VIDEO: Myrtle Beach hot spots

Saturday, May 23rd, 2015

Hello, and welcome back! Today, I discuss Grand Strand hot spots for buyers and sellers alike!

Market Common is currently the hottest market along the Grand Strand. It’s expanding dramatically, and builders are keeping awfully busy in the area. Another growing spot is Murrells Inlet, which is continuing the rapid growth it has had over the last few years. Finally, Carolina Forest is yet another hot spot that has a huge potential for growth right now. These three areas are the ones to keep an eye on, as they are the hottest places to be in our area.

Since Myrtle Beach is an island that’s bordered by the Atlantic on one side, expansion is inherently limited. However, there is a good deal of expansion happening across the waterway to the west of Myrtle Beach. International Drive is expected to be paved within the next 12-18 months, so look for an increase in activity in the corridor between Rivers Oaks Drive and Highway 90. I’m thinking International Drive will really open up that area to expansion and growth!

As a native of Myrtle Beach, I’m a big fan of the centrality of Pine Lakes Country Club. It’s a quick drive away from the heart of Myrtle Beach, but still has the privacy of a more suburban community, so you get the best of both worlds. If I were to move today, I would probably move to that area!

If you have any questions about the area, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, give me a call or shoot me an email! I would love to chat about the goings on here in Myrtle Beach and help you in any way possible!

VIDEO: How to make the moving process easier

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Today, I’m thrilled to be joined by Charlene Blanton of Caring Transitions, who will explain how to relieve some of the stress that accompanies moving.

Rightsizing is the best thing you can do when relocating; this consists of making your life, appropriate for the place you’re moving to. Space matching is a good example: Caring Transitions will go in, take a picture, and measure the closets for their clients, before going into the current home and measuring the spaces there. By comparing the space in each home, you will know exactly how many things you can take with you!

When space matching in a kitchen, you need to take pictures of the cabinets open and closed. You then take a look at the drawers, cupboards, and other storage spaces and see if it matches your current home. Caring Transitions will help you go through and number the storage spaces numerically, so you can compare the space in your current home to that in your new home. This will prevent over packing and will make the transition as smooth as possible!

If you have any questions about how you can make the moving process easier, give Charlene a call at (843) 997-5088 or shoot her a quick email at As always, give me a call if you need real estate assistance of any kind. I’m always here to help!
