As 2015 begins, The Myrtle Beach real estate market is continuing to show strong signs of success. Local experts have been predicting that while the year 2014 was a good year for the local real estate market, 2015 would be even stronger. Personally I would tend to agree after just the first five days of this new year.
In the first 5 days of 2015, I have already seen a 300% increase in buyer lead inquiries for people looking to purchase a Myrtle Beach property over the average number of inquiries per week that I have received over the past 6 months. What makes this stat even more interesting is that normally, the month of January is one of the slower months in a year for buying or selling a home.
Typically the first few months of the year are rather slow for a Myrtle Beach real estate agent. We normally spend a lot of January and February preparing for our busy spring market that usually begins during March and then stays busy throughout the fall.
This increase in inquiries from both buyers and sellers is a welcome change to see this early in the year. If this is a foreshadow of what the rest of 2015 is going to look like, then people who have been thinking of selling their property in Myrtle Beach, now is the time to do so.
Over the past six months I’ve spoken with several potential sellers who have considered selling their home in Myrtle Beach who were not quite ready to do so. They felt either the market has not recovered, or that their home would not sell because of lack of buyers in our local market. This current upswing in buyer traffic proves that 2015 might be one the best opportunities to sell your home that we have seen in the past 8 years.
