North Myrtle Beach Poised for Growth in 2014

North Myrtle Beach is poised to create real estate growth in 2014, both commercial and residential. It has already opened its new sports complex and a new shopping area called Champions Crossing in the same area on Hwy. 90 near the Robert Edge Parkway.

The North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex opened on March 1, 2014 after a 16 month build. The new complex is home to six softball fields, playgrounds, walking trails and even dog parks. The park was put to use right away hosting a youth soccer league game and a college softball tournament.

The park will play a big role in North Myrtle Beach's economy, helping to improve the area's position in sports tourism.

North Myrtle Beach officials expect to generate between $15 and $18 million in economic impact just at this facility alone. Throughout the city the economic impact is already around $30 million.

Champions Crossing is a new shopping complex with 250,000 square feet of leasable area. Coupled with the Sports Complex, this will help North Myrtle Beach become a year round tourist destination.

Most importantly, these two new developments will create new job opportunities and will bring new families to the area. This will help boost the already improving real estate market.

There is plenty of room for more commercial and residential development at the Robert Edge Parkway. New home construction is on the rise throughout the Grand Strand area and the same holds true for North Myrtle Beach.

If you are interested in purchasing a newly constructed home in North Myrtle Beach or want to learn more about the area - Century21 Barefoot Realty can help.

Ron Windsor - Top Real Estate agent shares market knowledge

Lets Take A Moment!

It is May 2013, This is the time of the year where the grand strand receives the highest density of buyers at one time. I hear from ocean front investors instate and out of town that they want to wait until after the season. Your chance to get the most money for your investment is now! I’d like to share with you just a couple reasons.


1. More Showings creates more opportunities for an offer.

2. Immediate Return on Investment with rental programs.


As we take a moment and look at the national real estate market we see GREAT NEWS!! Is it really? Supply is running out demand is growing banks are getting nervous. I can only imagine that in time interest rates will increase at a manageable rate. It really takes us to the next question.

What better time is now to buy here on the Grand Strand? Here is a list of a few things that are working for you!


1. Low Interest Rates

2. Larger inventory


We must be aware of TIME! Those 2 things that are working for you! Are slowly going to change.

There are examples I can provide you that is factual data, where folks who waited a month paid $5,000 more dollars for the same property a month later.

So quick math, because we all love numbers. 24hours x 30days = 720 hours in a month.

Now $5,000 / 720 = $6.94 So you can see very easily that time is not on your side. Now there are more extreme cases in this market, where prices have increased $10,000 in over a couple months time. No way I am suggesting we are heading towards a Bubble. I am observing data that points to us actually having a increase in sales of 31% in April, and this is a step into a slight up tick in are local market.


We also have to be aware that on the Grand Strand properties appreciate at a historical rate of 3-4%.


Help me by letting me know how I can be of service to you!

Your Realtor,

Ron Windsor

Barefoot Resort real estate is nearly out of inventory!

It is hard to believe that we could make such a blod statement about any real estate market across the United States. The fact is, Barefoot Resort real estate inventory as declined so fast that it is hard to find a good property for our buyer prospects. In our onsite office, we get buyers stopping in daily requesting information on buildings or communities in the resort where we nothing to show them.

For seller, this is great news because it means they are going to be able to sell for a higher price then they once thought was possible. We have many cases where we have listed a property in Barefoot Resort for sale and had it sold within the first two days and at a very good price.

The one thing that we will have to keep our eyes on is that new constuction is in the works which will add supply to the resort. If you are a property owner and you are considering making a move, you may want to take advantage of the situation. Selling when supply is low and demand is high means a better price. Once developers start new construction, you will see demand for resales decrease to normal levels.

At Century 21 Barefoot Realty, we are here to serve you. Let us know how we can help.

Grant Reynolds turns For Sale By Owner into Sold

Many sellers think that selling a home on their own is their best option. When in reality the best option is to get their home sold! Grant Reynolds, a Realtor with Century 21 Barefoot Realty, contacted a local home owner who was undertaking the task of selling their home by themself. Grant Reynolds provided some information to the home owner and offered advice to them throughout the 2.5 months that the owner worked to sell the property on their own. Eventually the owner decided they were ready to stop trying and start selling.

Grant Reynolds met with the owners and provided them an honest assessment on the current market activity and learned what the sellers’ goals were. Based on the market and sellers goals he set a price to help them yield a desirable price that would help them accomplish their goals. From that point Grant Reynolds went to work aggressively marketing the property and within 7 days had a signed contract that the seller accepted at 96% of their list price. This contract represented the 2nd highest priced home contract in the last 6 months in the neighborhood.

Grant Reynolds Keys to Selling For Sale By Owner Homes:

• Analyze the market conditions
• Understand the owners goals
• Set a price that meets market trends and owner goals
• Aggressively market the property (See Grant’s marketing plan on the link below)
• Aggressively negotiate any offers to find the best deal for the owner

Grant Reynolds – Sells Highland Ridge Home in 7 days

Many homes come on the market and sit for months on end with no activity. But when a home is marketed correctly it generates not only activity but activity that leads to a contract. Recently Grant Reynolds, a Realtor with Century 21 Barefoot Realty, proved this point in just 7 days. He put his marketing strategies to work and within 48 hours of the home hitting the market it was being shown. Within another 24 hours a 2nd showing was scheduled along with another potential buyer scheduling their 1st showing.

Grant Reynolds implemented an aggressive plan to promote the property versus listing it and hoping that someone found it online. The showings lead to an offer by Tuesday from the listing that became active on Thursday. This was not a low ball offer but rather an offer at 93% of list price.

Through a strong negotiation process Grant Reynolds was able to get his client an acceptable offer at 96% of their list price. This was not because the property was priced low; actually this contract was the 2nd highest priced home to go under contract in the neighborhood in the last 6 months.

If you want to see what an aggressive marketing plan and strong negotiation skills can do for your property: contact Grant Reynolds to schedule an appointment.

Welcome to Century 21 in Barefoot Resort

The Favorite Resort in North Myrtle Beach!

Condo sales and homes sales in Barefoot Resort have increased over the last 2 years. The fact that active listing inventory in the Barefoot Resort has declined by nearly 40% plays a major role for the shifting market. In many cases, residential communities that once had 10 homes for sale may only have 3 homes for sale today. Anytime inventory decreases at that level, it is likely that prices will begin to increase.

Barefoot Resort includes many fine condo communities as well as residential neighborhoods. There is positive real estate news to report in each of these areas.
