Many people are a little frazzled when they think of starting their home search and everything that comes along with buying a home and moving.

Our first piece of advice when it comes to starting your search is to take things seriously.

And these are all great steps, but the most important step and advice we can give you is to link up with a professional who knows the ins and outs of Myrtle Beach, SC. There really is no good substitute for having an experienced real estate agent by your side, offering advice and ensuring you are taking the right steps to find your dream home. And, as you may have guessed, that is exactly what we are going to be covering in today’s post.
I am interested in moving to Myrtle Beach, SC – where should I start my search for information?
We cannot stress how important it is to link up with a reputable realtor who not only knows the Myrtle Beach, SC area but who has a proven track record to successfully help people find their dream home. There are so many wonderful areas and neighborhoods within Myrtle Beach, SC that offer residents an enviable lifestyle, and finding the right one for you can be easier than you think. There are so many people who talk about wanting to move to Myrtle Beach for the beautiful beaches, temperate weather and endless entertainment. But it is one thing to want to move, and another to put the plan in motion.
So when starting your search for information, it is important to get serious about the move first, then to find the best realtor that will make the search and process as simple as possible for you and your family. Our team here at Jerry Pinkas Realty has helped many people narrow down their search of their perfect area within Myrtle Beach, SC, to the perfect neighborhood and eventually their ideal house.

And while it does not hurt to do all those things, having an agent from our team who knows the area and has experience with Myrtle Beach and the grand strand real estate is the best way to ensure a smooth home buying process.
Is the internet a reliable source for information when starting my search?
In today’s day and age, almost anything and everything you can imagine can be found online. You can buy your wardrobe online, you can search for cars online, heck you can even buy your groceries online and have them delivered the same day! So the obvious place for most people when starting their house search in Myrtle Beach, SC is to go online. And while there is a lot of information available to you on the internet, the cold hard truth is some of the information is not reliable and can even be a little misleading. The internet is a great tool for some things, but you must talk with an expert that is on the ground in the area and who knows Myrtle Beach, SC and the grand strand inside and out.
Now we are not saying that all the information you find on the world wide web is inaccurate. We are simply trying to hit home on the fact that your best bet to find the most accurate and reliable information for your specific home and neighborhood criteria is to sit down with an experienced agent.

The internet can be a good place to get a bird’s eye view of Myrtle Beach, SC, but when it comes down to putting things in motion, you want the pros working for you.
When is the best time to make the move to Myrtle Beach, SC?
Another question we get asked quite frequently (and one that we addressed in length in another post) is when the best to move to Myrtle Beach, SC is. Some people think its right after the busy summer season because prices are more likely to drop, while others think that the spring is the best time because it is right before prices are likely to go up. And while there is good logic in both, the best time to move to beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC is now!
It is no secret that Myrtle Beach, SC offers its residents a lifestyle that is second to none. That, paired with an affordable cost of living and a prime retirement destination, people are flocking here on a daily basis to take advantage of all that the area has to offer. With that said, if you are wanting/thinking of moving to Myrtle Beach, SC the time to do it is sooner than later. The prices are not likely to be going down any time soon, and with the influx of people, you are risking the chance of prices going up year after year. Also, the properties that are in demand will always be in demand, and therefore the prices of those homes are not likely to fluctuate much based on the time of year.
