People aren’t buying Myrtle Beach real estate at the rate they once did, but they are looking.

Myrtle Beach recently made Realtor.com’s list of markets across the nation with the fastest-growing search activity, likely because people are readying to snag a deal when the market bottoms, and they’re looking in areas with the steepest price declines, experts said.

Of the 135 markets with the biggest uptick in Web traffic, Myrtle Beach was 42nd, with a 24.6 percent increase in search activity on the home selling site for the National Association of Realtors. The survey compared search activity in July to July 2007.

Topping the list was Stockton-Lodi, Calif., with a 140.9 percent increase, and at the bottom was Roanoke, Va., with a 1 percent increase.

Other markets in the Carolinas that made the cut include the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson area (up 12.2 percent), Columbia (up 2.2 percent) and Wilmington, N.C. (up 1.1 percent).
