The Century 21 McAlpine Family

The team at our office really operate as a team. We socialize together, share information, and help each other every day. We believe that we are only as good as our weakest link so we try to educate and help new agents all along the way. When you hire an agent at Century 21 McAlpine to sell your home or land, you are getting the services of not only all of the Multiple Listing service but the personal service of the 20 agents in our office. There are only a couple of things that make the difference in marketing your property. Exposure and proper pricing are the number one items. Beyond that, the property needs to be desirable and the agent needs to be knowledgable and trustworthy. It is our job to keep you safe and to obtain a fair market value for your home. We try to make it as easy and painless as possible. We recognize that for most people their real estate represents their most valuable possession other than family of course. We promise to put your interest ahead of ours and always have the goal in mind to build a relationship with you to provide future leads and referrals. Here are some pictures of our most recent social. Hope you enjoy.

2014 Local economic forecast!

Prices of homes rose 4% in 2013 and sales numbers increased 21% for the entire Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors coverage area. That area includes Horry an Georgetown counties. We expect 2014 to jump even more in 2014! As with so many other resort areas in 2007, the housing bubble burst and the following 5 years felt devastating to many homeowners and investors. Today, we see increased housing starts, a shortage of available products, and investors pinpointing Myrtle Beach and the entire Grand Strand area as the target market. One investor magazine that I read this week puts Myrtle Beach as the # 1 region for investors to consider! It is time to buy, the tides of real estate are turning in 2014!!
