Ready to Live in an Oceanfront Condo?

Living by the ocean is a healthier way to live. You'll be more tempted to spend time outside in the sun and in the fresh air.

Selling your condo in a buyer’s market

Homes for Sale Sign

It may be a buyer’s market, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things you can do to get the most from the sale of your condo.

First, you need to be realistic with your expectations. Accept the cards you’ve been dealt and do the best you can. While this can be hard, especially when other condos in your building were selling for top dollar just a few years ago, times have changed.  So don’t let your ego or unrealistic expectations get in the way of getting a fair price in today’s market.

Some Lucky Person Will Purchase Your HouseStudy the market. What’s the competition look like? Put yourself in the place of a buyer and look at ads in the newspaper, online and in real estate magazines. Get in your car and spend some time looking at all the condos you can. The condo amenities in Myrtle Beach like pools and lazy rivers are generally accessible for short periods of time for you to take a look. Attend open houses and eavesdrop on others attending. All of this helps you get a better idea of what buyers are looking for and what your condo should be selling for.

Make your condo ready for immediate occupancy. When buyers have a wide selection of condos to choose from, they’re not going to want to buy one that needs a lot of work unless it’s bargain priced. You need to remove any reason a buyer could say no.

Think about offering incentives. Lowering your price isn’t the only incentive you can offer. Perhaps you can pay the buyer’s discount points to help lower their mortgage rate, provide flexibility with closing dates, or pay closing costs. You might even consider a premium for the buyer’s agent with extra commission or another perk to help spur extra effort on their part.

And, of course, the most important thing of all is to put the right price on your property. Just because your home was worth tens of thousands of dollars more several years ago doesn’t mean that’s the price it will sell for today. It’s important for you and your Realtor to do adequate research and set a fair price on your condo in today’s market. While it’s not uncommon in a seller’s market to ask for as much as 20% more than you expect to get, in a buyer’s market, 3-5% more is more realistic.

Finding the right Realtor to work with your condo

Realtor for Your Condo

If buying a condo is the most important financial decision most people make in their lives, selling a condo is certainly a close second. And the most important step in selling a condo is finding the right Realtor with the sales and marketing expertise you need.

Who Will Your Realtor Be?First, always work with a licensed REALTOR®. As a member of the National Association of Realtors, these real estate professionals meet the association’s strict code of ethics that can often exceed the requirements of state law. And they must meet stringent education and licensing requirements as well.

Questions you’ll want answers to include:

  • Is the agent’s real estate license in good standing? The state’s real estate governing agency will have this information.
  • Is the agent a member of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a cooperative information network with descriptions of other condos for sale in a particular area? Almost all will be, but it doesn’t hurt to make sure.
  • What, if any, real estate designations does the agent hold? Designations and certifications from programs offered by the National Association of Realtors show a higher level of skills and knowledge in specific real estate areas. Just because a Realtor has no such designations doesn’t mean they’re not highly capable, but having them is further assurance of their expertise.
  • And, of course, get references and check them.

Ask friends, associates and others whose opinion you trust for recommendations of experienced Realtors and then focus on the three that seem to be the best. Ask each to come visit your property and to then produce a marketing analysis for it, giving the specifics of his or her plan to sell it. Be sure to get the marketing analysis and sales plan in writing

The market analysis for your home should compare it with at least three other condos currently on the market, three recent sales of comparable condos, and three inactive listings that didn’t sell. It’s a good idea to take a drive to see some of the properties in the market analysis to make sure there aren’t major discrepancies. And if there are, ask why. There could be very good reasons.

Other tips for deciding whether you have the right Realtor.

[VIDEO] Who’s Buying In Myrtle Beach Right Now?

Buying Myrtle Beach Real Estate


Hello I’m Greg Harrelson with 21 Harrelson Group down in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. And I just wanted to send you a quick little video sharing some answers to some of the questions I’ve been getting from the e-mail and even incoming phone calls.

