|Myrtle Beach - A Peach
Within Reach by Preston Guyton
In spite of the prolific
building in Myrtle Beach, the realty market is booming here. Many second
home buyers are looking to buy in this area, where the warm weather is
more stable than further south. Who wouldn't want to live in this delightful
place? Myrtle Beach was voted #1 on a list of 'Most Popular Vacation Rental
Destinations' compiled by hotels.com; it has also been called the 'Golf
Capital of the World'.
There could be several reasons
why it has the "golf" nick-name. First, there are over 120 golf courses
located here, and the majority of these courses are open to the public
- a real plus. Alternatively, it could be the fact that a record 4.2 million
rounds of golf have been played at Myrtle Beach. Or could it be the fifty
miniature golf courses?
But forget the golf - just
come and look at this incredibly beautiful beach location. To visit Myrtle
Beach is to feel as if you have arrived somewhere exotic - and you have!
Each year upwards of ten million tourists visit this appealing area, to
enjoy the scenery, the climate and the southern hospitality.
Myrtle Beach is the hub of
the 'Grand Strand' beach area, sixty miles of the most exquisite and pristine
beach in the world. Reports indicate that this area of America is so sought
after that realty prices have held steady here during the national crisis.
Growth predictions bode well and with the time coming closer for the baby
boomers to retire, Myrtle Beach looks like a number one area to explore
for a possible home.
The number one reason is
probably the reasonable real estate prices that are still holding at the
But putting aside such crassness
as pricing: not only does Myrtle Beach have endless golfing opportunities
with moderate year round temperatures to make golfing so accessible - it
offers much, much more.
There is great shopping,
live Broadway-type shows, and a diverse choice of music, sports and restaurants.
It also has a very diverse selection of homes, from luxury to simple, from
high rise condo to single family bungalow - and so many of these homes
are brand new and sparkling.
Although the area has history
dating back to the 17th century, Myrtle Beach itself was only founded early
in the 20th century. It is a clean, modern resort, which has its own International
Developers have pushed ahead
of the curve in anticipating more growth with the influx of new businesses
and more tourism projects; there are new luxury apartments, condominiums,
town homes and regular homes to choose from.
Tourism will become an even
bigger money spinner for anyone who is interested in a little bed and breakfast
business. The area is soon to be opening its first one-of-a-kind "Hard
Rock Theme Park". This is a $140 million, 140 acre project which will house
roller coasters, an amphitheater, shows and roller coasters among its over
40 attractions. It will also include dining and retail - what a good idea!
In 2006 Myrtle Beach was
the fastest growing area in the USA, according to the US census. This would
indicate that a jump in realty prices could be just around the corner.
With mortgage interest rates
so low, and the properties in Myrtle Beach still going for a reasonable
price, it is worth a little trip here to just come and see. You will not
believe that such a captivating area is right on your doorstep unless -
you just come and see....
