I am Bill Kohout a local realtor and I am very knowledgeable of this area including the current market conditions. I moved to the beach from Indianapolis twelve years ago, but before the move, I researched several areas including Florida, Texas, Arizona, Jamaica, and Myrtle Beach. For me, Myrtle Beach also known as the "Grand Strand" turned out to be the perfect destination! The Grand Strand area offers over 60 miles of public beaches on the Atlantic ocean, over 100 top notch golf courses, show theaters, over 1600 restaurants, and many tourist activities that welcome locals.
Just a little about me. I received a Bachelor of Business administration from Loyola University in Chicago and was then recruited by International Harvester Corporation in 1969. My experience was diversified when I retired in a Senior Management role in manufacturing and engineering from International Truck and Diesel Engine Inc. (same company) with 36 years of experience.
Economic times have certainly changed as with market values, but the same prime locations remain prime locations! Real estate along the Grand Strand is a great investment. The housing prices are "rock bottom" with all the foreclosures and as a result, our real estate market is heating up again. I would be happy to discuss the real estate market and our beautiful beaches with you. Please feel free to call me anytime.
