Foreclosures have been very common over the past couple of years due to the economy, job market, housing market and many other factors. An extremely good sign for real estate owners or potential real estate owners in Surfside Beach is that as of October 2011, there are only 17 listed Surfside beach Foreclosures. At one time there were hundreds of foreclosures which made buyers very happy but in the end it they hurt the overall market. Many real estate owners have been hoping for a reduction in foreclosures which they hope in the end will mean a return of the housing market. Surfside Beach has had a reputation to hold it’s value rather well and the 17 foreclosures is another bright note.
