5 mistakes to avoid when buying a home!

Mon, Feb 26th 2024 2:32 pm by Lindsay Faircloth Faircloth Favorites

Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Buying a Home

Buying a home is an exciting journey but also one of the biggest financial decisions you'll ever make. If you aren't careful, it can be filled with pitfalls. In my 20 years as a real estate broker, I've seen my fair share of mistakes made by buyers. To help you navigate the process smoothly, I've compiled a list of the top five mistakes to avoid when purchasing a home.

1. Skipping Pre-Approval

One of the things I hear most often is, "I will get preapproved once I find the house I want". The pre-approval gives you a clear understanding of how much you can afford to spend on a home, gives you an idea of what your payment will be, and shows selle...

Things to do at the beach in winter

Mon, Jan 29th 2024 11:25 am by Lindsay Faircloth Faircloth Favorites

Ah February, the month where our winter chill begins to loosen its grip and Myrtle Beach begins to come alive again. While summer may our peak season with lots sandy toes and sun-soaked afternoons, Myrtle Beach also has its own unique charm during the cooler months. Here's how to make the most of life at the beach or your beach vacation in the cooler months.

1. Take a morning walk along the shore
The crisp sea breeze and the soothing sound of waves crashing create a serene start to your day. Though you will definitely need a coat (and remember it is always windy at the beach) there is nothing like a quiet morning on the sand overlooking a sunny ocean. 

2. Golf, Golf, and more Golf

Food is something I LOVE! Eating at new places, trying new things, I love it all. In this town there is no shortage of places to eat but when it comes to my favorites, that list is much smaller.

Wed, Jan 3rd 2024 10:54 am by Lindsay Faircloth Happy Holidays

Happy 2024!
Welcome to the new year! This year, I decided to skip the clichés of holiday themed emails and blogs, opting for a different route, a dash of subtle humor and a sprinkle of gratitude to enter a brand new year.

2023 has been a rollercoaster for many, including myself. From unexpected twists to thrilling turns, it's been a journey, and I'm genuinely grateful to have had you on board. Your trust in me has made it an incredible ride.

Now, let's talk resolutions. Actually, LET'S NOT. Resolutions lead to stress over not reaching sometimes unrealistic goals which leads to anxiety, then shame spirals....you get the picture. Let's talk growth instead. Growth in some way everyday, no m...

Furry Thanksgivings: When Pets Rule the Table (and Our Hearts)

Tue, Nov 21st 2023 11:45 am by Lindsay Faircloth Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! 

As Thanksgiving approaches, it's not just about the turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie—it's not just about family and togetherness, it's also about our furry companions crashing the party! Let's face it, our pets have mastered the art of being thankful for all the extra attention, especially when they try to snatch a bite of that perfectly roasted turkey! 

As a very proud frenchie mom myself, I can tell you that my Faircloth frenchies add joy to my life on a daily basis and each Thanksgiving that they are trying to trip me in the kitchen is no exception. 

Here's a sneak peek into what a Thanksgiving day with pets might look like:

Wed, Sep 13th 2023 6:36 pm by Lindsay Faircloth About Faircloth Real Estate Group

Why is my homeowners insurance quote so high?

Mon, Aug 28th 2023 12:55 pm by Lindsay Faircloth Buyer Info

Why is my homeowner's insurance so high?

Recently I received a letter from my insurance carrier saying they would no longer be issuing policies in my area due to it being a coastal region and I would not be renewed. No problem, I thought. I went back and asked for a quote which led to another, which led me to ask for a quote from 7 different companies in order to understand why my rate was SO HIGH!  I needed answers and I knew if I needed them that my clients did as well, so I found some.

In this blog I sat down with Perry Stalvey from Perry Insurance Group in North Myrtle Beach to find answers for all of you. Here is what I found. 

Me: Perry, thank you so much for being here today. ...

Tue, Mar 21st 2023 4:04 pm by Lindsay Faircloth About Faircloth Real Estate Group

"Which Real Estate Website is the Most Accurate"? If you are anything like me you want to use the most accurate website to find your home and if you are selling you definitely want your home on that site! How do you know which one is THE most accurate? Let's get into it. 


1. Are Realtor.com and Zillow the MOST accurate?

Let me first say, I like these sites. I use them. I know, I am not supposed to say that because they are supposed to be my enemy but I find them to be useful to me in the field sometimes. They are easy to use and pretty to look at but they are not the most accurate. Though they provide most of the same information that other sites provide the ease of use is their great...