Some recent questions that I’ve been getting about Myrtle Beach real estate in particular, investing in Myrtle Beach “is anyone buying?” The answer to that is yes. Quite a few properties are being sold right now to investors. The other thing is “can you get financing?” The answer to that is yes. There’s financing even on condo tails. And depending on credit assuming somebody’s got good credit then there’s even investor loans out there for with only 25% down on the ocean front. So there’s a lot of things loosening up right now that maybe isn’t being talked about in the media. It seems like the national news always talks about you know they always tell us about the times when no one can buy because the mortgages are not being given out. And yet you don’t see a lot of news of then notifying you that the mortgages have become easier to obtain. So I wanted to share that bit of information with you.

WHO is buying on the Grand Strand?

One of the interesting questions that I had from somebody though is they said, “well okay if people are buying who are those people?” And of course there are thousands of people that have different, every person has their own motivation for making a purchase or an investment property together. But I did think that was a great question and I wanted to address that because I looked into it and I found something’s that were fairly interesting that I wanted to share.

Warren BuffettSo who is buying? Who is buying real estate in Myrtle Beach South Carolina? Before I tell you who they are I wanted to say I was watching CNBC one day, probably a couple of months ago and I recall the analyst talking about  Warren Buffett was buying some particular companies. And what they were talking about is how there are certain bit of analysts that will actually follow Warren Buffets every move and when he purchases something they start to go in and look at it more carefully for consideration of purchasing themselves. Because of his past track record and the results and the returns he’s obtained in the past a lot of people look at him as an authority and when he makes a move they start considering making moves also.

So I just kind of wanted to put that in perspective. Of course this is not about Warren Buffett. And I don’t really know much about his real estate habits but I can tell you who’s buying in Myrtle Beach right now.

Developers. This may come as an interesting fact to you but developers have been purchasing some of the properties that they originally sold to other people. Now there a quite a few developers that no longer even exist maybe they went through bankruptcy or have been foreclosed on. So I’m really not talking about them, I’m talking about some of the very successful developers who created good projects, sold them and still actually have done very well in the down times or the adjusting market. What they’ve done is they had originally sold say a three bedroom condo on the oceanfront they may have originally sold that for $500,000. Okay you saw those purchases back in 2005 and 2006. Well unfortunately the buyer who bought it missed the market and was not able to flip it and then over the years they found themselves in financial strain because the rental income could not support the massive mortgage they had placed on the property. So then the bank foreclosed on that property, relisted the property for say $170,000. Now can you imagine the developer sold it at $500,000 and now it’s back on the market 6 years later for $170,000? Well yes the buyer who bought it for $500,000 it made no sense from a rental standpoint. In other words financially a purchase price of $500,000 could not be supported by the rent. But in some cases the rental income will support a purchase price of $170,000. So because so many developers are also in the rental business they are able to come back and buy the property at today price, put it in a rental property and actually make financial sense.

DeveloperNow what they’ll do is they’ll break even and make a little bit of money on a monthly basis from  the rentals and then they’re waiting 5,6,7,8 years and then the market appreciates, who knows when the market will appreciate, but they’re waiting longer term knowing that they’ll actually make profit on that unit again.

So who is buying? There are situations where developers are buying. I actually know some of the buildings that they are buying in and the price points that they look to purchase. Number two who are buying. Realtors are buying. I am noticing offers on my listings and in the disclosures they are disclosing that they are actually the purchaser or maybe their son is the purchaser. I think that’s a good sign. When you see real estate agents purchasing their own products, real estate, then I think it’s safe to assume that they’re analyzing the market, they’re projecting what they think is going to happen in the future, they’re noticing that there’s quality products on the market for sale and they’re analyzing the cash flow and then they’re making offers and making purchases. I think it’s a great thing. I think when you need to stay away is when real estate agents who a lot of them are investors. They’re kind of called insiders. If the insiders are not buying their own product then you probably shouldn’t be buying their product.

So, who else is buying?

