Selling Your Murrells Inlet Home

Spring is just around the corner and typically means Murrells Inlet home sellers get ready to place their home on the market in order to catch the wave of home buyers that look for homes so a summer move won’t disrupt the school year.  In an area like Murrells Inlet and the attraction from resort and second home buyers typical might not hold true for that rule but the spring and summer months look promising for Murrells Inlet real estate.

Are Murrells Inlet Home Prices Stabilizing?

Murrells Inlet home sale prices appear to be holding with a median sale price of  $240,175 for single family homes sold in September up slightly over the same month in 2010 when the median sale price was $238,416.  Along with the upward price trend the number of homes sold also increased in September with 40 single family homes sold in Murrells Inlet.  August Inlet home sales also showed an increase in median sale price so are Murrells Inlet home sale prices stabilizing?

The answer is they appear to be swinging upward but there is more to the picture than home sale prices since Murrells Inlet homes for sale also play a factor in where home sale prices might be headed for the remainder of 2011 and into 2012.  Currently there are 459 single family homes listed in the Murrells Inlet zip code and 85 with contracts but only 8 pending cash sales.  The active listings represent at least 1 years inventory and if listings continue to climb into the winter months when the number of sales typically falls we could see a less stable market going forward but for now Murrells Inlet home sale prices appear to be stable.

Determining the Value of Your Murrells Inlet Home

As a REALTOR® that frequently provides Broker Price Opinions on area real estate I have plenty of practice when it comes to helping Murrells Inlet home buyers and sellers determining the present value of their home.  No I am not an appraiser but what I can do is provide a home market analysis based on sales activity in particular homes neighborhood to arrive at a fair market price.

A home market analysis is an important tool in helping both home buyers and sellers and should be used to help sellers when listing their Murrells Inlet home or buyers wishing to purchase a Murrells Inlet home.  Home sellers needing to sell in todays market must take market facts into consideration as with over 500 single family homes listed in Murrells Inlet at this time overpricing could greatly extend marketing time.

When I work as a buyers agent it is especially important for me to show them property that is in their price range but I can also point out others that are overpriced and help them make the best offer possible on the home they wish to purchase by using recent Murrells Inlet home sales of similar properties.  Please contact us for assistance with determining the value of your Murrells Inlet home or to work for you when you purchase your home in Murrells Inlet.
