The 2014 Grand Strand real estate market finally saw what many have been predicting for many years, an upswing in prices and number of properties sold. Prices began to rise and more consumers were finally making the decision to buy or sell in 2014. This trend was also seen in our luxury home market.

So what does this mean for 2015? Personally I think we will continue to see this trend continue of more luxury properties selling this year. As mentioned the other day, this year has started off faster than any other in the past 8 years with a 300% increase in real estate inquiries.
I think one thing that will help push to make our Myrtle Beach luxury market even stronger is the great values on property here compared to other parts of the country. Remember the other week when I shared about the property for sale in California for 195 million dollars? You can definitely find luxury homes here for a fraction of the cost.
