, you want to make sure you have the right people in your corner working for you to ensure that you avoid the pitfalls that can be costly, frustrating and a huge waste of time.

Well friends, we are here today to tell you that you would be very wrong if that was your mindset when starting your home search.

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.

Top Condo Properties for Investment in Myrtle Beach

by Jerry Pinkas

I get a lot of calls and emails about condos on the beach and investments, and “what should I look for, and what should I knot look for?”  So today I’m going to talk about the good, the bad, the ugly, kind of like I do when you’re here looking at properties. I don’t just tell you what’s good. I tell you what’s bad and the problems to stay away from.

Today we’re at Compass Cove Resort. It’s an ocean unit on the 7th floor. The resort has 23 pools, lazy river, tiki bar, shuffleboard, sports bar, breakfast, and restaurants - lots of stuff going on here.

A unit like this is selling for $115,000 and brings in about $27,000 - $28,000 per year. This particular unit did $27,477 last year. There was a little bit of owner usage, so that took away a couple weeks of money.

In the units themselves, they’re one bedroom. This particular unit is one bedroom, one bath, one living room. We’re going to go inside and talk about everything that’s included.

Watch the video for a detailed look at this unit and for a perspective on what’s involved with making an investment in a condo property in Myrtle Beach.  Be sure to also check out our other videos on our YouTube Channel, and keep coming back to our blog and videos each week for up-to-date advice on investing in properties in Myrtle Beach, along with other beachfront related articles.

How Do I Find Myrtle Beach Condos With Low HOA Fees?

by Jerry Pinkas

Myrtle Beach has plenty of condos and townhomes for sale.  You can perform a search for them on our website using our powerful Myrtle Beach search tool.

The thing that you should keep in mind though that it's not the quantity of properties for sale, but the quality. Many have great features, such as a pool, and would make a great vacation rental or 2nd home.

But how do you compare HOA fees for the Myrtle Beach Area?

It can be tricky to pin down an answer.  For example, one thing to consider is what is included or not included in the fee. That can make a real difference in the what the real costs turn out to be.

Here's a list of what HOA fees may or may not include:

  • water
  • interior electric
  • common area electric
  • building insurance
  • HO6 policy insurance
  • pool service
  • elevator service
  • exterior
  • grounds keeping
  • lawn
  • security
  • HOA accounting
  • trash
  • internet 
  • cable TV 
  • and much more...

Pay attention to a "low" association, as they may only cover 1 or 2 items on this list. If you end up paying for these items on your own, you could end up paying much more that you would in a HOA.  Just make sure you get all the facts from the person who works with you.
