Sunset Beach Real Estate Market

Sunset Beach has a strong tourism component, but buying a home here is an option as well. The median sale price of a home in Sunset Beach as of April of 2019 is $181,000. That is about $132 per square foot. This area is very competitive for the Myrtle Beach area as a whole. For example, the price per square foot in Myrtle Beach is about $140 at this time. In Sunset Beach, that price is just a bit lower.

Home prices are growing in the area. From April of 2018 through April of 2019, home prices have grown about two percent. That is not a large increase for the region, but it is competitive overall. It also means home prices remain affordable to those looking to buy a home in this area. It may mean home values continue to rise in the coming years as well, which can create equity for homebuyers right away.

One of the key factors that makes this market a bit more aggressive than others is the number of homes for sale. As of April of 2019, there are about 18 homes listed for sale. That is very low inventory for a city its size by comparison to the surrounding communities. And, demand is high. From December through March of 2019, about 54 homes were sold. This is also considered the slow season. This indicates that there is demand for homes that may not be readily available, pushing home prices up.

Another option for those who wish to live in the community is to build. The good news is there is new construction happening here. It is possible to purchase in a new neighborhood or subdivision or to buy a larger lot to build from with a custom home builder. Home builders such as King & King Builders, Inc., Carolina Bluewater Construction, and Riptide Builders, LLC are available here.
