It doesn’t take much convincing to get people to vacation at the beach. There’s the warm weather, a fun vacation-y atmosphere, endless activities and spectacular natural surroundings. The North Myrtle Beach area truly needs to be experienced in person to really appreciate its unique and varied qualities. In fact when folks from out of town visit our community, their sentiment is often the same; “If only I could LIVE here!”
All of us at Ocean Drive Beach Rentals and Worley Real Estate Group feel incredibly lucky to call the beach our home, and we encourage those who are curious about moving here or buying investment property to contact us about taking the next step. In case you need more reasons to take the plunge, here is a list of the top 5 reasons to purchase real estate in North Myrtle Beach:
5. Prices are still low
This is especially true with oceanfront condos. Due to a high level of available inventory, many condos are much more reasonably priced than you might think, and renting these properties to vacationing families offsets the cost even more. However the market is picking up and inventory is selling off, so the time to buy is now.
4. There’s more to the SC coast than just the beach
If you think all there is to see here is the beach, you need to come see for yourself. We have the Intracoastal Waterway, inlets, marshes, rivers, plantations, world-class golf courses, historical sites, national parks, wildlife refuges and many other great things to do and see close by. Myrtle Beach has wonderful attractions but if you don’t want to get caught up in the rush of tourism, opt for North Myrtle Beach or Little River.
3. Low cost of living
South Carolina is a relatively cheap place to live. We have low gas prices, low property taxes, and reasonable prices on goods and food. Housing, insurance and taxes are more expensive on the beach, and HOA dues for large complexes can be high, but make your home west of the waterway and you will see a dip in expenses. You’ll still be just minutes from the beach!
2. Small-town atmosphere
If you have vacationed here in July, you might not believe this one. But come back in the fall and winter and see how the area transforms from bustling tourist destination to quaint beachside community! The offseason is anticipated by locals for its cooler weather and quieter rhythm. It is also easy to navigate around town and if you buy property in North Myrtle Beach or Little River, everything you need is within 15 minutes’ driving distance.
1. The BEACH!
It never gets old, and you will never get tired of it. Walk for miles or just sit in the sand and enjoy the sound of the waves. Relax and soak in the sunshine or get in the water and jet-ski, kite-board, or surf. Fish off the pier or in the Cherry Grove channels. Witness stunning sunrises and sunsets over the water. It’s undoubtedly the best part of living here, and it is what draws millions of people here every year. How would you like to have it at your doorstep every day?