As a matter of fact we could say maybe I got lucky but in 2005 I was not buying real estate. In 2011 and going into 2012, guess who’s buying? I’m buying real estate. So not only are some developers buying properties that they’ve already sold and now buying them back on the foreclosure block because they see opportunity. And not only are realtors in general getting back into the investing game and buying properties. I myself am actually buying. This week I made two offers on two different properties that I wanted to purchase. Now I will say I’m not the most aggressive investor. I’m probably a little bit more conservative when it comes to investing in real estate markets and any other type of investing. I’m very analytical at looking at all the numbers. I look at what the cost of the property is of course, the cost of borrowing money, the cost of ongoing maintenance, the cost of any management fees and I come down and look at it logically and determine whether or not the property that I’m purchasing can actually make some sense and maybe carry itself, give me a little bit of positive cash flow and then give me opportunity for appreciation later on.

So I just wanted to let you know that you get videos from me from time to time and you know it’s easy to for someone for a realtor like me to just send a video and say go out here start buying. I know that would make me a lot of commissions but I think there’s a little bit of validation when as I’m saying now is a good time if I’m also purchasing. I think that validates my comments.

Going one step deeper who is buying? My dad is buying. So not only am I considering properties right now but even my dad is considering property. Now you don’t know my dad but my dad brought me into this real estate business 17 years ago. He retired with about 25 years under his belt and in the local Myrtle Beach economy. He has seen the market go up. He has seen the market go down. He’s seen it go sideways. And at this time he noticed that there are some quality properties that are coming on the market at extremely discounted prices. Giving us an opportunity.

Buy real estate smart or don’t buy at all…

So developers, realtors, myself, my own family. Before I end I think some of you will probably ask well Greg what are you buying. I’ll kind of share a little bit of that with you. But first of all the key is to buy smart. You know don’t just go in and start making offers like people did in 2005, 2006. Where they were just making offers. They didn’t look at the stability of a homeowners association. They didn’t look at what the real rental income was. They didn’t look at the fine print on the management contracts. They didn’t understand really what they were buying. That wasn’t too smart. And when you don’t buy smart you end up getting in trouble. And I think we’ve got plenty of stories that we can observe to see exactly what comes up when you don’t buy smart.

So I’m telling you buy smart. Cash flow for people that are looking for cash flow. Cash flow is in the annual rentals right now. It’s not necessarily in the vacation rentals on the ocean front. You can break even in some cases, slight negatives in other cases. On the ocean front if you can break even and you can find yourself in a good position for future appreciation that might be a good investment for you.

For people that are okay with buying houses and putting long-term tenants in there. I find in myself recently making an offer on a property that’s not $90,000. It’s 1450 sq. ft. 3 bedroom 2 bath. With a two car garage in a neighborhood located near the best school system in Myrtle Beach. I’m actually making an offer for a $90,000. I’m going to put 30% down. I like to put a little bit more down and my payments are only going to be 300- 340 dollars a month. On that particular property. I can rent it immediately for $1000 a month.

So let’s say after everything I have $525 in expenses and I’ve got it rented for $1000. I’ve got a quality home. I bought it at a discount. It’s located in the best school system in Myrtle Beach and I’m making cash flow. So those are just a few ideas. Some of you want a vacation spot and you want to rent it and use it. There’s opportunity up and down the grand strand as long as you look at everything. Research everything. Make sure your realtor is providing good information to you.

So I hope that helps you and at the end of the day and developers aren’t buying, I’m at least looking. If realtors are buying I’m looking. Okay and that’s why you see that I’m buying. If I can ever help you I or my agents will be here to assist you in any way. Once again I’m Greg Harelson with Century 21 the Harrelson Group. And I hope you have great holiday season. Thank you.

The most important step in buying a condo

For Sale Sign

Tax Talk: Buying a Condo For Leisure or Investment Opportunity?

Tax Talk

Owning a home is likely the most important investment you’ll ever make. And buying a second home may well be the second. With low interest rates, an abundant inventory, and a housing market poised for a strong rebound, there’s never been a better time to buy a Myrtle Beach area condo for sale whether purely for personal use or as an investment opportunity. But since each offers different tax advantages, it’s important to understand them before you buy.

If you use your vacation condo for more than two weeks or for more than 10 percent of the time for which it is rented, the IRS considers the condo a personal residence. The mortgage interest you pay is all tax-deductible, just as it is on your first home. And you can write off the interest paid on home equity loans of up to $1.1 million secured by your first or second home and used to improve the properties.

