North Myrtle Beach Real Estate News

As a transplant to the Myrtle Beach area I have a special appreciation for all that the Grand Strand has to offer.  Growing up in Upstate New York I would count down the days until Spring Break and my family's annual Myrtle Beach vacation, 16 hours of station wagon driving excitement with my parents and two older Charlie horse giving brothers followed by 5 days of miniature golf, ice cream with ocean breezes, hush puppies, boiled shrimp, and as much sunblock as my mother could slather on us.  My bothers and I would marvel at the fact that anyone actually "lived" at the beach, it was a foreign idea to our young minds that anyone could be lucky enough to live in Myrtle Beach along the Grand Strand. Living at the beach was just a dream.

As an adult I still think it is a dream to live in Myrtle Beach, and as a Realtor I help clients achieve that dream every single day of the year.  The Grand Strand is a commonly used to term to encompass the greater Myrtle Beach areas of North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Longs, Loris, Surfside Beach, Pawley's Island, Murrells Inlet, Conway and of course the city of Myrtle Beach. The Grand Strand is truly the greatest destination in the Southeast for primary home buyer relocation, retirement, investment / income producing property, and second homes. The Coastal Carolinas Association of Realtors reported in June that there has been an increase of 13.8% in the total number of homes purchased, and a 4.9% increase in sales price of property in the year to date.  The Grand Strand is earning recognition as being an affordable place to purchase Real Estate that has convenient access to many sought after amenities such as award winning championship golf courses, world class entertainment venues, over 1,600 restaurants, renowned shopping outlets,  free public beach access, sporting events / state of the art complexes, Coastal Carolina University, and so much more.

Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand truly has it all and as a transplant to the area I am here to tell you that YOU can have it all too.  There is a place at the beach for every buyer so every beach dream can become a beach Realty reality!  - blog post by: Lisa Gabriel, Manning Realty At The Beach
