Dunes Law Firm is a full service real estate firm, handling commercial and residential real estate closings, negotiation of real estate contracts, and like kind exchanges for clients along the Grand Strand. With over 20 years’ experience handling real estate closings from North Myrtle Beach to Litchfield and from Georgetown to Loris, Dunes Law Firm can assist with any of your real estate needs.


Real Estate Closings

In South Carolina, closings must be conducted by attorneys. At Dunes Law Firm, we handle various types of closings, including the purchase, sale and refinance of residential, commercial, and vacant land. If you are buying a single family home, a townhouse or a condominium, our devoted staff can assist with the purchase of your dream property. If instead you are looking to acquire rental property, a commercial or industrial building, or farm/timber property, we have the experience you need to successfully complete the transaction. And because Myrtle Beach and the rest of the Grand Strand are strong markets for tourism and relocation, our team appreciates the particular needs of clients who are not able to attend closing in person. So whether you are buying or selling your new home, a second home, a rental property, or that country getaway, consider letting the team at Dunes Law Firm assist through the process.


Like Kind Exchanges

The like kind exchange is a popular tool for deferring federal and state income taxes that would otherwise be due on the sale of real estate. In short, when real estate owned for investment or in a trade or business is sold, the proceeds are held by a designated third party until they are reinvested in new property that will be used for investment or in a trade or business. While the general concept is relatively simple, there are many rules and regulations that dictate how the exchange should be carried out to ensure the tax benefit of an exchange. Dunes Law Firm has the knowledge and resources to guide you through your like kind exchange from start to finish. So if you are selling that business property in New York to purchase a rental condo in Myrtle Beach, or if you are selling a rental home in North Carolina to buy some acreage near Aynor to hold for investment, we can advise and assist with all aspects of your exchange.
