Buying or Selling a Home in the Time of a Pandemic

You might be wondering if now would be the time to buy or sell your home?  If you live along The Grand Strand in the Myrtle Beach area, the answer would be yes! 


While we are living in uncertain times, and things are changing, this area is still one of the fastest growing areas in the country!  People from other areas of the country are finding new reasons to want to move to The Grand Strand.  Sure, our weather is a big help, but along with the palm trees and gorgeous beaches, people are now also looking to The Grand Strand because it is less populous than the areas that they currently live. 


The numbers indicate a strong real estate market!  The median purchase price of a single-family home in April increased 3.8 percent over April 2019 to $250,166.  Including commercial sales, real estate closings in April totaled over half a billion dollars.  With businesses in the area opening back up, we are starting to see more and more activity.  Inventory in the area is still tight so the time to sell is now!  And while you may think that the time to buy has passed you, there are still good deals available! 


Coastal Key Group prides ourselves on our full-service real estate including effective communication, local knowledge, and skilled instinct for this business.  Our most recent listings went under contract in less than a week.  Coastal Key Group is a local marketing expert, selling more than 42% quicker than the average Murrells Inlet agent.  So, give us a call!  We would be happy to help you!  843-651-KEYS
