Best Time to Buy in Myrtle Beach, SC?

When you think of the best time to purchase a condo in Myrtle Beach, SC, what season comes to mind first? Some people would say the winter months as you are more likely to get a good deal because it is after the busy summer season. They think that more people are eager to sell as the rental income may not be as significant during the coming months. And while there may be some logic there, there are also other angles that should be taking into consideration as well. Now others may think that the springtime is the best time to purchase a condo as it is right before the busy summer months and they think that people will be eager to sell because they can up the price of the unit and put more money in their pocket. And while this is also something to take into consideration, there are still more elements to consider.

Contrary to what many people may think, when it comes to purchasing a condo in Myrtle Beach, SC, the time to buy in now! Prices in the Myrtle Beach, SC area have been going up year-over-year, and just last year we saw prices increase as much as 16.5 percent!

And on that note, it is also important for us to touch on the fact that it is not just about getting a good deal on the property – you want to make sure that the property will give you a good return on your investment. It is not just about finding a place at the beach, it is about finding the RIGHT place at the beach and avoiding the properties that are risky and will not be good investments down the road. And the properties with the best rental income are always in demand, no matter the time of year, and the prices of those properties usually do not fluctuate that much.

    I own investment properties in Connecticut and im retired and pretty flexible with my time I’m looking to bring my adult kids more into the business. Since I’m in a pretty good place from an equity and income standpoint I’m looking to grow our new business as a joint investment. After we have a couple of meetings I will be contacting you with more specifics about our future investment goals and timetables for expansion.. I will be reviewing your website along with my kids for properties we might want to consider acquiring.
