Rick Knight answered:
Most lenders will use the exact HOA fee. If you are buying a condo on the Ocean most likely it will not qualify for conventional financing and will require non conventional financing or condotel financing. Ask your REALTOR about local lenders who finance non conventional loans for condos at the beach. This issue comes up just about every time I sell a condo. Conventional has so many rules to qualify such as, no rental desk in the lobby, only a certain percentage can be rental units, no more that a certain percentage can be owned by one person or entity. The list goes on and on. It could also not qualify because of the HOA. There is a required Condo Questionaire. Many items on that list may kill the conventional route. For example I just closed one and the buyer had to change lenders because the HOA did not have enough reserves. ... more

Christine House answered:
Charles,
You would advertise it in the same medium your would to sell. However in my many years of Real Estate in multiple states I have never seen this work out. It is often a lot of frustration, work & never actually happens. For example with any traditional sale both parties have to agree & if there is an issue it can usually be negotiated. In trade it is harder to negotiate since it is supposed to be just that a trade.
Good Luck,
Cordially,
Christine House

Nancy Richardson answered:
I'm not sure if one area would be a better investment than the other, since both "beach towns". What aspect of investment are you referring to? Potential rental income, or longer term and appreciation? You will definitely get a property that is closer to the beach for a lot less money in Cherry Grove than you will in Pawley's Island.

I would be happy to share more thoughts with you if you would like to contact me directly.

Thank you,
Nancy Richardson

Michael Atwood answered:
Max,
I would also just add that the different complexes have different amenities and ambiance which also adds value or takes value away from the cost per square foot. The best suggestion I could make to you would be to decide upon what buildings or complexes you like and then compare the recent sold properties within each complex. With the different complexes being from almost 30 years old to 3 years differences in age this definitely affects the cost per square foot. In the event you need any further assistance I would be glad to work with you on a comparison.
Regards,
Michael Atwood