If you rent for more than two weeks, though, the IRS considers it a business and you must report all rental income, but can deduct rental expenses, including maintenance. This can be a little complicated since you need to allocate expenses between personal and rental use. Having the property considered a business offers a number of flexible tax advantages that can be complicated. That’s why working with a Realtor who understands the advantages and disadvantages of both can be very important.

If you rent your condo for 14 or fewer days during the year, you don’t have to worry about tax considerations at all but can pocket the cash tax-free. Even if you’re charging $10,000 a week, the IRS doesn’t want to hear about it. The house is considered a personal residence, so you deduct mortgage interest and property taxes just as you do for your principal home.

Education helps cut the stress of buying vacation condo

Real Estate Contract

Buying a vacation condo can be one of the smartest things you’ll ever do, as well as one of the most stressful. But you can cut or even eliminate the stress by being an educated homebuyer, plus greatly increase your chances of getting a better buy.

First, get to know the Myrtle Beach area you’re interested in, the value of its condos for sale, the schools, transportation considerations and other factors. You’ll also want to make sure you have the necessary money for a down payment and closing costs. Typically down payments can be anywhere from 3% to 20% of the condo for sale’s value depending on the type of mortgage. And if your down payment is less than 20%, you may also be required to pay Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI).

Owning a condo in Myrtle Beach will be a wonderful experience, but you need to do your homework first.

Horizon BuildingYour closing costs will need to be prepaid and placed in escrow. Closing costs include taxes, title insurance, finance costs, mortgage points and other costs related to the purchase. When you apply for your mortgage, you should receive an estimate of these costs. And you also have the option of asking that the seller pay your closing costs as part of the contract.

Of course, before anything else you need to know how much you have to spend. The general rule when buying a condo in Myrtle Beach or anywhere else along the Grand Strand is that payment shouldn’t be more than 25% of gross monthly income. And your monthly housing expenses and outstanding debts shouldn’t be more than 30-40% of gross income. Obviously you’ll need to know what your expenses will be, including utilities, insurance, condo homeowners’ association fees, maintenance cost as well as a little extra set aside for unexpected emergencies. And know your spending limits! You may prequalify for a higher limit, but make sure it’s not more than you can afford long term.

You’ll want to obtain a credit report from the three main agencies TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian and check to make sure accurate. And you’ll want to hold off on buying big-ticket items before applying for a mortgage, since it can affect whether you’re approved and the amount you’re approved for.

Buying Condos in Myrtle Beach: On the BEACH or on the GREEN?

Oceanfront Condo or Golf Course Condo

Decisions, decisions, decisions. If you’ve decided to invest in one of many great Myrtle Beach condos for sale, you’ll be making a number of decisions as you look to find just the right property to fit yo­­­ur budget and needs. For many, one of the big decisions they’ll be making is whether to invest in oceanfront property, golf course property or other location when buying a condo along the Grand Strand.

Oceanfront Condos for SaleTraditionally, oceanfront resort condos for sale bring the highest rental income as well as the best appreciation over time. Put yourself in the place of a vacationer and ask yourself where you would rather stay: oceanfront or golf course? The answer for the overwhelming majority of vacationers is oceanfront. Who wouldn’t want to be able to just step out their door and walk out on some of the greatest beaches on the face of the earth whenever they wanted? There’s fun in the sun and surf during the day and relaxing to gentle sea breezes and the sound of the surf from your private balcony in the evening. With more than 100 great golf courses throughout the Grand Strand, a great round of golf on a great course is never more than a short drive away.

Golf Course Condo RentalThat’s not to say buying a condo on one of the area’s great golf courses isn’t a good investment as well. Just as there are renters who don’t mind paying a premium to be on the oceanfront, there are renters looking for more affordable accommodations who don’t mind a short drive to the beach. And golf course units are typically more affordable and fit a wider range of investment budgets.

Of course, there are many other important considerations when buying a vacation home. What are the homeowners’ association fees and what do they cover? What’s the rental history? Where is the property located and what are the location’s benefits and liabilities? What are the resort’s amenities? These are all great questions a professional Realtor will be able to help you with.
