Real Estate Market Update – Myrtle Beach Real Estate In South Carolina

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

You’ve seen the ashes and sackcloth in the national media. We’re facing an impending housing crisis of Biblical proportions, Bear Stearns got bought out by Morgan Stanley, and the World is Going To End. Oh, and real estate is the worst place to park your assets right now. At this point, the litany of woes in the housing sector sounds like an early ’90s grunge act, or maybe the final act of an opera as everyone threatens to throw themselves off the cliff.

What isn’t getting reported is that every trend has a rebound line. Right now, housing prices are down; they may not have hit bottom, but they’re probably very close. As anyone who does investing or sales knows, the key to making money is to buy low and sell high. Right now, the price of housing is very low – and there are lots of people desperate to get out from under their mortgages, so the first part of that formulation is here. How about selling high?

Let’s look at the housing market – we’ve got an economic correction (read “recession”) coming on. We’ve also got a demographic wave peaking with the Baby Boomers getting set to retire…and they’re going to want to buy retirement homes. After all, real estate is an investment in a tangible asset with real value – you can always re-sell the land, or live in the home. It’s one of the safest investments out there…and there are markets where the housing prices are down and the upside potential is great.

One of those markets for real estate is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Let’s look at the numbers. Myrtle Beach is the sixth fastest growing metro area in the US Myrtle Beach real estate is a good investment in the near term, and a great investment in the medium turn. The time to buy is when everyone’s driving the price down – and the time to buy into Myrtle Beach real estate is right now.

Expanding into General Myrtle Beach Real Estate Allows The Hoffman Group to Embrace New Website Marketing Technologies

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

The Hoffman Group is launching additional search capabilities on all its Myrtle Beach Real Estate websites.

Myrtle Beach, SC March 28, 2008 — With the March 2008 announcement that The Hoffman Group is expanding into the general Myrtle Beach Real Estate market, the company has launched a new website and upgraded its other websites to provide visitors additional, user-friendly options in their search for Myrtle Beach Real Estate opportunities.

“Both and have been dedicated to the oceanfront resort condominium market,” said Steve Edelman, Chief Operating Officer. “At, we introduce new projects, primarily pre-construction condos for sale. At, we focus on the resort condo resale listings market.”

“With the expansion into general real estate,” continued Edelman, “we needed to give consumers much broader options for identifying the perfect property for their needs. We’ve created a new site, Myrtle Beach Real Estate.”

This will be a major change for The Hoffman Group since it will broaden listings searches to return properties along the 60-mile coastal area known as the Grand Strand as well as properties inland and west of the Intracoastal Waterway. There will also be a “behind the scenes” improvement that “corrects” different spellings of cities within the MLS service so that all listings meeting the consumer’s request will be returned.

The company is also utilizing technology that will allow it to enhance its own listings to present more information than is currently available from the database feed supplied by the local MLS service. Enhancements include headline, descriptive text and additional photographs designed to make The Hoffman Group’s Myrtle Beach Real Estate offerings stand out from those listed by other firms.

“ In addition, The Hoffman Group will be embracing Web 2.0 type technologies as well as various other features and functions,” said Randy Zlobec, Internet Marketing Director. “One such feature will be user profiles that will allow visitors to save their search criteria so they can receive email notification when new listings that match their interest come on the market,” concluded Zlobec.
