Myrtle Beach New Home Construction Picking UpBy
For the first time in years, builders along the Grand Strand say that business is picking up, and while they’re still building a fraction of the homes they were at the peak of the housing boom, it seems the worst is in the past.
“It’s a drastic increase from what it’s been in the past three years,” said Berkley White, the president of the Horry Georgetown Home Builders Association.
White’s company, Classic Home Building & Design, is working on five custom homes, about the same number of jobs it did in 2002 or 2003, he said. Business has picked up enough that he is building a new model, the first time in years that Classic will have one, White said.
