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.

The rent versus sell decision should not be taken lightly especially if your original purchase was in the last few years and you fully intended to keep the property.  Rental units are in demand in Murrells Inlet and along the Grand Strand and while sale price declines appear to be leveling increasing values might not occur in the short term.  Location means everything and we can assist you with analysing your sell or rent senario or buy or rent if you are looking to buy a Murrells Inlet home.
